[mythtv-users] Comcast being coy?

I don't yet have a frontend capable of processing HDTV, but I decided to go
ahead and call Comcast and get an HDTV/Firewire box. I figure I can get the
Firewire transport working before I shell out for a new computer.
Anyhow, when I asked for a box with a firewire port on it, the rep said, "A
what?" and then put me on hold while she went to find an HDTV specialist. I
was then told that, "at this time, the only connections supported are DVI
I said, "Fine, just bring it anyway."
I'm hoping they just didn't know what they were talking about or just
repeating the company line. I also hope they won't hassle me at the install
because I don't have an HDTV monitor.
I was told that I couldn't just pick up the box, and that the technician
won't leave until everything is working. To make matters worse, I won't even
be around when they come to do the installation.
Hopefully if I leave a note that says, "Dear Comcast guy, I know what I am
doing, please just leave the box and go about your business." there will be
a box there for me when I get home.
Any helpful advice and or pertinant anecdotes out there?
