I am wondering if anyone else has the Scientific Atlanta 8000HD dvr for use with Tima/Warner cable, or other uses. Last night, I went to purchase a HDTV DVHS vcr, and the only inputs any of them have are firewire. So I came home and checked out my box, and sure enough NO FIREWIRE OUTPUT. Then, I went online to Scientific Atlanta's website, looked up the 8000HD Box and in the diagram, sure enough, a firewire port, missing from my box. I then called Time/Warner and they say they don't have it on theirs. They told me I could get another box that's not a dvr that has a firewire enabled, but it's an additional 7.95 a month rent! This is too much for me, considering the model I have is supposed to have it there. I am wondering if anyone knows if a person can buy these boxes, or know of an alternate way to tape HD programming for my collection. HDnet has been showing some great classics, and I am really upset there's no way to have them for viewing after their showings. None of these vcr's have a component input or DVI, so also wondering if just using the cable-out regular jack would sewnd high def to this vcr's inputs (I am looking at the Mitsubighi model that's 399 at Ultimate Electronics). Thanks for your help.
