I exchanged my purchased 6208 for a 6412 from Cogeco without problem . They were excellent and accomodating .I think they get a bum rap at times .
The old adage still applies "the grass is not always greener ".The 6412 PQ is not good , even HD is worse than the 6208 . The SD on the 6208 was not as good as my old DCT2000 but HD was stunning . The 6412 is just plain poor on all .The HD constantly drops out , with tiling ,and pixelation .The SNR and AGC both rate "good" so I don't think it is a weak signal .I read on another site that the 6412 does not handle high signal strength particularly well ,so I split off the signal feed , which dropped SNR and AGC into "fair"but I think PQ is worse ,certainly no better, although tiling and pixelation improved .I am going to reset tonight but I am not hopeful .If nothing improves ,I guess I'll call Tech support .
To Tubby , the volume still fluctuates ( on the same channels ) so I conclude that my AVReceiver is the culprit ,although it worked well with the DCT 2000.
Your experience would confirm this as well .I read (on another site as well ) that there is an incompatability (pass through and decoding of DD levels )between Motorola and some other manufacturers of AVRs.
I'd be interested in the experiences of others ,meanwhile I'll advise of any progress .
