What HD converter to get

My free extra DVR deal with TW is about gone. I plan to just go back to an HD converter box. I need HDMI, 3D capability, and both Optical Digital and RCA Digital outputs. Anyone have a suggestion for their newer and better HD boxes?

Newer Samsung and Cisco boxes are 3D capable, but only ESPN 3D requires a special HD box, since it is MPEG-4. 3D VOD is MPEG-2 and should work on a normal HD box with HDMI. I believe they will give you a SA 4250/4240HDC, but you could get a Cisco or Samsung box if you are lucky.

All "SA" STBs are Cisco boxes. Cisco=SA.
