I can at least tell you there is some hope.  I have a SA4250HD from
CableVision, and plugged in one of the firewire ports just for kicks
tonight after seeing your message.  I was able to tune several
channels, including SyFy and Spike which are not part of the analog

It wasn't 100% stable in that audio dropped out at one point (I think
SyFy) , and after I unplugged and replugged it a reboot was required.
Anyway, since I still have this box connected to my Tivo I didn't
pursue it much further; but figured you should know that it is at
least not without hope.
