Did they let you purchase the 6200...or did you have to pay the
$9.95/mo? Also, what outlet did you go to? I don't mind a little bit of
a drive for the good stuff :-)

Thanks for all the help!

In getting a 6200 from Comcast I learned that there are two hi-def 
receivers they offer. The 6200 and 5100. The 5100 lacks FireWire and it 
took awhile to find an outlet in town that had the 6200. Comcast 
doesn't discriminate between the 5100 and 6200 when you ask for a 
hi-def receiver so you have to be very specific about which one you 
want. Ideally, you should go pick it up so you can make sure it's the 
right one. Once I found a local outlet that had a 6200 I just had to go 
pick it up. I've been capturing via the 6200's FireWire for a couple 
months now and have had no problems.
