[mythtv-users] Firewire and the Motorola DCX-3200

Does the Motorola DCX-3200 cable box work with mythtv? I am on Comcast 
cable in San Jose.

My box has a firewire port, and a serial port (3.5mm jack).

Are there instructions anywhere on how to use the serial port? Can I 
change channels through it? What is the pinout for the serial port 3.5mm 
jack on the back?

Does the firewire port work on this box?

I tried to plug the box into my myth backend. When I tried to set it up 
as a video source, it shows up as a FireWire cable box, Description 
DCX-3200. However when I try to scan for channels, it just says "Failed 
to open the card"

The terminal output for mythtv-setup says:

SelectSetting::setValue(): invalid index: -1 size: 5

So any help?
