[QUOTE=goodcompany;2512093]what is this idiot puzzle against a simple question?

That’s the strangest thing. It’s no puzzle at all. According to the normal Firewire recording schematics and procedure… you just press record on the recording device or press play on the playing device. The DV takes care of the internal communications.
If you could also tell us what you connected at the other end of the 1394 cable? A pc? A recorder? A toaster?
