I am using Adobe Premire Pro 6 with a ViewCast Osprey 260e Capture Card. After following all of the troubleshooting advice available (such as http://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/kb/cant-capture-dv-hdv-video.html), Premire Pro still does not recognize the card, as any attempt to capture video results in "Capture Device Offline". I am able to capture video with freeware such as VirtualDub. My main question is, is this card compatible with Premire Pro CS6?
No it's not. PP captures over FireWire out of the box, or with aftermarket hardware from AJA, Blackmagic, Matrox and Bluefish.
PPro will only use a "card" when the card vendor has written a device driver to act as a "bridge" between PPro and the card's hardware
If your card vendor has not written a device driver that is specific to PPro, your card will not work
I have a Pinnacle DV500 card to digitize video from a VCR... and I have to have a dual boot setup so I may restart my computer and use WinXP and the OLD Premiere 6.5 to be able to use the old device driver that Pinnacle wrote for Premiere 6x... and never updated to Premiere Pro
