Good to hear 🙂 and good to see some positive feedback on it.

Re: New IPG and Whole Home PVR!

Just wanted to jump in and mention that I am now getting the security channel on 988 in my condo building through the 8642.
In terms of the new IPG, it needs work, but I quite like it. It needs to be more stable, faster, and it needs some of the features of the old guide put back in, like the skip ahead on pre-recorded content. I'm sure Ted's Nerd Army will make it happen sooner than later. Besides, even with all these issues, Rogers still beats the pants off the other guys.

Interesting..

If you get a chance, would you be willing to ask your building super if their security channel is digital or analog?  As a digital one, would work through the 8642.

The notice posted in the lobby says digital. My building is 5 years old and this was added about 2 weeks ago.

It has to be digital to work with the 8642.   Alas my building hasn't yet installed a digital camera.

Interesting to see what Shaw Cable is offering in comparison to Rogers, both in terms of pricing and capabilities!

Something tells me that Rogers is not giving us our money's worth!

Looks like they are using a much more advance PVR, etc hardware wise .

 

unfortunately, shaw's coverage area, is very limited 😞 (pretty much anywhere that HAS cable thats not rogers, is shaw)
