The picture from my 8640HDC is cutting out about every half hour. The only way to get the picture back is to reset the box. If this issue persist... I'll have to get a new DVR soon. What's the best DVR one can get from TWC NY these days?

Wondering that myself as my 8640 is getting a bit long in the tooth. I've had to perform several hard resets recently.

I can recommend what TWC calls its "Enhanced DVR," the Arris DCX3600-M, which I got at the end of 2014. It's responsive, rarely has any hiccups, and has six(!) tuners and a huge storage capacity (1 terabyte or about 150 hours of HD).

I have picked up two DCX3600's and am satisfied-

Nony-DCX3600-Diagnostic-Invocation

Quick Tips On Reboot and Diagnostics -
1. Press and hold the power key on the remote for 10 seconds to force a reboot
2. During the countdown (L-10 ,L-9 ,L-8,etc), power on and hit select for a detailed display of the components as they are being loaded
3. During the countdown or later, power on, press and hold select for 10 seconds, then hit Up for the OCAP diagnostics
4. After the load completes, press and hold select for 10 seconds, and hit Down for the ODN diagnostics
5. With the STB on, hit power, then select, for quick access to the Motorola STB diagnostics
6. With the STB on, hit A, B, C, Settings, power off, power on, Settings, Left, to access the Field Tools menu.
7. To enable device ports/functionality (eSATA, MoCA, USB), requires a little more button pressing and will not be covered in this post, for obvious reasons.

Multichannel Trick Play: (this section should be visible)
The DCX3600 can actively buffer 4 to 6 hours of TSB (up to 1 hour per tuner). The buffering kicks in after power on, and is reset at power off. Specifically, the last 60 minutes of the first 6 channels that you tune to will be buffered, and 4 of the 6 will continue to be buffered, even if you channel surfed to many other channels, after the initial 6.
Here's what you do:
1)Power Off -->Frees up the tuner assignments
2 )Power On --> Assigns tuner[0] to its default
3) Select any channel as a filler -->Assigns a channel to tuner[1]
4) Successively select the 4 channels that you want to buffer.-->Assigns tuners[2,3,4,5]
Note that tuners[0,1] will lose their buffering as you channel surf.
(You can watch the assignments in real-time from p.8 of the ODN diagnostics)

Comes in very handy for Sunday morning talk shows.
