It looks like CBC and SRC (CBLFT Toronto) gave back the equipment to Gemstar so I don't think TVGOS works up here. The one thread at DHC that had lots of TVGOS info seems to have died off and nobody responded to your question there, so I assume its gone cold up here.
It does work in Ontario.
I am receiving Canadian data and apparently it is from CTV (analog ch. 9) including cable channel listings. I was given four choices in the setup, three cable providers and Bell Express View using a Toronto Postal Code.
Funny, there are program listings for the analog versions of the 'big 3' down here (NBC, CBS & ABC), but for their 'digital' versions, it come up "No listing".
I am using TVGOS with my Toshiba XS35 DVD player. The only way I am able to get it to work is to have analog cable sent directly to the DVD player before it hits the STB. I could not get it to work from the STB. I am also of the understanding that it is not available from ExpressVu (yes? no?).
It's great when recording analogue signals, but useless when you want to record digital from the STB. Have to create manual recording sessions.
As it can't be used in conjunction with a cable or satellite box, I don't see the value in TVGOS.
I use TVGOS on Rogers in Mississauga. It is on CBLFT (Cable 12) and it has a complete guide. Some time in the middle of the year, they switched something in the guide and I had a hard time getting it to sync (I switched back to OTA which is CFTO 9). After a few weeks of mucking around, I managed to get it working. I look forward to the day when guide services can be downloaded from the internet (over Wi-Fi if available).
