1394 Header pin-out

I have a PCI card with USB and Firewire ports, external and internal. For the internal Firewire (1394) connections, it has an 8 pin header (individual pins) and the standard large firewire connection. I need the definitions of the individual pins so I can connect my front Firewire connector.

    It is a PCI card - not connected directly to the motherboard.
    You can see the 8 pins that are connected to the same lines as the regular firewire connection, but I have no documentation on what pin goes to what for the Firewire, and the 8 pin does not seem standard (I have seen some 10 pin header diagrams, but not 8).

Does moviebox usb work with studio 14 and vista? I can't get my camera to show as an import device when connected to the movie box.


This is the latest hardware device that can used for Studio 14.

Check the list.

USB based
  • 710-USB
  • 510-USB
  • 700-USB
  • 500-USB
  • MovieBox Deluxe
  • DVC-103
  • DVC-107
  • DVC-100
  • DVC-90
  • DVC-130 (There are no 64-bit drivers for this product.)
  • DVC-170 (There are no 64-bit drivers for this product.)
PCI based
  • 700-PCI (a.k.a. Pinnacle Studio Deluxe 2)
  • 500-PCI (a.k.a. Pinnacle AV/DV)
  • Any 1394 cards.

Are you using vista 32 or 64 bit system? If Vista 64 bit there is no driver for your device and the only available is 32 bit only. Aside from that you can check also the video cable you were trying to used. If firewire under import/capture tab of Studio 14 you need to select the name of your camcorder or dv camcorder. Check that out and try.

PC TV PCI Internal Card w/ Phillips SAA7130 PCI TV Card


You don't need to do anything with the modem at all, other than remove it. Uninstalling the modem drivers will not affect theTV Tuner. Removing the card will disable the feature automatically, so dont worry about that. As far as the TV tuner is concerned, just pop it in, and install the software. If the software is giving you troubles, try going to manufacturer's website and search for drivers.

I just purchased a 2 port 1394 Card - Nexxtech


This seems to be a basic hardware conflict; shut down and UNPLUG the system, then MOVE the 1394 card to a different slot on the motherboard, then reattach the AC power cord, reboot the system, and see if the problem has been solved.

Let us know what happens...
