Any news on when the Remote TV manager app will support the 8642 boxes? After my 8300 boxes had problems, they were replaced with 8642 units, but naturally no one mentioned at the time that the new machines would have less functionality than the old boxes! I've called a few times, and get as useful an answer as the website "coming soon" notice. It's been over a year... and no end in sight!
Yes I was certainly disappointed after "upgrading" to the 8642 to discover that it can not be controlled by My Remote TV.
Really is about time Rogers caught up. Strongly agree with other post the COMING SOON is NOT an acceptable release date.
Why is Rogers' failure to deploy a working product not in the news?
It is a working product.. .while some peeople DO have some ongoing issue.. there are others (myself) who does NOT have the same issues. For me, its a working product. Maybe a few bugs or so.. but i could point out bugs in the old IPG as well.
They have released possibly an INCOMPLETE or BUGGED product.. but it is a working product.
I want my old PVR back. NEXT sucks. Too slow. Remote Manager coming soon, wait another 10 years for an updated feature from Rogers.
For the manager... who knows.. we've been promised it for a while 😛
But the blackbery.. i belevie even less!
I use a BB for work, as for email in that sense, most secure, monitored, etc.. i 100% agree with that usage.
But otherwise.. for apps, etc.. the BB BLOWS. They upgrade their OS with every new phone out... and the old devices often can not upgrade to that OS.
The app makers dont keep up, or have issues with keeping up with the OS changes.. very few apps work across multiple BB OS's which require them to re-write the app again.
I do have to admit this is where Apple and Android are overcomming the market in terms of app and support.
