One thing that can cause LiveTV to not work is if your starting channel
is set to one that isn't actually available. On Firewire, you are only
going to be able to get the local broadcast network channels, so make
sure your starting channel is set to one of those.

This also applies if you test with regular recordings, as someone else
suggested to try in this thread. Make sure your first test recordings
are from a channel that's actually likely to be available over Firewire.
