Well, I'm glad you have made progress with Cox.  @#$%^&! Time Warner Cable
out here in Los Angeles cut off Firewire back in January.  It seems that
they're using the same coders.  :-(

Anyway, I have two tuner cards in my Myth box but would love to have
Firewire back - even if all I get is the same unencrypted channels I get
on the raw cable (which is what I got before).  It'd be nice to get all
the HD channels I pay for, though.  Were you getting those with Cox before
they cut you off?
