And guys, here is some other useful info:
1. WPXI is owned by Cox Communications, who has its own cable company. They are holding out for some big money, to allow Comcast to air what are already free OTA signals!!! I actually spoke to the engineer at WPXI about a month ago, hoping to see some of the Olympics in HD. He told me that his station is in NO hurry to allow Comcast to broadcast their signals and screw them up. How about that for a mind set!!!
2. If your analog or HD signals got alittle worst lately, it may be the firmware update to 7.15. If you check other forum sites, you will discover that members in Philly and Atlanta have been complaining about the newer firmware making many of the channels worst than what they were. Members in Atlanta are reporting that Comcast there have gone back to 7.07!!!
3. The lead tech, Brian, from Comcast in Greensburg has also told me that they are having problems with the 6208 box. Analog programming NOT as good, and people using the DVI out have had there boxes shut down!!! Also picture quality on the DVI out, NOT as good as using component out!!! He said he personally returned his 6208 for the 6200 he had upgraded from. I have NOT had the shutdown using the DVI out, but my component out actually is a more coroful and sharper picture. I have kept my 6208, because of the DVR.
4. In late fall or early winter the new 6412 HD box will be available. It will have a 2 tuner setup. Can actually watch a different channel than you are taping.
5. And according to my home theater speciality store, they also highly recommend, spliting the cable signal. One directly to the TV for analog viewing, and one to the cable box. That is what I have done. You get better analog that way, and through the component input we can use the DVR and watch all channels (digital, HD, etc.)
6. And finally, about 2 pages back someone was possibly going to switch to satellite when they finally have TIVO, etc. It just happened: both Direct TV and Dish Network have the boxes that have 2 tuners, OTA input and DVR. They must be purchased from both companies (NO rental on these) for $999.99. There are reviews in Sound and Vision, and you can go to Radio Shack and find out how it all works!!! Good Luck!!!
