  5. PVR Extender bought from Rogers doesn't work

    Rogers Cable - Atlantic Canada
    Hi. I bought a PVR extender from a Rogers store today here in St. John's, Newfoundland. "FreeAgent GoFlex DVR" is written on the box. I have an older Motorola PVR that I bought a few years ago from Rogers. It only holds 20 HD hours and I badly need more storage than that. I have been on the...

  7. Seeking Recommendations for new Media Center / PVR set-up

    Home Theatre Personal Computer & Media Extenders
    I've done quite well with my ganged OTA antennas (in Waterdown, ON), and using Windows Media Centre (Win7) as my front end PVR and TV Guide, as well as using a separate Media Server for Music and Media Storage (HP Media Smart, and various upgrades until Windows Home Server mangled everything)...
  8. Set Default PVR setting on Fibe TV

    Bell Fibe TV

    Rogers Cable TV: HD PVR Discussion
    Nextbox 8642HD PVR wouldn’t tune certain channels including global (3) and city (7). Swapped for a different unit same model. Same issue. Had Rogers tech come and he said it was a signal issue and the inside cable was to blame so they couldn’t fix it. Power outage the other day, Nextbox...
  11. Modify a 9200 to work like a media player?

    Bell Satellite TV PVR, HD PVR and HD Receivers
    Is it possible to modify the software in a 9200 to work like a media player like the WD TV Live? From what I've read, it runs Linux, so why wouldn't it be possible? I'm surprised people haven't started hacking them for things other than watching subscription television.

  13. Folders in Fibe PVR

    Bell Fibe TV
    I can't seem to group shows into 'folders' (ie all episodes of Simpsons are under one folder) for my Fibe PVR. I've seen screen shots where there is a number beside multiple shows but I don't seem to be able to get that. Is there a setting that I am missing, or should I contact Bell. Boubacar

  15. Paused TV "jumps" to live TV

    Bell Aliant Home Phone, Internet, IPTV
    Sometimes when I've paused a live TV broadcast, when I start to play it again, it plays for a little, then jumps to live TV (meaning it skips right over some of the program). There's a message at the top of the screen, but it goes by quite fast, and I didn't get it verbatim... It's something...
