Anyone tried DVX100 firewire out to AJA KiPro? Is the FW out clamped? Will i get better than DV 25megabit bit rate on recording to SD ProRes via KiPro?

You can not connect the DVX to the KiPro via firewire. There isn't even an analog input.

You would need an analog (composite) to HDMI or analog (composite) to SDI adapter.

So the firewire 400 & 800 connectors on the kipro don't function as input/output I guess?

Correct those are for transfer to your computer as data, not Firewire video. KiPro is not really applicable to a camera like the DVX100 to be honest. It's meant more for HD cameras with more aggressive compression codecs. At 25 mbit for just standard definition, DV is a lot closer to 'uncompressed' than most HD codecs in use today all things being relative.
