Has it happened over a few days trying?
I know a while back we had that with... soemthing, cant remember what, on RoD.
Tried it the next day, and that episode was just fine. It was like their upload for it was corrupt or something.
Do you think it is worth it to call RIM to see if there is a setting that needs to be changed to fix the issue?
About 15 months ago i switched to rogers because i got tired of the bell satellite constantly losing signal and internet problems. For almost the last year. I have had similiar problems off an on when i watch rogers on demand. On demand would stop in a middle of a show and say an error occured. Also sometimes on demand wouldn't even load. The screen would just say an error occurred.I have a explorer 8642hd pvr. When it first started happening i would call the helpline, rogers was helpful in helping me get my on demand working again. They told me to reboot the pvr which i did, then they ran a systems check on everything on there end(which they said everything was good). Then they would monitor my system for the next 24 to 48 hrs to see if i needed a stronger signal(they said the signal i am getting is good). As i told rogers the first couple times i called was on demand would work fine for a few days or weeks then it would stop working. Weather was not a factor cause on demand quit on clear days as well. I only called a couple times cause i found out if i turn everything off and try the next day it worked fine. This happened to me again this thurs mid morning(i was frustrated) which i finally decided to call again after months of not calling. They told me the exact same thing again. Then the helpline lady said if i don't call about the problem they can't fix it. I told her i get the same answer each time so why should i call and waste my time to get the same answer. I am also frustrated with my internet which i will post on the internet forum. I like the on demand because i work nights and i can catch up on all the new shows. But I pay for my cable to work not to have these constant interruptions on demand. On a side note the menu/t.v. guide was blank for the last 2 weeks( not a big deal since i don't watch much t.v.) Any help would be appreciated. I am looking at getting a new service provider since i pay for the services to work not periodic frustrating interruptions
We are 'VIP' service customers and immensely frustrated with the terribly uneven availability of' Rogers on Demand'. For every 1-2 days of granted access, we experience 3-4 days in which the service refuses to sign on.
And no, it is not a technical issue with our digital box; that box has been unplugged and/or re-authorized dozens upon dozens of times.
And no, it is not a consistent problem with a particular digital box; we have replaced the box 3 times in 4 years.
And Rogers technical service? How many times must we be asked "Did you unplug the box?" Beyond that and an equally useless re-authorization signal, tech service offers no solutions.
By any benchmark of performance, service availability of less than 50% can only be considered an abject failure.
What will it take for Rogers to finally upgrade their infrastructure and provide world-class service?
How long will it take Rogers to upgrade its network in an apartment buidling like ours, built in the 70s and last cabled in the 80s?
While i dont access it daily.. i only have maybe 1/20 times RoD not work.. so it may varry from place to place, like you said based partialy on INFRASTRUCTURE.
Now, this can varry in what/who is responsible.
If its the area as a whole, yeah that is rogers. Even into the apartment and likely the main 'splitter' so to speak in the building is likely under rogers umbrella..
But alot of the stuff.. like the wiring in the apartment building, IF that is causing part of it.. usualy falls on the owner. (and most apartment owners dont want to pay for that).
The techs on the phone arent really techical people usualy they only go off scripts, which is why you always get the 'unplug' stuff.. Have you had an actual tech out to measure signals IN the building? This may promt some work to actualy be done in some way, if it ends up being an issue.
