I did read it, its just you asking someone to make a patch to reset the
firewire bus before each recording.
I would like to know how you have your firewire configured in mythtv and
plugctl info. I was unable to find an email with you giving the
What you discribe can occur if you have mythtv setup to use a p2p firewire
connection when your dct62xx wants a broadcast connection. From what I
seen usually dct62xx that come up as node 1 on an empty bus work best with
p2p and node 2 with broadcast.
