    not sure i can get rid of all the comcast boxes as i have a slingbox attached to 1 of the boxes so my son can access our cable package (all the premium movie channels) and on demand. does the mini do comcast on demand (or roamio for that matter)?? he pays no cable tv charges this way other than high speed internet

    You should be able to hook the slingbox up to the mini as you can get composite video breakout cables for it.

    On demand through mini and Roamio for Comcast is supported in some markets.

    You can sell your lifetime S3 on eBay and it will cover the cost of a mini+lifetime.

    Howardlee:
    Go to the IL Atty. General site: http://illinoisattorneygeneral.gov/consumers/filecomplaint.html
    There is a form you fill out and mail in. I got a surprisingly fast result. Basically, they forward the complaint to Comcast, in Philadelphia, which seems to take these things seriously. The Philadelphia office called me and fixed it immediately. Be sure to include screenshots of their web site quoting the $1.15 fee. Here is the funny thing: the lady in Philadelphia who called me to fix this issue was the same one who had been unable to fix it in the past.

    Sell it on ebay. Worth around $300-$350. That's what I plan to do with mine.
