I am getting more or less reliable capture via firewire for all
channels now, except the HD tier.  No matter what I do, what settings
I use, and how I test, it does not want to capture those channels.
And it is not a 5C thing, as I have confirmed with another mythtv user
on my cable system that he is not getting these issues.

Is there some sort of processor requirement that would explain why I
can capture the SD stuff via firewire but not the HD stuff?
