Rogers - Scientific Atlanta 8300 HD PVR Pixelation
Unfortunately, after 8 great years, my Scientific Atlanta 8300 HD PVR is starting to show its age. I am having issues viewing certain individual channels due to heavy pixelation. Most channels (except for about 10 or so) work perfectly with no pixelation, however these channels that are having issues happen to be the ones that I watch most often. I had 3 tech support crews from Rogers visit my house and they all told me that the cable connection is excellent - it's the box itself that has problems. All 3 concluded that the box is having trouble receiving certain frequencies.
The box in question is owned by me and I have been told by countless people to buy a new one however, the $499.99 price tag for a new one is a little steep and the $24.95/month rental fee is rediculous. I have looked into Kijiji as well but every time I ask for a serial number so that I can ensure that the box is valid to transfer over (that way I don't get ripped off), sellers stop responding or refuse to make the deal. Now I am looking into getting it repaired and was wondering if anybody knows through experience of a good, well priced repair company in Toronto and the GTA that can fix my cable box. Any response would be really appreciated!!
