Samsung HL-S5088W vs s5087w


I want a new HD tomorrow but im not sure whats the difference between these two besides:


The HL-S5088W has some additional features, including a CableCard slot, a TV Guide EPG, two FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports, picture-in-picture, and a slightly improved sound system


Which should I go for? Is there a difference in PQ?


Whats firewire for?


Whats a EPG?

Go for the one with the 1394 ports. New developments in 1394 will open up a whole new way for people to use their TVs. HANA (Home Audio-Video Network Alliance) which relies on 1394 changes all your TV connections from just being point to point to a true home network. This lets you share your content thruout your entire home. No need to buy a $1000 bluray player for each room. You can share one of them with every TV in your home, even simultaniously. The new developments in 1394 will also let you reuse the existing coax and cat5 cables in your home, so you won't need to run new wires network everything together.
