As far as I can tell, unibrain seems to be the only one making PCILynx
firewire cards. I have found these cards:
The second one is a Fireboard-800, and goes for $63.99 USD, where the first
one is a Fireboard-400 and costs $249. The Fireboard-400 is PCILynx. On
unibrain's site, the Fireboard-800 is spec'd as using the TI TSB82AA2
IEEE-1394b OHCI-Lynx Controller. It has a single 1394a port and 2x1394b
ports. I can borrow an adapter cable from work to go from 1394b to 1394a.
I'm willing to buy the $64 card, but $249 is a bit much. Any thoughts if
this controller will work for the sniffing? What exactly does PCILynx
