I am running the trial copy of PE 10 on Mac OSX 10.7.2. My old Panansonic DV is connected through the firewire port and is recognised as device control is working. Project settings are for DV PAL 25 fps. When I play the camera no video is seen in the preview screen and when I try and capture I get an error message on hitting stop that says 'Recorder Error, no frames captured'. I have used the same set up with iMovie 11 and the dv is captured without problem.
I'm more of an Adobe user than an iMovie or iPhoto person so would like to use PE10 if I can get this issue resolved.
Any suggestions most welcome
DV via Firewire is absolutely perfect for PRE so what you describe is unusual. Using the same cable does iMovie capture the footage? If not it may just be a dodgy cable or connection.

iMovie is capturing the footage without any problem so the hardware seems OK. I thought I must have something set up wrongly in PRE.
