That has nothing to do with the hardware of the HD vs HDC models, which are, technically, the same thing (HDC has more memory though). It has to do with the SOFTWARE AND OPERATING SYSTEM VERSIONS USED BY YOUR CABLE CO!
Much like how on a typical Dell PC your desktop and navigation will be different depending on wether you are using Win2000, WinXP Home or Vista. It's the same machine, just different OS for a different look and feel.
