Has anyone tried i-link with a Pioneer DVR 520h-s? It supports firewire connectivity....? I would give 'er the ol' college go myself, but the $800 price tag is a little prohibitive....

I couldn't make it work with the Pioneer DVR-510H. I got a message on the screen that "no camera was attached". I've tried this with both a DCT6200 and a DCT6412.

Never checked SD channels because I have a TiVo for that which works so much better and can send data via LAN for the purposes of archiving via PC. I just checked MC and TLC to sample and neither had 5c turned on.

Works well with the Mac - I have a lowly G3 350

Ideally update to the latest version of OSX

Then download the firewire SDK from Apple or use iRecord
The SDK has several options to record - I use AVCVideoCap from the SDK, and it works well

With slower Mac's like mine, I have seen it said that it actually works better with a FW drive (IDE drive in a FW case) on the other FW port - apparently gets fewer buffer overruns - I have not noticed this, and generally find relatively few errors in the files when I check them with MPEG2Repair ( a PC application)

There are several posts on this here, and lots of info (too much!) at AVSForum

Also If I'm wanting to add extra memory or an external hard drive for more capacity on my DCT6208 is it possible?
Not possible, & probably never will be. So many features, so little utilization. Sigh. :(
