1. Yeah, but it would be Standard Definition, not HD. No use in having an HDTV or an HDPVR if you're looking at coax downstream of the STB. A typical installation these days for any service provider in Canada is one (or two) coaxes feeding a STB and HDMI downstream of the STB to the TV. This doesn't even include things like BD players, AVRs, streaming boxes, etc.

2. That's if you want a simple STB at each TV. If you want an HDPVR like the 630, you need two coaxes to the HDPVR on Shaw Direct. Other service providers typically function with a single coax feed to the STB
