The first step is to understand the root causes of the problems you
are experiencing.

Do you know why the current bumblebee node does not work for you? What
does it do (or not do)?

The reason why camera1394 does not handle the BumbleBee is simple: it
was not designed to do that. It could probably be modified to work
with it, if necessary. Perhaps we could combine both nodes in some
future release. But, I don't have access to a BumbleBee, so testing
would be difficult.
