    Firewire questions

    I happen to be using comcast as my cable provider (the suck, I know). I have been reading over the net that with mythtv there is a way to control the cable box channel changing via firewire. My question is are there any recommended firewire cards that I should use seeing that the PC im useing does not have firewire. In order to make everything below here is the equipment that I will be useing on my mythtv. Could anyone point me in a correct direction regarding the firewire or let me know that I am hosed because im using comcast.

    IBM S50

    StreamZap remote

    Cable box
    DCT6200 (with firewire)

    I know the firewire port on a friend's SB audigy worked for this, if you happened to be using one anyway. Also, I had to compile the 6200ch program to get it to work on his 6412, as the binary provided on the wiki didn't work. I don't know enough to make an open-ended firewire card recommendation though.
