Only the DV portion of that card will work. The C-Cube based MPEG2 encoding is not supported.

Connect your DV camera/device with a Firewire cable, and use any ohci1394 compatible device - such as kino - to capture the footage.

It's not the firewire capability I want to use. It's the red, white, and yellow audio/video inputs/outputs. Thus, I need to get the saa1746 module working. Can you help with this? Thanks.
