I haven't called Comcast yet, but will when the office opens.
Any thoughts are appreciated!
It's probably two colliding issues, Comcast's "switched digital" protocal and a "HDMI handshake" dropped connection
prompted by switching inputs. Switching "channels" originates a call
for the new "switched digital 'channel'" and refreshes
the "HDMI handshake" connection.
Comcast tried to get me to accept a Pace RNG110 but that model has no RF output for daisy-chaining.
I stood my ground, holding out for the Motorola DCX3200 that offers flexible connectivity options.
My Motorola DCX3200 is daisy-chained to five recorders, one in the same room and four others in a second room; and directly connected via S-Video and composite outputs to two other recorders in the same room. The DCX3200 component output is connected to a HD "Ready" widescreen LCD TV (that doesn't have a HDMI input). The DCX3200 single white/red audio output is split with "Y" adapters to provide audio to the TV and two line in connections to two recorders in the same room. That's a total of seven recorders connected to a single Motorola DCX3200.
The Motorola DCX3200 is seen in the first photo, the connectivity illustration is seen in the second photo and some of the "Y" adapters are seen in the third photo.
