Can you claify what "I am affiliated with Shaw in Sask" means?
Considering that SaskTel monitors it's calls, it seems strange that when you phoned SaskTel a SaskTel tech would tell you that Shaw is far superior to SaskTel. Unless of course he wants to be fired.
Also, what did you mean when you said SaskTel is trying to jam info via fibre optic down into a phone line?
i talked to a sasktel tech in person. one of my buddies friends works at sasktel. we got into a conversation since i was looking to buy a new hdtv.
affilated means that my sister works at shaw, but she transfered to vancouver.
how sasktel works.
from the office. fibre feeds into a d-slam. a dslam is where the fibre ends. from there it runs via phone line to a house. hence, jamming fibre into a phone line.
thats why sasktel has a channel changing delay. pixilization, freezing.
when you click to change a channel. the signal is sent to the dslam, changes the channel, and then gets sent back to the house. hence the 3 second delay because DSL is limited by distance. and any distance involved means a slow down in channel transmission
if you pay attention and push the up channel button on your remote you will get a black screen. than audio will come in, than finally picture.
thats the time it takes for the channel to get sent to the dslam and back.
shaw doesnt have this long of a delay because all the channels are fed right to the box because coax has the capacity. the delay only occurs when the channel is being tunned with a digital box.
shaw analog WITH NO digital box has zero chanel delay.
