Install happened yesterday (Friday). Tech showed up today and had everything up and running in about 2 hrs. Made his job easy as I had everything in a home run panel from when I rewired a few years ago. He took off the 3 splitters I had and gave me one of the new zero loss amps they're using and was super pleased on virtually no DB loss at any of the terminals. Also changed out all of the connectors outside, so a well done install. Pros/Cons are below. I'm still finding new stuff all the time with these, so this is only a list so far, but im very pleased with these. A huge step up from the old guide and boxes. which is about friggin time for Comcast. Now we just need a more unified channel lineup and some more HD!
The new interface is great.
Auto tune HD
Last 9 channels viewed show up after hitting the recall button
Quick response on the boxes
Multi room DVR
Cons (all minor nitpicks):
Boxes don't seem to work with my Harmony remotes.
Cant pause live TV from satellite boxes
Have to hit 'OK' after entering a channel number
No dedicated button (yet) to go straight to either On Demand or the Apps
XR2 remotes are not backlit. New button layout
No clock on satellite boxes
No way, that I know of, to program the A-B-C-D buttons
