View Full Version : [SOLVED] Capturing DV-video FireWire

April 8th, 2011, 07:51 PM
Hello everyone,

I want to capture DV-video through IEE1394 (FireWire) with Kino and Ubuntu 10.10

Seems I can't capture... When I plug in the camera there is no hot plug message (if there should be one? I've read it should...).

The DV-out on the camera is enabled ;-) There is no option to enable/disable the port in my BIOS.

Some information:

a~# lspci | grep 1394
07:09.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Ricoh Co Ltd R5C832 IEEE 1394 Controller (rev 05)

Hope there are some command to check?

Thank you

Found the solution: I replaced the (cheap) FireWire cable with a more expensive one and it worked like a charm! So great :-)
