I wonder if thats the same "comply" law that Time warner completely
ignores..... at least in my area of upstate NY.  Ive repeatedly asked
for an hd box that has a firewire port enabled..... they keep telling me
"that functionality is not available"  I never heard a word back from
the FCC after I complained to them either.
