I apologize in advance if I ask any stupid questions. I've searched high and low for answer to this one without any luck, so I'm finally posting.

I can't get mythprime to work (haven't even begun to setup firewire as a capture source). I'm running mythbuntu 8.10 with an SA4250HDC stb (comcast).

plugreport shows:


Host Adapter 0

Node 0 GUID 0x001e8c0001854ad7

iMPR n_plugs=0, data_rate=2

When I run mythprime (ver. 0.69h) it is able to detect and power on my stb and change channels (using either firewire port), but fails testing p2p connection:

Priming Errors encountered: 0 stbs primed, 1 stbs failed to prime, 0 non-stbs ignored and 1 empty nodes skipped on 1 ports in 3 runs.

The failure is very quick as well. What else should I be trying? If the firewire ports on my stb were disabled would mythprime be able to power on the box and change channels?

Are you sure the STB is tuned to a known-clear channel? Mythprime won't be able to establish a connection unless there is data to receive. Try one of the HD network TV stations like NBC (for example).

Also, try one of the "manual" methods for establishing a p2p conection with the STB. I have an SA3250HD also with a very stable firewire connection and I never could get mythprime to work for me.

Yeah, I am running mythprime -v -c 5 -f 4 and mythprime is successfully changing the channel on the stb to channel 5, which is Standard Def unencrypted. Does it have to be High Def? I am planning on recording High def, of course.

I tried configuring firewire as a capture source in myth-backend and linking it with schedulesdirect, but trying to open live tv from mythfrontend kicks me back out to the menu.

Is it possible for the firewire port on my stb to be disabled and still be able to change channels with mythprime?

I just tried an unencrypted HD channel and mythprime and firewire_tester both work on p2p tests. So, that must have been. I knew there had to be some simple answer. Thanks theophile!
