MiniDV Camcorder / Cap Software...
on Nov 15, 2002 at 4:30:31 am

Making the assumption that you can program you cable box to change channels (one of the components of a vcr timer -- they call it "reminder" on the cable box), and that one is using a miniDV as your capture device (the cable box has rca out, and the miniDV has appropriate inputs)...

Is it possible to use any of the major capping software to control when the cam starts recording and stops recording, given a firewire connection between them?

Basically, I want to use a timer feature from a software product on my PC to make my Sony miniDV start recording at pre-programmed times. And I would have to use the "reminder" feature of the cable box, as the miniDV doesnt have its own tuner...

Can I do this?
