My firewire connection stopped working two days ago and it seems to be
something in Myth causing the problem. I can capture using test-mpeg2 and
playback find using mplayer. If I try to view or record HD through Myth I
either get a completely blank screen or it is just a bunch of horizontal
lines with lots of black space in between. Here is what the frontend says
when I tried to view HD and saw a black screen:

Any ideas what is going on? I added a second SA3250HD cable box but that has
been working for about 2 weeks. I did open the mythtv-setup program but I
didn't make any changes. I just looked around related to changing channels
on both boxes. I just upgraded to the latest release hoping that might help
but I still have the same problem. Thanks for any help
