I haven't hooked it up yet, but also wanted to point out for all it only has a coaxial output. It's a Huawei DC730
Hmm, it comes with an infrared cable. That's cool.
And according to the instructions, you just plug it in and wait 15 to 30min for an automatic activation. I wonder if they know which house this box is being hooked up to? I've basically told everyone I know to call and order at least the free box.....why not. Then, if you don't need it, maybe you can pass it around to a friend or family member who does need one.
The part that bugs me about this transition is my perfectly fine Hauppauge analog tuner hooked to my computer...to stream live analog tv via my LAN network...will be useless. I have to investigate a slingbox I guess.
