I'm a little late to this game. I guess it never occurred to me that there would be a thread just for us lonely Delaware people.
I've read all of the posts about dropouts and pixelation. I just have to add that I don't think it has anything to do with the dual tuners. I've got the single tuner DVR (2408?) and have the exact same problem. Two months ago, I did get the 2412 dual tuner DVR. I brought it home (had to go to New Castle to pick it up) and plugged it in. It had the same problems described here. The next day it locked up and died. I took it back to the Comcast center and they wouldn't give me a new one. They said they were in short supply! Anyway, they gave me a new 2408. I went home and plugged it back in and the same problem still existed.
So, I've had 3 DVRs since they started offering the service. All 3 of them have had the exact same problem. The techs have been out to the house 3 times now and have done all of the things mentioned in this thread (replaced cable, external splitters, etc). My line voltage is fine. I still have the problem.
The latest visit from Comcast was this last Sunday. Some of you may have had this guy before...I'll describe him. He was useless, late 20s, bald (or shaved head), white, 6'1", 210lbs. He turned on the TV, checked the voltage, and said "Its working fine. Call us if you have any further problems." And then he left.
Not being able to watch CSI or Joan of Arcadia in HD without the disruptions is making me a little crazy. I will say that the problem has slightly improved from a few months ago. Still, it is far from acceptable.
Ok, now that I'm done spilling my guts and complaining...
Is anybody here in Northern DE able to get the Philly HD channels OTA? Or, can we get the national HD feeds from D* since we live in the burbs?
