Non-HD channels still work (and as a bonus, SciFi now works over FireWire, so I
can record Battlestar Galactica from it instead of the crappy tuners in my
PVR-500). If I pipe the stream from test-mpeg2 into mplayer, on the odd
occasions that it'll start playing video, it's all broken up. If the port had
been disabled, I would think nothing would work.
