Hello friends smarter than I - (that's 99% of you - by the way) I'm having an issue getting my vx1000 camera and my Z1u camera to see the firewire signal from the M100. I've swapped cables twice, rebooted, reset the settings to dv and then reset them again. My cameras won't see the signal. Am I missing some step here. The M100 will actually control the camera if I go "Master to Tape" so I know there's signal. Is it possible that my dv port is bad on the P6000 board and will carry commands but not video/audio? Is there a latest hardware test that would show this ports health and where can I find it? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Both cameras are rated for dv in/out. Kind Regards, Chris

I checked for that. I found a workaround by going into my dvcam deck via SVHS which made a dvcam tape - then firewire from deck to camera to create the minidv version (deck only does dvcam). With three destinations not getting signal - there's got to be something wrong with the port. Thanks, Chris
The DV output on P6000 hardware is only active when in Capture or Master mode. It's not like the output on your JB and constantly spitting out a signal, so you really cannot expect to get a video out via M100 Firewire while simply editing, only when mastering.
