      If you connect your miniDV camcorder to your pc via firewire and also connect it to a normal Tv via the video and audio cables could you use it as an external monitor like for watching the video on the tv while editing?…..also if that doesnt work, can you simply use a tv as a secondary monitor to preview video your editing?…

      Yes. Set up your NLE so that video and audio go out through firewire.

      also if that doesnt work, can you simply use a tv as a secondary monitor to preview video your editing?…

      I don’t know, but it doesn’t matter because going out through firewire and then to a TV WILL work.

      NLE stands for Non Linear Editor. I use Final Cut Pro, but I know you can connect an external monitor to Adobe Premiere, Avid, and I’m sure you can do it with Vegas.
