Connecting Other IEEE 1394 Devices
One of the great advantages to 1394 components is the ability to connect one device to the next in a single chain. This is known as “daisy-chaining.” Previous audio and video components often required connections of each component to a single source such as an audio/video receiver or TV.
With IEEE 1394, simply connect one device to the next in a continuous chain using 1394 cables.
The 1394 interface reduces the number of cables needed to connect each device and simplifies the connection process. There is no need to ensure that you are connecting the correct audio or video cable to the correct jack. IEEE 1394 devices use a single cable to transfer audio, video, and interface data between all devices connected within the chain.
The DVR has two 1394 ports. This allows you to use one port for connection to your digital television and still have another port for connection of additional 1394 components. Each compatible DTVLink device connected on the IEEE 1394 chain is shown on the TV. Information can be sent between 1394 connected components. DTVLink and other compatible components can be controlled from your TV.
Component Connection Methods
There are two ways to connect IEEE 1394 and DTVLink devices: component-to-component and hub connection. The component-to-component method has each component connected in a chain-like fashion, with the DTV as the first component. The hub method is basically the same but uses both 1394 jacks on the DTV with two chains of components connected to it.
Note: Use a single 1394 cable to connect one device to any available 1394 port on the next device. If devices such as a digital camera only have one 1394 port, these devices should be placed at the end of the 1394 chain.
