May be off topic so move if appropriate.
A sore point. I have Shaw TV service with two XG1v4-A cable boxes.
I subscribe to CBC News Network but since a week before Christmas I can only properly playback recordings from this channel at regular speed. Trying to FastForward at speed 2 stops playback and FastForward at speeds 1 and 3 don't stop playback but are pixelating (speed 1) or jumping forward irregularly (at Speed 3). There are similar problems with Rewind. After a number of phones to support and many box resets and other things I haven't heard of any resolution to the problem and I gave up phoning 3 months ago.
Unrelated, I think. Last Thursday Aug. 22, I lost all access to recording functionality on both boxes. A service tech that day said he could access my boxes recorded list and future recording lists but I can't.
As of today Wednesday Aug. 28, no change. I called tech support and a service call is scheduled for tomorrow.
I hardly ever watch Live TV now as I like the convenience of watching when I want and what I want to watch of a program. I am not satisfied to try and go back to watching just Live TV.
