Does the free Cisco box output BTSC stereo RF, or just mono?
I've searched, and even the Cisco data sheet doesn't mention mono or stereo, but one random web post suggests mono.
You mentioned that you purchased a Scientific Atlanta set top box for about $40.
Could you mention a store that might sell them.
Does the set top box that Rogers supplies, I believe it is the Cisco DTA 50, do the same as a digital to analog converter such as the HomeWorx ATSC Digital Converter Box (HW100STB)?
try the source... by circuit city, or try Wal mart, future shop, and even best buy. They often go on sale for 40-50 bucks. I was lucky to buy the last 2 from the Source... by circuit city by my house. even when its not on sale its generally $10-20 more, still worth it, you OWN them, never have to pay additional for rent.
The Homeworx is probaly for over the air antenna signals, where the rogers one is for your cable account, they not interchangable, rogers uses Cisco/Scientific atlantic equipment and they must be registered with csr
I would wait this out a bit. I don't think annalog will go dead at all.
It's just Rogers trying to get more money saying this big lie "you have to switch over to digital"
