New Unraid Hardware - Firewire Tuning Issue

Hi, folks.

I have been running SageTV on an unRAID Docker for several months, and everything has been working great (since C5Davey helped me get FireWire Tuner working). However, I recently moved my unRAID setup to new hardware, and while everything works great from almost every angle, I am seeing unpredictable FireWire tuning, now. About 50% of the time, the channel change works properly, but the remaining time, I see odd behavior. Sometimes a two-digit channel change will be split (59 becomes channel 5, then channel 9). Other times, there is duplication of two numbers (58 becomes 5 then 88).

One major difference that I noted in Linux FireWire tuning vs. Windows, was how much more quickly the channel change happened, and that was on very old hardware. I'm wondering if maybe the added performance of the new hardware is causing tuning to happen too quickly now, as it seems to be instantaneous. I have tried playing with the settings in Video Sources-->HD-PVR-->Tuner Control-->Remote Control Options, and these don't seem to make a difference.

Last thing that it seems could be a potential cause is that I had to put a different FireWire card into the new server, as my old card is PCI, and the new motherboard only supports PCI-E. The new one is from QNine.

Hoping someone might have seen something like this, and found a resolution. It might just be a matter of finding a way to slow down the channel changes, but I haven't found a way to do that yet. I'll keep searching, but any input would be welcomed.
