JVC 250 and 720p 24 works on Intel but not G5???

Yo Kids!

Client shot some JVC 24P on a HD250. connected it up to FCP 5.1.4 os 10.4
on a dual core G5, loaded Easy Setup 720p 24, and NADA, no control, no video, ZIP, ZERO!

thrashed around with it for a couple of hours, various combinations of starting machines, connecting, launching, and still nothing.

did extensive searching on this forum and Google looking for answers, and did not find anything conclusive...mostly other people having similar symptom, and one ex prince from nigeria want us to help him get his millions back (just kidding on that last bit)

Soooo

rather than spend too much time and frustration, i just hooked it up HD SDI to the Kona LHe in the machine, and captured the necessary footage using Capture Now.

NOW IT GET INTERESTING:

just before we packed up the camera to give it back, we tried it on our Intel quad core also running FCP 5.1.4 and OS 10.4.

hooked it up same, camera settings same, loaded Easy Setup 720p 24 and BAM! Sound, pictures, tc, control all perfect!

WAHTS THE DEAL?

My keen trouble shooting mind immediately comes to the conclusion that the EZ Setup 720p 24 doesnt work on the G5, or that there is something up with the G5 that "bollocks it up" as it were.

anyone else have or observe this problem? any thoughts on whether or not its a global G5 issue, or just my G5, and why?

thanx in advance!

no it works perfectly fine on a G5.

did you try an alternate firewire port?

try the front if the rear is what failed.

We did try both Firewire ports and different cables. Also rebooted both the computer and camera multiple times. The only time the camera was seen by FCP, Dual 2.7GHz PowerPC connected via Firewire, was when we captured a test DV clip recorded with the camera. Able to capture HDV from a Sony deck fine, but JVC HDV playing back on the JVC 250 was problematic.
