I don't believe you are doing anything wrong if you do what you say you are doing. You can have your receiver activated at your home or your vacation home. It might be easier to just do it at your home (temporarily hook it up to a TV there), then move it after. I'm not sure about the dishes, but I think you are fine.
As long as you own both homes, then a relative watching your TV at your vacation home is no different then the relative watching TV at your regular home. I don't think Shaw Direct would make a big deal of it even if you didn't own both places.
