Comment(by Marc MERLIN):

 Are you all using the firewire chipset from your MB, maybe a VIA one?
 If so, that was the cause of my problems. I got a non VIA FW PCI card and
 things worked a lot better after that.

 Also, another reason for my problems was that my cable connection to the
 DCH-3200 wasn't that good and sometimes I was getting errors that were
 simply because it couldn't tune the channel. Once I changed the FW card
 and recrimped my cable to the STB, it's been working near perfectly since
 then (broadcast mode of course), all this with myth 0.21 with the
 mythprime script as shipped on ubuntu hardy (version .55b beta)
