I have a system with three DCT6xxx boxes including a DCT-6416 and I
have an HDHomeRun as well. So my setup is similar to yours.
The only reason I have the 6416 is as a backup (I had to wean my wife
off of it). At this point, I really no longer need it. I should
exchange it for a non-DVR box and save some money...
I still don't understand why you don't let Myth control the DCT box
all the time. I am struggling to see the value in what you are trying
If you could help us understand, perhaps we could assist.
