I have heard that Shaw does indeed enable firewire on some of their
receivers - I haven't done much research on it yet though.  As for a
capture card, my understanding is that all you need is a firewire port on
your machine - if your motherboard doesn't have one, then firewire PCI
cards are cheap.

The only thing holding me back is that TSN "HD" isn't available in my
market from shaw (apparently) and CFL football is the only reason I want
HD :)
