can?t grab video from 2 identical DV Cams

Hi!

I did discover a strange problem.

I was always able to grab video from 2 firewire cams at the same time.
Now I try to do the same, but the first time with two identical DV Cams (Panasonic DVX 100).
But I can grab only from one cam, the other is not recognized.

I also tried all newer versions of jitter, even 1.6. Does not work with the two DVX 100.

so can somebody help me?

cheers flo

If you’re working on MacOS X, due to an Apple limitation, it’s not
possible to grab video from 2 DV Cameras. However, it’s possible to
use 2 webcams or 1 webcam + 1 DV…
