[mythtv-users] Firewire Issues

I confess, I am suffering from a lack of understanding of how to proceed
on my firewire issues. Positively, all of the analog channels...the
basic cable stuff...seems to come through on my SA3250HD. The HD
channels seem to come through. The digital versions of the analog feed
aren't tuning...but I figure if I can get rid of the PVR-150 hooked into
the box output, it will allow me to free up a PCI slot for another QAM
That said, my firewire recording, like many peoples, is inconsistent.
When it records, it records. When it doesn't, it doesn't, and I have to
stop MythTV, reset the firewire bus, and that seems to clear the problem.
I have high hopes a future bugfix will stabilize the connection...it
certainly works better than it used to for me. But until then...what
should I do? I've been reading other people's issues...What are the
advantages of using an external channel changer script to reset the
firewire bus before each recording as a precaution? I've already given
it the lowest priority compared to the digital tuners, which work
flawlessly(except for LiveTV, which I try to avoid anyway)
I have searched through the archives and seem no closer to a best
solution, so I decided to seek commentary.
