Eligibilty & Compatibility
You got my excited @RogersDarrell
And then I saw bottom line "Android 5.0 Lollipop" not supported. x__x oh boy.
I need to go find my old Note 2 for this lol
Very nice though! 😄
Glad to hear more improvement and support been added on for channels!
Yes - when will Android 5.0 Lollipop be supported? This becomes especially important since there is still no word on when we will be able to control our TV and PVR via a computer through the Rogers Website - wherever it might be located!
So what's the deal with compatibility with Android Lollipop? Is there a target date or something that we can look forward to? All new Androird devices come with Lollipop loaded and most existing devices have upgraded by now (since it's been out for months).
Can someone from Rogers finally comment on this?
Lack of Lollipop support is disappointing, but pathetic state of Rogers tech support is downright discusting. Here is my today's experience:
Loaded RAPTV Home edition onto Nexus 7 tablet
Got wrong user id/password error
Phoned Rogers. Took me 1.5 hours in the following sequence:
Transfered to wireless support
Transfered to wireless texpert totally amaized as to why I was transfered to him. Based on his previous experience he said I should have been transfered to Anyplace TV technical support
Waited for 30 minutes while he was searching his system for the extention number for it. Then music (no explanation)
Hold (out of curiosity really)
Loyalty department answered!!! Probably a good call, as I am ready to cancel my 5 (FIVE!) Rogers services.
Immediately got Lollipop explanation (nice lady by the name Jannet told me that she knew the answer because she handled the same problem 3 times in the last 2 days. Could not tell me why first line customer support has no explanation of the problem in their knowledge base, and no mention in FAQ either. No availability date that she knows of.
Overall experience: FRUSTRATED
Prediction of the further developments: Lollipop support will come when the next version of Android becomes a standard for all new tablets.
