Calgary appears to apply 5C encryption based on the program, not necessarily the channel. However the 5C flag has been on in the past and maybe in the future. I have had massive problems with getting reliable recordings tho. I found how to enter the diagnostic menu for the , turn the power off and press the select button within 2 seconds.

I spent a long time on the phone with Verizon tech support, and their Cisco rirewire person reported back that they are only required to provide video out. Just got a dct and read a few older posts about doing firewire capture and was wondering if it can still be done with this older model or if shaw here in vancouver island disabled it or added encryption.

There are very few people getting a decent firewire output out of a major Canadian cable co’s Rogers, Shaw, Videotron STB – it often doesn’t work consistently and even when it does many of the channels may not be recordable due to 5C restrictions. Only works with one cable box: The time now is No 5c channels YET. Unfortunately, I think that problem is TWC related. Worked through this guide: Find all posts by Xiphoid. Cheers, Corey Last edited by cclayton; at Cablevision seems to have disabled firewire for all premium channels Originally posted by Stupendous Man: I am out of HDMI ports to use so I would like to connect the firewire port for digital video and audio and use the firewire connection to view the cable box.

Even then, they would crop off part of the picture. Retrieved from ” http: If you pick Scientific Atlanta then it dose not seem to work for changing Channels. Thanks for posting the info MickMcGeough – I had everything configured firewire moto for channel changing and recording but gave up because of the difficulty of figuring out what was 5C and what wasn’t.
Research on the mailing list confirms that there are several other users with similar problems with the RNG, whether they know it or not.

For each problem I eventually found a posting somewhere that described ithe problem I was having and a good work around, but it was typically referenced as being caused by chipset issues.
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe [0xefff]. Works with 4 cable boxes. I switched after it stopped working. Firewire chipset seems to be very important.
Works fine using Pace, P2P, Mbps. Controlling Motorola DCT via firewire revisted. Connecting via point-to-point was flaky and not as reliable as broadcast. It seems that they introduced a firmware update I don’t remember the version number that broke it for me.
