Re: New IPG and Whole Home PVR!

The trouble with universal remotes is there eventually always is one or more keys on the original remote that don't have any corresponding key or combo of keys on the universal one.

Re: New IPG and Whole Home PVR!

Since i can not edit my last post ill say it here.

I just got my invoice for Cable & this is what i am getting charged for.

Feb 27 - Mar 26
Digital VIP Cable : 63.99
Digital Terminal Rental: 24.99
NextBox HD Terminal Rental: 12.95
Digital Services Fee: 2.99

So how come it shows my HD box as the Nextbox but my 8642 HD PVR it says "Digital Terminal Rental"

I got both boxes Sept 2011. This makes no sense unless they call the 4642 HD Boxes Nextbox & not the HD PVR ones.

Re: New IPG and Whole Home PVR!

Ever since the upgrade on my 8642HD I am getting a black screen on some channels that work fine on my 8300. I called tech support and he got me to do a reboot (which I did before I called) and after that didn't work, he booked me an appointment for next week for a tech to check it out.

 

Did anyone else have this issue?

The QSG (Quick Start Guide), Call Display and service channels that were available on the 8300HD are not available on the 8642HD as has been stated earlier in this thread and Rogers have not stated whether or not they ever will be.   Also the music channels whilst still working for audio are blacked out visually only on the 8642HD since the latest firmware update.

I've noticed that the box no longer displays the data (HD, 1080i etc. etc.) on it's display panel that it used to before the firmware upgrade.

Sorry I misunderstood you. I guess you do need a technician to visit then.

Yes i noticed this as well. On my 8624 HD PVR It does not show ( HD , 1080i ) i am guessing they deactivated that with the new software.

@Meow

Maybe they just havent fully updated the 'listings' for both of them as 'netboxes'.  As long as you have the right hardware, that they are updated, working, and paying the right price, thats the important thing, right? 🙂

 

I did notice too, like you guys have said, the lack of the display on the front.. it does definately still switch modes.. just doesnt show it on the display... it was probably confusing too many people or something 😛
