I worked extensively with Firewire back in 2002 when I developed D-VHS
decks with JVC. Even back then at its peak, I knew it was on it way out
(especially for A/V applications).
When I had to get a new cable box (a Pace RNG110) for the Comcast H.264 upgrade last year, I tested the IEEE1394 port. It was active, but the bitstream being emitted way out of specification. No D-VHS deck could possibly process that stream.
