I wrote XLR8 to see when the InterView's driver would be ready for OS X, this is therir response:
We are currently evaluating whether or not to provide InterView support for OS X. Please help us by answering the following:

1) InterView support for OS X will require new software. Would you be
willing to pay $79.95 for the use of InterView under OS X? If not, what would you be willing to pay for OS X support?

2) There are currently no native OS X applications for video editing that
support a USB solution like InterView. Which applications are you using in
the OS 8.x-9.x environment that you'd like to see functioning with InterView
under OS X?

3) Would you be interested in an analog to FireWire solution at a suggested retail price of around $179?

4) Do you use InterView for personal or business puposes?

5) How often do you use InterView?

As they state here, there is NO USB video solution for OS X yet, so iBook, iMac, and PC users without FireWire really have no option but for a USB device. If you feel the need, you can respond to this survey here, or by emailing XLR8 at [email protected]

1) No, since for that price I could be well on my way to a firewire video capture "solution." And besides, $79 is about what I *paid* for the damned thing in the first place. So now I have to buy it twice??

3) Yup. A lot.

4) Personal.

5) I'm using is right now. Before I was in X all the time, I used it daily to watch TV, and a couple to three times a week (sometimes more) to turn VHS video into Quicktime movies.

Honestly, I'm surprised you got this kind of response. Everything I've gotten from them has been *very* short. I'll send my response here on to them, as well.
