Has anyone hooked up a device using its firewire output to a Mac and then daisy chain the Mac's firewire to another Mac? I have a video deck that needs to be shared between two users, but not at the same time. I am not sure if having two Macs on the same firewire will cause a conflict.
Thanks for any information.
 
Solution
I dont think that will work. To connect 2 macs together via firewire one of them needs to be booted in in target disk mode and that will only allow access to the harddrive.
