I recently got Nextbox 9865 HD and trying to locate a comprehensive user manual for this particular box. Rogers did not include any manual with this box so i turned to Cisco web site. A search for 9865 box only shows a satellite version of receiver with 6 tuners. There is no documentation on Cisco web-site regarding cable box 9865 with 8 tuners.
Does anyone happen to find a user manual for Nextbox 3 (aka Cisco 9865HD) ?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Don't search for 9865....search for the 9800
The only box-specific documentation for the box is a Cisco QRG.
As for software, cisco has a general manual for the Vantage software that does a good job of documenting its functions. No docs for v4.0 yet, but there are for the previous versions, on whoch the Rogers guide is based
Thank you for the question.
We now have a Documentation for Nextbox 3.0 9865HD available online and you can download a copy of the Rogers Enhanced Guide from this link: Rogers Enhanced Guide
Hope this helps!
Thanks, Lurker. That was exactly what I was looking for. It is strange that Rogers would not include modified versions of those manuals with the Nextbox 3
That is even better. How hard was that for Rogers to include this guide with a new Nextbox?
Thanks. Just got the Next Box 3.0 and was looking for some documentation too. Another question. I hooked up my old HD box (SA 3250) to another TV but couldn't get sound. The connection was a DVI (box) to HDMI (TV) cable. Picture was good via input 3. However, I tried several different connections to get sound to no avail. In the end, I gave up and removed the DVI-HDMI connector and reverted back to the red-blue-green method + audio red and white. This works but I am baffled as to why I couldn't find a way to get sound using the DVI-HDMI route. Any suggestions ?
Generally speaking, DVI does not pass audio, although there are some video cards which do. When you say you have a DVI "box" to HDMI cable, are you saying the 3250 has DVI out or the 3250 is passing its output to a box of some kind? With DVI, you have to use a regular audio output and pass it to your TV's audio input. Audio outputs can be good old LR analogue, digital coax, optical, or HDMI.
