As far as I'm aware--no (there might be though, but I haven't run across how
to do it). And yes, it's a 4P4C or RJ-22 jack.*

anything out of the box at all?
If you have a Windows box, give this software a try (it's free):
I was able to get this to work even when I couldn't get anything to work
between the D10 and the MythTV system. This will at least help us determine
if the connection is good and if the port is working.
Quick question: What revision of the box do you have? There are three
different versions, depending on who actually made the box. You should have
either a D10-100, D10-200 or D10-300. They are all controlled just a bit
