I am having a problem with connecting our JVC SR-DVM700 deck to our laptop (using Premiere Pro) with the firewire. The connection is inconsistant.
We have a wall mounted HD video camera that feeds into a down converter box (tvOne C2-1100) that feeds into our JVC deck through S-video. From the deck I go firewire into the laptop.
What I want to do is hook up the laptop to the JVC via firewire and capture live footage (real-time) straight into Premiere Pro without having to go to tape first.
When I hook it all up, I can see the live image feed from the deck inside of Premiere... but when I press record in the capture window, the JVC deck goes blank and Premiere won't capture anything. But the really strange thing is that sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't.
I can capture footage from a tape with no problems.
Does anybody have any ideas on how to make this work consistantly?
Thank you so much for any input.
