Hey folks,
A bit of a noob here. I'm having some problems with my attempts to connect via firewire to a Comcast Motorola 6200 STB with Mythbuntu 9.10. When I started to try to set it up, I got no GUID listed, so I went to the forums to find ways to troubleshoot.

I checked with plugreport and got no response at all.
Next I tried sudo modprobe raw1394 and got this back

After that, though, I tried plugreport and got

Host Adapter 0
==============
There are two ports on my STB and two on my system. I have tried all combinations of both, with no change in plugreport. I have a SYBA 1394 card (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815124034) which should work; comments at Newegg suggest it woks fine with linux. I have checked the diagnostics on the box and they show the Firewire port as on and the channel I am tuned to has no 5C protection.

Also, just in case it matters, I enabled the weekly autobuilds for 0.22 and then upgraded the nvidia drivers to 195 using javenyard's repositories and upgraded and patched ALSA per http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW-TO_set_up_HDMI_audio_on_nVidia_GeForce_G210,_GT220 ,_or_GT240&redirect=no. All of that was to get my GT220 working to pass the audio via HDMI, which it is doing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ha, well forget the question, it was a hardware problem. Picked up a new PCI Firewire card and it worked just fine. VIA chipset screws me again. I am really starting to hate those guys.
