Trying to compile a list of the models that Rogers offers, and the respective Nextbox generation number. Can anyone help fill in the ????


PVR:

Nextbox 3.0:
- 9865HD

Nextbox 2.0:
- 8642HD




Non-PVR:
- ???

Nextbox 2.0:
- 4642HD

Nextbox 1.0:
- 8600HD



Would be nice to know the differences in these models in regards to things like RAM, CPU speed, # of tuners etc...

The 9865 is the latest PVR with 8 tuners.

The 4642 is the latest STB (other than the 4K STB) - all STBs have 1 tuner.

There is no information on RAM, CPU, etc. The 8642, which has 2 tuners is very slow compared to the 9865.

The 8600 is basically an 8642 that has been "dumbed down" to be a STB instead of a PVR because no one wants an 8642 as a PVR since it's slow. It should function fine as a STB.
