H25 Firewire cable

Postby Saul G » Fri Jul 20, 2018 4:45 pm


Is there any reason a Tethertools Tetherpro Firewire 800 to 400 cable would not work with a H25 ?
My usual cable is a 2m 800 to 400 Firewire cable bought from ebay (not Phase One) and it works great, I needed extra length and like the bright orange of the Tethertools cable so bought one but sadly there are problems even with a Lindy Firewire repeater in use. The odd image will come through okay but others are strange green & magenta disasters and others just fail.
Tested on a 2011 Macbook Pro and 2017 iMac with results the same on both, other cable still works fine.
Many thanks in advance for any help.

Officially we recommend Phase One cables but there should not be a reason another cable would not work unless it is damages or have poor shielding.
