Comcast Xfinity HD uDTA Pace DC60Xu Unboxing and Setup Instructions

Today I picked up two Comcast Xfinity uDTA (HD Digital Transport Adapters). These are the latest DTA's from Comcast that allow you to view HDTV using a tiny cable box as opposed to the huge boxes. They also have the advantage of being much less expensive to rent than the settop boxes. In my area they are easily exchanged for the for the original Thompson DTA's (http://blog.trebacz.com/2010/03/comcast-dta-digital-transport-adapter.html) from a couple years ago.
Advantages of Comcast Xfinity HD DTA:
Small compact sizeHDMI output or standard cable TVRF remote option (no line of site needed)Same monthly rental as standard definition DTA's Disadvantages of Xfinity HD uDTA: No menu system (or extremely limited)No on-demand programmingNo channel favorites Below is the unboxing process and what it took to hook it all up.
