Telus Optik HD Box (CIS330)

Bought two for home use to connect other TVs I have. So far I am entirely satisfied with the product performance. The picture is great and recording and playing the recorded programs is very simple.

Love Optik TV

I have been an Optik subscriber for 2 years now. Love the picture and sound quality. I would recommend Optik to anyone. We have four boxes in our house. I just wish you could watch and/or record more than 3 HD programs at the same time.

It does surround sound

Just wanted to point out to Mike and for any others who may be swayed by his review that box (all of them) can do 5.1 surround. There is a setting in the menu under audio that needs to be changed from stereo.

Recommended

Have used the TELUS Optik TV for more than 6 months now and it works very well. The picture quality is excellent and, depending on your location, you may be able to record/watch 3 HD feeds at once. You can download an iPhone/iPad app (or use the web interface) to set up your recording preferences, which sure beats trying to do that with a remote. Having the ability to share one PVR is really a great feature! There are few downsides. Sometimes the STB (set top box) loses its connection to the PVR briefly and you can get get kicked out of your recorded show. After a few minutes, you can try it again and you will continue where you left off, so this is more of an annoyance than anything. (It was much worse 6 months before, so they really have done some good work fixing this issue). Secondly, be warned that this STB uses unusual remote control codes, which means your universal remote might not work, or might not work as well as the bundled remote. (I have a Logitech Harmony remote, and have gotten it configured to work almost as well as the remote that comes with the STB, but it took some tinkering.) As well, if you plan on "hiding" your STB and controlling it with an IR repeater, you should do your research because not all IR repeaters work with this STB. You will need to do your research and buy a more expensive IR repeater that is compatible. Lastly, I had a heck of time getting the STB to work with new Samsung plasma screen over HDMI. The solution seems to be throw in a HDMI switcher in between the STB and the TV which stabilizes the signal or something. All in all, a very good product with a few glitches that probably won't affect you.

Nothing more then 2.0 sound.

The Optik HD PVR does not want to do anything more then 2 channel audio. Selecting surround sound only makes all the audio really quiet. Miss Shaw. Dont mind Telus overall though. But they dont have a clue as to why I only get 2 channel audio no matter if I'm using HDMI to my reciever or Optical or Coaxal. Piece of junk.

Great!

Bought it and set it up with my PVR. Works seemlessly. A little bit of lag sometimes when I use the menu, but not big enough of an issue to affect overall use!

BUY THIS

Bought this over boxing day. Make sure you don't buy additional PVR's (I did that and it didnt work with the Optik product). Buy additional HD Boxes if you have more than 1 TV - the Optik service will allow you to use the PVR functionality across multiple TVs, even if your secondary TV has an HD box hooked up to it. Good on TELUS for developing this technology - saves us all money from having to buy multiple PVR!!

Best TV EVER!!!!!

TELUS Optik TV is simply the best TV experience available in the market today. So much better than Cable it's amazing, and it's cheaper than Cable too which is a big bonus. Experts from TELUS came out and did all the install, no hassles at all. The picture is better than I ever got from Cable and all the channels are Digital and super clear. The Optik Internet service is faster and cheaper than Cable too. It's like Cable is a horse and buggy and TELUS OPTIK is a Ferrari. I especially love the way all the TV's in my home can play and record from the PVR automatically, that feature is amazing. I'd suggest everyone upgrade from the 1950's world of cable slavery and get the super modern TELUS Optik TV and Internet, get better service and save some money too.

Excellent

Just had optik installed with 3 TVs, so i used a couple of these CIS330's. This TV service is excellent. Tech was one of the best we've ever had here. Thorough and fast. The TV quality is great.. Very happy with Optik and these Cisco boxes.

Enjoying more TV

Purchased from FutureShop and had it set up by Telus. They did a great job coming into our home and making sure everything was done professionally. The TV Guide runs so much smoother than any other system I've ever tried. Also can't complain about being able to record 2 shows and still watch one more (even though it's standard def!)

Would recommend it

Ordered through Telus and picked up a 2nd HD box from Future Shop. Great product and would highly recommend it. Can use this in my room downstairs and still access my PVR recordings on my TV set up upstairs! Don't know why people are complaining about Optik - this isn't their Satellite TV!! Totally different product guys!!!!!
