Cable madness (Digital, Signal)
As you all know Rogers recently made or forced everyone to switch and use digital tuner and/or box. I was happy with my old regular plan but forced means forced I guess.
I have 3 TVs in the house. I got two small Cisco digital tuners and one box (1840) which Rogers offered to me for being a long time customer. First obvious thing was audio output was lower on both box and tuner, even the tech acknowledged that as it was obvious right after the install but that's not a big deal really.
Now my problems starts...
Not immediately but a week or so later I started getting pixelation, I call them up and they say tech will visit to check. He came I told him the pixelation problem didn't start right after but later. He did mention that between the street box and demarc there is some signal loss but that would require other work order and to see how interior fix goes. He went ahead and installed a new splitter/amp and even changed a couple of connectors (end of cables). We checked the diagnostic screen, the numbers looked nice and he left.
Fast forward another 2 weeks, the 1840 box keeps rebooting itself, at first I thought some crummy software update not going through. The diagnostic screen numbers seemed fine. I call them again. Tech support suggests I go to a store and swap the box. I go in they give me 940 and I come home.
Now some channels (86, 84, etc.) don't work - with the not available message like in the FAQ here - and the levels are off for those channels and to top it off for the first time one of the Cisco tuners was showing service not available, for a few minutes.
I called them again but I can't keep doing this....thoughts? Thanks
