    I just got a AV-to-USB converter thingy (technical term) and connected my G3 into my computer (av port to standard G3 AV out cable to AV/USB converter to USB port). With the free "Debut" video capture program, I can get a live view of the viewfinder on the G3. I plugged a G5 in the same way, and Debut seems to know that it's there, but I just get black, or sometimes black with a band of noise at the bottom, from the G5's video feed.

    Is live AV out a feature on the G3 that's missing from the G5? Or is there some arcane menu setting that I haven't found yet that will make this work?
