TV Problems?

Television
Reported since: 2012-09-10 12:09:11
Technicians are currently investigating an issue with digital breakup (pixelation) on multiple channels, affecting Motorola DCT 700, 2000, 2500, and 6200 set-tops. We hope to have this issue resolved as soon as possible.

No wonder why I never noticed. I don't have any of those boxes.

Last night Showcase Action was acting really bad. So it seems like it is more than the boxes.

What does this mean? When I am watching a show with lots of fast moving lights and effects the picture get all these blocks all over the place. What causes that and how can I fix that?

How do you cancel Cogeco Cable TV? My one year promo discount for my HD box ends on November 15 and I plan to ditch Cogeco on the 16th (or a week later). I plan to have Shaw no later than the start of December (hoping on Nov 17. )
Do I have to call Cogeco a month before we switch so Shaw?
Or do I have to call Shaw Direct and they will take care of letting Cogeco know?

Cogeco generally requires 30 days notice, your responsibility, so if you want that to end on your billing cycle best thing to do is call Cogeco and ask them point blank what day your billing cycle ends and what day would you have to give 30 days notice.

You may want to have a bit of overlap with Shaw, just in case. It didn't take long to arrange my install, took about 5 days from the time I called to the time it was hooked up and ready to watch. I got a promo Shaw used to lure away cable customers in Ontario, added some more HD to it, and got 2 receivers, all installed for about $30. Basically the tax on the receivers.

PM me if you want a contact within Shaw to call.

FYI, you may get a call from Cogeco retentions, depending on how much you're cancelling. I got a call. Others report they didn't and Cogeco stopped the practice.

At the end of the day, I pay less, get more, and the quality is much better.

I'm going to keep the internet and phone for a while until I find a decent provider. Thinking of Start or TekSavvy for internet not sure what to use for phone though.

30 day notice eh? So if my HD box promo is done on Nov 15 than what day should I call Cogeco so they won't slap me with the $75 fee?
