I'm using external firewire audio controller (Saffire) for the conversion. I have one in hand and it works well.

We returned the units. No matter what I do, I could not keep the video in sync (vertical sync) and audio sync drops after 1-2 hours - even though we use TBC. We reverted back to Blackmagic Intensity Pro cards and external encoding server. The server implementation is cheaper and faster anyways. X264 also produces better stream as you have total control of the H.264 options.

I would not recommend the unit for any SD material. Works pretty well with HD though and I think that the unit is mostly meant for users that need to get a lot of small clips online and fast. For archiving this is not robust enough.
