Nag Nag :) Please don't top post, and I've cc'd the mailing list back in.

As far as I recall yes, regular analog cable TV is working.

IR should work (or can be made to work easily) assuming that the board 
uses the standard CX2388x IR interface.

If you can give me ssh access with admin privs to a box, and it's going 
to be available all weekend with a digital cable feed attached, then 
email me privately.

I can hopefully get the digital side working for you.
