On Demand and search function is now working. Did they update something? I checked the navigator software screen and it still says 132. Did any other fixtures we have been asking for been added?

ROGERS, please bring back previous features of the PVR (prior to Navigtr).

 

1.  While watching a recorded PVR program and you press "Info" for information of the recorded show being watched, the show stops and goes back to the menu.  Before you could see the recorded info while watching.  Rogers, please change back to the way it was.

 

2.  Show info text.  Long show info text gets cutoff.  The old system would scroll through the paragraph.  Rogers, please change back.

 

3.  While watching recorded shows, when you press the green "list" button, the show stops and you cannot hear the audio.

The previous system would play the show.  Rogers, please change back.

There are so many usability issues with this guide. I have a hard time believing this was user tested, and by user I mean someone who isn't an engineer. To start: 1) the list of programs now mashes recorded programs together with scheduled. It's impossible to tell what's recorded or scheduled unless you click on each one. 2) if there are two episodes of a show on one day, no way to tell which is first. 3) the "favourites" button turns your default guide button to favourites. You have to scroll through and change your view. How about you keep the buttons/commands separate? Rogers has essentially taken a decent guide and made it utterly useless. I'm a strong user if technology. This isn't an issue with ciping with change, rather having to deal with terrible UX.

Our 2 year bundle is coming to an end this month, so I was talking to Rogers tonight about a new deal (no waiting on hold on Saturday night!) and the rep said there is supposed to be a Navigatr update coming in "the next couple of weeks". How much truth there is in this statement, I don't know, but you can always live in hope!

The only way I will keep the cable tv service is if I upgrade to a Nextbox 3 from our current Nextbox 2. Can anyone tell me the difference for Navigatr in performance/storage/speed I might expect to see if I upgrade? Thanks.

That next couple of weeks has been coming now for about 2 months. They are frustrated and thats all they got.

Hello @Beelzebot,

There is a MASSIVE difference in speed between the NextBox 2 and NextBox 3 - in my experience, the newer box does not suffer the excessive lag when navigating the recorded items list or changing channels (or even scrolling down the guide) that the older box does. 

 

Be be aware that some people are experiencing lag even with the newer box - resolved by a quick reboot (I am not seeing this problem).

The major changes between NB3 and NB2: 1TB storage vs 500MB, 8 tuners vs 2 and NB3 has about 4x faster response time.
