Sorry, I did mean 32 bit. The firewire drivers for windows were originally done by Tim M. Moore but there are some later drivers located here But it doesn't like like there are drivers for the 4642.

I don't think you will see the cable box listed without the right drivers - you will likely see unknown device. If Windows doesn't at least chime when you plug into the box then I am guessing that the firewire ports are disabled. If you really want to try this you might want to try to get an older box - ask at a Rogers store or call them.

But I wouldn't count on successfully getting video out of firewire ports as that is generally very flakey. But the channel changes works very reliably and I would recommend it.

Here is another program that works to change channels but it requires working drivers:
