yeah, what a waste of technology. And all those wonderful, HDCP free outputs. Onward and downward. If they were offering upgrades, they must have been to expensive at the time. I bought a 605, used, for $50.
yeah, that's my question - I took it off my account last year, so I'm not sure if they'd give me a swap/plus cash for an updated one. Is it technically "de-activated" when it comes off your account? Anyone tried? Otherwise - if someone needs if for parts, PM me and you can have it for shipping fees.
Upgrades are only available for equipment currently active on your account at this point (and yes, it would be considered "deactivated" once removed).
thanks - I would have asked first. I assume the price was ridiculously high considering these 5** series units were supposed to be upgradeable to MPEG4, which Shaw changed the game on if I remember correctly.
you won the lottery then. As I said, buying a 605 used for $50 (and I would have accepted no less, since the 605 had lots of outputs, just like its' cousin the 505) was less expensive than whatever they were offering, which may have been a 600. That just wasn't an acceptable swap. Isn't it funny that the same company could do such different things to it's customers...
