Then call and order one! They start installing them on Monday!

You can order HDDVR's and HD's. If you have any old style boxes, you will have to trade those in to get the new.

In other words, if you have a regular digital box on one tv, and an hddvr on another tv, you have to trade in BOTH boxes for the new stuff.

Their not allowing the 2 different boxes in the same house.

Enjoy!

They are SA boxes, (they tested the Samsung ones) but the samsung kinda sucked. I believe the ones they are launching are the SA 8300HC's for dvrs and the 3250HCs for regular boxs.

They do have a problem with them though they have trouble using interactive services such as "My account on-demand" and the "News on-demand thingie" also problems with the "Interactive TV/ Voting" Where you can do the iPolls and such.

Sorry for not replying earlier, I was battling migraines all weekend long.

Steven already gave you the model numbers.

Their rentals. I am unaware if they are going to be selling them. They are doing this due to an FCC regulation of "removable security".

Also note, that if you order the box, you MUST upgrade all your boxs.

Example You want to replace the digital box in the bedroom and you got a dvr in the living room, in order to repalce the bedroom you have to replace the DVR, they will not let you have 2 different box types either you have the new "HC" boxes or the old ones. So if you dont want to lose your info on your DVR id recommend against upgrading.

ok so, i called bhn, and told em that i would like to upgrade to the newer boxes, and the guy simply told me, (according to an email they got) that i cannot just call and ask for a change of box, for the newer ones (the guy dint seem to b quite nice about it either, and all i heard what that aim sound in the background, lol)

so how in the hell am i gonna get the new ones then :( , dont get me wrong, the boxes i have are running beautifully..but im the kind of people/customer, that likes to have the latest they have to offer

ideas? hook up? much apreciated! :)

Just called CFL Brighthouse and they are giving out new HD DVR's with Navigator software. I was told that I do NOT have to switch out all my cable boxes ( I have 3, only 1 Hd DVR), to just bring in the box I want to switch out. I'm on my way in an hour.

Not t mention now they have to assign the "cable cards" to your account and setup a whole different set of "services" on the back end side. So it makes it easier if all your equipment is the same.
