      When recording direct-to-disc via a firewire connection, will most cameras be expected to pass audio and video or just video only?

      My JVC GR-DVL320a camera does not pass audio when in camera mode, though it does in playback mode. I am shopping for a new miniDV camera, and would like one that requires only a single firewire connection for direct-to-disc recording.

      I now have a new NV-GS230 (lovely 3 CCD miniDV camera). It exhibits similar behaviour. That is, I can record camera sound or tape playback direct-to-disc, but when I am playing back I can’t hear audio on the PC. There is no device listing for the DV audio source in Windows audio devices, but it does appear in my capture software (eg- Windows Media Encoder).

      It’s annoying… I’ve upgraded my audio drivers and would be willing to try a utility that could add monitoring so that I may cue to the correct place during capture. As a workaround, I am listening to the camera on headsets. During a live shoot, I am also unable to monitor audio on the PC, though I heard DVRack software can do it.

      I am inclined to think that Windows only lists analog sources, those that can accept a volume control. Anyone have additional insights?

      I don’t have a IEEE1394 deck here, so I can’t tell you exactly where to look, but most of the capture/editing software that I have used has an option somewhere to enable/disable input audio on capture.
