I have had the DCT 6416 for close to 3 years and paid something like $600-$800 for it at the time. The motorola DCX3400 is now available at $400.
Beyond the larger hard drive ( 500 vs 160), would I gain any other advantages in sound and picture quality that one would notice ?

And any chance to trade in and get something off the price ?

Other relative advantages I can think of:

- generates a lot less heat, and you can apparently stack it with your other A/V equipment, rather than having it sit on its own (because of the massive vents required on the 6416).

- You're future-proofed for home networking, whenever Shaw gets around to activating it. The 6416 can't do it.
