in my previous post, I had problem with block noise while capturing. The problem seemed to be gone now after a couple cleaning cycles.

This time is a question about daisy chain firewire devices while doing capture with the deck.
I used an imac with 1 400 port and 1 800 port. when daisy chained with couple of firewire 400 drives and then to the deck, i experienced drop frame every time. So i moved all the drives to the 800 port with an adapter and left the 400 port dedicated for the deck; everything then worked out perfectly.

anybody have similar experience? I read in the LAFCPUG, someone said he had no problem with daisy chain all the devices - in reality is it a okay practice?

Its always best to have devices like camcorders and decks separate, its been a long time but I think the problem is most don't have an addressable ID like Optical devices and disks so bus control is problematic, even daisy chaining two cams and or decks can be problems

so i guess imac is bad for capturing at this point then. what about a hard drive and a deck? still problematic?
if it's the ID of the machine, that means a firewire hub will not make a difference, correct?
