Re: 4K PVR--Release Date??

Hello @pmcsplaza

If i remember correctly the 4K box never got a user guide even when I got the new sealed one. So we shall see if this one gets it.

I am still getting it no matter what anyways. Just wish they could release the date and not say "Sign up for more information"

Is the regular 4K Box also from Technicolor? I'm just hoping this 4K PVR actually works on all the Samsung KS Model Series TVs that's why I ask

Hello @SnoopDoggLA

Yes it is. Technicolour bought Cisco and now works with Rogers. All 4K boxes and 4K boxes as said above in my post come from them.

Darn that scares me. I'm starting to lose hope this 4K PVR will actually work with my TV now

Hello @SnoopDoggLA

I think it will. They won't be releasing it for a while ( November I heard) so i guess they are taking the time to make the changes. Technicolour only provides the boxes to them. Software all comes from Rogers.

I changed mine for today instead of tomorrow. I'll let everyone know how the box is and some reviews!

Hey guys!

So the tech is here and the box is slimmer but longer. It's a Technicolour box. Looks really nice!. Some colors as the 4K box. The PVR works great So far!. Will give more details once I have had it for a couple of days.
