Hello --- I just  replaced my  dvr with the Cisco 9865 HDC --- 

I just found out that it has 6 tuners in it --- my old one just has 2 --- 

 

Is there anyplace where I can download a pdf version of the manual? 

 

Also --- what does the RJ-45 jack (intenert/ethernect) connection for? 

 

Thanks

    Yes,

     

    You have one of the best boxes out there!  6-tuners are the best.  Sadly though, the six-tuner boxes are rare.  They are from the old TWC regime before the merger.  Local tech said that he is only allowed to have two- six-tuner boxes on his truck at a time.  That was a year ago.

     

     Spectrum is only giving out the four-tuner World Boxes (No Clock) or the 2-tuner clock boxes.  They have download manuals for them, but not for the Cisco 9865.  They should add them to this list:

    The expansion ports are disabled, and you can't do anything with them.

    Yeah all the USB and ethernet ports are disabled so you can't add external drives or connect it to your network. All the user controllable device settings and controls will be dependant on which software guide the box is running:

    I can confirm the field techs in my area are only carrying the world boxes. The only way to get a non world box or a 6 tuner DVR is going to a Spectrum retail store.
