I recently placed an order from charter to get hd dvr's in three rooms( I'm switching over from dishnetwork since they didn't want to give me a good price in HD because I'm a current customer and they wanted to charge me upwards of a $200 installation fee with an extended contract!).
Well, the service tech guy came out today and I noticed he had cable boxes with no hdmi. I asked him if they had any other cable boxes that included hdmi connections and he informed me that they did but I had to specifically request them and they are the same price. They are just trying to liquidate these old boxes before they install the new ones. I believe the ones he had were Moxi's(?). I asked him if he could place the order himself and reschedule the installation and he did. He was a real friendly, helpful guy and I'm glad he did that to avoid me the hassle. Now I'm just wondering if anyone had any information regarding the new cable boxes charter is offering that include the hdmi connection? In terms of reviews, specs, and any other things I should be aware of. Also, how long can I record in SD and HD?
