This was happening with Rogers for a couple of years, but recently it became really annoying when the delay was about 30 seconds. I contacted Stingray again and they fixed the issue with Rogers after a few back/forth e-mails where they asked me if I'd rebooted, what firmware/box I was using, etc.

Nanuuk User interface tweak has dimmed the channel menu and is quite annoying. As you flip through the menu the channel selected is illuminated.

Dr.Dave Nov 16 - Dec 11 | Gateway User Interface Update

User Interface Tweaks
We have tweaked the highlight and cell colouring to enhance readability.

Universal Search
Search results will now be condensed for easier browsing. It is also sorted by TV (live airings), PVR Recordings and On-Demand availability.

Stingray Album Art
To enhance the Stingray Digital Audio experience, customers will now be presented with a visual, poster-based album art visual to indicate the title, track and artist information.

PVR List Resetting to Scheduler
We have adjusted the behaviour of the “PVR” button to no longer reset to the “Scheduler” tile upon each press. It will enter the PVR List on the last highlighted tile when the menu was exited.

See the link for before and after screen shots.

gzink It is good!

k801809 @gzink - another update is rolling out as we speak to address genre colouring, take a look at the link for the new style.

gzink Unfortunately just a vertical separator is coloured. And the movie colour is hardly detectable. I know I am hard to please!

andyk The color coding is back with the latest update, along with sports recording extension prompts.
See .

LD500 My wife watches 20x more TV than me and hates the new Gateway guide.
I love it. Stupid me, I always found it confusing which channel was currently selected due to all the colours on the screen.
Now it's nice and simple but I have a feeling anyone that watches tv regularly might find it lacking information.

By the way, I heard a couple months ago Shaw testing a totally new system by Arris.
Where can I find any discussion, even rumours, of this? Seems like very little action on Shaw at this site these days.

Only other site I found was the Shaw Community forums and I doubt there would be much in sneak peak reports on Shaw's own site.

zapattack Second post got lost.
First update did not change visual appearance.
There was a second, separate update (24 hrs later on my logs) that changed colors and layout.

gzink Sure miss the colour.
Maybe there's a smoky haze in Vancouver which gives the colour there.

hdguy2019 I've got my update here in Edmonton and the guide is not color coded. What I miss is the new episodes of shows was usually in a different color which made it easy to see.

BTW, what is the 'shelf life' of the Gateways, I've made mine installed in 2011 and I worry that when the Gateway decides to stop working I wont have any TV to watch :-(

zapattack Upgrade steps started at 2:00AM and finished by 4:00AM

Movies, sports, kids shows all color coded.
2019-03-05 06:58 AM
gzink I hadn't noticed but you are right. There is NO colour coding. That was extremely useful to me. Sports/Movies.
I'll have to check the movies list but it used to have every movie whether we had the channel or not so that was extremely useless. It does appear one step forward and 6 back.
Does any systems person at Shaw know what they are doing???
Easy on the eyes and half as useful. Now that is INDEED an UPGRADE(NOT).

Gateway update

From the pictures they use as examples, it appears that movies, kid's shows, sports, etc. will no longer be colour coded. That would be a downgrade for me. I haven't had the update happen on my machine yet so we'll see.

gzink Thanks guys

To quote...This update enhances the overall interface including the Guide, PVR List, Browse Banner and Menus on your Gateway set-top box.
Yes some improvement but the main icons are a step backwards ..circles with an r for recorded? Really? Is that representing film canisters?
