Saturday past, tech called on his way over, confirming the 4k order(I was the first in town to get it). Confirmed that I had 4k TV, and that PVR was the 4k box, would replace old PVR, and be moved to 4k TV if it wasn't there already. I also had a wired STB upgraded to wireless. He also confirmed that I was aware that all recordings would go bye-bye, luckily, Mediaroom platform does save my scheduled recordings, which was nice(see more below).
He wasn't sure if there were any extra things to do, as I was the first in the region to get 4k. When he arrived, he came in with the 2 boxes, promptly de-registered the old boxes(once he saw both my network rack in the basement and media setup, he kinda knew that I knew what I was at), he told me I could handle the wired to wireless upstairs(done in less than 5 minutes). When I got downstairs, he already had the old box removed, and was hooking up the new PVR. He turned it on, and registered it, it started doing an update. We went upstairs to check the new box which was almost done. We went into the bedroom to reboot the other wireless box so it registered to the new PVR. On our way back downstairs, the new STB was sitting on the new welcome screen for newly activated STBs. When we got downstairs, the box was just rebooting after updating. As soon as it came back online, everything was working, a recording had already started that was scheduled. We verified that the 4k was coming through, and he was out the door, all in under 30 minutes. Haven't had a hiccup since. I shall soon be heading downstairs to watch the Raptors game in 4k.
