Just to wrap this up, today I was informed by someone at the customer
service center their managers have told them they didn't provide ANY
STB with active firewire ports and they had no intention to, saying
they believed they weren't required to until next year (I'm pretty
sure they were confusing the OTA digital mandate with the HD 1394
mandate). Since I didn't have a copy of the regs with me, and my
lunch break was already about 40 minutes long from standing in line, I
opted for just continuing to use my blaster with s-video out.
Time Warner is ingenious. They just make it so dang inconvenient to
argue with them, they suck your will right out of you before forcing
them to do something they don't want to.
