Well, that sucks.

If you are at all still interested in Cogeco, I would suggest posting in the DSL Reports Cogeco Direct forum. Their rep (Cogeco_Peter) has been very helpful, in my experience. ...

Be aware, however, that some of the choices also count as 2 selections.

Be prepared for a shock, however. Most individual channels are insanely priced. Seems to be either $3.50 or $6.00 / mth, in some cases, more.

It's frustrating that every time I see a new HD channel added, instead of being glad, I'm just angry that it's still not AMC.

They obviously couldn't care less what the...

The problem seems to be resolved by using HDMI, rather than component cables.

I had been using component because HDMI was painfully slow, at times, when switching...

I just checked and I'm also seeing this with 707.

Also, another TV in the house with a Motorola non-PVR box does not have the same problem.

Why does 701 (CTVHT) look like garbage?

It looks like upconverted SD at best.

Even the guide is lower resolution when I'm tuned to 701.

I usually only watch it when I'm watching Sunday NFL, so I don't know if it's always like this.

I'd also add that Cogeco has already made Pick Packages available, but you are required to choose either 25 or 35 channels.

One drawback I can already see is that there is no way to choose AMC, FX...

Fair point, Gentleman. I suppose it would be better to offer a minimum subscription fee, rather than package, to allow for the situation you're describing.

I would expect the wireless connection would only apply for Netflix and Youtube. The 6 simultaneous recordings would refer to cable recordings, which would obviously require a coax cable connection.

Hmmm. Sorry it didn't work. Makes me wonder if your TV is somehow causing this? Although, you did say the box is indicating 720p. Are you connecting via HDMI or component?

Perhaps they sent a software update, or something else caused them to reinitialize your receiver? I'm not sure what the default setting is.
