Thanks, I believe this is one of those parts that has the mirroring although I haven't really spent much time checking it out.

I have to say, this box is noisy, it would have been nice if they spent maybe $1 or so more and used a quieter fan. I asked the CSR I've been working with to check for an Arris model which is supposed to be markedly quieter. If that doesn't happen I'll probably take it back and pick up the older Moto like I had before, it has fewer tuners and a different UI, but this box is not for my main use anyway but for another part of the house where a DVR is handy to have so I can easily live with just the 2 tuners.

I do like the UI speed and look, I just can't deal with the noise and the use application doesn't allow for an inside the cabinet placement.

I have the Arris X1 DVR and I find it very quiet.

That's good to know, now I just hope the CSR can locate one, thanks for the confirmation.
