I have had pretty good success with at Motorola DCT3400 and a Pace 
775D.  I am in Saskatoon, and rarely see a failed recording.  The 
firewire port occasionally becomes disabled on the Pace 775 and I have 
to reactivate the box through shaw's webpage.  This only happens every 
3-4 months.

I haven't tried to newer Motorola boxes that they are selling now.
