Andrew - have you found all the HD OTA channels to be in the clear
over firewire?  For me,  ABC, CBS, and either CW or the former UPN
station have some kind of copy protection, but all the other HD OTA
stations are clear.  I've just been using QAM because of that, but it
would be nice to have another HD input for Myth.
