Unfortunately, this doesn't surprise me - I don't have access to any modern OSX systems, and I don't believe the OSX capture code has been maintained since around 2008 or so. Since then apple has greatly changed how a lot of things work, so it's unlikely to be usable with a recent OSX system.

I'm hoping once the new capture system is written in the development code, someone will make a modern OSX capture driver - in the meantime, your best bet is to either dual boot something like pentoo, or you can try a USB device inside a linux VM - USB passthrough can be a bit sketchy though, I don't know how the OSX virtualization stuff handles it.
