Problem: I wanted a DVR but did not want to rent a box from RCN

Solution:
Cable company: RCN Chicago.
Bought a Motorola DCH-3416
Had RCN install a cable card (M-Card)
The first card did not work. The box said invalid card.

Got them to come out again. Tried a few other cards. It now works. Full HD with recording capabilities for the cost of the cable card ($1.50/mo)

Hint: To get into the settings, turn off the box. Hit the OK button 2 to 3 times you should get into the system.

Manual: search online, there are .pdfs

You purchased a 3416 from them and you now own it?
Maybe you got a Tivo S4 from them, otherwise the 3416 they provide you shoul already have the cablecard installed. How much did you "pay" for the 3416????
