I just purchased an HV20 and I noticed my new Lenovo T60 doesn't have a firewire port. I ordered one up from Dell, so I suspect I should be good to go with that one as soon as that card arrives.
Now I have an older PC that does have a firewire port on it. It's an HP with P4 2.53 GHz with 1 GB of RAM, and I think the video card is a 64MB nVidia card. I just recently upgraded it to Vista. Will I be able to use this machine to at least get the video off the camera. I assume editing wise it probably isn't strong enough. Will I suffer quality issues if I use this PC to export from the HV20?
I also want to thank everyone that has posted sample videos on this forum. They have been awesome and completely sold me on the HV20.
