I have comcast and the firewire commands do not work, but the firewire 
power on/off status does. I have been using a script to turn the box on 
or off with an IR blaster and use the firewire to check the power 
status. This has been pretty much 100% reliable for me.

You can find it here. Source code for the programs is also there.
