A warning to all posters. Although Rogers DOES apparently have a sense of humour (after all what is Navigatr if not one of the biggest jokes in the world, and that joke about being proud to bring us an enhanced viewing experience and easier searches is an absolute howler too) apparently they do NOT understand sarcasm. Any sarcastic comments about how great it is and how the rollout should be speeded up are apparently being interpreted as sincere praise and a vote for Navigatr, and justification for the continued rollout and totally misleading advertising.
After all how else could you explain their totally risible claim that almost 4 customers approve of Navigatr to every one who disapproves. That is either an outright lie (or intentional manipulation of survey results) or Rogers has just inadvertently disclosed that for every one customer with a PVR there are almost 4 with only the set top box for Live & On Demand viewing. Unless you only use your PVR once or twice a week, or are on some mind altering unprescribed medication, how could a PVR user possibly approve of this amateurish attempt at software development with absolutely no quality control or real world testing done before rolling it out to customers who are expected to actually PAY for this garbage?
I would suggest Rogers need to take the total Cable portion of the monthly bills for EVERYONE with a PVR and Navigatr and multiply the amount by negative one, and continue this EVERY month until such time as EVERY bug reported in these forums is fixed. I'm sure that will make us all happy to be Rogers customers.
(sorry, forgot my own advice on sarcasm there).
I guess if you've had to reboot 6 times (b/c of UNRESPONSIVENESS) that would point away from the Power saving feature?
"I wonder if this sleep function is programmed wrong and is at the root of our problem?"
I AM positive the sleep function along with countless other aspects are programmed wrong!
I wonder if there are different "versions" (mistakes) relating to when it was "received" (Causing or not causing unresponsiveness)?
Mine came on December 18th and despite the ENORMOUSLY NEGATIVE IMPACT, and PERSONAL DEVASTATION it has and is causing me (PAIN & SUFFERING, etc.) it has been responding.
Is anyone able to test their closed captions to see if they work? My have stopped working recently and I'm wondering if it is a symptom of the last update. Thanks!

Sorry - I don't know anything about CC, but if it were me, I'd try replacing the HDMI with component (I read a post of yours earlier and you mentioned "delay" - (although I think it was text delay)
Using "delay" as the keyword though:
We "fixed" an audio delay by replacing the HDMI cable with RCA cables.
Perhaps someone here can complete this with which RCA cables (what colors) to use?
I could see all kinds of settings for CC but no way to turn them on or off? Very strange.
Has anyone figured out if you can disable this power saving feature ?
Reading through this forum I guess I can consider myself lucky. Have a basic HD Nextbox and a Nextbox 3 PVR both running Navigtr 2. Both updated cleanly and are running smoothly. My basic HD box is a bit laggy but is otherwise fine. My Nextbox 3 is smoother and problem free. My only complaint is the fast forward and rewind features when using On-demand ie Shomi, TMN is a bit buggy and there's only one speed. This feature was lost on Navigtr 1 and not fixed with the latest update. The feature works fine on pVR recording.
I wonder if many of the conversion and ongoing problems being experienced are caused by low strength weak signals. Just a thought.
although these issues do not seem to be affecting everyone, Rogers has confirmed with me that it is a software issue that is being worked on. Signal strength has been checked by them. Have now gone a full 24 hours without box being "unresponsive" , so I live in hope!
