Firewire card ID discovery

Greetings, If this post is inappropriate for this category; I apologize. I wasn’t sure where to put it.
The main objective here is to capture high 8 content with Dvgrab into an editing program.It is suggested that I check for the any updates for my capture card first. I would like to discover my installed Firewire card name and version to check for any updates without disassembling my computer. There must be a terminal command line I could use. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Please keep in mind I’m not well versed in terminal and should be considered a newbie. The more specific the instructions, the better.
Thank you in advance for any help offered.

Maybe dmidecode, lspci or lshw? They all have man pages — i.e. manuals. :arrow_down:

man dmidecode
man lspci
man lshw

Note: I don’t think lshw comes installed by default, so you’ll probably need to install it first. :arrow_down:

pamac install lshw

… or, alternatively, … :arrow_down:

sudo pacman -S lshw
