Haven't seen too much detail on quantity/type/cabling issues for the physical cameras that feed into BoinxTV, though I did catch a bit of a Boinx guy on live.twit.tv saying you could hook 2 firewire cameras to a single firewire port (how?), and that some (all?) Canons had a video lag on what they feed to firewire.
I'm getting a new intel mac mini with 5 USB ports (on 4 internal bus per tech article) and one firewire 800. I have several firewire cameras that I've been hooking up with firewire 400 cables on my old computer: Canon HV20, Canon ZR65, old Sony Handicam.
I have a used logitech quickcam with no driver disk: M/N:V-UF6, P/N:86151-0000, S/N: LZA04957012.
I've got a Griffin iMic (old silver disk style) USB audio in/out interface.
What's the most of the above firewire cameras I can hook up to BoinxTV, and what adaptor(s) will I need to go from a single firewire 800 to x number of small firewire plugs on these cameras?
If I have to go to USB cams for the 2nd or 3rd cam, are there any cams you recommend?
