Hi Guy's

I just need to double check this before I fry myself and end up looking like this.... : maggie :
I'm about to attempt my first jtag (wey hey) on the 4000n, I've been reading a few tuts and posts etc... to make sure I've covered everything, but one thing I've came accross in this tut, http://www.world-of-digital.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=8501&d=1130584235 is that it say's 'Switch off your PC and connect the serial cable end of the Jtag to your computer and reboot.
(Make sure that you also plug in your stb but not the cable) erhhh!! does this mean power the box to the mains??? I'm sure the box isn't meant to be live is it at the time of doing the jtagging.
