Thanks. In fact it turned out that nothing on my computer would recognize a rented HV40 in HDV mode for capture. At least not Ppro or HDVSplit. Tried all the reported fixes after searching many forums:

camera output to HDV/DV (not DVlock)- check.
try two different firewire cords - check (besides, it works for SD)
camera record mode to same mode (1080 24F) as playback - check
turn off camera and turn on again - check
camera playback standard set to auto or HDV (not DV)- check
camera-specific capture drivers installed on computer - check (canon site says not required)
computer's IEEE 1394 drivers current - check
PPro project setting matched to HDV footage res/framerate - check (tried every other project setting too.)
restarting Ppro while camera connected - check

the only thing I haven't tried yet is uninstalling the IEEE 1394 drivers - current though they are - and the re-installing them again. Saving up possible fixes to get the camera again and try them.
