[mythtv] an update on SVN firewire recordings

I've finally finished my move and got my mythtv backend up and running
again. I've got two DCT6200 boxes daisy chained to one firewire port
on my motherboard.

A while back Daniel mentioned commenting a  line out to do a bus
reset, which I've done. The problem is I still see some recordings not
working after a bus reset. If I happen to be around and paying
attention I can run firewire_tester -B, sometimes a few times, to get
it to work, but the firewire recording code doesn't seem to have the
same ability?

I'm running 13354, so I don't know if this behavior has changed since
that build. I'm wondering if there is a way to run  something like
"firewire_tester -B -n %" for the box before each recording until it
greps "Fix: Success" until someone has the time to look into perhaps
including the firewire_tester fix/stabilize code into the backend?
