i live in Delta and was 'lucky' enough to get a Pace Tahoe which i hooked up an external drive to. have been having problems with the Pace lately (as i'm sure most everyone is!), and wanted to switch to the Motorola 6416.
Delta Cable (Eastlink) said the manufacturer 'locked' the ports, so i phoned Motorola to ask why. they don't physically lock ports, and said it was up to the cable companies to supply the software to use it (eSATA).
after a lengthy wait on the phone with Eastlink, and then a weak explaination why they wont allow the port to be used (still not clear why, the young woman said it's just not available), i've given up!
i went into Future Shop to look at the Pace with the 1TB expander (i'm going into the Delta Cable office with a story i hope they take pity to! hehehe), with hope that it could be used.
the dude that helped me *said he heard a rumor* that Shaw was close to buying Delta Cable.... anyone know anything about it? i've also read speculation of a Shaw/Eastlink trade for cable companies (DC for Mountain).
thanks for letting me spew!
