I've no experience with the firewire recorder but from what I can see
from the code, it looks like you should be able to alter the recording
profile(s) for your card in mythtv-setup. Changing the 'Recording type'
to 'Normal' to 'TV Only' should cause all non-video, audio or subtitle
packets to be discarded.
