Try one more time to call BHN and if they are acting confused then PM Greg McLaughlin on this forum to help with your order.
The difference between firewire and DVI would not be noticeable but the improvement over analog component is worth the upgrade.
Thanks for the info Barry. I have a Mits 65909 w/ Firewire, but w/o DVI, so I have been interested in this box for a while. I was thinking of holding out for the HD PVR, and would still like it (although I don't know whether it will have Firewire), but I'd also like to check out the diff over component. I had been communicating with Greg, via PM, about getting a 3250 before the 4/1 deadline, but when there was a delay in release, and it seemed like the HD PVR would be out shortly, I told him I'd wait. With the HD PVR not due until at least September, I think I'll contact BH to get a 3250.
One more question, if I may: My current 3200(?) does not give a preview while on HD channels, but I have seen a neighbor's Pace box that does. Does the 3250 do preview in HD mode?
