I spoke with someone in retentions. Apparently the Tivo unit is well into beta testing. I was told early next year at the lastest. We shall see.

I know it's still early, but does anyone know what model they are testing, and ultimately releasing? Want to start shopping for it ahead of the switch.

emerjency, there's no indication that Cogeco will accept customer-owned TiVos. I don't know what model they are testing in Canada, but my first guess is the T6. Here's my post from the previous page:

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.

I have all my equipment in a DIY wall rack and am wondering if anyone knows the actual dimensions of the T6.
Thanks!

Thumbs down Cogeco TiVo Announcement

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This could be fantastic for Cogeco because their present software/hardware is extremely out of date and obsolete compared to Bell TV/Fiber and especially US cable providers.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.

It sounds like Cogeco will announce the formal launch of their TiVo service on Thursday at 11 am, although it could be as late as Monday.

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.

Apparently Netflix is integrated too. Very progressive!

Am I dreaming?

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?

Does anyone know if a Cogeco Technician HAS to come out and hook up Tivo, or can I just get one at a Cogeco Storefront and hook it up myself?

Also does anyone know if you can buy a Cogeco Tivo, or are they rental only?
