FW buses work better with single devices connected to them.
G5 FW never worked up to good specs….and unfortunately all plugs share the same bus. The most optimized way to use several FW devices at their best is to use separate plugs on separate buses, meaning that installing additional FW ports on PCI cards is the way to go.
