Thanks, under IEEE 1394 Bus host controllers it says "Texas Instruments 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller".
I'll have to change that to legacy somehow. I'm not sure how to do that at the moment.
With my video capture it has been saying offline like it doesn't recognise it at all.
I may have to end up going with HDV split but at present am concerned as to whether or not the port
Thanks, I changed it to legacy yesterday but still have the problem. Capture doesn't work with HVSplit either, just says offline. I'm going to check with the computer company tommorrow because the firewire port doesn't seem to have been tested as there was a small metal "buckle" blocking any firewire cable( that hadn't been removed or bent back)when I got the computer.
