Is it a good idea to use both cables at the same time. Hdmi for the sound and the firewire cable for the picture. Will it work like that?
It would really depend on a bunch of different things: software capabilities, RAM, processing power, disk access. If you’re looking to use dual software programs for capturing audio (HDMI)and video (Firewire), then you’ll at least need a fair amount of handling and processing power with the factors in mind that I mentioned above. With the setup you have now, it’s definitely worth experimenting before purchasing upgrades.
