> Hi,
> Our local telco company within the last couple years installed Fiber to

> I was thinking to switching to it then as when bundling with other
> services like telephone it's cheaper then cable.
> Unfortunately unlike the cable company they require the use of a set top
> box which I don't think will work with my PVR-500 as well.
> I called them up to see what information I could get on the set top boxes
> and they said the following:
> 1. The set top is Scientific Atlanta model 303, 403 or 630 depending on
> what you ordered.
> 2. You only need one set top box per every 3 tvs.
> 3. The boxes have USB but not Firewire.
> From looking online I can't find anything about those models and I don't
> see how #2 is possible and without Firewire it appears it won't be that easy
> to use with mythtv.
> I decided to post here and see if anyone knew anymore more this.
> If not I can ask on Tuesday when they show a demo of the service.

you should be able to use the pvr-500 and a IR blaster to change channels.
