    Been capturing for years live camera picture from Canon VIXIA HV40 camera via IEEE 1394. Recently got an opportunity to get hands on a quite old but professional Panasonic AG-HPX250p camera, but unfortunately it just does not appear as a source in Vegas, no matter what i try. I hope someone had a chance to use this model with Vegas, because i have read the entire manual, went though all its menu options and now i am not even sure this camera is even compatible with live image IEEE 1394 capture.
    Could it be an issue of drivers?
    I am on windows 8.1 and as long as i remember the Canon VIXIA HV40 camera worked out of the box and no additional drivers were needed, it immediately was available in Vegas as a capture device.
    I would really appreciate if somebody could help me to at least understand if Panasonic AG-HPX250p camera even supports live image IEEE 1394 capture to PC.

    Well, Panasonic AG-HPX250p does not appear to be a DV/HDV camcorder, thus it won’t work with FireWire like that. Your Canon VIXIA HV40was working fine, ebcause it’s HDV.

    Thank you for reply. I had a thought like that while going through entire manual 🙂

    Too bad, it was such a promising peiece of professional hardware.
