There have been several boxes with the 'ethernet' port on them, including both Pace and Moto. The STBs have a built in DOCSIS Modem and theoretically you could access the internet from that port. When I asked a Shaw 'SuperTech' about it one day, he explained that they are having enough problems with the High Def data stream that they had no intention of complicating matters by enabling the DOCSIS in the STBs.
Perhaps, one day, in a far,far away land, a STB with all of it's included ports, jacks, inputs/outputs and wizbang features will be made available to the general public. I just hope I live long enough to see that day.
If you can then do rather than not. You're your own worst enemy. They're parking their car over there.
