  1. Bell Fibe TV
    Hi. I have an extra Fibe VIP2202 (it's in perfectly good condition, just had to replace it with a wireless STB). It's past rental so they don't want it back. The Bell site says recycle it according to your province's guidelines and refers to Ontario Electronic Stewardship. On that site, STBs...
  2. Rogers Cable TV

  7. Shaw Cable HD tuner and HD PVR Discussion
    About 6 months ago, I bought an HD TV. It has the digital channels. I called up Shaw to find out how to get HD, and they start trying to sell me a set-top box. I'm wondering what value this STB adds? It seems that all it is doing is forcing buy-in (I'm less likely to switch to a competitor if I...
