Cool.  This is great news.  I remember during the freeview when they 
were launching the new channels, some of the chennels did not come over 
firewire.  And like you, I also had quite the scare at christmas.  I 
thought I had done something because my box just so happened to have 
locked up at that time and firewire was broken.  Once I found out it was 
Shaw and not me, I thought I'd wait until after the holidays to chase it 
since I wasn't going to be around.  I got back home to a pleasant 
surprise when I saw it was working again.
