I currently have the older box: the Scientific Atlanta 8300HD (Explorer).
About 6 months back I switched over to the newer 8300HDC (i think it utilizes the Navigator software?)-and it was terribly slow.
I love the 8300HD but it has a very small hard drive.
have they fixed the problems with the newer box and, is it worthwhile to switch over?

I don't think there is any advantage to trade in a SA 8300 HD for a SA 8300 HDC. The disk drive is usually the same size. The SA 8300 HDC uses a cable card and many people report still having problems. Navigator still has problems, too. You probably can add an external drive to the SA 8300 HD to get more space. There are several threads that discuss adding an external hard drive to the SA 8300 HD.
