    I just got a new Sony TRV-18, Firewire card, and MainActor for Linux.
    When I go to the DV Capture tool in MainActor, it says:

    No drivers found - you will to manually load these drivers as root
    using modprobe or similar tool. Both raw1394 and dv1394 are

    Linux says my Firewire card is working fine, so what do I need to do
    to get MainActor to allow me to capture video from the camcorder?

  2. You may need to specufy a different device name. If you use devfs (most
    current linux distributions do), the names of the firewire device have
    changed (so that you may have a number of devices plugged in).

    If you use the DV driver, for example, /dev/dv1394 has become
    /dev/ieee1394/dv/host0/NTSC/in and /dev/ieee1394/dv/host0/NTSC/out.

    Specify to MainActor which device to use in the configuration...
