I’ve attached my Panasonic NV-DS8 cam to a FirewirePort. It can be used as a high-res webcam now. The problem is, that the cam shuts down when you don’t use it (after a few minutes). With normal use, this auto-shutdown is good to save batteries, but for webcam-use it’s pretty annoying. Is there a way to disable this? I’ve been looking for a manual on the web, but no luck (cam is not the newest ;)). I can’t find any “switch” in the cam’s menu either.
