I've tried on Panther and Tiger to make it work consistently and I keep having problems.
At the moment I personally would recommend HDVxDV because it is simple, it maintains audio sync, and attempts to capture 24P timecode (with mixed results.) You can also download a free trial before deciding to buy.
It is wishful thinking to hope that Apple will release an update to FCP5 at Macworld. I think Macworld this year is going to be all about Intel based Powebooks, iBooks and Mac Minis. We may have to wait until NAB in April for full FCP5 support of 720P24.
Hey Tim I went over your instructions using HDVxdv, it worked good, bbut the only issue is way out of sync, am I doing something wrong here?
