the only way I know of a way to test the firewire connection for encryption
or filtering is to use the following commands.
and you can redirect that mplayer, if it plays then you have a "clear"
channel. if not, it's definitely encrypted.
then you have to use sudo firewire_tester with the -R option to reset the
firewire bus if you tried to capture a channel that was encrypted.
Unfortunately, you have to do this on every single channel that you want to
test, you first set the stb to that channel, then try to capture the stream,
then if mplayer plays it, then you move on. So on and so forth.
You're lucky you could get firewire channel changing to work. I can't even
get that working, I have a sa3250hd and no one has been able to help me. The
link is here if anyone is reading this and want's to try and help.....
