Picked one up at Oakville Place this afternoon.
I had called Cogeco a couple of months ago for something else and found out there is now a new PVR with a larger hard drive and ability to add an external drive, however I did not have time until today to pull the Moto for an exchange.
I was suprised the replacement wasn't a Moto, and a lot of reservation about this unknown brand, but I did a quick on-line search and found this thread, decided to gamble and get the Pace.
I plugged the unit in at 5pm, it started to count down from 9,999 and was down to 0 by about 5:30pm and shut off, I turned the unit back on, called Cogeco, waited 10 minutes on hold, and the agent activiated the box for me to start some additional download, perhaps the programming guide.
The indicator light turned off by about 6:15pm, so I turned the STB bak on, I can watch most programmings (no ON-Demand yet as I was told by the Cogeco agent) but there are no programing guide, which came on by about 30 minutes later.
However about 30 minutes after that the STB shut itself off, a "Boot" message was shown on the front display, then the STB shut off completely, then turned itself back on without loosing the channel I had been watching, but all the programming guide was lost again........
I'm hoping this is not a continuing problem, can't understand why the programming guide that was loaded then got wiped out!
