  • Converting from SD Hardware to HD Hardware

    Hi all! This forum has been a great resource to me, for many years. Thanks for all your thoughtful and informative posts.

    I would love to ask your advice about HD hardware patching options.

    Currently, I'm patching together my computer, HD Tivo and HD DVD player through a Panasonic AG-DV100 MiniDV deck. Obviously, my HD standard comes to a screeching halt as soon as it hits the MiniDV deck.

    So my question is, since I no longer use the MiniDV tape format what can I use to serve as a pass through that will maintain my HD signal? I'm so used to using my Firewire/IEEE 1394 cable for computer input/output, I'm not sure how to get HD images in or out, without the MiniDV format.

    Does that make sense?

    (And of course, I need as affordable an option as possible.)

    Thanks in advance, for your words advice!


    P.S. I'm using the new MacBook Pro.
