If it's going to an existing outlet that was already functioning in the whole home setup you most certainly should be fine to just to switch it yourself. Sadly, you're also almost certainly to get a rep that will try and tell you otherwise.Hi All,
If I purchase an additional Nextbox HD Terminal (whatever the latest model is), is there a way to add it to my whole home PVR setup myself or do I need a technician to set it up for me. (I already have the whole home setup just want to add another terminal in the basement).
What is missing from there, and a mod should probably add it to the front, is that whenever you want to add an additional STB to your WHPVR (which at this time is only a 4642) so that the additional STB can view recordings from one of the two PVRs (being either the 8642 or 9865) you need to have the WHPVR Code added to the specific STB.The maximum used to be 2 Cisco PVRs and 6 Cisco STBs in the WHPVR system, but it now appears you can have at least 3 PVRs - Contact Rogers for limitations at your specific installation. Stand-alone STBs or PVRs can be "outside" the WHPVR inside your home. For example you can have stand-alone SA STBs/PVRs in your home, but not incorporated into WHPVR. Or Cisco STB/PVRs beyond the number allowed inside WHPVR inside your home.
