Good point. I've been seeing mentions of Firewire recording on the 
MythTV mailing list, and how the reliability is improving.

I assume that the HD box needs to be rented at an additional charge. 
(I'm guessing the one they bundle is SD.) I wonder if Verizon has 
Firewire capable STBs as well.

Thanks for the note.
