Oh my.... I got my rogers digital terminal today and all I can say is wtf?

this thing is the cheapest POS I ever seen in my life, there is no led display on the front for time or to see the channel you are current on.. it is really small and light feels so cheap. I asked the Tech so whats the deal with this, he said ya these ones are 100% digital.. I would rather have the older ones then this new crap man it's the Scientific Atlanta dtv e940... any one else have this one?

We just got Rogers digital 2 weeks ago and they gave us the Scientific Atlanta Explorer 1840 which has the time and channel display and seems very solid. Maybe call back to get it replaced with this model?

ive got the same one. no time or channel display but other than that no problems. it's been working fine... i'd be inclined to change it if it's proven that the hardware inside the box produces lower-resolution images or something along those lines.
the lack of a time/channel display is not a big deal.

ya i guess but it just feels way more cheaply made then the older ones..

I can buy my own and use it with rogers? I assume I can but just wondering is there some ******** fee I have to pay because I want to use my digital top set box?

I assume that the boxes need to be programmed to work with your particular account/circuit/whatever.

My advice is, if you REALLY want to get a different box and customer service won't help you out, BREAK the set-top-box you hate so much and see if they replace it with a better one ;)
