Make sure you have all your modules loaded:

mythbox:~# lsmod|grep 1394
dv1394                 20728  0
raw1394                25120  2
eth1394                19856  0
ohci1394               32716  1 dv1394
ieee1394              353144  4 dv1394,raw1394,eth1394,ohci1394

Run plugreport and show us the output. Here is an example of what it should
look like

Host Adapter 0
Node 1 GUID 0x000e5cfffed720aa
oMPR n_plugs=1, data_rate=2, bcast_channel=63
oPCR[0] online=1, bcast_connection=0, n_p2p_connections=0
      channel=63, data_rate=2, overhead_id=0, payload=376
iMPR n_plugs=0, data_rate=2

The big thing is we need to see the output of this command

test-mpeg2 -r 1 > test.mpg

You have to get test-mpeg2 working reliably before you expect it to
work in myth with no problems.
