Question about Canopus ADVC300 Bi-directional (631069702255) Video Capture

1 Answer

I was using the ADVC300 on my old MacPro G5. I just got a new iMac Intel 27" and can not figure out how to connect the unit to this machine.. Do I need a different cable then the IEEE-1394 since I do not see a connector on the back of the iMac that will accept this cable? and if so what do I need?

Connect box to Mac via FireWire

The connection would be, analog into device, firewire to computer. Play the analog device and import into iMovie, Final Cut or other editor. They should see the signal and therefore import to a digital file. Check with System Profiler to see if it sees the firewire device. If your software allows playing to the firewire device, the ADVC300, then you can record to those analog devices.

Hi Kim,
Yikes, an Android phone on an iMac G5...
It is probably an upgrade or an update that was not compatible with the G5 Processor... That machine is going on 10 years old now...

Try connecting it to another computer, a friends or at work, to see of it connects properly... if so, it's end of the line for G5's ;-(

Well it's a CD-RW to start with.
That means that is 5 years old or older,
You will need to replace that old CD-Rom with a new one. When you remove it, look at the cable connector and I'll bet it's a standard IDE interface. IDE should be stamped somewhere on the CD-Rom. That means that you wont have to buy your new one from Apple for 10 times the price it's actually worth. You can get a far better one at Walmart, Costco or BestBuy. Set the jumpers exactly as your old CD-Rom, install it and problem solved.

I have an iMac G5 2Ghz that when it start up you can only see video for a few seconds. I connected an external monitor and my iMac works fine but with its on LCD there is no video. I check the logic board...


Sir,
The iMac G5 and iMac G5 (Ambient Light Sensor) computers have a video out port located on the back of the computer, which will mirror video. Video mirroring means you can see the same image that is on the iMac G5's flat-panel display on an external monitor, television, or projector.
Using the video out port, you can mirror video with a compatible VGA display using the Apple VGA Display Adapter.
You can also use the video mirroring feature with a television or projector that has S-video or composite video connectors when you use the Apple Video Adapter.
Both the Apple VGA Display Adapter (M8639G/A) and the Apple Video Adapter (M9109G/A) are available separately, and are needed if you want to use your iMac with a VGA monitor cable, S-video cable, or composite video cable.
The video mirroring feature is "plug and play". Simply connect a VGA display, television, or projector to the appropriate adapter (see above), then connect the adapter to the video out port located on the back of the computer.
When you connect the adapter to the computer, the screen may refresh momentarily as the computer prepares itself for the new video output. The computer tries to match the resolution of the built-in and external display. If there is no match, the computer changes both screen resolutions and may black out areas on the built-in display in order to match the capabilities of the external display.
Important: To ensure that your iMac G5 automatically detects the external display or projector, be sure you plug the adapter into the external display or projector before you plug it into the iMac G5.
You can switch resolutions and frequencies for both the iMac G5 flat-panel display and the external display, television, or projector using Displays preferences.
Want to watch a DVD movie disc on a television that's connected to your iMac G5? Select a 720 x 480 NTSC (in the United States) or 720 x 576 PAL (in Europe and other regions) resolution in Displays preferences.
Tip: Because of the display limitations of most televisions, the images displayed on a television screen are usually not as high quality as those on the built-in display or an external monitor.


Thanks
Good Luck

It may be possible that the power supply, display and or logicbpard may be having issues. Apple recommends resetting the pram and nvram. If issue persists reset SMU. YOur machine is 6 months outside of the original warranty, but if you purchased the 3 year extension plan, you may want to take action on it.
