@LouB With Navigatr, my 8642HD's 'Settings -> TV Type' setting always defaults to "4:3 SDTV" after the box is rebooted, but it seems to have no negative effect on the actual displayed picture/picture quality.
Are you saying yours is displaying at 4:3 even on HD channels, all the time?!
And a reboot hasn't fixed it?
Yesterday (Fri Aug 21st) in Post #512 of the 'New Nextbox Nagivator' thread, member 'krap' posted that:
- his NB3 was wiped clear of recordings some time that same day
- the NB3 appeared to function properly afterwards
- a Rogers CSR authorized a PVR swap at the local Rogers store because it was likely to lose its recordings again in the future
- he was told "a lot of people" had similarly come in to that store that day to replace their boxes - indicating it wasn't an isolated incident.
- "apparently" there was an update to Navigatr that caused it and "some machines did not take"
In a follow-up post, krap clarified that this happened in Mississauga.
The CSR's alleged explanation is alarming and were it not for the supporting anecdote that the store had handled a lot of exchanges that day, a reader such as myself might be inclined to dismiss krap's drive wiping story as an isolated incident due to something like a corrupt
krap's already exchanged the NB3 for another -- but if there's someone else out there whose NB3 (or NB2) was "wiped" on Friday 21st, and you're still using it - can you please check what Navigatr software version and build date that PVR currently has?
- while watching tv, on the remote control (set to CBL), press [EXIT] for 4-5 seconds until a small icon on the front panel of the PVR starts flashing, then press [DOWN][DOWN]
- on the diagnostic page that opens, look at the 3rd line from the top of the screen and report back the Firmware Version, Date (mine, not updated since July 28th reports: "220.127.116.11 Tue Jun 16 2015, 11:20:30 PM GMT")
- press [EXIT] to exit the Diagnostics screens.
@billmcintyre @VBDubGirl -- the method I gave requires fewer buton presses start to finish and provides additional info - the Firmwate Date. It's also quicker to access (6 secs vs 9 secs according to my timer) due to not having to wait for multiple menus to load.
Diagnostics: [EXIT, held][DOWN][DOWN] then [EXIT] to return to what you were watching
Settings: [SETTINGS][UP][OK][DOWN] then [EXIT][EXIT] to "" "".
spoke with someone at rogers recently who indicated my next box 2 which I own is out of warranty so they cannot replace it, are they nuts the box is fine they uploaded the faulty software that disabled it - not me - sabotage !!
anyway issues still abound and no better than when I left for 10 days vacation recently
now a full month of essentially bad cable tv - and no resolution in sight - I do not not think we should pay for this
From you earlier msgs, it looks like your problems started a month ago with your programs got wiped
as part of the JULY 28 Navikrap launch.
Rogers persons, you know the right thing to do.
