I got pretty much the same response when I called to inquire about the SA 8000HD. I also asked by email and got the standard response (below).
I have seen press releases in early December about Time Warner rolling out the SA 8000HD in Green Bay. I looked on the TW GB web site but there was no mention of it.
On a different note I saw where SA previewed a Explorer 8300 Multi-Room DVR at the 2004 Consumer Electronics Show. Who knows, maybe we will see something by this summer.

Thanks for writing. We will be rolling out this converter later this year.
I can not give an exact time frame for this but a safe bet would be this
summer. If you have any additional questions please let us know.
