I'm new to mac's. Im attempting to hook up my mac (macbook pro 15") to my DVR cable box to record shows. Im wondering if anyone could point me in the right directions. I've downloaded a program "hacktv" which i believe is what its for. But I'm having trouble hooking to the macbook to the DVR. The DVR I have is a Scientific America Explorer 8300HD. It has a 6pin firewire in the back which i was hoping to just use a firewire w/ 6pin on either side and simply hook it up. It didn't see any connection though.
Can anyone recommend some websites or thoughts on how to get this to work?
