To capture HD video from SONY Handycam by Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable use dvgrab utility!
dvgrab -rewind -showstatus -format hdv -timestamp -autosplit capture_
This will rewind to the beginning of the the tape and will save high definition video, which is split at scene borders to files named like capture_2014.07.14_10:30:35.m2t etc.
Tested with SONY Handycam HDR-HC9.
