[mythtv-users] FC12 firewire i686 vs x86-64?

I'm looking at upgrading my myth box from FC9 / Myth 0.21. One of my main
requirements is that I get firewire to work for recording off a cable box.
I've pulled down some livecd images of FC12 to test out the firewire
recording capabilities. I found a rather odd problem.
If I use the i686 livecd, I successfully get firewire recordings. If I use
the x86-64 livecd, I get a zero-length file (I tried multiple times to get a
recording). I'm using a p2p connection, and the following commands:
plugctl -n 1 oPCR.n_p2p_connections=1
test-mpeg2 -r 1 > test.mpg
As much as I'd like to switch to x86-64, I'm going to stick with i686 if I
can't make firewire happy. Unfortunately, I can't seem to activate
broadcast mode on x86-64 to test that. Has anyone else encountered a
problem like this? Ideas?
