I'm just trying to make it as straightforward as possible; which seemed to be the DenonLINK. Sadly, it seems that I was wrong about that.

Hmm... I just looked at the manual, and at first glance, firewire should work for all of the various formats. Can anyone confirm this? If so, what's the point of DenonLINK at all?
I am the Doctor, and THIS... is my SPOON!
