    Premiere Pro "Can't activate recorder. Try resetting camera."


      I have done a clean install of Windows 7 on a hp xw8600 with 8GB of RAM. The specs are:

      vnvidia quadro fx 1700 driver

      nec lcd1860nx

      blackmagic intesity pro (software v 3.6)

      panasonic dv deck AG-DV1000 via firewire and also composite out to the intensity pro

      premiere pro cs4 v 4.2.1


      With premiere capture format at "DV", device control at "dv/hdv", device brand Panasonic, device type AG-DV1000P, I get the above message when I launch the capture tool and I have no deck control. I have tried two firewire cables with no change.


      I have a Sony client monitor and can see good video from the second  composite output of the Panasonic deck.


      If I set the capture format to Blackmagic Capture and in the Blackmagic Control Panel, I set the input to "NTSC/PAL (Y in) and Analog RCA Audio", I get deck control but I get no video on the NEC monitor and I get no audio.


      It seems like this should be easy to set up but I can't figure out what's wrong.
