I have rogers and am using Firewire to get HD into my myth box.  Works
great the only issue I seem to have are channels that are in my package
that don't actually stream over firewire, like a local TV station.  I'm
in Ottawa but the set top boxes are the same here as in TO.  

This device looks promising - http://www.hauppauge.com/site/products/data_hdpvr.html but last I checked it doesn't do AC3.
