I can not find any devices that will work... This is the only one that
aleast I can capture with... Why doesn't Adobe support it... They are
a major brand and highly used?

Are you connecting via Firewire or USB?
Why doesn't Adobe support it
Just an educated guess here but, probably because Premiere Pro is a professional level NLE. Most professionals use professional level video cameras to record the media they intend to edit.
Oh, and also probably because editing other people's work (a.k.a. TV programs) without express written consent is not legal. So it kind of makes sense that Adobe would not support a device that would be used primarily for that purpose.
I first tried the ADS Pyro
I guess I understand, but we have recording our church services (for
local TV broacast) for over 4 years, (Adobe Premiere V1.5 with ADS
Pyro firewire, XP)... In Oct 2010. We had a fire and lost
everything... We're kinda professional, with 3 real good cameras and a
video switcher and capture services live, we also stream using a
Dazzle to the internet... But there isn't much of a choice for
devices... And can't afford the big boy capture devices...
We got a Dell XPS Studio W7Ultimate, upgraded to v1.5 to CS5, but Pyro
wouldn't work and company gives no support... Returned bought a
Blackmagic device, but they didn't support Dell motherboards,
something about how Dell MBs are modified, anyway, returned and bought
a HD PVR... It works great if I use their Capture Module, but now I
can't take advantage of Adobe's great capture abilties...
Is there any way to get it to work?
Congrats to what?
You can capture audio and video from a DV or HDV device by connecting the device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
You can capture DV or HDV footage from XDCAM or P2 devices. You can capture through SDI ports if your computer has a supported third-party capture card or device installed. Also, your computer must have the respective drivers.
All the confusion here is caused by incorrect terminology.
One can import or ingest material over a wide range of connections, Usually one talks about import when using USB and ingest when using HD-SDI.
Capturing is only possible over firewire from tape based cameras.
Using incorrrect terminology can lead to huge confusion. Think about asking the way and the person answering you says turn right at the second street where he meant turning left at the third street.
Look here: Adobe Forums: A glossary of video terms
. And can't afford the big boy capture devices...
Those big boy capture devices are included on most motherboards, so all you need is a cheapo firewire cable. That's not going to break the bank.

OK. The solution in this case is to get a video switcher that has FireWire output.
I have a Hauppage HD-PVR and use it in my HTPC. The Hauppage only works with USB - no firewire connection.
It uses the "analogue loophole" and records off the component outlets in 1080i or 720p.
Capture the video to your hard drive and you can then import the clips into Adobe Premiere Pro from your hard drive.
I transfer the files over a wired network to my editing computer first.
Adobe Premiere cannot import .TS files but it works with your other two choices, MP4 and M2TS.
If you're stuck with TS files, change the name of the file extension to .M2TS and Adobe Premiere will import it without difficulty.
Hope this helps.
By the way, you can also upgrade to the retail version of ArcSoft Total Media Extreme 2.0.
It works fine with the Hauppage HD-PVR.
Unfortunately your Hauppage HD-PVR (USB) will not do what you want as it has no firewire (1394) output.
Try the Pyro that should work or better get a Grass Valley converter.
Thanks for the helpful advice. It's appreciated. Before I boiu
We are using the Roland LVS-800 (doesn't have firewire) that "branches out"
to a DVD Recorder, various monitors througout the church, to our Video
Encoder being pushed to the web, and finally, to my capture station using
The video clips are on the hard drive of your "capture station".
If Adobe PrPro is installed on your capture station, just open PrPro and import the clips.
If not, transfer the clips to the machine that has PrPro installed and then import them.
You can use Media Browser to preview the clips and to import them.
Thx to you and everyone that offered help and suggestions! You're
appreciated for sure!
I was able to use the software that came with the Hauppauge HD PVR to
capture without a problem and will just import into Adobe PPro...
