Is support for that working in 0.21?  I see the firewire page on the
MythTV wiki says:

Note: As of December, 2008, both libraw1394 and MythTV have been
updated to work properly with the new Juju firewire stack.

but it doesn't specify which versions.

I just tried upgrading my kernel to 2.6.29 with the new stack (and
libraw1394 2.0.2) and I can't seem to get MythTV 0.21 to recognize
that my STB exists.  After returning to with the old stack
it's back.

I could see the box with plugreport with both kernels.
