    Hi. I have an Explorer 8300 HD..

    http://www.scientificatlanta.com/consumers_new/CableBoxes/8300hd.htm

    I also have a Mac Mini Intel and want to know if there is a way i can view my pictures/etc on the Mac Mini from the DVR. Also, is there a way to retrieve my saved shows from the DVR and save them to my Mac Mini? Is this possible over a phone line/ethernet/wireless?

    Thanks

    Lots of those SA Explorers have the Firewire disabled in the firmware though - it depends on if your provider has them activated.
