A DCX3400 is a Moto box. I do wonder why a DCX3400 isn't compatible with the head-end in Branford. It's like the box needs some newer equipment for guide data or uses a newer protocol for two-way communication?

New Haven isn't part of the Branford system, and thus is on a completely different upgrade path.

I don't know if there is multi-room equipment on the SA side. You can't just switch a system from one to the other, as all the boxes would have to be swapped out, and AFAIK
, there are very, very rare cases of Comcast changing a system from SA to Moto. If your system is SA, it's going to stay SA.
I don't know how the new Pace/Samsung "XFINITY" branded DVRs that are a few years (or decades in CT) out factor into this. My guess is that they can run on either SA or Moto systems, but I'm not sure on that.
If you want Multiroom, either get DirecTV, cablecard TiVo Premieres, or set up a Win7 MCE system with the Ceton card, and you'll get that functionality.
