MX011ANM Vs XG1v4-A

Just started DVR service, so I headed to my local service center to pick up a dvr capable box. I was given the XG1v4-A. Unfortunately the unit was not functional. Spent a couple of hours this morning on the phone with support, and the verdict was that I need a new one. Upon heading back, I was given the MX011ANM, which is much bigger and seemingly quite a bit older. Upon asking about the difference between them, I was told there was none and that they all do the same thing. Can this be true? Is anyone able to educate me as to the difference between these units, and whether I should want the newer model?

The V4 is too new and too rare for us to be able to answer you. Very few are in circulation.

The V4 is a 4K capable box. If and when Comcast ever delivers 4K signals you may wish you had one. Unless you have a 4K TV and until Comcast actually delivers 4K signals there is probably very little for you to worry about. You are fine with the box you were given.

On the other hand, if you are an audio/video enthusiast and you have a 4K capable TV set you may wish you had the V4 box.

rustyben please spare us any of your technobable responses...
