Cogeco's Atlantic Broadband subsidiary uses the T6 model, which is similar to the Roamio. They charge a $10 upgrade fee per month for TiVo Service in addition to the regular DVR price. TiVo Minis are $9.99 per month for additional TVs.
Must of missed your last post so thanks for the reply. Cogeco does allow for external Motorola boxes, so I would hope that this policy would extend to their newer product line when they release. At least that is the hope.

The MPEG-4 shift in Augusta follows other technology decisions made by cable operators that have impacted TiVo. The use of switched digital video by operators such as Time Warner Cable, for example, require that TiVo boxes with CableCARDs to also be paired with separate Tuning Adapters to ensure that they can access channels in an MSO’s switched tier. But that kluge may be fleeting, as TiVo has recently developed an “embedded” way of supporting cable SDV without a Tuning Adapter that relies on updated client software and some additional work at the cable operator's headend. TiVo originally developed that for BlueRidge Communications, and plans to do the same for Cogeco of Canada.

Apparently Cogeco is about to announce something to do with TiVo. Probably TiVo licensed pvr/tuners.
Does anyone have additional information?
This could be fantastic for Cogeco because their present software/hardware is extremely out of date and obsolete compared to Bell TV/Fiber and especially US cable providers.
I hope that Cogeco has invested significant resources ($) to upgrade or even surpass their competition.
The announcement was made this morning. TIVO arrives as of Monday. I already called, but they dont have the system ready yet to even book install appointments. Was told to call back Monday. Gave them feedback that if they're making a huge media announcement, they may want to have people trained already. Nobody knew what was going on over there.
Also YouTube integration.
Whole house viewing; 1TB hard drive and ability to record 6 shows on the pvr.
Was told the pvr will be $20/mth and $7/mth for each separate tv.
All the usual TiVo software like thumbs up.
I need to know exactly what model TiVo pvr they are going to use.
Will the cable guide be able to tell when a program is running over like a football game and adjust the scheduled recordings accordingly?
