Cogeco Whole Home DVR

Cogeco has released a Whole Home DVR today,here is the link...

»www.cogeco.ca/web/on/en/resident···p?id=117

This is maybe why they messed with the pace Firmware,now it is
3 key presses to get to the DVR settings,Please Cogeco just gives us a one button access key for this frequently used feature,like the List button that shows all your recordings.

$43/month for three TVs and no option to buy hardware? Yikes.

Well.. That's $14 and change per tv (Cheaper than renting 3x DVRs) and the recorded content is shared.

It's still expensive, particularly when there is no option to purchase.

Why are equipment specs not given? How do the boxes communicate to each other?

I'm not sure. It might be wireless communication.

Sounds right i see the Pace Boxes support MoCA 1.1

also in the fine print Installation and/or activation fees may apply. witch it probably $100 so you looking at $566.99 for the first year then then $591.62 each year after that.

Keep in mind this little blurb at the bottom of the page:

"The High Definition Receiver, Digital Video Recorder and Whole Home DVR offers are valid only if customer is a new HD Digital TV account"

So it sounds like any current HD subscribers will be paying another $10 on top of the listed fees.

Obviously trying to appeal to those pesky, otherwise undesirable promo jumpers.

I went into the retail outlet about this. I was told that they network straight off of coax cable. But the units had to be "networked" in fixed locations and a tech needed to do it. $49.99 one time fee for hook up.

I have my install today for this service, and I am getting the $10 off for 12 months for the 2 TV options, so I am getting $22.99 for 12 months plus the vanishing LPIF fee. I will have to wait and see when I get my October bill.

Monopoly at it's finest.

The price is not out of line for a whole home DVR in the states. Often ranging about 20-30 per month, it's a luxury item so what is stopping them from selling it at the highest price point the market will tolerate.

Hs anyone already on a new customer promo price tried to sign up for the whole home system? What happened to your existing discounts?

I currently save nearly $50 per month with 3 services.

Audet will label you as an undesirable customer if you think you are entitled to extended discounts.

I am a new customer who had an install on August 2, and then called to get the whole home dvr and I am receiving the $10 discount that is being advertised. I only have TV with Cogeco, so there are no other discounts.
