About the new 6412 dual tuner hd dvr...
I was told, when I got two a week ago, that the dual tuners would or should be active on 2/1/5. I really doubt that, knowing how they will tell you anything, then the delays begin. People getting the 6412 from mediacom, did you notice the remote isnt even the right remote? It works, but its the remote for the older dvr's. One key button missing is the "swap" button, to toggle between tuner-one and tuner-two. I'd guess, when the software is ready, they will tell you to swap remotes, if you want to use the new software features. Or, guess you could get some kinda 3rd party remote too on your own???
The 6412 DOES hold a lot more recording time. Mine's stuffed right now, and it just says 28% full. The old 6208 would have never held this many recordings without a 95% full.
