You still get the Comcast discount ($15/mo) off internet service if you have cable tv service, so there wasn't any drawback to switching our phone service back to Qwest. I think Qwest offers a $5/mo discount off their DSL service when you also have their local phone service, but we decided to stay with Comcast for now.
Yes, the pause/play trick works on my box too. It's annoying to have to do it, but at least it works. Thanks!
I had to call Comcast today about a technical problem, so I asked them about the new DVR boxes. The CSR knew that they are coming in the near future, but unsurprisingly, he had no idea of a launch date, or even whether it will be the 6408 or the 6412 (keep your fingers crossed for the 6412, which has a 120GB hard drive). He also had no idea about a launch date for the NFL channel and no new information on ABC-HD or PBS-HD. Always the same story.
