I'm with you on how SLOOOOOOW the 8642 has become with the Navigatr software.
Quite a while ago, I had it - then called Rogers to give SARA back to me.
Life was good for quite a while.
About 3 weeks ago they simply decided to force Navigatr on me.
The LAG is horrendous - and makes me absolutely HATE interacting with the UI.
It is so painful to change channels, pull up the guide, scroll anything, make any selections.
You have to second-guess yourself - if you actually pressed the button or not, because the time-lag-delay messes with your mind !
Press, wait 4-7 seconds.....press, wait 4-7 seconds..... this is torture.
Hopefully the Xfinity platform will be worth it, when it eventually comes, because watching TV with the 8642+Navigatr combo is a maddening experience.
