NAME
       dvcont - send control commands to DV cameras

SYNOPSIS
       dvcont <command1> [ <command2> ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       dvcont  is  a  command line tool to send control commands via an IEEE1394 link to a device
       that implements the AV/C specifications by the 1394 Trade Association.  Or  for	the  non-
       techies:  dvcont lets you remote control your DV camera via a Firewire cable.  The follow-
       ing commands are understood:

       dev <number>
	      Select device number on chain to use. (dvcont tries  to  automatically  detect  the
	      camera. Use the dev command BEFORE any other commands for manual control.)

       play   Tell the camera to play. If already playing, it toggles slow-motion.

       reverse
	      Tell the camera to play in reverse. If already playing, it toggles slow-motion.

       trickplay < -14 to +14 >
	      Tell  the  camera  to  play  at  various	speeds.  0 = forward play, -14	= fastest
	      reverse, -8 = 1X reverse, -1 = slowest reverse, 1 = slowest forward, 8  =  1X  for-
	      ward, 14 = fastest forward.  (Not supported by all cameras.)

       stop   Tell the camera to stop playing.
