For the rebooting, etc issue.. I don't think it can be 100% hardware, or even software.. for the amount that have the issue.. its too high of a number for just a few pieces of equipment bad sort of thing.
But as 57 said.. like some of his clients.. I have had pretty much NO issue. I have had ONE random reboot, since I got the box, pretty much when it came out.
I am wondering if its something from the headend.. that in bad areas, loosing signal temporarily, etc.. that its causing it to reboot or something?
My area, I have had maybe 2 'local' outages/problems in like 7 years (other than the few outages that effected say all Ontario) and is very stable. (always full internet speed, etc).
