would it be possible to get this option to remain "off" if more than
one STB connected via firewire is present? I found that manually
enabling this previously did not solve the problem for me and caused
problems if my second STB was recording. This is what prompted me to
write the channel change script I have in my wiki user page and I've
found this script has fixed the 0bit recording issue for myself and a
few others without the need for a bus reset. Enabling this "feature"
would just cause a big headache for those with more than one STB and
on top of that won't necessarily fix the issue.
