    Default Firewire cards 800 to projectmix I/O

    I'm wondering, since there's less and less firewire 400 cards on the market with a TI chipset, would there be any problem using an 400 to 800 adapter with the PMIO?

    Thanks mate! Any adapter of preference?

    Yes I remember those, you might want to remove the pyro from the list as it's discontinued. And the link for it brings to no where either

    I'm using a cheap Syba Fw800 Expresscard for my laptop and a Belkin FW400 for my desktop. The main thing is a TI chipset, but that list is a good rule of thumb since AVID has tested them specifically.

    SIIG are generally the best in my opinion.

    Yep, as for the adapter, what I mean is is there a better model for the 400 to 800 adapter?

    like this for instance

    Can you recommend any at all?

    Gotcha, I dont use an adapter. I have a FW800 to FW400 cable like this http://www.amazon.com/Oyen-Digital-F...2416039&sr=1-1 I dont remember the exact brand, probably something off ebay... I'd prefer to have one less connection in the mix.
