LONSat Sorry @Bayguy I thought you were looking for the advanced numbering sequence.

Overall, I think this is a zap2it issue. If you jump to other days different US Networks appear and disappear. Something in their backend database or web interface link is messing these channels up.

Bayguy Thank you Lonsat but I don't want to. I was just saying that even though RR is only seeing National numbers on Zap2it the old numbers are still there too. Or maybe you were answering RR. Its hard to tell here.

LONSat You have to go into zap2it settings and select Shaw Direct National East or West. Then the numbers will change.

Bayguy My Zap2it still says "Shaw Direct (Advanced)" and my numbers haven't changed.

Zap2It Still Working On It

It appears that is still trying to list all of the Shaw Direct channels with National Lineup numbers. I notice some of the EAST and WEST US network channels still appear and then disappear. It sure is taking them a long time.

There must be more to just keeping all of the channels and simply changing the channel numbers.

Bayguy RR you are right you can't see all the descriptions at once but if you click on a program you will see its description, you don't have to go to another webpage.

RuralRouter Just checked Zap2It. ABC is now listed, but CBS is now gone - all Shaw Direct National Listing EAST. It appears that they are doing something. That is encouraging.

RuralRouter I just checked. Zap2It USED to have that customization, but no more. It was a good feature.
I wonder if my wife noticed - so maybe ontvtonight is not so bad, but still no NATIONAL LISTINGS.

Zap2It has customizable display of description or not within the one listing page
Where is that setting?

RuralRouter My wife hates clicking another webpage to see the program description. I don't mind, but Zap2It has customizable display of description or not within the one listing page. I have faith that Zap2It will be HEALED after Elliot, their Computer Geek, comes back from vacation.

Dr.Dave There isn't an option to sort ontvtonight alphabetically, but drag and drop works as advertised. They don't have Shaw Direct's National channel numbers yet, but they have Classic and Advanced. To see the program description, click on the program and a new tab opens with the info.

RuralRouter says that you may reorder by drag and drop channels on their CHANNELS page, then save. I have not tried it.
I am very disappointed that the website does not have the SHAW DIRECT NATIONAL EAST Listings, just the Classic.

Zap2It offers the option of which SD listing to use. Too bad it is on the fritz.

I do not see how to re-order the channels, eg by alphabetical listing; is it possible?
A lot of useful function was lost when they redesigned the site.
2019-09-01 01:23 PM

Zap2It is having a coding problem and if their regular geek is on vacation then we may have to wait another couple of weeks for the fix. I hope they have another geek from another department assigned to figure out and fix the problem in the meanwhile. Hope is fading fast...

It has been a long time since I considered other TV listing services, Zap2It always coming out on top.

I just signed up for
I do not see how to re-order the channels, eg by alphabetical listing; is it possible?
Is there an option to include the show description inside the box containing the name of the show?

Does anyone use another free internet listing service for Shaw Direct National Listings EAST?

Bayguy Oh thank you Lonsat. We haven't changed yet but we use Zap2it so we will look for that later.
