Unless you're the exception, I don't believe that TWC has activated, through
the system software, either the firewire, dvi or usb ports on the 8000.

In Houston TimeWarner Cable has the IEEE 1394(FireWire) port and the
DVI port disabled. The box the offer is the Motorola DCT-5100 HD-Cable
boxes, with this box you can get a read-out of what's enabled and
what's disabled:

I'm hooked up to Time Warner Cable in NYC and I'm using the DVI port on
the Pioneer Voyager cable box for HDTV. [Toshiba 30HF83] Looks great,
incidentally...
Meanwhile:
Does anyone know if there is a DVR box that does HDTV? At this point, I'd
be happy to find one that just passes the signal through, without
necessarily recording the HDTV signal (although that would be the
hippest...)

Thanks,

JNG

Scientific Atlanta makes an SA8000HD DVR; capable of recording HDTV (cap =
20hours HD w/160GB hard disk) and it runs SA's own SARA software. It is a
fairly decent box; some glitches still; dual tuners and more. Note that
cable companies typically run either SA, Pioneer or Motorola software on
their headends. Your current Pioneer box indicates your cable co is probably
using Pioneer headend software (SA's own software SARA apparently does not
support Pioneer, Pace, or Mot DVR boxes). That means you will need a SA DVR
with Passport and, from all accounts, that version has not completed testing
nor been released yet. (two locations for good info on this; the 8000 group
at Yahoo or AVS Forum). Additional note: our boxes do not yet have Firewire
on them (version expected o/a summer 2005). It does have a DVI port that is
not yet activated though an update is expected soon (they do offer a SA3250
non DVR box with active DVI).

I haave Time Warner Cable serice in NYC. They installed a Scientic Atlantic Explorer 4250 HDC Box. I have a SONY DVR. It will record allot of prgrams (Except the Pay Per View Stuff) to the hard disc for viewing but I can not burn this into a CD Disc/ (For instance if I want to copy something from the Food Network for later use). It will not copy.

Is it that my box is bad? Should I get it replaced?

Next question, the DVR has a infra red mouse that sits above the cable box. I ask the record to record a program, it senda a signal to the cable box to chage the channel.

In the set up MENU it asks me to enter the code number for the Scientic Atlantic Explorer 4250 HDC Box.

No one at Time Warner knows what the Scientif Atlantic infared code number is?

Do you or do you know where I can find it. It is not at the SONY web Ste.
