I believe it does. I spoke to someone at Rogers which is in the management team and also spoke to someone at Technicolor and both said the Whole Home PVR won't be enabled on the current 4K box until the 4K PVR Box is out. Also take what normal reps say with a grain of salt. Some reps either don't know or aren't trained to answer all the questions.
Then the obvious follow-up is will the 4K PVR work with slave boxes (if that is the term) for that are non-4K for 4K content? If they do then I would think this requires the 4K box to transcode the signal from a 2160p file encoded with H.265 (akak HEVC) to MPEG-2 (or possible MPEG-4) file at 1080i or 720p?
I am guessing that the answer to that is no and the best case scenario is that you can only distribute 4K content to 4K boxes and you have to record a file in 1080i, 720p or 480p/i if you want to distribute to non-4K boxes.
Posting in DSLReports indicates that this is the box, which has the "latest MoCa Technology". That would seem to indicate MoCA 2.0 which would then be used for Whole Home purposes.
Edit: From the technicolor page: "Multi-room and multi-screen services: using MoCA 2.0 for client/server architecture".
That begs the question that has been stated above, connected to what?
According to Wikipedia MoCA 2.0 is backwards interoperable with MocA 1.1. So shouldn't a 4K non-PVR box be able to receive a signal from an older gen MoCA PVR?
