I am living in a new home which Rogers only installed one wall plate in for the coax. I took it upon myself to install a wall plate myself to an existing coax cable in the wall at a different location.
I have the nextbox in the new location and it has powered up fine and did the normal few reboots. As of right now after 40-50 minutes it still hasn't loaded anything up. The data light is blinking and the Passport Guide DVR screen seems to be stuck at a little over half on the completion bar.
Is this normal? Is it just a matter of waiting or do I have a possible connection problem?
Correct the working outlet I was setup by the technician and the new one by me. The lines were already ran I just connected the coax plate. I agree with you that it's most likely not connected back at the source. The problem is the source resides in another apartment.
If I decide I absolutely need cable in the other room I will call Rogers and schedule an appointment.
