On December 15, 2015, I let everyone know that we had started to roll out the updated Navigatr guide. Take a look here for that post.
As we continue to roll out the update, customers will be notified ahead of time that they will be getting the new software.
If you have received the updated Navigatr software (i.e. since December 15, 2015) and would like to ask a question and/or share your findings/learnings, please do so in THIS THREAD.
Thanks very much for keeping the community a pleasant place to be!
Turned on THE PVR this morning and it went into REBOOT!
First reboot of the day, did this 7 times yesterday.
When this reboot copleted we got the WELCOME TO YOUR NEW NAVIGATR screen!
Pushed through all the propaganda about the second coming of NAVIGATR, and discovered
all our recordings had been erased! Many hours all lost!
Will test PVR today and see if has stopped continually rebooting.
Well a further development to my previous posting!
My PVR functioned for 30 minutes, and rebooted.
This time it took off to reboot heaven!
It never returned, After trying all the known tricks to
Bring it back to life, I decided it was time to visit the local
They were very efficient and placed me in the line up for
Attention. There were 4 others in line clutching NB3s, all had
I asked the guy who served me if they had many returns, and he
Raised his eyes in a way that conveyed everything
He confirmed that things are going to happen in January.
I never received any warnings that anything was about happen,
Just the usual total silence from Rogers.
The replacement box has functioned for about 30 min so far.
Just to confirm we lost everything, back down to zero recordings.
so i just got the jan 2016 roll out of navigator and find some serious inconvienances...
i liked it when i pressed guide or favs and got either guide or favs depending on the button AND when i pressed it again (either guide or favs) I got the other one. in other words i could toggle to guide or favs by simply pressing a second time on the button.
now favs is the defaults in either guide or favs and to get to something else i have to go to C button and select filter channel option to get a 1 time choice of subscribed. once i get back to the tv screen, guide shows subscribed. but if u dare go to favs again, then guide the guide screen redefaults to the fav from subscribed arrgh
I discovered a kludge to the fav/subscribe channels view problem! That is to not use the fav button at all. Just set your guide to subscribe and then when ever u use guide, subscribe chs will come up AND if u press guide again u get your fav chs. so u can toggle back and forth between subscribe and fav channels using guide button.
BUT if u ever touch the fav button again, the ability to toggle in guide diasppears.... and will need to be reset
Ill be making an instructional video on this shortly 8>)
and just as I was settling in to living with the new UI, and watching a recorded program, all remote controls except TV power freeze. Nada, nothing, no buttons have any effect, (and I have 2 remotes and neither have any effect....). when the recording ends the picture freezes....
Have to turn cable box off by hand using power button, no effect, have to unplug for a reboot...
and now the reboot has fixed the problem with the guide toggle and the fav toggle, as far as I can tell...
and now the 2am software update and the guide/fav toggle is no longer there in either guide or fav, and both default to fav. this is my this is my last post on the topic. goodbye
Navigator is now installed. Now I can only power up the box by rebooting it. Also the last 2 nights I have set it to tape shows and both nights it has recorded one on NBC and continued to tape this channel until until someone has rebooted the system in the morning. During this time it has NOT recorded any other programs. Anyone else having this issue? Tonight I won't be taping shows on NBC. These are only the most serious issues, there are too many to list
The guide marks the shows I have set up to record with red dots as it should. Both times I had 2 or 3 shows set to tape on the same channel one after the other. It tapes as 8+ hours of the first show.
