Just to add, I plug my camera in using a firewire cable, the PC picks it up, asks me whether I want to use PPro or OnLocation. I choose PPro, press f5, I can control the device from within PPro, but I cannot see any video and NO frames get captured....

IF you have a camera that will shoot HDV, make sure both PPro and camera are set to the appropriate SD mode
If that doesn't work... try one of these instead of PPro
SD capture http://windv.mourek.cz/ or http://www.scenalyzer.com/main.html or http://www.exsate.com/products/dvcapture/
Do note that the demo version of ScenalyzerLive puts a watermark in the files it creates
- I'm told that the OLD version of Scenalyzer is freeware... check the download page for details
Thanks for the reply John. I always shoot SD. I tried scenalyzer but no joy. Same thing as happens with PPro ie i can control the device from within the programme but no video is showing. However, with scenalyzer, it did say that 'ScLive has not received any video from the driver'. All the drivers are there in the Device manager...I am not sure what drivers this alludes to.
I think that you might be too far along with the FW connection, as I am not sure that you would get device control, but take a look at this ARTICLE, as there are some driver issues with FW and Win7-64.
No I have not. I have captured HDV with a JVC BR-HD50, though no macine control (JVC and Windows 7 do not play nicely together and no help is coming). I did it by starting the tape locally on the player, the clicking [REC] in the capture window. The same did not work for DV, though.
Thank goodness I'm shooting DSLR now. Whew.
I have just tried with my old Pana NV- GS200 and it works fine. win 7 64 bit cs5.5. lenovo w701 lap top
