Hey Greg, good to "see" you again.

I have been able to get the firewire issue resolved with Shaw. I emailed
them again explaining I was frustrated that the firewire port would be
disabled without any notification, and they contacted their engineering
team, which informed them that the firewire port should be working, it just
may be a broadcast flag issue.  Since none of my channels worked, and it was
disabled in the diagnostic menu, I suggusted that they reactivate my box.
Once they did that, firewire is working again.

Of course this is the day after I set up an HD-PVR, but at least I bought it
from a place where I can return it.
