I got my Arris Tivo 4k receiver installed last night in chatham here.Video setting on the box is 2160p all the time.Tsn 4k had soccer game never came in,i called in and she said i never had 4 k box,I had to explain to her i did.Picture is even better for regular hd channels.Overall its awesome picture until they figure it all out will take time i am sure.Box itself is smaller has no fan like T-6 tivo had,hopefully it doesn't get too hot.

HERE WE GO... Dude just left after installing my Cogeco/Tivo 4k, as soon as he plugged in the HDMI I get a load buzz from speakers, he ran all new wires from the poll. Also, did he bring the wrong box??? I have the Tivo T6.....Told him this was no good and that we need to try another box or something, he had to go and said he might be able to bring another box by later, this is before I discovered that I think I have a wrong box. WTF

Well I went to the Cogeco store yesterday to discuss adding the 4K to my plan. Unfortunately it would cost $25 per month to add this to my current plan. I find it tough to swallow when there is currently only one channel with very limited programming available....have to say that I'm a little more than disappointed.

The only possible "upside" would be to upgrade to the Ultimate Mix package for 95/month. But that would include both the 15/month rental fee of the new 4k box and the 10/month charge for the 4K programming. Seems like a lot of money for so little added benefit.

Still have the buzz but as for the picture, I am really impressed. Keep in mind that you would need a large tv to see any difference. Watching the Leafs in 4k...even though the guide says basketball is on No mosquito noise or compression artifacts and that is what ruined my picture on my 174" with my satellite dishes (I need every pixel I can get) , it's a nice clean picture.

I'm looking to switch from the TiVo box to the new 4K TiVo. Are the one pass info transferred or are they only locally stored on the home box? Also, would I need a service visit to swap them? Since I'm already set I hope I can just set up the box.

The OnePass I would think is stored on the box itself. PRobably just takes a few moments to set the new box up for that. I'd recommend removing the info from the box you are getting removed before they arrive though.

They have to come and set it up because it involves setting it up for your account, line-up and also connecting any minis to look at this box instead of the old one - that is if you have any minis. There are probably other reasons too.

The Sportsnet 4K channels are working, Jays will look really good when they lose again.
