Firestore 100 - won't 'play clip'

Folks,
I cannot seem to get my FS 100 to 'play clip' in conjunction with my HDX900.
Googling presents no answers.
Anyone w/experience mind walking me through?
Thank you,
JR

HDX900 is firewire out... it does not take a signal in via firewire. If you are trying to playback clips from your FS into the HDX to view... it won't work.

Scott, thank you for that.
Unfortunate -- and puzzling. Tape plays back in the viewfinder -- but I suppose that's somehow an internal function, and not thru the firewire?

The process of playing back from the heads and the FS-100 is very different. The handshake protocol for the FS does not exist in the camera, I know on paper it sounds pretty staright forward but its actually apples and oranges. You would need a laptop to view your content.

Yes, the FW bus on the camera is just an output and not an input. I think that is weird to do on Panasonic's part... seems simple enough that you could input into the cam thru FW... but who knows.

Likely a missing feature that keeps you buying more Panny cameras down the road!
