  1. Recording Hockey

    Telus IPTV (also known as Optik TV)
    ...another newbie question.:D Trying to set up Optik to record all Canucks games across various channels- Sportsnet, CBC, TSN, etc. It appears to me that there are only two options- Search (tedious), or record via guide (more tedious). The problem is that the Search function is only looking...
  2. DCT 6200 no guide

    My dct6200 taken off line in April, left on my account but shown as inactive, was plugged in last week. All the channels were there, surprised me as according to Eastlink (DeltaCable) it was inactive. There was however no Guide function or information on programming. I have reloaded the software...
  3. Motorola ASTB upgrade last night

    Shaw Cable HD tuner and HD PVR Discussion
    Last night a new version of firmware was sent out to all Motorola advanced set top boxes in all regions (except Vancouver). The upgrade was completed in Vancouver with few incidents a couple weeks so there should be few for most customers. Firmware updates should be the following on most...
  4. Searching and navigating through the guide

    Bell Fibe TV
    I am new to Fibe TV and I had a question about the program search feature. I noticed that the search results are only showing me 2 days (today and tomorrow) of results. I was expecting the search to provide results for the next 14 days. Is there a setting I'm missing that would provide more...
  5. Problem with the guide

    Bell Satellite TV
    I subscribe to Al Jazeera since last week and since I have it, the on-screen guide is one hour ahead of time for this channel. Is it the same for everyone?
  6. What do YOU do to record an episode only once?

    Shaw Cable HD tuner and HD PVR Discussion
    Hey everybody, I know there are several ways to record a program with repeating episodes throughout the week ONLY ONCE, but I'd like to hear if anyone has any better / easier ideas than I do. For example, let's say I want to record a program like "Rescue Me". There are a few problems... 1)...
  7. Videotron Rant Thread

    I am glad I found this discussion forum. I have been a Videotron customer for 5 years. Now that I have my HDTV it is getting more and more frustrating to subscribe to Videotron. I have no issue with their product or service qualities. My problem is their lack of choice, particularly on HD...
  8. DSR-319 Guide Troubleshooting

    Shaw Direct Satellite
    Hey Everyone, I have a SC/SD DSR-319, and I have been having trouble setting my guide up the way that I want it. I know how to "Modify" my favorites, and save them. What I want to do is, for the channels that I don't get, I don't want them to come up on the guide. That's no problem...the...

    Bell Satellite TV PVR, HD PVR and HD Receivers
    Hi there, I'm new to the forum so my apologies if this question has been answered already...I did try to search for it but came up empty. The hard drive in our 5900 PVR died a few nights ago (with over 30 hours of my favourite half-hour show :( so we bought a 9241 and got it up and running...
  10. shaw guide - don't show channels that are not available

    Shaw Cable
    Just got shaw digital and have the dtc700 box. Is there a way for the guide to filter out all the channels I don't get and only show the ones I do get? Thought I could do this using "Favourites" but the problem is that when you press guide, it starts with all channels showing and then pressing...
  11. MTS HD Themes/Interests Problems

    Has anyone switched to MTS HD service and noticed that you can no longer search by Themes or Interests? (like sports, movies, etc.). It seems pretty crappy that they removed this feature. All I want to do is see what movies are playing on my 250 (or whatever) freaking channels (yes I have 9...
