I read your mail, and ended up doing this:
fwcontrol -u 0 -M dv -R mini.dv
Using the onboard firewire chip.
When I combine the part about the '-M' flag:
-M mode Explicitly specify either dv or mpeg mode for the incoming
stream. Only meaningful in case of and must precede the -R
option. If not specified, the program will try to guess.
with the example:
fwcontrol -R original.dv
Receive a DV stream with DV camera attached.
To my eyes, it looked (and looks) as if the '-M' flag was optional;
and for whatever reason, I did not have to specify '-M dv' prior to
this instance; so fwcontrol guessed correctly for all previous
instances. Anyway, problem solved; thanks for your help.
Also, I apologize for the bounce; my alias was broken.
