    Isn't there some kind of FCC mandate that states that each cable co. needs to provide a box with Firewire capabilties?

    Yes, there is a mandate. It took effect April 1. You can read it right here. Refer to page 50.

    It applies to all cable companies, and not just those who signed on to the original proposal. It does not apply to satellite providers.
