However I received no picture or sound. Apr 6th, 2012 12:53 amThe Cisco pvr is dreadfully unreliable. I also found that it was much more responsive than the Nextbox 2. The docsis 3 modem is for iptv which is coming down the road. This means the product has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to meet manufacturer specifications and is in excellent condition.
That seems to work for me. Just a guess here, I really need to see the diagnostic screen to see how many actually tunners it has. Just a guess here, I really need to see the diagnostic screen to see how many actually tunners it has. Similar to a cable modem but unlike a 9watt cable modem these things consume 60watts 24×7. I had to swap out the box this morning with a new one as the only way to watch a netflix was to unplug the nextbox so the sound would not double up.
I'd never pay full price for sure. Some of them make loud noises so make sure you put your ear right up to it before the tech leaves so they don't give you a shitter. Like I said, the diagnostic screen will tell you exactly how many tuners it has and the signals levels for each tuner. The docsis tunner might be pulling in 6 streams and hence the ability to record 8 programs combine with the other two tunners. We want to at least look at the specs and get a few opinions before making a decision - which may involve switching carriers entirely.
Anyone who is told that they will be charged again, ask to be escalated to a manager, and can even refer to this post and what Nicholas said. In one case it did a double recording - but I'm not complaining. There is a disconnect somewhere. Teo Harald Says: We just discovered a problem with the Nextbox 3. I tried tweeting Rogershelps and no response. If all three clear, then it's safe to buy. Every time I threaten to change the box I get crys from my family because there is no way to transfer unwatched programming to the replacement box.
If you are buying, you must call in to Rogers with the serial number to confirm it can be activated. I've purchased non-pvr boxes without issue. My mom sometimes hits the record button by mistake. So I suspect that the NextBox 3. Sometimes I verify, in the morning, that a program is scheduled to record that evening.
My Nextbox 2 experience had been close to horrible, multiple service calls, system failure etc…so I thought a switch to version 3 might help. I see that there are a bunch of used cable boxes for sale in kijiji. How could I pass that up? But that's not the case here. Other times, it gives a message near the last few minutes of a 2 hour recorded show, that the very show I'm watching 'isn't available' or 'not enough resources'. For example, someone who had rented a cable box fails to return it, thus it gets blacklisted? I check the scheduled recordings, and it is in the queue for next week. You should try on Wednesday; apparently they get new promotions each month and it's better to call at the beginning of the month. Mind you i've probably just jinxed it all.
I carefully check for conflicts so has nothing to do with that. As part of my migration of phone and Internet services to Rogers, I got an almost free as part of the deal. If not, you might have to go through the process again. Well in principal it works well and in fact it worked well for me until I got the Nextbox 3. I carefully check for conflicts so has nothing to do with that. Mine is set to delete in 14 days or until I delete.
When I put the nextbox 2 on. Rogers get your act together!! I remember in the past, they tried to do it to me, with the 2. Now the entire memory is full and we need to clear some space to record the Rugby World Cup. Yes, this means there's a new firmware that allows this functionality. I will install once I get home and let you know the outcome.
I will try and get technical info on the 9865 just to satisfy my curiosity. If it isn't eligible for activation, you put the owner on the phone and they will deactivate it, and then when you get home you can activate it on your account. Feb 19th, 2012 3:10 pmNoticed a similar ad and found this post while trying to find more information. Does anyone know how to enable freeze-frame on the Rogers Nextbox 3. I have the exact same problem.
But everything is much faster. Couldn't access recorded programs and a vast number of channels were completely inaccessible. One box is doing okay currently and the other is still terrible with daily reboots. Then the whole system went wonky once again. Use the arrow keys to scroll around.
