After plugging a DV cam in the 1st firewire port of the DV Now AV, can I plug another firewire device ( hard drive, scanner,...)in the 2st port, if not why ?

No, AV is not used a standard Firewire interface for your computer. Although the hardware is OHCI compliant (the generic Firewire standard) the software is not. FAST wrote proprietary drivers to overcome the limitations of generic OHCI drivers. You could use the card with OHCI drivers rather than the FAST drivers, but you would lose all the benefits of FAST.forward and the FAST DV codec.
So if you want to use other Firewire devices, you should get a OHCI card for additional Firewire ports.
