MPLS pseudowire Up on one side Down on the other

Hello,
I'm trying to setup another pseudowire between a 6509-E 12.2(17r)S4 and a 7201 12.4(12.2r)T. The 6509 says the vc is up:
Switch#show mpls l2transport vc
Local intf     Local circuit              Dest address    VC ID      Status
Gi4/1           Ethernet                   172.29.255.7    77         UP
But on the 7201 I'm getting:
Router#show mpls l2transport vc
Local intf     Local circuit              Dest address    VC ID      Status
Gi0/3          Ethernet                   172.29.255.10   77         DOWN
When I run show mpls l2transport vc detail it looks like:
Switch:
VC statistics:
    transit packet totals: receive 0, send 35308
    transit byte totals:   receive 0, send 2745983
    transit packet drops:  receive 0, send 0
Router:
VC statistics:
    packet totals: receive 35414, send 0
    byte totals:   receive 2754295, send 0
    packet drops:  receive 0, seq error 0, send 1421389
Weird that the switch is sending but not receiving and the router is receiving but not sending.
The topoligy is:
[6509-E] <-> [7201transit] <-> [7201]
The transit router has mpls ip enabled and has another functional pseudowire running across it.
Thanks in advance I'm pretty new to MPLS, please let me know if you need more information, I can post configs etc.

Hey Negandra,
Thank you for your response! How do I know if I have SIP/ES/ES+ cards?  The two types of cards I have in the chassis are:
48  SFM-capable 48 port 10/100/1000mb RJ45 WS-X6548-GE-TX
24  CEF720 24 port 1000mb SFP
Are either of those capable?

*EDIT*
Also I have tried to terminate the pseudowire to a SVI on the 6509-E but I can't get it to come online.
CORE#show mpls l2transport vc
Local intf     Local circuit              Dest address    VC ID      Status
Gi4/3          Ethernet                   172.x.x.x    2          ADMIN DOWN
Gi3/46         Ethernet                   172.x.x.x    123        UP
Gi4/48         Ethernet                   172.x.x.x    1337       DOWN
Gi4/5          Ethernet                   172.x.x.x    4          ADMIN DOWN
Vl7            Eth VLAN 7                 172.x.x.x    7          DOWN
CORE#show run int vlan7
Building configuration...
Current configuration : 91 bytes
interface Vlan7
no ip address
xconnect 172.29.255.7 7 encapsulation mpls
end
If I configure the pseudowire on a physical interface on the switch it comes up, what am I missing? Hardware limitation?
Thanks in advance,

Can anybody confirm if you can establish an Xconnect between two 20Gb port-channels (2x 10Gig bundle).  The core is 40Gig and running MPLS.  We have many gigabit pseudowires running over it already. Our intention is to terminate 10Gig server traffic
