trouble connecting canon hv 40

Hello, I am trying to create a news tv program for our elementary school. I have the full version of boinx tv and the new 2011 imac. I have the Canon hv 40 camera hooked up using a firewire 4 pin to 9 pin. When I add a video source inside Boinx tv it shows the canon camera source available, but when I press the button nothing shows up in the boinx tv program. It is just frozen from the main camera feed that was there before I switched it to the new canon source. I can get the canon hv 40 to work in imovies just not Boinx tv. Any advice would be greatly appreciated since we plan to shoot our first show this week.

Thanks,

Greg

I found the answer in your forum. I needed to change from HDV to DV. Thanks, Greg
