Thank you for your patience throughout the ordeal, and I appreciate your detailed post in the Rogers Community Forums!
We certainly value your long term loyalty and would like to turn your recent experience around. We can run diagnostics to isolate speed issues and look into expediting the Senior Tech service call for you.
When is ignite going to work properly?
2 weeks later, still not working properly. Good many times should we restart the modem, installed pods - didn’t help. Lips are off can’t watch anything live or 4K, freezing issues and lagging even after installing pods and a senior tech visit. Just want to switch back to to cable, at this point it doesn’t seem like the services are EVER going to work the way I was told they would and paying for.
@Wheresismytv When the Senior Tech was at your home, what did they say was/was not working and what do they need to investigate further?
Regarding lips being out of sync, this has been an issue for some for a while now. Please try the following: go into "Settings > Device Settings > Audio > HDMI Audio Output" and change the setting to "Stereo" and then back to "Auto Detect". Does that get audio and video back in sync again? For a demonstration, check out this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nJxudzXAIw
As for your picture freezing, Ignite TV is a streaming service and the underlying technologies were designed to recover from small network errors in such a way that you should not even notice them... which points to this likely being a software-related issue on the set-top box itself; something that causes it to periodically stop processing video segments from time to time even though it likely received them successfully over the network.
We have had the exact same issues. I switch based on the promise of better connections an easier to use. I try to watch sports and all it keeps doing is stopping and starting. I had better reception using cable
All the issues that have been noted in previous post happen to our account as well
I have had 1 unit crash and a tech replaced it
I have had a tech out to survey the house and he added a pod but stated the wifi is strong. I am currently running 500 wifi from rogers. Although this does not give me 500 but it works. I was told this would work on a lesser speed but I highly doubt it.
So over all very disappointed with the service . Been on for 3 months and no resolutions.
cancelling it a second time after 48 hours. Again.
The positive: marked progress with features getting closer to Bell.
The new Ignite TV is poor- the flat, key-less middle portion requiring 9.3 lbs psi (measured, yes that much), whereas the rest of the buttons need barely 1. the central buttons, Arrows, left Right etc back, have been placed under a thick membrane, presumably to reduce greasy fingerprint issues. Only explanation as it makes no sense. "This remote is garbage, Sorry sir" said the technician. Both 4k PVRs, two remotes.
No FFWD 30s option. 6 clicks to bypass commercials with Bell and other providers. Not Ignite TV. You need to spend time scrolling Fwd, missing the marc, going back then back to program resume. the absence of a 30s ff
Image- on par, maybe marginally better than Bell's 4k PVR (barely if perceptible on some channels, with Bell superior on others such as CBC/CNN) which i am running in parallel. Definitely more Ignite TV pixelation for live sports channels than Fibe TV.
Remote Voice control does not work or recognize voice properly. TSN gave me 15 variations of GSN GSM and all sort of odd things...
I could perhaps add the 1 hr cancellation bumping around and 30 min waiting for callbacks that never occurred. So 7+ hours in 48 hours (7 PM 6 nov to 7 PM 8 nov), and I am done. Other responsibilities tie up my time as well, do not have time to wait forever on chat to ensure having one account for everything.
Overall? Promising, quite a lot, but meanwhile I stick with the Bell Fibe and its 500$ higher annual rate..

You need to punch in a "secret" key sequence to enable this: Press the Exit button three times, then "0 0 3 0"
Simple 30 fast forward :
1) Press the voice button and say "fast foward 30 seconds"
2) press the page up button once
Or even better: press the voice button and say " fast forward 3 minutes"
Easy a 1.2.3
Yes. I got 3 Minutes - Not found. 30 Seconds- Not found. It got it once out of 5 tries.
I also discovered that I cannot play IgnoTV on the App- it keeps asking for a location. Hmmm, and yet Bell Fibe does not..I could be in Congo and get to watch my recordings without the Location Settings..
@Belisarius I don't know what you're seeing. The Ignite TV Xi6 set-top box has two modes (that I know of) when you press the "Pg Up" button. By default, it skips ahead 5 minutes. However, if you punch in:
Exit Exit Exit 0 0 3 0
it will cause "Pg Up" to skip ahead 30 seconds instead. The setting is internal to the set-top-box and you have to change the setting on each set-top box individually. Sometimes, a software update may cause the Xi6 to lose this setting. However, the "30 second skip" has stuck on all of my STB's since I changed it back in May.
