Re: [TV] Rogers tries to nail me with $50 Technician Install Fee

OMG..Somebody made a mistake... it's the end of the world.

You realize this box is a government mandated thing, not Rogers? Maybe you should complain to the government for trying to make things better for most Canadians.

Get your facts straight. The conversion mandated by the government was in regards to OTA broadcasting. The decision to stop providing analog channels on cable is the the cable companies attempt to control their signal and shuffle channels to higher priced packages that used to be included in lower tiers.

It also frees up bandwidth, so there is also a technical reason for it.

Especially for the upstream path so they can work towards improving these beyond pathetic upload speeds.

Yeah, rogers is good at "making mistakes" like screwing up routing tables on non ATIPA customers and "disconnecting" TPIA customers.
