Hit and miss I am afraid to say.

I have a OHCI card (Canopus ADVC1394) and although BeOS recognises it 
as a DV device it doesn't work for capturing from analog sources (it 
has 2 inputs, DV and analog).

I have no DV source to try the DV input out but I suspect that will 

The BeOS media kit supports DV for decoding but the AVI extractor does 
not support files over 1Gb in size (so any capture of reasonable size 
cannot be viewed).

I tried writing an extractor to replace the BeOS one but there were 
issues with how the DV decoder talked to the AVI extractor
