Shaw might decide to revert the component outs of a 605 (and 630) to "SD only" by software update if pressured. Only people using a converter would be unaffected.
interesting....analog hole drama

tvmaster wow...that makes me want to just drop the service of Shaw altogether. 12 years, never missed a payment...three different CSR's....and you seemingly have no trouble....bizarre

ps...how old was your 605?
I received my reconditioned 605 late yesterday, it is now up and working great.

I can't remember when I purchased, but is was soon after they became available I traded my 505 in at that time.

atvnut My 605 went tits up last week, they are replacing it with another one I asked if was going to be another 605 they assured me it would be. I suspect it will arrive later today or tomorrow.

ontario retailers with DSR605 units?

Just got off the phone with Shaw Direct, who claim they don't even have any refurbished DSR605 units for exchange or sale (for a DSR505).

Does anyone know of a Ontario (Toronto area preferred) 3rd party retailer who may still have some, either new or refurbished?

I really need component (and the clock's helpful as well) outputs...has anyone tried a HDMI to component box with a DSR600?

Both Future Shop and Best Buy have removed the units from their web inventory.

Thanks
