I should have mentioned this in my first post...
I am looking for any firewire controller card that is compatible with Debian. I was only asking about that particular card because the Newegg ad said it was Linux compatible.
I want whatever card that works best for transferring DV from/to my Sony camera. My camera has 4 pin DV output. I mainly want something that has the most features, whatever that may be. I'm not sure if I want to spend extra to get a 800 card yet, since I don't have anything that uses that.
I have never used firewire before, so I am not really sure what firewire card would be best to get. The computer I am using only has PCI slots.
Also, what would you recommend for a DV editor? I installed Kdenlive and Kino but haven't spent much time using either one of them yet.
I was also wondering if there was a way to connect two cameras to the firewire and do linear editing between the two cameras while using software to control them? I was digging through Wikipedia's sections about DV, but didn't notice anything describing that. I am about as green as it gets concerning DV editing and using cameras with firewire, so I really don't know much about what is possible to do with it.
I was wanting to try Cinnelara but can't seem to get that to install for anything. I know Cinnelara is for high-end editing, but I would really like to check it out sometime. I downloaded several iso files for live distros that supposedly included it, but it has been missing from the ones I tried so far. Would you happen to know which live distro media actually does include Cinnelara?
