Question about Canon VIXIA HV30 DV Camcorder
Have it connected with a 4 pin to 9 pin firewire cable
Try a different cable, the one you're using may have got damaged.
Check the firewire driver is installed and running on the Mac.
If the camera came with software, try re-installing it.

Just want to make sure you are talking about a four-pin firewire cable (small and flat) as opposed to a 4-pin s-video cable (round).
If you are talking about the latter, there is no control signal in an s-video cable so there is no "recognition" possible. Make sure that you have your DVD recorder set to S-video in and then hit play on the camcorder. You will need audio cables too if you want sound transferred. You should see video after you have manually pressed "play" on the camcorder.

SOURCE: Firewire and playback on TV
I don't know it this will solve your problem but I'm using a 3 pole male plug and getting picture on the TV (but not great picture - see above).

I had this problem when first plugging in my Canon zr80 to my Mac. What I did first was (if you have it) open up the program Imovie in you're applications menu. Then plug the firewire cable into both the camera and computer. Turn the camcorder on and set it to play(VCR). Once this happens you should see a "DV in" on the camcorders screen, followed by a blue window on you're computer. The rest should be easy.
