another way to do it is a great little program called MPEG Streamclip. You can have it demux the stream or convert the MPEG2 to high quality Quicktime Movie file (or whatever file you prefer). I use it on a daily basis to convert files to edit in Final Cut and it has saved several projects. It's also free-ware like ffmpegX.

Sounds alot like what another friend suggested:

I have used a tool called FFMpeg to demux mpeg-2 files (recorded using an ATI card) so they could be imported into DVD studio (as separate video and audio tracks).
Works great, although mpeg-2 is not really a very good format for editing, more of a 'final destination'

You have to "demux" the file first, i.e., de-multiplex it, using a tool such as ffmpegX. On the last panel of this program there is a little demux button which you can use to separate the audio and video streams. Then you should be able to import them into FCP.
