from computer to dvd recorder

Hi,
I use FCP and recently bought a go video (vr4940) DVD Recorder+VCR. You can directly import DV to DVD through a "firewire in" port -from a DV camera.
What I have discovered is the following:
1. I figured that if I play from the timleline and connect a firewire cable to the deck, it will not recognize the computer. it gives a message to the effect of "there are too many devices connected" (and there was only that one device). Does anyone know of any firewire converters that would somehow take the signal from the computer and convert it to a dv signal to "trick the deck" that a camera is attached instead of a computer?

2. I also thought that I would get better quality video if I connect the camera with the firewire for recording onto vhs. wrong again! The video comes out jittery. It's better with s-video. Does anyone else have experience with these devices?

Thanks!
Philip
