First off, that document doesn't seem to talk at all about must-carry
or in-the-clear rules.

I assume you're specifically talking about section 4 at the bottom of
page 623, right?  The Motorola 6100 I got from the cable company does
follow all those.

The firewire port is functional.  I currently use it so mythbackend
can change the channel.  But I can only get mpeg video out of it for a
small handful for channels because of the 5C settings; pretty much
only what's in the most basic cable package and a few more seemingly
chosen at random by the cable operator.  None of the HD channels,
local or cable-only, are in this set.
