I think you may have been a little either miss informed or miss understoon what the Netbox is.
The name is kinda deceiving..
Really, all the netbox 2.0 is, is the Cisco regular HD box (non pvr).. with the new Interactive Program Guide.. which allows you to stream already recorded shows from your Cisco PVR.
It also allows you to do some sort of live TV stream from it to a tablet (not as sure on this part).
The 'net' part of it come, that your boxes are networked together, but they are networked together via the actual cable cable, and not a regular network... so no DNLA, etc.
From the Rogers site:
This device also Supports:
- DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) - allows home entertainment devices to share their content with each other across a home network
So I am pretty sure the box supports it via the ethernet connection, just not sure if Rogers has any of these features enabled.
The 8642 and 4642 have DLNA capabilities. However this software does not support it. It may be added at a later stage. Nextbox is as mentioend above just a rebranding of the exisiting PVRs.
The PVRs does not play any role in the streaming. You need to download the Rogers Live TV app for that. Once that is installed on your iPad or Android tablet, you are authorized to watch live TV (granted you are a Rogers customer)
Thanks.. i wasnt quite sure on the specifics for the tablet part.. it must be that you just need to own one of these boxes with the features enabled on your account.. to be able to do it? Guessing it uses part of your internet usage though (like how its great xbox has RoD now.. but it east your internet usage up.)
I havent seen anything on the rogers site anywhere about the box supporting DLNA.. mind sharing the link if you do have it?
While you are correct, (i havent checked myself) that the box itself may suppport DLNA, the firmware and software that rogers is using on/with the box itself, does not support it at this time.
