Re: Digital Transport Adapter Unboxing Photos

Great work on those pictures. FWIW I believe the Cisco and Motorola DTA's also have only RF output. That is definitely unfortunate. While there is no noticeable difference IMO between Component, S-Video, and Composite under Standard Def, there is absolutely a worse picture with RF. Although the ability to receive ALL your digital channels is a huge plus, and the reception is 100 times better than straight analog. You can receive all the premium channels right? I appreciate the IR sender, that's handy! The power supply is very thin, which means it will only take up one spot in a surge protector, also good. If Comcast would commit to pushing these to Northern NJ in the next year, I might stay with them come April.
