so i got the 6214 from cox in ct yesterday, and i have to say its pretty nice. its pretty much like tivo except without the annoying tivo sounds whenever you press a button. i just took a quick look around the box yesterday and it looks like its got firmware version 9.14, 5c looks like its turned on on most of the digital channels, and the new guide looks like its from echostar. The built in pip function doesnâ€™t look like it works but it does let you switch from one tuner to the next. so if your recording one show you can switch inputs and keep surfing on the other. You can record and schedule shows from the guide and record a show on a specific channel or all channels, you can also set it to record first run only and first run and repeats, it will also record the whole series of a show. it also looks as though the ff and rev functions have three speeds and go back to the last screen break after you press the play button again. so if you are ff'ing and your show starts before you hit the play button it looks like it goes back to the last large screen break. The only gripe I have so far is that the remote barely works. It has to be pointed almost directly at the cable box in order to receive the ir from the remote. The remote has two ir emitters on the top just like the standard cox remote but works much much worse. I tried switching the batteries with no luck. Anyone have any suggestions?
Anyway thatâ€™s a first glance at the box and im satisfied so far

how do you switch from one tuner to the other?
thanks in advance.
|Did I read the reply above right in that the content saved on the hard drive isn't transferrable off of it? There is a "Save to VCR" option in the menu, but I've been thinking about getting a DVD Recorder and don't know if it will work with it. The manual looks as if it was written before dvd recorders were invented, as I can't seem to find any mention of it in there.|
