Change Smart Record - PVR Options

I think you meant CBS program, "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" comes on 032 Global Toronto or 336 Global BC.

I pay extra for the time shift US networks so I expect that the default HD for me would be the US Nets. We use the "Smart Record" feature for shows.

After setting the "Smart Record" from the guide, the default is first HD airing. You can fix all future airings to record the channel you want (032 or 336 or however your 630 is channel mapped) by selecting

PVR OPTIONS
VIEW UPCOMING AIR DATES
CHANNELS – select your channel

You should not have to change it again - a one-time thing.

agreed - remote response is sluggish, delayed and frustrating as hell. What could possibly have been the benefit of this update which has made all these other things so lousy? And add me to the list of haters regarding the scheduling of series, or Favorite events.
I don't want to have to edit each one every time. On Thursdays I record The Late Show from CTV since CBS always runs late with NFL, so I avoid CBS on purpose. Shaw must have some agenda recording simul-subs or LNB's we haven't figured out yet

It would be to have defaults to turn on off the recording start and stop pop ups AND
a setting to change the default behaviour of the recording setup as noted above or a way to more easily adjust it at the time. Maybe a Smart Recording advanced option where you can set HD/SD/All/Specific channel.
I haven't been able to figure this out. For example, I set up a show that's on Global and CBS. I want the Global HD version. The software is forcing the American CBS version on me, at the same time, which I don't want.
How do we tell this stupid new software the channel we select is the channel, and time, we want to record from is not up for negotiation?

EDIT: I think I may have figured it out, but what a kluge, and, I'll believe it records the right channel when I see it

User-Defined Defaults

LONSat, I like your idea of being able to user-set the default condition. To each their own

that drives me insane...No I don't want to record 284 at 6pm I want to record the show on 287 at 9pm. I am busy recording / doing other things at 6pm, I don't want to be forced to watch 1 of the 2 recording shows or something on my PVR......argggggg

Default PVR guide pick is first HD showing

I am getting used the the default of 48.14 being first showing of an HD program rather than the exact channel and time I pick from the guide.

RuralRouter The few times I've seen the screensaver, it has always been PPV.

OlStatic The response time from the remote has gotten worse and worse.
Sometimes it takes seconds for the receiver to respond to remote actions.

Its not a remote problem (batteries) because the receiver will act on it.
Like pressing rewind on the remote it can take 10-20 seconds to rewind.
Same thing with other commands.
Sometimes it works fine but eventually it becomes sluggish.

Smart Record Default & Static Images

RE: Default PVR recording from Menu
Like some have written here, we much prefer the old firmware that allowed picking a channel to Smart Record from the guide and that is the channel that would be recorded, not the new default of Smart Record first HD showing. I just sent an email to Shaw Direct to suggest they revert in their next firmware update.

RE: Pixel Shifting on Static Images
I see that burn-in has occurred to at least one TV set of a contributor to this discussion. I've made my views know to SD, but they insist that Pixel Shifting works. I've stared just inches from the Sting Ray logo on my 65" LED screen; I don't see the pixels moving. Anyway, a logo usually covers more than a few pixels. The logo would have to move entirely to avoid a static image. I don't understand....

Billy34 hit exit on remote

kcowan When I change channels, it shows the new channel at the bottom of the screen for 15 seconds. Is there any way to reduce the time to say 5 seconds. It is really irritating when switching back and forth between football and tennis because the scores are covered up. I know I can hit exit but that gets tiring.

Per bravo 1, I emailed Shaw Direct about the new static images. I received a prompt and courteous reply. I like that about Shaw.

The response said that there should be no burn-in due to their use of PIXEL SHIFTING.
Well pixel shifting isn't working because its burning in my screen. Maybe I should send them a bill for damages. I use the screen saver a lot.
