This copy is for your personal non-commercial use only. It took some time to really get to know each other. But that awkward phase has passed and I see a happily ever after in our future. And when a shiny new TiVo recorder came along and expanded the family, I thought we had it all.
But I panicked when I heard that, at the end of the year, digital was going to completely replace analog broadcast, thus rendering my current setup obsolete. My needs are more than basic. This was long overdue — the new box has been available since February. Welcome to the 21st century.
All those flat-screens that will be bought and gifted this Christmas will need to be fed. And what they eat is digital HD. In the meantime, though, I have had to get used to the slightly squished proportions of an HD signal on an SD screen. On the plus side, it makes everyone look really, really thin. The biggest Biggest Losers are now just pleasingly plump. A disaster waiting to happen, especially around children or pets. I decided to go all in with a premium NextBox 2.
The NextBox did require a period of adjustment. The old box would power up on the channel I was watching when I turned it off. I actually kind of liked the barker channel; the interview show is of surprisingly high quality.
I did notice the upgraded On Demand feature, which makes my job infinitely easier, allowing me to catch up on shows I had previously only seen a few times. I was skeptical about the on-board PVR. But the NextBox allows you to set recordings directly from its channel guide. A word of caution about fast-forward: it cranks up quite fast.
The TiVo was slower and conveniently stopped a few seconds back from where your clumsy finger hit play.
With the NextBox, you often miss a few scenes, forcing you to rewind. A small price to pay for skipping commercials, though be aware that there are On Demand channels that will not allow any fast-forward at all. Not a major annoyance, since most of the ads are TV-show promos. But this will change, admits Purdy, as more accurate PVR ratings result in increased ad revenues. You can hardly blame the broadcasters, who are already losing eyes with the commercial-skipping still possible on recorded programs.Rotate image Save Cancel.

Is it worth to buy Rogers NextBox ontario from kijiji I am planing to buy one more Nextbox but wondering is it worth buying used one from kijiji? Was it worth? Well, get out your checkbooks ladies and gentlemen, because it seems like the entire liberal cabinet can be bought.
Because its It's not too much of a hassle, it's pretty straight forward. But that being said, you need to ensure that the box that's being sold to you, is not being rented. I heard of some of those stories, I bought our box a year ago and I can't remember what information was required, but I simply called in to ensure that it was bought out and made them aware of the fact that I was now activating it under my account.
And then for the actual condition, not sure until you actually plug it in luckily my guy let me. For peace of mind, if there's not much of a price difference between Rogers and Kijiji, I'd bite the bullet and just pay for the Rogers one.
In addition, here is a post from another website on the entire process which is pretty clear and concise, I'm not sure on RFDs policies for external link, so I'm not trying to steal this from someone without credit, this isn't my work! Call Rogers with the name of the seller and the STB number before purchase. This is to ensure that it's not a rental and is properly in Rogers system as a third-party STB and is allowed by Rogers. Have the seller show the STB in operation if possible. If they can't demo, then the price should reflect that.
Ensure the seller deactivates the STB or tells Rogers they're selling it so that you can then activate it. You must call Rogers when you get the STB home to authorize it. Sometimes another call by the seller is required after the buyer has the STB in his possession and is trying to activate it due to Rogers Computer issues - there must be some difference between the "check" and the "activate" steps in Rogers' computer system.
Sometimes, if you call to activate, and the CSR says the box has not been deactivated, if you know the seller has made the call, if you insist that it has been deactivated, the CSR will often activate the STB without another call by the seller. Sometimes we get questions about "moving" a STB from one subscriber to another without calling Rogers. This is against the Terms of Service with Rogers, they can find out monitoring locationand both people could be in trouble with Rogers.
In those cases you need to purchase the correct Motorola STB s and it doesn't have to be a Rogers box, but beware of scam sellers. If the seller is not a "customer in good standing" bills all paid, etc.

Rogers box not authorized - HELP! Thanks for coming in! I want to start off by saying I'm as technologically able as a potato - please keep that in mind especially if my lingo is off. I'm not sure how much of this information is useful but I'll try to be as thorough as I can.
My girlfriend started a new contract for our house about 3 weeks ago - included in the contract was cable, internet, and home phone. We received 2 HD boxes under the contract and are renting these two boxes. There's nothing wrong with these two boxes. I have my own purchased HD box which is a slightly older model that I brought into the house.
I plugged everything in a fired the TV up only to be greeted with a "Not Authorized Box" pop up - no problem, I'll just call in and have it authorized. Now here's the problem - the box, which I bought brand new from Audio Video a few years ago is under another person's account and I can't get it unauthorized because I apparently am not the owner of the box virtually bricking my HD box. The name that the box is under is a name that I have no relations to and a name that I don't recognize at all.
The box was working fine before I brought it unplugged and brought into my girlfriends house. They obviously weren't able to provide me with this persons information but I do have a receipt I think and it has always been associated with an account with my name on it Authorized User.
I'm waiting for Rogers to call me back to see what my options are. But has anyone else gone through this? Is it possible that someone may have accidentally registered my box?
I know it can be hard to hear letters over the phone D, V, C, T, G, can all be confused for one another. Would I be able to ask them to contact this person who my box is under and ask them to verify the number again? But how is this possible, wouldn't their TV be out of order without the proper serial number? Sorry, I'm thinking out loud and ranting now. If anyone has any advice or know what steps I need to take - that would be awesome!
If additional information is needed, please let me know. Thanks for any help! Believe it or not, many of the boxes sold by retail stores were not necessarily new.
Did your box look new when you opened and connected the unit? Did they confirm it is a purchased unit? Did you ask if the box was active on the other account? I purchased 2 boxes a few years ago and the person told me the boxes are registered to the seller but they were not active on the account; therefore, he was able to activate it on my account.
Maybe call if you still have the receipt?

My husband is the real expert in the family, but knowledge does rub off. We are contemplating getting a NextBox; we have analog service and they keep on cutting channels from our package, much to our great annoyance and no compensatory reduction in the bills.
The main stumbling block is the inability to skip commercials efficiently, though I understand you can now skip forward 3 minutes.
With our dvrs each press of the skip forward button gives us 30 seconds, then, according to the machine, you can skip back 5 seconds for each press or 20 seconds.Keep in touch and stay productive with Teams and Officeeven when you're working remotely.
