I'm working on getting a SA3250HD from TWC working with a HD-PVR. I've 
been using the sa3250ch channel changer. My problem is that most of the 
channels I want are >1000 and sa3250ch doesn't handle 4 digit channels. 
Does any one know of a firewire channel changer for the SA3250HD that 
handles 4-digit channels. I've tried getting in and tinkering with the 
source, but I haven't had much success.
