Could I get a little clarification? We're recording without issue
here on multiple 1394 drives but we're not doing HD.
1) How is the 1394 drive mounted? (fstab, etc.)
2) I presume that the HD box is sending you video over 1394, correct?
I also assume that the drive is on the same cable/OHCI adapter?
3) I presume that the 61883 stuff is loaded to allow you to
communicate with the HD box, correct? It's certainly not needed to
talk to the drive.
4) Any warnings in dmesg from the 1394 stack that we should know about?
5) Last, and most important, can you copy files at the terminal level
between your internal hard drive and the 1394 drive?
