Firewire to USB? Interesting idea...
I've purchased two USB fans off of Amazon.com and will be placing them in my home theater cabinet downstairs. It gets awfully hot in there and I'll be using these two fans to move air.
Now, my cable TV box has two IEEE 1334 Firewire ports on the back. I'm considering purchasing some sort of adapter that will allow me to plug in my usb fans into these firewire ports, so that everytime the cable box is turned on, these two fans will automatically turn on also.
1. Is there such a thing as a firewire to usb adapter that will work for my use? I've read threads where people say this isn't possible, but eBay has a TON of these.
2. I would technically need a FEMALE usb to MALE firewire port, correct? If the firewire port is in the cable box and the USB port will be plugging into a USB port. I'm just confused as to the type of adapter I'd need... can't really find the correct one anywhere.
