Can anyone tell me where to get, or provide me with a key for deciphering the serial number meaning for this device (SA8300 any submodel)? I am specifically trying to determine manufacture date from the serial number.

Thanks in advance.

No, but they usually have a date of manufacture decal on them. Check the back and bottom of the chassis. Plus, the 8300 was discontinued in 2011. The 8300HD was discontinued in 2009. And the 8240HDC was discontinued in 2011. Most/all of the 8240/8300 DVRs now issued by Cox are older, refurbished units.

Thanks, unfortunately I am looking at data of 1000's of units so I need the key.
