im currently a nyc time warner subscriber and have an analog cable box (general instruments cft 2200). i want to get a digital cable box. but what kinda inputs and outputs does it have? the analog box has coaxial input/output and composite.


well i have a standalone dvr (pioneer 640) to record my tv show and it needs composite. so my question is will the digital cable box also have composite? and what other inputs and outputs does it have, and what brand or model is it? links?


is any1 here from nyc and is using a digital cable box from twc in nyc? please let me know. thx in advance.

You will have to call your local TWC to see if they have enabled/updated the 3250HD to turn on the DVI port. Many have. Not all locations carry the same stuff.


TWC passes what they get for HD. If the program is broadcast in 480i you get it in 480i, 720p, you get it in 720p, ect.. There is no 1080p broadcast available anywhere in the USA as of yet. Blu-Ray is the only thing that has true 1080p available.


The SA8300HD can be ordered with two different sized hard drives if I remember correctly. Call TWC and ask which one they have.

720p/1080i is broadcast HDTV. Your TV will be the determining factor. You either have an LCD based HDTV running at 720p, 768p or 1080p or you have a plasma running at 720p, 768p or possibly 1080p or you have a CRT based display running at 1080i.
