Stm32F4 dma -> usart int is never called no output on usart

Good Morning,
  I'm migrating my code from a stm32f10x based discovery board, to the stm32f407 based discovery board. Everything was going reasonably well until I tried to transmit on usart2 using dma. I have code that transmits dma then in the interrupt for tc it calls that function again to progress the state machine sending the next portion of dma data. 

 I never hit the breakpoint in the DMA1_Stream0_IRQHandler, and the data I receive is none. I have tested just sending data to the port using senddata that works fine. 

 Is there some restriction to which dma stream i can use on the usart ? Is there a certain order to which i have to call the functions ?
