Howdy Srinivas,

But mythtv isn't connected directly to the stb, correct?  There is a
PVR150 between the two.  The coax output of the FioS box is likely
always one channel (3?) and they intend on you changing channels on
the FioS stb.

There was a discussion just a few days ago about FioS.  With at least
some FioS boxes, seems people are successful not only channel
changing, but also retrieving video directly from it via firewire.
