Perfect. I don't know anything about Formac TVR, but this is exactly what I needed. A no-frills, simple interface and a straightforward way to just capture pure DV from firewire. No bloatware, no editing tools, just a simple capture client. I can't speak to its TV programming or channel organization features, since that is not what I am using it for. I basically wanted a way to avoid the bloated mess that is iMovie for capturing DV video. This fits the bill even better than I'd hoped. :) Thank you!

I wish this worked for the Plextor PVR (the TV tuner used by Elgato EyeTV system)too. Is this possible?

I can only support the previous reviewer. The Formac TVR in itself is a good device; the software Formac delivers as part of the product is totally crap. It is only through Mitz Pettel's Vidi that I can use the device to the full extent, including listening to and recording FM radio. A brilliant piece of software....
