[PD] IEEE 1394 Vid Capture

Actually, I finally found a way to make it work marginally. If you go to http://www.hauppauge.com/html/sw_nt.htm and download the "Video Capture Driver" (it seems to work for all windows, not just NT like it says on the page) you should be able to get windows to recognize the camera at least. After I installed that pix_video_ds recognized the device but crashed as soon as I tried to start rendering anyway. Hopefully you'll have better luck on that part. Plain pix_video does not seem to recognize the driver. Some capturing programs will be able to capture from the device. It's too bad to hear linux is no better on this point, I'm going to start dual booting it this weekend, and had hoped that it wouldn't have this problem. Good luck.
