From what I understand RCN is better than Service Electric as for HD service. I'd be curious to see how the pricing of RCN versus D* stands when comparing full HD tiers on both. Beware that you may get a "deal" on pricing now, but RCN could jack your rates next year...
I have the Motorola DCT6416 III currently. In the beginning the hardware acted very poor, but I'm assuming in the last 3 months they have flashed the units or something as it is 1000x better. The interface leaves a lot
to be desired but does the job. (This coming from a guy who used Windows Media Center 2005 for 2+ years and that interface is awesome
, so I am a little spoiled) The remote has far
too many buttons that are, IMO, not needed. But, like I said, it does the job.
