I hope I'm not treading over old ground, but is there any indication as to when the PRIME 6 will be available for purchase? Comcast continues to insist that they will not allow me to increase the number of channels I currently have available to watch/record unless I return my cableCARD and use one of THEIR tuner boxes, on the grounds that cableCARD is an old technology that "needs" to be phased out. (Can you say "corporate greed" and "monopolistic"? I thought you could!) I have been very happy overall with my PRIME setup, but with one thing and another, it's beginning to look like I'll either have to switch to another provider (Google TV is slowly making its way out to my area), or be stuck with my very limited number of channels if I upgrade to the PRIME 6! How much longer will we have to wait until the PRIME 6 comes on the market?
Point them to their own website:
