I would suggest trying the following. Set the connection type to be
broadcast in mythtv. Then reboot both your box and dct-6200 to make sure
the firewire stuff is all clean. Dont issue do any plugctl commands when
its back up.
run 'test-mpeg2 -r 2 > test.ts' over and over until you get output. once
you get output stop test-mpeg2 then attempt to watch livetv in myth. If
livetv works you should be all set. If not, you will need to repeat the
test-mpeg2 process until it does. It will usually take me a few (less then
10) tries to get it in a working state.
This process should only be required if you reboot your box or dct-6200.
basicly a cut/paste from 'Debugging Unreliable DCT-6200 Recording' thread
on the -dev list from a few months back.
