Anyone know if the Dish HDTV receiver has firewire out on it?

It does NOT. I have the Dish 811 and it has every audio/video connector you can imagine, but there's no FireWire port.

As an aside: The Dish 811 is a good system badly in need of a software update. I was assured by Dish tech support that said update should be forthcoming in the next month.

Dish and Firewire... UGH!

To make matters worse, the Dish 921 HD-DVR was supposed to have firewire enabled this Spring. Two weeks ago, they cancelled it, and new 921 units ship with the firewire port covered up!

There is a company that hacks the Dish 6000 to include a Firewire port, but it's colossally expensive ($1000 to $2000 total).
