TTG 1928 for Sunday 18 September 2022

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

Regarding the very last caller on the Tech Guy show yesterday, episode #1928

Would that camcorder of his not have a Firewire port or was miniDV only analog? I have a CANON camcorder but I think that uses DAT format and so it’s digital as recorded. I can output the original digital data via the FIREWIRE port on the camcorder… I’d have to check but perhaps miniDV wasn’t digital as recorded? That would be odd though as I would assume that the “D” in “DV” meant digital.

Anyway, if that camcorder of his has a Firewire output port, then ideally he can scrounge up a Firewire card for his computer (or a USB Firewire dongle) and then he could pull in the recordings in their original digital format and capture all the data.
