No update here either..
Allthough i did not reboot the box.. i will be doing that once i get home.
I am going to give it till the end of the week till i call.
Reading back over all the 'documentation' on it... its one of those things that is not guaranteed right away, but will happen.
'updates will be going out between now and feb 27th'
'you will be able to call to set up apointment starting feb 7th'
Doesnt mean the service WILL be out by then 😛
Called rogers, and they give a canned response that there services are currently being upgraded, and that support services are not available at this time, please call back later today.
I hope this means that they are busy preparing the update push, and just don't want to make any other account changes when dealing with this process.
Lets hope the update is coming 'soon'.
Why do so many people want an upgrade so soon?
I'd rather wait another month if it means most of the bugs can be ironed out!
No sense getting a rushed job that does more damage than good ... in IT Land, faster coding does not mean better!!!
While the new one is a bit small, people with bad eyesight might have problems seeing it.. on the big screens, shouldnt be as much of an issue.. and the HD makes it SOOO much clearer. (i have it on my regular HD box).
In the end.. im hoping the new IPG adds the features like the call display and access from the mobile app, that the 8300 already had.. which were features that i would regularily use.
As well, my wife has complained for ages, that she would love a feature like the whole home PVR.. and it being available will make her happy, which makes my life easier 😛
Update: Ottawa is now listed as the 9th for the new IPG release.
And I've also found out, that:
The Whole Home PVR with Rogers on Demand Services. Requires an appropriete speed+bundled Rogers Internet Service on your account to function.
