Hey everybody!

 

I had business internet installed at my residence along with business Optik TV cuz it was an awesome deal. Long story short, they will not give you a PVR on Business Optik. 

 

Does anybody know if I buy a vip5662w off of craigslist or ebay that it will work? Assuming it's a Telus box, do I have to re-register it on my account or can I just plug it in

 

Maybe @WestCoasterBC knows?

 

thanks for everything!!

Just found this link:

They even advertise this capability!!  I'm livid that they are not providing this.

I think it’s the fact that you’re technically a residential dwelling (with a business service) not an actual commercial business front.

  It could also be the ‘wonderful deal‘ does not include PVR service. Usually residential service is cheaper than business.
