Thanks for chasing this down because they definitely changed something.
Firewire stopped working in Edmonton a week ago but it is all back up
now. FYI - all the HD channels between 200 and 214 work here (using a
DCT-6214 and DCT-6200) I haven't checked the state of the CCI flag yet
(actually I didn't know it existed until I read this thread).
