The last time I spoke to comcast about ESPN3D they had no idea what I was talking about, lol.
I was under the impression that I had to change out the box, saves me the trip if not.
Thanks for the info,
In some areas Comcast is sending ESPN 3D in MPEG2, in others MPEG4. The older DCH & DCT boxes will only do MPEG2; the newer DCX & RNG can do MPEG2 & MPEG4.
Further, in some areas phone activation is necessary, but in others the channel is active for all.
So it's luck of the draw where you live and what box you can use, and if you have to call or not.
Here is the official Comcast list of 3D MPEG4 boxes:
Motorola DCX3200 (HD set-top box)
Motorola DCX3400 or DCX3416 (HD/DVR set-top box)
Cisco (Scientific Atlanta) RNG150 (HD set-top box)
Cisco (Scientific Atlanta) RNG200 (HD/DVR set-top box)
Pace RNG110 (HD set-top box)
Samsung RNG150 (HD set-top box)
