If you don't know what SARA is, how do you know you are not using it?
Technically, it is only relative to SARA and Cox-Phoenix, where I've tested the contents of the first post (Tips & Tricks). As you'll find out, even systems using the same software (SARA or PASSPORT) will enable different options depending on what they feel comfortable with. Within this thread, there may be discussions of options that work differently depending on location and how it's implemented there.
There is another 8300 thread
that deals mostly with HDMI/DVI connections, but both threads discuss more than the topics suggest.
There are no SA8300HD TWC/Comcast/whatever threads. I'm not even sure there are 8300's running anything right now but SARA for that matter. I don't know of any tips you can try that would hurt your system if it didn't work. I've tried to keep the first post updated with whatever was added in the thread. That way you don't have to read the whole thread to find the latest tips.
