    Howdy All...

    I have a problem getting video/audio from FCE thru my firewire to an external monitor.

    Nothing shows up on the monitor that's connected to the firewire device.

    I can capture video from the device but when I've edited it and then want to output it thru firewire...nothing.

    Does anyone have any suggestions???

    Thank you very much for all your help!

    What Mac OS X and Final Cut Express version do you use, what cameral model do you have and what exact steps have you already taken, even if they didn't work (to exclude us from giving you tips on things you already did)?

    I'm running Mac 10.5.8...and Final Cut Express 4.0.1

    I've already gone to "View"...then "Video Out"...and set it for Firewire.

    My firewire source is a JVC Video Cassette Recorder...Model # SR-VS30U

    I have used this source on a G4 mac and it worked for both capture and as a recorder source for Final Cut output.

    Could this simply be a problem that re-installing FCE would fix???

    Thank You for your help!!!
