Firewire random recording

Description

Firewire does not record reliable on many boxes I have tested. In Washington State with Comcast and with Cableone in New Mexico this has been reproduceable for me everytime. DCT6200, DCT3120? I think that was the model, DCT6416.

When recording I get random recording. Sometimes it will record sometimes it will not. I cannot get bcast to work I can get p2p to work however. In order to get p2p to work I must do the following,

plugctl -n 1 oPCR[0].n_p2p_connections=1
test-mpeg2 -r 1 > /root/foo.mpg
check see if file has any data if not
plugctl -n 1 oPCR[0].n_p2p_connections=0
plugctl -n 1 oPCR[0].n_p2p_connections=1
test-mpeg2 -r 1 > /root/foo.mpg

rinse/repeat till it shows data in the file once I do I leave p2p set to =1 and I can record flawlessly all the time. However if I do not do this it will have a random chance to record.

The following script is attached of what I wrote that allowed me to let it work till .20 and I am able to use it again now. This will give a idea of what is going on as well.

Mark this ticket as innaccurate, dead, wastebin. Its useless and uneeded the problem spurred from libiec61883 version 1.0.0 causing issues. I am now using version 1.1.0 and its working great.
