Hi - I'm looking at purchasing a used AJ-HD1200A deck for ingesting some HD and DVCPRO50 tapes. This particular deck only has firewire, not SDI. Is there significant quality loss when capturing HD material via firewire? Also, does anyone know if you can capture all 8 audio channels via firewire?

Thanks in advance for any guidance!

There is NO LOSS when using FW.

It's all 0's & 1's

Hi There, this deck does have more than just firewire - it has 2xHD-SDI out and 1xHD-SDI in, DVCPRO/DV via firewire, 4xaudio XLR out, 4xaudio in, component out via bnc

The deck is very awkward to use and gives me interminable headaches - there are many options and 99% of the switching is done via menus - you'll need to really set up your menus well (only accessible with external monitor) and if you're using a kona or similar really set up for your frame rates carefully otherwise this will just give you lots of headaches like I have.
