I have the Motorola DCT 3416 I. Is there a newer model. I have the option to upgrade. I thought i heard there was a newer one that was shiny black? Or should I just keep this one as it is working fine? Thanks

If your talking a DVR tuner then yes. I got a new one a few months ago but it's silver not black but much nicer with no visible buttons. I also haven't been haviong so many errors with it. If you go to your local Comcast center you can switch out just let them know you want the latest one. It's the DCH2416. Here's a pic of it

It's the DCH3416, not the DCH2416. Other than its use of a cable card, now required for new cable boxes, and the new case, it's probably not any different than a DCT3416.

Although some have reported that it's more responsive, the same kind of variability can be found in different samples of all of the previous models.

It was a typo the link is right though

Got the new silver DVR and it messes up just as much, if not more, then the old one. And that was my reason for exchanging it. Go figure.
