it's good that the FCC guy did manage to interpret the regs correctly. i hope you got his name and
contact info in case you need it in the future?
i'm really surprised you are having such difficulty with comcast. they are generally one of the
better cable providers when it comes to firewire and following the regs. by any chance did
comcast recently take over your cable co? that would explain their stalling/misinformation.
I still have the 4250 sitting in my office waiting for me to get off my butt and hook it up. I have looked around (albeit not very heavily) for the firewire channel changing stuff for mythtv. Would someone be able to point me in the right direction to get this thing going?
Also on a side note. I finally got in my second PVR-500 the other day. Newegg was out as was a few of my other primary picks. Ended up ordering off ebay and luckily got a new in box still shrink wrapped product. I need to find a time when I am home and the mythtv box isn't recording anything to install it. This is what will be taking the input from the SA4250 hopefully.
And majoridiot: I have yet to have plugged the mvp into the network to test the stuff we spoke about before. I hope to do that soon too. Too much to do and not enough time. lol
Yes, I planned on using the firewire to change the channels since I have that already on the myth box and I won't have to spend more on the IR option. Although I may have to opt to do that route anyways since I am not sure how much longer I will have Comcrap. I can get a better deal by switching to dish, I just don't agree with the 24 month contract. But that is neither here nor there.
The reason I don't want to mess with the video coming through the firewire is having to mess with the encryption. If I just output the composite to the pvr-500 then I won't have to mess with that.
