Just curious, does anyone happen to know what cable box Time Warner Cable 
provides that has 1394 on it?

I called them up last night to upgrade to digital cable to try this out 
(heck, there's only a one month commit, so the extra $10-$15 isn't gonna 
kill me *grin*), and the salesguy checked and said all their HD boxes had 
FireWire outputs. However, the box I picked up from their store 
(Scientific Atlanta 3100) doesn't, and the lady said they'd have to 
schedule a tech out to get a firewire-capable box. So, just wondering if 
there's a specific box I should ask for.

I can just see the tech going "so *why* do you want this hooked up to a 
computer?"  :)
