Re: Availablility of Motorola 6141

Yes, 6-1-4-0. Best Buy has had them on shelves for months. Motorola doesn't list them anymore, so I don't know why they still have them on the shelves (or even if they still do... it's Christmas; I'm not going anywhere near a BB)

I had the same W-T-F moment. Of all the D3 cablemodems on the shelf, only the SBG6580 is on anyone's approved list. (it's also the most expensive)

[The only place you'll see a pallet is the distribution center. They won't send that many to an individual store.]

Both the 6120 and the 6141 are on the Time Warner approved list.

Can you find me a link to the this 6-1-4-0. Ebay would do.

Good luck.

6121 And it looks like the Zoom 5341J is on the list now.

It's not an approved device, so why would I bother looking for one?

wait the SB6120 is supported now?

Also I would say to anyone if you can't get a SB6141 go with the: Zoom 5341J
Netgear CMD31T
Motorola SBG6580

The reason I am saying this is TWC is already launching 8 channel downstream bonding and the Dallas area and NYC metro areas already have 6 channel bonding on the downstream which will probably go to 8 in 2013. Now I had heard on one of the cable tv tech forums that the Cisco 10k CMTS' were telling 4 channel modems to stop bonding on the downstream (6120, 6121, .etc) So I warn that there may be some issues in areas that have Cisco 10k's especially Austin/waco texas which seems to use 10k's as their primary CMTS brand. I know that North Texas had or has Cisco 10k's as I was on one for the longest and then got switched to a brand new Arris C4.

I personally have seen the zoom brand of modems at my local staples which is about 3 or 4 blocks from my house.
