Will the VOOM receiver have Firewire support to record not just OTA but also the movie channels? I am interested in learning all the outputs of the receiever.
rtt2 said:No firewire. The head engineer working on Voom said on the Yahoo Voom Group forum that it would not support firewire. However it will have component and DVI.
No, there's no firewire on the first runs and, I thought this was clear; I don't know yet.

No, the boxes won't be upgradable to Firewire, or no, customers won't
have to buy a new box?

I do recognize, however, the move to 1394 and the
upgrade to MPEG 4 creates some things to think about--
which is why it's not on there right now and won't be until
we know how, and decide, to deal with it.
