Firestore Voucher - XLH1 Six City Tour

I'm wondering a few things about the Firestore FS-4 Pro rebate that Canon gave away on the six city tour. After attending the event, I purchased my H1 during the specified time and sent off my firestore rebate card from the tour.

First, has anyone successfully done this? Actually received the firestore DTE recorder after attending the event and sending in the rebate card?

(I know there's a pretty long wait specified on the rebate card, something like up to 12 weeks, so I'm not incredibly suprised that it hasn't arrived yet, just curious).

Second, is the FS-4 Pro even HD capable with the XLH1? or will it only do SD? I was looking on Firestore's website and noticed that there are many other models that include HD capatability in their description (i.e. FS-4Pro HD, FS-4 HD, and of course the Canon-riffic FS-C)

I don't know much about the firestores, but I'll feel stupid if I'm waiting +3 months for something that isn't even compatable with the H1's HD formats? Is there a firestore HD upgrade or something? Did Canon give a freebie that's essentially worthless with their H1?

Thanks for any help on this.
