Can anyone comment if this Shaw model is the same spec, aside from the larger hard drive as the DCX3400-M being handed out by Eastlink? Thinking of picking up this unit from bestbuy and provisioning it for Eastlink service. So tiered of paying $15/mth rental.
Can anyone confirm that the Shaw boxes do indeed work with Eastlink? I know not all cable company boxes are compatible with other systems, even if the model is the same. The 3400 is a decent price compared to the Eastlink DCT-6416.

Also curious why the HD 6200 Shaw box is $200 cheaper than the Eastlink version. Guess it's the usual "Nova Scotia gouge" in effect. :-)
