I would suggest trying the following.  Set the connection type to be 
broadcast in mythtv.  Then reboot both your box and dct-6200 to make sure 
the firewire stuff is all clean.  Dont issue do any plugctl commands when 
its back up.

run 'test-mpeg2 -r 2 > test.ts' over and over until you get output. once
you get output stop test-mpeg2 then attempt to watch livetv in myth. If
livetv works you should be all set. If not, you will need to repeat the
test-mpeg2 process until it does. It will usually take me a few (less then 
10) tries to get it in a working state.

This process should only be required if you reboot your box or dct-6200.  

basicly a cut/paste from 'Debugging Unreliable DCT-6200 Recording' thread 
on the -dev list from a few months back.
