The current limit of 2 streams per PVR is a limitation of the existing software. Once Mediaroom is installed on a Motorola VIP1216, the PVR can record up to 4 streams. I can't see any reason for Sasktel to limit it to 2.

I replaced my living-room TV with a HDTV so I called to get HD on that TV to go along with the HD PVR in the basement. Apparently they have to come out to install another line and another 2Wire modem as I need more bandwidth.

Does this mean I'm pretty far from the switch? I've read here that I should be able to get 3 HD streams on one line along with my 1 remaining SD signal. I've also got High speed plus so maybe that put me over the limit.

Anyway, I called this AM and they're coming out tomorrow afternoon so that's not bad.

I also enquired about the middle-ware update and she said that it was late summer.

It's always case by case. There's tools that the rep has to see how much bandwidth a line will support, and if what you want is more than ~85% of max bandwidth then another line and modem can be provisioned
