Default Re: S3 AVB not all Macs compatible

Any Mac with a TB port supports AVB. You can't make a statement like that for Windows machines (at least not yet). Also, I don't know of any AVB-enabled laptops and obviously laptops are ideal for recording from a Venue system. Hence, the focus on Mac support.
Thanks for explaining that Kyle
