SD PVR model numbers

Someone I know is looking to replace a dying SD box with an SD PVR. What are the model numbers of the SD PVRs that have been offered by Rogers in the past? I know of the SA8000 and SA8300, were there others?

 

I've found a few on Kijiji/Craigslist, but are Rogers Plus stores allowed to sell returned rental SD (PVR) boxes since they aren't going to be rented out again?

 

Thank you.

SA8000 and SA8300 are the only 2 I remember. I don't think Rogers stores sell them, at least I haven't seen them sell them.

That said there is no reason why you couldn't get an HD pvr and just not use the HD capabilities.

In the short term for someone without an HDTV and doesn't plan to buy one within the next year its more economical to buy a used SD PVR outright (they go for under $175) than pay a perpetual $25 rental fee.

Agreed.. I was just stating that there is no reason an HD one wouldn't do the job. (yes monitary reasons still apply)

Re: SD PVR model numbers

Chris is right, there were only 8000 and 8300 SD pvrs available through Rogers.  

I would advise not to purchase a 8000 SD as they generally suck.  Go with the 8300 or an 8300hd, if you can find a used one that works well.
