The other end of the cable will depend on what connector if any your Mac has. Nah, that’s a bunch of crap. One option would be to update the firmware yourself via posted hacks on user forums, but this will potentially expose you to more trouble unless the hack came from specifically a Comcast user with the exact same STB model.

I fjrewire hope that the firewire code will recieve an overhaul soon to be compatible out of the box with the new kernels, and I hope that that will solve the firewire shuffling problem. That’s probably what I am going to do, knowing that I will only be able to copy from an SD source.
