IEEE1394/FireWire Capture question

I have been trying to use dvgrab to capture Video to my LinuxBox for a while now with no luck. It seems to capture, but then when I play the video back, it can't render an image no matter what format I use to capture.

I am wondering if anyone is successfully capturing video using FireWire, and how.

I have checked out the Linux FireWire Website and have downloaded everything and tried.

I must be doing something wrong.

I have tried to use other capturing programs, but with no success. Any help would be great.

Have you checked out Video For Linux (V4L)? Don't know it it'd solve any problems, but it'd be worth looking into.
