[mythtv-users] Problem Using SA3250HD with Firewire Capture

I just received a Scientific Atlanta 3250HD with an
active Firewire port and can't get it to work with
MythTV 0.18 on Mandrake 10.0. I have Time Warner
Cable in Cincinnati. They didn't go out of their
way to get the box to me, but I was VERY persistant.
Took about six weeks of pestering.
The 1394 port on the 3250HD is active. I plugged it
into the firewire port on my HDTV and I get ALL the
digital channels, including HBO.
I built the latest release of libraw1384, libiec61883,
and the utilities for the 2.6 kernal. I can
load all the drivers.
I can plug a Firewire external drive into the 1394A
built into my motherboard and its recognized. I can
mount filesystems on the drive. When I do a
with the drive attached, I see information for node 0
and node 1.
Next, I removed the drive, rebooted the mythbackend
server and connected the 1394 port on the 3250 to
the 1394A port on my computers motherboard while
tailing /var/log/messages. Nothing. No messages at
all. I then do a plugreport and see only node 0.
Here are the 1394 related drives loaded:
[root at lbk libiec61883]# lsmod |grep 1394
dv1394 20076 0
video1394 17996 0
raw1394 29740 0
eth1394 21256 0
ohci1394 33348 2 dv1394,video1394
ieee1394 319704 5
When I load the drivers manually, I get the following
messages in /var/log/messages:
Jul 14 18:26:19 lbk kernel: devfs_mk_dev: could not
append to parent for raw1394Jul 14 18:26:19 lbk
kernel: ieee1394: raw1394: /dev/raw1394 device
Jul 14 18:26:52 lbk kernel: devfs_mk_dev: could not
append to parent for video1394/0
Jul 14 18:26:52 lbk kernel: video1394: Installed
Anyone have an idea on what else I can try?
