Have you had any problems with it? What is the difference betwen this and the DCX3200?

I think it may be a Moto box... I know the RNG150 is a SA/Cisco box but it looks like the 150N is a moto box?

looks yes, does it have the label, yes, thats about it.....

theres two 150s under two different companies...just because of the pace/sa brand names....but both are made by cisco....dunno why moto would pay, let alone cisco allow them to rebrand...perhaps it was a joint venture to get cisco into the moto market...which would be the logical reasoning.....

The Cisco RNG150 is a great box. I haven't had any issues with mine whatsoever.

Yup, after doing some research the RNG150N is the same as the Motorola DCX3200M P2.

Where did you do your research?

The RNG 150 is a Cisco branded box and the DCX 3200M is a Motorola branded cable box (with Moca for AnyRoom DVR)... the RNG 150 is even shown in the SA section in the link that nysports4evr posted

And look what it says on the CC faq page linked, "Motorola DCX3200M P2/RNG 150N"

Let's set things straight.
RNGxxx model numbers would at least appear to be not the original manufacturer model number, whether its comcast assigned or something else I don't know. So It's not surprising to see Pace, Cisco, and Moto equipment with RNGxxx model numbers.

Comcast RNG100 is a rebadged/custom Cisco ??? (not sure, maybe made specifically for comcast)
Comcast RNG150 is a rebadged/custom Cisco 164xHDC
Comcast RNG200 is a rebadged/custom Cisco 8540/8550HDC

And the
Comcast RNG150N is a rebadged/custom Motorola DCX-3200M P2 (but without the new P2 frontpanel, it has a P1 style frontpanel, No clock/channel display and no message light)

The Pace boxes RNG110, RNG150N (not the moto DCX3200M P2 but an original Pace box), and RNG200N Don't appear to be rebadged versions of standard production models, they only have RNGxxx model numbers. But, Pace boxes normally are DCxxxx or TDCxxxx.

wish I could get that box here. My dcx3416 is a space hog while my two rng110s are really small.
