I am wondering if there is a large number of HARDWARE revisions of the newer boxes.
I hear alot of people compaining about freezing and rebooting.
But there are others (myself included) which do not have a single problem like that.
If it was JUST a bad software completely.. it SHOULD effect across the board, mostly.
But it could just be an issue with the software, and certain hardware revisions.. some it works fine.. and some it has problems...
Can there be damage to the tv when it turns tv off? after the sharp signal is sent??
This is a very disappointing product, and I'm shocked ROGERS haven't done anything to save its reputation, not even a public apology for releasing a failed product.
Rogers does not apologize. Nextbox has been an unmitigated disaster. Their D3 modems are terrible. They push forward software updates that cause nothing but problems. At the very best, you will receive a reply from Rogers that they are aware of the issues and are working on them, but more than likely they will try and blame your setup, or signal, or equipment - anything but themselves. It really is frustrating to continue to subscribe to their services!
I agree Pauly. It is actually called Nextbox, but with its performance, it should be called "lastbox" - as in the last box you would ever get from Rogers!
Gdkitty - you should not have to get used to poor performance, nor should you have to be patient! If Rogers advertised something, they need to deliver and the fact is that Rogers does not deliver what is advertised!
As far as a new 8 tuner PVR on the horizon, I will not hold my breath. As customers, we have too often got our hopes up with new products from Rogers only to be let down time and time again.
It's terrible they have been to my house to see for themselves. They didn't believe what I was telling them. They changed all equipment now worst then before.
Keep old equipment DO NOT UPGRADE IT SUCKS!! And Rogers does not care.
WILL BE SWITCHING TO BELL FIBE
