Seems like somebody reads these forums! The OLN logo was updated and the CTV News logo reverted to the new version. CNN HD and BTN are still monochrome and WGN (SD) is still incorrect. These are not important issues, but attention to detail always shows.
I posted earlier about how my elderly father hates the new menu. I tried everything, contacted Shaw Direct and was told that I had done everything possible to increase font size. Unfortunately, it is still too small.They also indicated that many seniors are unhappy with the new menu system. A local dealer told me the only solution is to get an older box that only shows the old menu system. That is what I have done.
I also emailed Shaw with these issues, suggesting a number of changes. They thanked me for the feedback & that they would work on the upgrades, but offered no time lines.
So I agree with earlier comments about the shortcomings of the new menu.
I agree the improvements are nice. The support for emergency alerts in this release has an unfortunate effect if two recordings are happening at the same time.
"If dual recordings are happening when an EAS message is issued for your region, one recording will be interrupted in order to display the EAS alert. Please note that the interrupted recording will not restart."
I read that as it will basically stop one of the recordings and it's done. Seems odd that it wouldn't just show up as a banner but it basically trashes whatever is on the second tuner.
Whoo Hoo update maybe tonight, wait to see how the new guide is, I hope one day they get rid of the double channels if not let you group all hd network together, sports together etc. I keep all the doubles just in case one channel has issues.
