I was surprised not to see anything from my "The Movie Network" (TMN) subscription available via VOD. I called customer support, and was informed that TMN is not yet available on demand. (Although the western equivelent "Movie Central" is available)
Can anybody else with a TMN subscription confirm this? My experience with Shaw direct support is that I don't always get the correct answer on my first call!
^^^So more hardware would be necessary to get it to work. I doubt i'll be using the VOD service very often to necessitate buying the extra hardware, especially since I have 2 PVRs. If this update included a whole home PVR feature or allowed an external HDD for recording using a 600, i'd be all over it so that i can get more use of the one receiver that sits outside of my home network. I'll try VOD on the other receivers but i'm doubtful i'll really use it.
Hi Jimbo thank you it looks like it did update again overnight and is now 7.33. We did have 6.22 before so I dont know what happened the first 20 mins. But I just looked and we have the new auto-timer so were happy about that! It looks like we can even set the exact time we want like one minute before and after which is something we've missed before now. Thanks Shaw for this new feature!
Yes you need extra hardware. Its only network connection is is Ethernet. Even USB would require an adapter, and it is unlikely they will add wireless networking at all with a USB adapter, the least with retail "PC" adapters, as many embedded system developers expressly do not support.
