The 3416 has HDMI, you can try and pick one up at your nearest depot.

There have been some reports recently that Comcast has been removing 5C encryption in various parts of the country (see mythtv user forums). I'm curious as to what channels are 5C encrypted in Boston.
Yes, I've been doing this for a while. Up until recently, only locals were available, but a few weeks ago, 5C was removed from Discovery, ESPN, TNT, INHD, etc. I've been away for 2 weeks, so I hope it's still that way....not sure if this is permanent or not.
I've had good luck with it, but every once in a while I get a funky recording on my 6412 that is garbled or comes across with some odd artifacts.
