Is it possible to find a 6pin to firewire cable? And if so is it still possible to use firewire on everios even though they only come with USB?

I don't think you can use firewire on an everio that only comes with USB, though I have seen some USB to Firewire converter cables...not sure how well they work, but pretty sure that it won't let you outpot the video for importing in realtime...which I'm guessing is what you are wanting to do.

Just import the video files (.mod) from the camera to your computer via USB file transfer, and convert them from there.

I read about this problem the other day, and it is something to do with the record mode or rercord standard you are using. So NTSC is 29.97 frames per second, and your TV tries to scan at that rate, but if you recorded in PAL which is 30 fps, then you get black lines, and vice versa i imagine from PAL tv with recorded NTSC settings.

Also could have something to do with interlacing the video during conversion. May be a setting for de-interlace that needs to be selected/un-selected.

if you can't find the answer here....search on forums.macrumors.com in the digital video section.

Best,

Brain

I ended up using Capty Mpeg which came with the camera switching from ffmpeg, which was a great help as the black lines stopped occuring, although i have not watched on TV screen yet but will let u know wat happens!! And will take your advice if doesnt work!!
The onl prob with Capty (minor) is that the footage colour seems to be dimmer once encoded through this!!! but this is no prob at all!!!
Thanks
