Even then some channels are not usable because mythfrontend may get confused when trying to playback the non-compliant transport stream. I originally tried broadcast, but kept getting errors. Eventually, the box will go away and I will get a black screen with a blue box that says “Not Authorized”. Card tuners in the US, most users will likely want to choose that route instead of Firewire for direct capture. The status query works, so at least you can check to see if it needs a power command. Post your comments, ask questions or get advice about any way of hacking digital cable?

After trying a variety of firewire chipsets, the ones that work the best are the latest Agere chips FW v61 with no priming More Details Here As for tuning, some SD channels simply will not work, for example all the Galaxy music only channels between and up we use our low def tuners via svideo for those.

Firewire Cable Box Compatibility

The channel info screen will always pop up on the DCHs after a channel change. Eventually, the box will go away and I will get a black screen with a blue box that says “Not Authorized”. Without priming it would get mostly failures when recording. During card setup selected Generic firewire since dch300.
This only happens when the command is ran to change to the same channel that it is already on. This caused the firswire box show up on a different node 0 instead of 1but otherwise did not change things. Connecting via point- to- point was flaky and not as reliable as broadcast.
Post your questions in the Xfinity Community. This should be set to “No Auto-tune”.
Partners Support Community Ubuntu. Recording and LiveTV viewing. Card tuners in the US, most users will likely want to choose that route instead of Firewire for direct capture. Could there be some sort of configuration problem?
This is NOT a null modem cable. Find all posts by simonen. Test it quickly by running channel. Able to get major networks in standard and HD. Help pay the bills, and keep the project alive!
After a week of viewing, LAM lock on premium channels seems to be hit or miss. I get the video but can’t change the channels. I didn’t have to do any of this before, and have never had to dch2300 an external change change command. I called Comcast, and got an appointment with a technician.
Problem channel changing with firewire
I feel you on the Olympics – got this working just in time! This tells it to only send the digits and not the “ok” keypress. I installed it following directions for a non-mce system. Even then, they would crop off part of the picture.
External Channel Changer
Now only digital channels. A null modem cable swaps several pins making it useless for this purpose.

I don’t have any premium channels, but all others tested work.
