Well, which software have you tried? I know of (open source):
- -bcast
- -cinerella
- -linuxvideostudio
- -kino

At least the last two are supposed ot be able to capture directly from
the DV, and do various funky things with the video.

Then there's also mainactor (commercial) which is supposed to be quite good.

All of this is available on my distro, or from http://plf.zarb.org

It might also help knowing what distro you run.
