Had the Technicolor boxes, 2 sets, and they were nothing but problems. They would reinitialize 7 or 8 times a day. All of them, not just one. And that was both sets of boxes with a modem change. They also ran really hot, all of them, again, both sets.
So, I'd like 4k, and was wondering if anyone's used the Arris box (model # starts with VIP) with a couple, or one, 1080p box, and had success.
Comments are welcome.
I had the Arris VIP5662 4k PVR and it worked well except the HDCP error. So, when the technicolor UIW8001 was released, I thought it might work with my Denon receiver but it didn't make any difference. Now I miss the Arris box as it never had any trouble working with the Harmony hub. The technicolor box on the average misses 1 in 2 commands. I am tempted to ask for the Arris box from Telus but feel guilty as I asked for the newer box myself. The next time when a Telus Tech has a visit for any other reason, I am going to change that.
However, I have never had any other symptom such as rebooting, losing the recording etc.
