Fellow members, Here's the deal: my mom's dying and I live on the other side of the world. Before heading back home to be with her, I thought it would be nice to spend what will undoubtedly be our last Christmas together via iSight. (My flight leaves on Jan. 16th.) So I ordered one for my folks from the Canadian Apple store and it arrived a few days ago. The camera turns on and picks up the image of the user but the little camera icon on the buddy list doesn't highlight and it won't allow you to start a video chat. The camera obviously works but there's some problem getting the computer or iChat AV to recognize it. Any suggestions? (It's a 800 MHz iMac with Panther and, supposedly, all the software updates.) Merry Christmas, Squire P.S. If you're wondering, Mom had been feeling ill and acting in an uncharacteristic manner (i.e. not wanting to socialize and do the things she normally takes joy in). The doctors were stumped and did some more scans and found a brain tumor. The doctors removed that "successfully" and Mom had a new lease on life, it seemed. Unfortunately, tests on the tumor revealed that it was not the primary source. Two and a half months later, they still can't find the primary and cancer has reformed in her brain. To make a long story short, the doctors are giving her a few months. My intent is not to be a downer on this joyous day. But maybe we should take an extra second to give that hug or handshake this holiday season, especially in the case of loved ones far away. Oh, and help with the iSight would be nice. Thanks.
