I'm in San Francisco and just upgraded to digital cable. Comcast sent a Motorola DCH70, it worked absolutely great for a day or so, then for no reason...every time I changed channels it took 5 seconds for it to actually do so. It didn't matter if I was scrolling up or down, entering the channel number manually, or selecting it from the guide. Also, if I unplugged the box and plugged it back in, it would again work great for a while...but after an hour or couple hours, the delay would kick back in.
After reporting my problems, they told me the box was defective and sent me a new one...and good grief, it's doing the exact same thing. Am I expecting too much from digital cable?? Or does the DCH70 just stink?? Honestly, it worked perfectly for a while so I can see how good it's supposed to be, but this 5-second delay is killing me.
Please let me know if I'm crazy here :/
