Changes / Improvements you would like to see in MTS Ultimate TV?
I recently had MTS Ultimate TV installed (switched from Shawdirect).
Overall I am happy with the switch. I love having 3 TV's hooked up, and having the Whole Home PVR.
However, there are some things that I preferred with Shaw Direct. I was hoping we could use this thread as a place to capture things we wished were changed or improved with MTS Ultimate. Maybe some of the things we wish for are already offered, but we don't know about them?
Also, maybe the guys who know Mediaroom can let us know if some of the suggestions are technically possible or not?
Here are somethings that I wished MTS TV had:
1) The ability to handle the SD and HD feeds separately. By this I mean with Shawdirect I could have my SD channels stretched to fill the width of my TV, and I could leave the HD channels alone. With MTS, there is no such functionality. I can change the setting on my TV, but that changes it for both SD and HD, which is no good.
2) The ability to put a "reminder" or "switch to" tag on a channel for a show at a later time. With Shawdirect I could tag a show that is going to play at say 8 o'clock, and have box would either give me a reminder when it was 7:59, or automatically switch to the show. It's not a huge thing, but I liked the feature.
3) Not a big deal for me, but my wife liked the color coded Shawdirect Guide. Would it be possible to add an option to make the guide color coded? (I.E. sports = green, movies = blue), etc.
Anyone have any others?
