Yes.  Grab yourself a firewire cable and follow the Howto at jarod's
site.  You'll quickly find out whether or not its active.  If its not
active, call your cable company and they will activate it for you. 
After fighting to get myself a box with firewire ports, i was about to
complain about them not being activated.  I used gscanbus to force a bus
reset and suddenly they worked.  My cable company told me however that
they won't have all channels over firewire for some time (3 months or
so).  As of right now, I only get maybe 20 or 30 channels via firewire.
