"The Miami DC757X HD can be deployed as a standalone non-DVR product, or subscribers can add DVR capability through the external Serial-ATA hard disk drive port."

Is this a unique to the Miami or does Motorola have a similar product?

scanpa. Have you had your training on the Pace SD & HD DVRs yet and if so was the HD-DVR the Tahoe?

Nope. Not Yet. Late March or early April.

I think all are DVR's

From what I've read, it sounds like Pace is just adding CableCards to their existing STBs. I believe all three boxes mentioned in the article (Miami, Tahoe, and Vegas) already exist, but without the CableCard system.

I'm very glad to hear the Pace is finally going the CableCard route. I am very intrigued by their boxes (particularly since they have working eSATA ports) and am hoping they can continue their great work. The upcoming July 1st deadline had me worried, but it seems they're ready for it now.

User error. Replace user.

There is no non-CableCARD equivalent to Miami in our current product portfolio.

Lindend: Does the Miami have single or twin tuners and is the Maimi positioned as an entry level HD stb like the Vegas SD-DVR or feature rich HD stb like the Tahoe HD-DVR.

Darrin,

You know the drill. I can't comment on features and/or product positioning.

However, if someone is curious, they can always drop by the demo area and ask.

If I read the link in my own post then I would have seen that Pace say the Miami is cost effective and feature rich. Looking at the facia of the Miami, it looks more Tahoe than Vegas.
Picture here:

Product positioning looks promising.

The Miami has a single tuner.

The Miami is now listed on the Pace website.

"Pace's Miami box, which sports a Serial-ATA hard disk drive port, will become available in July, according to Tim O'Loughlin."
