Currently Being ModeratedOct 29, 2008 2:17 PM (in response to Wiley207)Great idea but ... but probably no go ... The MovieBox sofware is PC only and it is unlikely that the MovieBox converter by itself will work with a Mac. You can try it, but since it requires the Pinnacle software it is not likely to work. And Pinnacle equipment in general does not have a good reputation working with Macs.
You could take the MovieBox to your local Apple Store and see if you can try it out on a Mac there. It can't hurt anything.
Have you considered getting an iMac instead of a MacBook? Or perhaps a refurbed MacBook that has a FireWire port - they're currently going for $850 to $1000 and carry the full Apple Warranty, and are also eligible for the 3-year AppleCare. My son has one and it's been working flawlessly from the day he bought it.iMacG5/2.0GHz/2GB/3.6TB, Mac OS X (10.4.11), eMac/1.25GHz/1GB/160GB, MacBookPro/2GHz/1GB/100GB, Too much other gear.
