Well I changed to Bell Fibe TV/Home Phone/Internet (300/50 unlimited) because they offered me a deal and I was getting fed up with all the cables running everywhere. With Bell I have a 4K PVR and wireless HD receivers in the bedroom(s). I was hoping to promote my TV to a 2016 LG OLED 55" 3D model but couldn't raise the money unfortunately. So am still stuck with an LG 47LW5700 3D HD TV, but have 4K everything else including my Oppo UDP203 Blu-Ray Player. LG have stopped making 3D models to my great chagrin but am hoping they relent soon. If they don't I'll just have to bite the bullet and relinquish my 3D aspirations. I have bought, but not employed yet, as they would be wasted, high-speed HDMI cables and a much better quality TOSlink cable. I think that booming effect I get when there's no signal going through the TV is the TV's fault actually.. Time only will tell when I finally get my wish and go totally 4K.
I used to have no problems raising money for anything but have forgotten how different things are when one is living on a fixed income - my pension - with prices rising everywhere.
hmm, the following page seems to intimate that the 4K has twice the HD recording capacity...
One way to confirm would be for someone with a 4K PVR to go into the diagnostics and see the size of the iHDD.
1) Press and hold the Exit key for two seconds until the power LED flashes on the front panel of the PVR
2) In quick succession, press the down arrow button twice, then press the 2 button. This will get you into the diagnostics section
Scroll down to HDD Info - my 9865 shows 931 GB.
Hello @57 & @Jyaneko
Unfortunately the 4K PVR box only has " Capacity 931GB" storage which is 1TB. Shows that on both the 4K PVR boxes I have.
Twice the space means the 4K PVR box compresses the movies and shows that u record to a small factor to record more later on.
@Meowmix : Just as an FYI, the 9865 has also had "media shrink" firmware since late in 2014, allowing for about 60% more capacity in the HDD.
It's always useful to check these things as the Rogers data is often incorrect or out of date.
Due to the fact that Rogers Hardware page listed twice the recording ability, people thought the 4K PVR had a 2TB iHDD. The CAV10455 has numerous options and could possibly be equipped as such, but it appears that Rogers ordered the 1TB version. I suspect the Rogers hardware comparison page is simply incorrect.
From the following page: http://www.rogers.com/consumer/tv/4k *Full Details link near the bottom, provides a popup which states for 4K:
90-hours storage capacity estimate is based on an average broadcast bitrate of 20Mbps saving to a 1 terabyte drive. Your experinece may vary.
Here's the link to Technicolor, which I thought previously mentioned a 2TB iHDD option, however, their specs are now more general in nature...
Rogers did order the 8 demodulator version, which is good. Note that it mentions "HEVC compression".
