1) powered down Myth
2) unplugged cablebox power and firewire cable
3) turned Myth box back on
4) plugged cablebox power and firewire in to computer
waited for system to finish booting
5) run test-mpeg2 -r 2
	output received on first attempt
6) run live TV
 	worked on first attempt.

my plugreport:
Host Adapter 0

I'm getting A LOT of mpeg pixelation on the HD channels, which I wasn't 
getting last night that is not showing on the Component output. 

I have already had 1 channel mischange.

I'll let you know when I encounter when the box stops streaming to the pc.
