can't capture HDV into FCP

hey all, having an odd problem. I'm trying to capture Sony HVR-Z1 108050i footage into FCP 5.04. I'm running a Dual 1.8 GHz with 4 GB of RAM, OSX 10.4.6.

I created a project with the native HDV setting (rather than AIC). When I open up the Log & Capture window it shows 'VTR OK' and I can control my SONY HDV deck remotely from FCP. However when I play the tape no video shows up on the window. When I try and capture, again, it shows no video coming through.

Not sure what to do here, any thoughts?

Is the camera the ONLY thing connected to the Mac via FireWire (i.e. no other devices, hubs or hard drives?)
