Ethernet port

I've seen in a couple of places that the ethernet port on these boxes will pull an IP and is pingable. Anyone have any experience mucking around with this? I spoke to my cable provider today and they said there's a possibility that the box will be able to play video from a home computer some day. Apparently it's up to Motorola.

Re: Ethernet port

I don't know of any cable company actually using it for a cable modem. The Tivo upgrade is using the DOCSIS modem internally, but I believe the Ethernet port is still disabled. The new DCX series have DOCSIS 3 modems.
