i just got a 6412 installed. I used to have a cablecard with an internal tuner in my plasma. I was initially going to keep the cablecard and get the DVR but when the tech came, they said i could only have one or the other. So, after a day....i have to say that PQ of HD is not as sharp and realistic as when i was hooked up via the cablecard. I find the picture to be less sharp; and more pixelation when there is fast moving scenes. I would say there is a 15% degradation. I'm going to reinstall my OTA antenna to see the difference. OTA of local channels and cablecard was the same before the DVR. Too bad i did not hear of this problem before i made the swap. The DVR is great but there is a substantial/noticeable decrease in performance. i currently have the dvr hooked up via AR component cables. I'm waiting for my HDMI cables to come to see if that makes a difference.
