I have just installed mythbuntu (build sept 8, 07) to test the firewire
per your request. It works, as I am able to capture video. I did not
do extensive testing as I just installed this on a spare HD to see if it
worked, so I do not know about sound, but I definetly can watch TV over
it. I followed the firewire guide at
Mythbuntu doesn't seem to be affected by the firewire stack problem
other distros seem to be having.
Currently though, firewire is a PITA to setup. A few ideas are being
thrown around to fix that though. Any ideas on it would be appreciated.
