Will the DTA50's be compatible with the new crtc mandated pick & pay coming out next year?

The crtc mandated pick and pay by next year, will the dta50s be compatible with this type of package or not?

Good question.  I would say, only to an extent maybe?

The DTA.. only gives you the equivelent of BASIC cable... 1-60, right?
Even if you have a package which gives you MORE channels, you cant access them, their channel number may be higher than the DTA allows.

 

So the pick/pay would be the same..  IF the channel falls in the basic range, then sure.  If not, then no?

 

(not saying it SHOULD be that way.. just likely how i THINK it would be based on how things work)

 

 I mean.. the mandate only says you can CHOOSE to choose what channels you pick/get... not necessarily WHAT is needed to access them.

There exists a Cisco DTA170HD which Rogers does not have at this time which tunes the higher channels. Also, when you go to the URC Rogers Remote Support site http://www.urcsupport.com/index.php?mso_id=225 you see a new remote we haven't seen before. I'm sure the DTA50 is being discontinued because there's something new in the pipeline.

Why do you need luck? The parcel is sitting there waiting for you so all you have to do is pick it up! I have done this many times with UPS, Purolator, and FedEx!
