I have a system with three DCT6xxx boxes including a DCT-6416 and I
have an HDHomeRun as well.  So my setup is similar to yours.

The only reason I have the 6416 is as a backup (I had to wean my wife
off of it).  At this point, I really no longer need it.  I should
exchange it for a non-DVR box and save some money...

I still don't understand why you don't let Myth control the DCT box
all the time.  I am struggling to see the value in what you are trying
to do.

If you could help us understand, perhaps we could assist.
