Have you tired taking the cable line that comes from the wall and hook it up to your TV? (bypass the cable box)

Don't know if we're on the same network, but ours is fine too.

The people that helped me activate my DVR + HD over the phone were exceedingly polite. The last on-site techs that came to the house were a different story though.

I had it with Comcast after a third DVR crapped out and they refused to come to my house. I told the lady on the phone that if they told me i had to take MORE time off work to go to an office and exchange the DVR I would go to another company...they did, and I DID. Went to Directv. Some of the comcast folks are extremely rude.

Sadly some are and I cannot WAIT to get rid of Motorola boxes. All they do is crap out and it's making us look bad.

I can't wait until you guys do too. I hate that box. It can be infuriating at times.

When are we getting new boxes?

I just got a Motorola HDDVR from Comcast a few weeks ago. It has worked flawlessly so far. How long do they last and how do they crap out?

The fact that they make you personally return the unit to some office is just dumb. People have jobs and other things to do. They (Comcast) can't spring for a postage paid package?
