Whats the reason you can't use premier pro?
Any older Laptop with a firewire card built in might be little difficult to find. But you can get a desktop and put a pci express firewire card into it really easily.

If you wanted to shoot on tape why didn't you get a DVX? A HVX just for SD is a bit much but that's my opinion. Like the person above said, either an older laptop or a card you put into a desktop. Simple

Completely read over that part about the SD on HVX. Most def would suggest a dvx or even a vx2100.

if i recall correctly, the hvx200 doesn't have a port to connect it to computer for dv to firewire.... your best bet would be to get a p2 card (ebay has em for like 100-200 for a small one) and just film HD........

It does, but only works on a mac, for PC you need to use the mini USB port.

But yeah why have you bought an HVX to film on tapes? That's a colossal waste of money. Like others said grab some P2 cards and use it how it's supposed to be used, or get a VX/DVX
Stop hating and actually learn something about textile production. You dont know shit about that.

Iíve tried with an old ass fully functional macbook and with a newer one but i think the issue is with the macs. On The first computer the software was too old to do pretty much anything. And on the new computer the software was too new so even when I would go to Premier Pro and go to capture settings the only option that would show up would be HTV. Iíve captured successfully DV on my friends desktop thru 2016 premiere pro so I think Iím leaning closer to building my own computer to just make this editing process to make this work

I'm using the latest version of Premiere and you can definitely still capture in DV

Well ain't that some shit. One reason for OP to get a PC then, on top of saving about $2000

Nope it has a 4pin firewire port behind the USB port

HDV? Might be something in the settings you need to change or maybe when you create a project!

i didn't use a hvx200 in 10 years, but i remember it was weird switching the capture mode from P2 to DV, and you had to change some settings in the menus.

when you re in playback mode, check in the menu if AV IN/OUT is set to: 1394 out

It's just a switch on the back to go from the cards or the tape. And you'll wanna go to USB settings or something like that
