I'm glad I'm not the only one having trouble doing this. I eventually got an MD going by de-selecting all the options in the setup, reloading the dcerouter and then booting the MD. It worked, so I tried adding each required option one at a time and repeating the reload and re-boot each time, thinking I would troubleshoot the problem. I didn't find the problem and everything ended up working fine, so I'm none the wiser.
So far I've had no luck getting MythTV working, but reading the forums, I know I'm not alone there. The cards are recognised, but Pluto/Myth can't open them?
I still don't understand why Pluto requires so much setup of MDs? Kaboodle automatically recognises hardware MAC addresses, so why not Pluto?
When I first saw Pluto I thought it would be easy, given the literature, all 'PlugandPlay', but have discovered there's a lot more to it than plugging in a device and letting Pluto configure it.
I still think it's a great idea, but have spent too much time on it, and not really got anything but an MD that'll play mp3s over a network, after a five minute boot time!!!!
I'm looking forward to when it does what it says it does.
