NOTE: this is to release capacitated electronic charge on IEEE1394 board (according to a rumor:-P). So it is not enough to just turn off power-switch (since power is still provided to IEEE1394 board) nor restart PC by reboot command. Due to the same reason, it's often effective to physically remove and insert IEEE1394 board
dvsend# dvsend6 -f 4 -s 17 receiverNOTE: full-rate DV stream is too huge, so 1/4 of full-rate (-f 4) with maximum payload (-s 17) seems appropriate.
dvrecv# dvrecv6 -s sender
Monitor packets arriving at port 1394.
tcpdump -ni fxp0 ip6 and port 1394
Find the following lines in the output of "dmesg".
Sometimes number of ports is not 3 or its identifier is not S200. In that case please remove the IEEE1394 Board physically and insert it again.
mem 0xdd800000-0xdd80ffff,0xde000000-0xde00ffff,0xde800000-0xde800fff irq 10 at device 11.0 on pci0 pcilynx0: PCI bus latency was changing to 200. pcilynx0:ram0: 0xde000000 - 0xde00ffff pcilynx0: Link S200, 3 ports. pcilynx: node 0x00000000 pcilynx0: autoboot ROM is disable.
Connect DV camera and DV Deck to the same PC's IEEE1394 board. If both of them and that IEEE1394 board are working, then DV camera's image is output to DV deck's video output.
If it does not work well, check the following things.
