#3016: Firewire random recording
 Reporter:  SlicerDicer  |       Owner:  ijr    
     Type:  defect       |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  minor        |   Milestone:  unknown
Component:  mythtv       |     Version:  head

 Firewire does not record reliable on many boxes I have tested. In
 Washington State with Comcast and with Cableone in New Mexico this has
 been reproduceable for me everytime. DCT6200, DCT3120? I think that was
 the model, DCT6416.

 When recording I get random recording. Sometimes it will record sometimes
 it will not.  I cannot get bcast to work I can get p2p to work however. In
 order to get p2p to work I must do the following,

 plugctl -n 1 oPCR[0].n_p2p_connections=1[[BR]]
 test-mpeg2 -r 1 > /root/foo.mpg[[BR]]
 check see if file has any data if not [[BR]]
 plugctl -n 1 oPCR[0].n_p2p_connections=0[[BR]]
 plugctl -n 1 oPCR[0].n_p2p_connections=1[[BR]]
 test-mpeg2 -r 1 > /root/foo.mpg[[BR]]

 rinse/repeat till it shows data in the file once I do I leave p2p set to
 =1 and I can record flawlessly all the time. However if I do not do this
 it will have a random chance to record.

 The following script is attached of what I wrote that allowed me to let it
 work till .20 and I am able to use it again now. This will give a idea of
 what is going on as well.
