Hi there

You need to plug a firewire cable from the back of your Mac into a DV camera or deck, and then take the output from the Camera/Deck to a TV.

In Final Cut Pro go to the View Menu, scroll down and choose View External Video.

If this doesn't work check the following:

You're Easy Setup (under the Final Cut Pro HD Menu) is set to DV PAL.

That you are working in a DV Timeline.

Also, check that your camera is switched on and set to VCR or, if using a deck, that the input is set to DV in.

You also need to make sure the input to your TV is set to AV - meaning the TV is displaying the output of the Camera/Deck.

Feed your audio into the TV or a set of external speakers.

Restart you Mac if necessary.

Good luck!


P.S. No you do not need a capture card.
