Motorola Based STB can not be used on a Cisco/SA plant. For Houston Comcast to switch out the Plant / Headend equipment would cost $$$$$$$$$.
nope they have the SA overlay system it duplicates the motorola CA and SA CA.
so they have GI/Motorola nodes and DCT2000's and DCT2500's and SA4250 SA4250HDC SA8000 SA8000HD SA8300 SA8300HD SA8300HDC RNG200. Note: the motorola DCT5100 and DCT6200 are no longer used in Houston because of no longer supporting Dual HD CA. Plus they push out to 777MHz 64QAM.
My market a former Comcast market now has 870MHz motorola nodes and DCX3200 and DCX3432 also the DCX3432 has 256MB ram and 64MB flash.
Twc now serves north texas the former comcast texas area. our area does have 1 system that is at 750MHz but it is a rural area(greenville and commerce TX). that system has less HD(18) not 51 HD like the metro area, no vod, only ESPN PPV sports package small spanish tier, digital simulcast,H.S.I, digital phone, 68 analogs (metro has 81 analogs includes ch120 for testing)they dont have ESPN2HD they might still have qam64 channels unlike the metro that went all 256qam in 2006.
here is their channel lineuphttp://www.timewarnercable.com/custo...5&Image1=&Zip=

pbs kids sprout
gospel music channel
Big Ten Network
plus 32 HD channels
they do have some premium west coast feeds that the metro does not.
