First, I'm trying to see if I have the dreaded VT6306 or not, which
according to 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/FireWire/5C/5C
is a bad chip.

lspci says
02:0b.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): VIA Technologies, Inc. IEEE 1394 Host Controller (rev 80)
but not what kind of via that is :-/

So, I see the STB, mythtv is even abel to change the channel to 2, but I
can't get any video from it.

myth:~# firewire_tester -B -n 1

Broadcast Fix: Success (already stable)

I have the ubuntu package with /usr/bin/mythprime being run when
mythtv-backend starts. That part works, and myth does set the STB to channel 2
as configured.

After that, if I try to watch livetv from it:
