Final cut pro question

I have a macbook pro and a Gy JVC Dv500 and final cut. I try to capture footage live but when i click capture it says there is a black screen and it says there is no time code. It also says the same thing hooked to my g5. I tried capturing while recording to tape but that didn't work. So if some one could help, PLEASE.
When In doubt attack.

Make sure firewire out is enable in the camera menu (ie live output).
Make sure you are set up correctly in FCP and use easy setup (ctrl + Q).
I don't have this camera so I can help beyond these suggestions.

If you are trying to capture live you need to change Device Control to Non-controllable device.

I lost a lot of time . Note that iMovie working well, note that my ibook g4 with FCP 5.0.2 working well in DV mode, Note that with FCP 6.0.3 the issue SEARCHING FOR MEDIA is present when working with JVC PRO HD in HDV mode. So, what happend Apple??? Some people say that the problem is Quicktime 7.4.1 or 7.4.5 , then, the question is, how reinstall a previously version of quicktime , for example 7.3.1 without reinstall the system??? another question, any one know which version of final cut pro and quicktime working well with DV and HDV 720P ????. Some people in Argentina , they work in DV PAL, have the same problem. Another thing is that last night FCP 6.0 working well whit DV, this morning the issue start again. Another rare case , Quicktime pro have the same problem with DV, when New movie recording menu is activated, no video is present, quicktime recognize the DV device but no see the video signal.
