I had submitted a bugreport to Debian a while ago
on an issue I was having with ieee1394 video capture
In the meantime I did not have any time for video
processing, so it never really went anywhere. Plus
Debian's kernel maintainer quit and they switched to
team maintenance. I am looking at it again now, and
want to check with the kernel ieee1394 team on it
since it doesn't appear to be a Debian specific (I
tested with kernel.org sources at one point). I hope
someone can take a look.
From the above-referenced bugreport, the versions
of software have changed (I'm running kernel 2.6.16 on
Debian Sid now, plus everything else up-to-date), but
the problem still persists. To give a summary, I have
a Sony camcorder (not DV, just analog) and a Datavideo
DAC-100 converter to get it into ieee1394 for Kino to
import to my computer through an iWill ieee1394 PCI
card. Everything worked fabulously with kernels up to
2.4.20, but nothing after that. A great deal of
information is in the bugreport (dmesg output, lspci
info, etc.) for multiple kernel version, but if
anything else is wanted, just let me know.
I've tried searching to see if anything like this
has come up since I submitted the Debian bug report,
but didn't really find anything. The one thing I
found related to the error messages was adding
"options ieee1394 disable_irm=1" to the modprobe
process, but it didn't solve the problem, just kept
the "ieee1394: Current remote IRM is not 1394a-2000
compliant" messages from coming up during booting.
Those errors still happen when I try to capture video
in Kino until I turn off the DAC-100.
Thanks so much,
