That was me . I'm glad you had a coupon. Afterwards I realized I could have given you a 10% off coupon but forgot about it at the time, so I'm glad you already had a 12% off one.
Well, nice to (almost) meet ya!!!
I opened the case. It has a single IC providing 1GB DDR2 SDRAM (H5PS1G63EFR).
Elite is running software version 14.9.
I called comcast cablecard line to pair it from my series 3 to the elite. Everything went smooth over the phone, but only local channels are coming in. Calling comcast again hopefully with better results
How does that compare with the two tuner Premiere? Is that more memory?
The original Premiere has 512MB of DDR2-800.
There's surprisingly little "going on" on the motherboard. I mean that as a compliment. Pretty clean.
How's the general performance? Better, about the same?
Just picked one up from BB in Melbourne, FL. They still have one other in stock. The guy in the Magnolia dept didn't know they were in untill he did an inventory check.
Used 10% coupon
Interesting. Wish it were easier to sell TiVos. Also wish there was a Preview for sale.
From an electrical engineering perspective that is a very clear circuit board. I'm still running through setup so I don't have anything to add yet. Some more pictures below...
Is it the same broadcom chip? Sbiller you should check the drive label also especially since they had to find one for me .
Some other info from the inside of the box.
There is a Pulse Diplexer 1125-1525 MHz 75 Ohms related to the MoCA interface.
There is 128M of flash memory provided by a Numonyx® Axcell P30-65nm Flash Memory 128-Mbit, 64-Mbit Single Bit per Cell (SBC)
Comcast did some troubleshooting and nothing worked. They sent another refresh and told me to wait another 45 mins. He verified that the cablecard Id, host and data were the same as what is on my screen. Still no channels, any suggestions on what to tell them to do or try if they still aren't coming in?
Unfortunately the Broadcom chip has that monster heat sink on it. I'm not sure how BKDTV figured out which chip was in the Premiere. I'm certainly not going to try to pry that heat sink off.
Perhaps he was a beta tester with contacts in the company...
New SD screen related to MoCA.
New Cable Lineup screen???
Has anyone made it through guided setup yet? I seem to be unable to get past the cable channel setup. It keeps sending me back to selecting my network in the Tampa Area.
Then after that you have to do a software update to 14.9.
