I am trying to capture HDV footage from a Sony HDV deck into the VT5. I can capture DV footage without any problem, but when I put in an HDV tape, it won't capture the footage. I have tried using the speed edit "capture from DV/HDV" mode and through the regular capture mode. I am using Firewire 1394 as the connection between the deck and the commputer. It will not show a preview of the tape being played. The deck controller works the HDV deck without any problem.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Be sure to set your deck to HDV. The choices in the deck menu are probably auto, DV, HDV.

Use SpeedEDIT for the HDV capture.
