    Hi all,

    We're having a bit of trouble with a new ADS Tech Pyro A/V Link. It
    doesn't show up as a valid capture device for iMovie on a Mac, or for
    Adobe Premiere Elements on a PC. The Mac does show it as a FireWire
    device on the Profiler. The power light (which I think is a status
    light) is yellow --- should it be green?

    Does anyone have any idea on whether the unit is working properly and
    we're doing something wrong, or could it be defective?

    Thank you,

  2. The device itself does not show up anywhere. The device is attached to the
    1394 and when capturing use that choice. In Premiere you select to capture
    and then you must hit the 'play' button on the capture module. This opens
    the link. Start playback of the analog device attached to the A/V Link and
    you should be fine.

    Whenever a DV device is attached the capture program should reflect it
    accordingly. The Pyro A/V Link is merely a device that keeps the 1394 port
    open and ready for signal fed through the analog inputs. Read the little
    manual that came with it, perhaps the answer to this mystery is there...ya
