HD set top boxes way too big

Message 1 of 3
I picked up 5 ea. Motorola 7100 P1 set top boxes. these things are enormous. I want the 7100-P2 boxes. How do I do this and why cant anyone at Verizon answer this simple question? All I want is a smaller Set top box that handles HD service - that is all. That's all I want - not to hard. Can anyone answer.

I don't beleive the P2 boxes are much smaller. For small HD box, Quantum is the way to go.

VMS is about the same size as STB, but IPCs are quite small. Around the size of the digital adapters.

The P1's are the older silver boxes. The P2's are the newer black ones. The P2's are taller then the P1's, but are not as wide, but the difference in size between the 2 isn't that much. Are the P1's all that they had in stock to give you?
