Default ADVC-100 to iMovie video capture does not work

Hi!

Actually I try to digitalize some old VHS tapes. But for any reason it does not work?!
I use:
Panasonic video recorder (works well).
composite cable(red, white, yellow) from panasonic to ADVC 100 (frontside).
Firewire 400 6pin (backside of ADVC) to MacMini (10.6.8).
When opening iMovie11 (version 9.0.4) it identifies the ADVC 100 as an externe camera. but I cannot see the video. when i try to import, there is only a blue screen, no prewiev etc. There is a red signal in iMovie which tells me that iMovie is recording, but it doesn't do anything.
the settings on ADVC i have tried are:
analog in. video format PAL (i am in Europe) and all the other pins (2-6) off.

Can anybody help me?
Thank you

If you haven't already, try searching here on MAC and similar terms. There are a number of MAC-related threads that might address your question. (I do not do MAC.)
