Yes, I plan on using firewire to change the channels no matter what.
Just contemplating if its worth recording over firewire anymore or
not.  In my setup I have 2 firewire boxes daisy chained, which has
worked reasonably well for recording.  I am a little concerned about
mixing between a channel changer (only) on one and using the other as
a recording device, I still need to mess around with all of this.
