Based on my experience, and some of the posts I have seen, I am ready to try something else. Is there any equipment available 'for purchase' or otherwise that would enable me to rid myself of the equipment that I have but still enjoy all the "benefits" of Comcast?
I would like HD channels.
I would like On Demand Service.
I want a DVR.
I would really like to record 2 channels at once.
I would like to jump from tuner to tuner.
I would like a user friendly guide (like tivo)
I would like a DVR that does not turn off when my TV is turned off.
I would like the sound to keep up with the video.
I would like a remote that works without me standing on my head.
I have a HD Tivo sitting idle becuase no one from Comcast can get it to work with the multi media cards. Now I am blessed with a "free" comcast DVR.
I have the output of my Comcast STB going to one of the inputs of my ReplayTV DVR, and I can record On Demand. I have to do a manual recording, since On Demand programs obviously aren't in the scheduling grid.
