I find several using Google for "firewire bridge board". A lot seem a little expensive but there are a few affordable ones too.
The only problem I see is the power supply, I don't know if they convert power from a random DC source, if they do then you might be able to dig up a power brick from an abandoned piece of electronics.
Interesting...at least I know what to Google for now. That's helpful. Somewhat off topic, but my apartment was involved in a fire over the weekend (myself, my wife, and our stuff is all OK
), so this project is going to have to take a back seat for a while since we'll be living at my parents house for about a month or so.
But rest assured, once we get settled again, I'll be sure to report back with the results of this project.
