There is also the DCX3400M, which has a 500G drive and is supposed to be the Master for AnyRoom subscribers.

How does that compare to a DCH3416?

The 3416 would have a 160GB drive

 

3416  The last 2 digits indicates the drive size.

Thats interesting.  Because I called Comcast and asked for a more updated box and they told me that the 8300HDC is the most updated that they have.  I found this to be disturbing as this box came out in 2004.  How do I go about getting the most up to date one?  I have a 60 inch 1080P TV and only being able to get 1080i is almost a dealbreaker

Comcast passes down the signals from the networks as is.  Local stations, networks and cable channels only broadcast in 1080I and 720P.  No one broadcasts in 1080P.  Switching to a RNG200 will not get you any better picture or higher resolution than you are getting now.  It is the same with all TV and Sat providers.

 

Since your 8300 is a HDMI box, there is no advantage to a RNG200 unless you have a 3D set.  Keep checking back at your local office, since there is a rush for HD boxes at the holidays, you might find better supply of the new boxes around February if you really feel you need one.  You won't see a difference in picture quality or resolution.

 

Most 1080P TV's upconvert all the inputs to 1080P which is the native resolution of the display.
