[mythtv-users] Gentoo upgrade to .19-r1 breaks FireWire input

I know that firewire is working in the kernel and I
can manually record a channel using test-mpeg2 utility
from the libiec61883 package:
test-mpeg2 -r 2 oylmpics.ts

This results in a valid mpeg and plays back in
mplayer, vlc.

Now when I try to emerge mythtv with IEEE1394 use
flag, etc, the ebuild shows '--enable-firewire', but
under Basic Settings Input it
says 'Firwire Support No'.

When starting mythbackend it logs that No FireWire
support built-in, Please re-compile with Firewire
I am curious if anyone else has success with .19
recording off the Motorola 6208 STB, and if you are
using Gentoo?


mythtv ~ # emerge -pv mythtv

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
