I'm considering the Sony 57XBR2, which has firewire inputs. Has anyone heard about a STB in the works for DirecTV? Would there be any advantage over one with standard outputs?

Right now the new Sony XBRs with firewire work with absolutely nothing other than a Sony cable STB. It won't even work with Sony's own firewire camcorders.

Ken Ross,


Not exactly. Until today, I would have agreed with you, but then I read this:

The Sonys with Firewire ports will work with the new Mitsubhish Digital VCR. Go to www.mitsubishi-tv.com for more information.
