I would say that the likelihood of the box itself not being able to record from both tuners is very low, I mean Motorola will be in a REAL bad situation if that turns out to be the case because they sold a product under false pretenses so I'm certain they'll do anything and everything to make sure the box delivers as promised if they want to remain competitive in this market...
As for whether the box has enough power to do what it's meant for - I have to agree, I'd have to think that Moto would do absolutely anything to avoid having to scrap the 6412 and come up with a new box design.
Just imagine how long that
would take: between the design, QC, production, and Cable-Co validation time. I'd be highly surprised if that would take <1 year.. especially because I'm sure at that point, the CableCos would extend the validation period to make sure this scenario didn't repeat itself.
Plus, imagine the contracts Moto would lose - both contracts for 6412s and others because of the Cable-Cos lost faith..
So, one would think Moto would put every effort into fixing this - without
having to swap hardware.
