Yeah I have had Sasktel High speed since '95 it has always worked awsome for me.
I have been on the high speed "plus' for about 2 yrs now.. I alwas hear Marge Simpson in the back of my head when I say I have High speed Plus,,"just how fast do you need to download Porn" mmmmgggggg,,, as she said to Homer..... Anyway I digress.
The High speed has always been the saving grace in this whole Fiasco , I have had.
As for the Boxes,,, I have two of the Newer, "Pace" boxes, silver in colour, and the Motorola VIP1200. (if you do a google search, you should be able to see the PDF file on it).
My Issue is with all the boxes, on the standard channels, the picure will appear to have rectangular boxes, around a moving image, as if the picture is tearing or not enough memory has been bufferd before the processor draws the picture to the television screen, all the boxes do this, whenever there is alot of movement,, ie,, water,, or a basketball game. To the point where it is painfull to watch.. This is not Pixalization, the blocks are too big for that, these are approximatley 1/8" tall and bout 1/4" long,, it's very annoying.
The HD portion does look GREAT but only for about 20 or 40 minutes before the Motorola box locks up, (sound or picture will go then nothing,, or a frozen image), and up you go to reboot the box. I often wonder version of Windows that box is running
So I have decided to go back to Bell ExpressView,, made me a smoking good deal too.,, Of cousre they all fall over themselves to get your money back
Having made this decission I was still polite to the people with Sasktel, not thier fault, and they told me they would still welcome me back if and when all the technical issuses were resolved. To boot they waived my $99.00 dollar disconect fee 'cause of all the problems I was having.
I am still keeping my High speed thou.
