Up to about two weeks ago, I was able to receive every channel over
firewire including HBO (std and hd). Since Comcast made a change, I can
now only receive the local HD channels. Nothing else works at all, not
even the local broadcast channels. Firewire was a great solution while
it lasted. I am not sure if it is something I would plan a MythTv
system around. Different areas probably have different results. I
assume they're working on locking it down everywhere though.
