[QUOTE="Stuart McKears"]\nNo, I didn't choose to miss it, you are choosing to miss the point that you, and\nyour site, talk about firewire/i-link/ieee1394 and you, and your site, don't\nmention "DV Terminal". Trevor's manual talks about the "DV Terminal" and\ndoesn't mention firewire/i-link though there is right at the back a single\nmention that .DV Terminal is ieee1394 compatible. There is, also, no mention of\nconnecting to a computer other than by the USB port.\n[/QUOTE]\n\nOh come on, he has bought a digital video camera, it doesn't take Albert\nEinstein to work out that, just may be, 'DV' means Digital Video. Not only\nthat, put ' DV "Firewire" ' into Google and even the lobotomised wood-louse\nthat Tony keeps on about would soon see that the two are related.\n[QUOTE]\nThat is the root of the problem.[/QUOTE]\n\nThe root of the problem is that some are either to ignorant to read a manual\nor to stupid to understand it, nothing more and nothing less.\n[QUOTE]\nYou somehow expect a complete beginner to realize and then understand, without\nbothering to tell him and in the space of about 4 hours, that a "DV Terminal"\nport is actually a 4pin firewire port.[/QUOTE]\n\nNo, he had asked about what cable he needed on the 8th Dec., anyone with\nhalf a brain would have used the time between then and the cable being\ndelivered to Google / RTFM...\n[QUOTE]\nI'm afraid that says more about your abilities to understand problems than\nTrevor's lack of knowledge.\n[/QUOTE]\n\nSorry but the time-line of events say everything about Trevor's lack of\nknowledge and his willingness to learn, preferring to have his solutions to\nhis problems spoon feed to him instead.
