Thanks for the info.

The firewire port on my 3416 STB is enabled but not active. I thought it could be either the firewire port on my PC or the firewire cable. I don't have another computer to test. My only hope is a better cable to try out.

BTW, the firewire cable I'm using is from local computer store for $10.
