This message is for anyone that can explain the lack of stock anywhere for new 4642HD boxes. I work for a local retailer and we have had a back order on units since April of this year. I know Best Buy, Rogers stocks, etc all don't have new units. Only have refurb units for rent to own.
No one seems to know why this is happening. Is this possible a new box is coming out?
Any info is appricated.
The 8642 is the old NB2 PVR... which i 100% agree generally should be replaced with NB3 in most cases.
They are talking about the 4642 though.. the regular HD box.
MY hopes, is that there will be a NEWER regular HD box being released soon
(nb3 era equiv one)
BUT at least at this time, these are still necessary for the WHOLE HOME setups, etc.
@Meowmix this is a stock issue, I don't need one for myself. I am more so asking fellow members here as "I work for a local retailer" that hasn't been able to get stock from supplier since April of this year, Best Buy, Rogers stores, etc all show no stock.
Just odd that this is still an issue now in June. I'd ask our Rogers rep but the last person to show there face as the rep no longer works for Rogers. As for 4K units, they cannot be bought only rented and only Rogers does renting of units.
As for the 4K box, we don't want to open that can of worms on issues and lack of channels lol.
