I'm preparing an article explaining How to use the Firewire Port to change channels on your Cable or Satellite Box with SageTV. But before I complete the how-to, I'm looking for input from GeekTonic readers that use any HTPC solution (SageTV or others) who use Firewire.
Please answer in the comments section the following:
- Let me know if you are currently using firewire to change channels on your HTPC OR even to tune channels on your HTPC.
- Let me know if you've attempted to get a firewire-enabled cable or satellite box, but couldn't. I'm interested in stories about any difficulties of obtaining a firewire-enabled box.
If you're not sure what I'm talking about (that happens a lot here in the GeekTonic Home) I'll explain everything shortly.
