one thing i've noticed with the new update is when looking at the guide, upcoming airings (option C), it includes ALL the channels, not just the ones I have included in my channel list as it did before. So for the Amazing Race Canada, it lists all the HD and SD CTV channels, not just the HD ones from my list.
Anyone having an issue with the new search feature? I only use it occasionally. I tried to search for an upcoming program and nothing came up. I used the guide to find the program and I had spelled everything correctly. I tried again searching by specific title and still nothing. I even tried to search for something that was in the current guide window and nothing. I don't use the search very often but the search seems to be broken.
It did spin when I first tried it. I did a couple searches last night and it seemed to work correctly. Maybe the guide data/database was in a state that could not be searched. Anyways the search seems to working now but as I stated I do not use it very often.

When I change channels, it shows the new channel at the bottom of the screen for 15 seconds. Is there any way to reduce the time to say 5 seconds. It is really irritating when switching back and forth between football and tennis because the scores are covered up. I know I can hit exit but that gets tiring.
RE: Default PVR recording from Menu
Like some have written here, we much prefer the old firmware that allowed picking a channel to Smart Record from the guide and that is the channel that would be recorded, not the new default of Smart Record first HD showing. I just sent an email to Shaw Direct to suggest they revert in their next firmware update.
RE: Pixel Shifting on Static Images
I see that burn-in has occurred to at least one TV set of a contributor to this discussion. I've made my views know to SD, but they insist that Pixel Shifting works. I've stared just inches from the Sting Ray logo on my 65" LED screen; I don't see the pixels moving. Anyway, a logo usually covers more than a few pixels. The logo would have to move entirely to avoid a static image. I don't understand....
The response time from the remote has gotten worse and worse.
Sometimes it takes seconds for the receiver to respond to remote actions.
Its not a remote problem (batteries) because the receiver will act on it.
Like pressing rewind on the remote it can take 10-20 seconds to rewind.
Same thing with other commands.
Sometimes it works fine but eventually it becomes sluggish.
