    I have this model too...

    I too have the pvgs50, and I can connect to my mac via 4-6 pin firewire with no problems. (I import into iMovie). You basically just hook the camera up, turn it onto "VCR" mode, and use the software controls to import video.

    Perhaps I'm not understanding what you mean by "capture through 1394"... do you mean record off of the computer to the camcorder? If so, I haven't tried that.

    I have no experience with this model and XP.
