    Hi there. New to the boards but desperate for help :D Im hoping this is the right board for it.

    I am trying to create a program to run under windows that requires streaming video from two camera sources. I have 2 canon dvcams that have firewire connections to computer ... is it possible to stream from both cameras at the same time? I will use DirectShow for the software connectivity but was wondering whether the hardware allows this? If I just connect the cameras both to two firewire ports, windows really complains about trying to view the stream from both of them at the same time... Is this a firewire issue? Windows issue? Software issue? etc. Any help greatly appreciated, thanks.
