Hi, thanks for the reply-
I can config mythtv to use firewire as an input, config the node and port- it just seems like there isn't anything coming over the wire.
plugreport 'sees' a device on node 0 using broadcast channel=63
I've set the TV tuner to a digital station and config'd it to use 'passthrough'
from command line I execute:
test-mpeg2 > test.tl
without error. however the file produced is 0k.
This is the process used for getting the firewire digital mpeg2 data from an STB into myth. I just can't prove that the TV is sending anything
out via the firewire. pressing the i.link button on the remote gives 'no i.link model available'.
has anyone gotten a linux box to talk to this TV? Or vice versa? Any tips are appreciated.
