I am still annoyed at ATI for not implementing sync-on-green in their
video chips.

Reading DV from the onboard firewire via fwcontrol -R seems to work
okay, but sending DV to the onboard firewire via fwcontrol -S results
in dropouts.  Very repeatable.  

Sending DV to a NEC uPD72871/2 (PCI card) either works fine or not at all.

So there is something not quite right in firewire land, but at this point I
can't blame it on the Tyan's onboard controller.

Ordered some cat6 patch cables earlier today, so I'll be able to try out
the onboard Ethernets.  (RJ45s and BNCs don't play well together.)
