I have fiber to the house too but it is provided by a local company not
verizon. They use Amino set top boxes for IPTV. There is no firewire
output but there is a USB port which could potentialy be used to output the
digital signal. They dont offer HD yet. I am hoping when they do offer HD
the boxes will have firewire.
