dumping DVR data from DCT3412 to MacBook
Hello fellas. I have a MacBook running Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.10 and I have a Motorola DCT3412 Comcast cable box. I've read two methods for extracting the video from the DCT3412 or DCT6412 DVR to a Mac via FireWire (IEEE 1394). One method said to hook up the FireWire then use the AVCVideoCap application that comes with FireWire SDK 20 to capture the video right off the cable box. The other method said to hook up the FireWire then use the AVCBrowser and VirtualDVHS applications that come with FireWire SDK 18 to capture the video from the cable box. I have FireWire SDK 23, which contains all three of the aforementioned applications, but neither of the methods work with this newer version of the SDK for some reason or another. I had two questions I wanted to ask.
