I seem to be getting some firmware errors on my HVR-1800.  From syslog:

Jul 22 20:19:36 myth-mbe kernel: Firmware and/or mailbox pointer not 
initialized or corrupted, signature = 0xffffffff, cmd = SET_OUTPUT_PORT

initialized or corrupted, signature = 0xffffffff, cmd = PING_FW

The errors show up if I try to use the card in MythTV, or do a cat 
/dev/video1.  The capture file has no picture, but there is a bit of 
sound, but lots of static.

I just downloaded the latest dvb tree, so that's up to date.  My kernel 
is 2.6.25.9-76.fc9.x86_64.  I also refreshed the firmware from 
http://steventoth.net/linux/hvr1800 to be sure the files weren't corrupt.
