  1. Question about Cogeco HD channel problems

    Hello, I have a Pace HD DC550D receiver for Cogeco and today I've had audio problems on the HD channels. It's like the audio would "skip"/cut out for like a second at a time. It's hard to explain. I don't notice any pixelation problems though. Back in early 2013, I had real bad pixelation on a...

    I have Telus Optik TV. The router that I have has wired connections for a fast ethernet 10/100. I would like to put in a gigabit switch for my LAN and then connect it to the Telus router box. Is there any issues that I should be aware of before I start changing things?

  7. 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...

  11. Shaw analog slowly degrading? (No, hardware issue)

    Shaw Cable
    I've been using a home grown PVR (Mythtv with a PVR350) on Shaw for 4+ years now, and in the last few months have noticed a disturbing trend. Progressively more and more channels look like crap when recorded to my PVR and no amount of tweaking the hardware encoder has any effect. On these...

    I've noticed that some of the programming on channel 31 WNEDDT (most recently, an episode of Nova) is being transmitted in 16:9 but displayed in 4:3, cropping off the sides of the image. It's only been happening since the American channel went digital. Is there a setting on my Cogeco box that...

  16. Problem aligning image on Panasonic PT-AX200u

    HDTV: Front/Rear Projection Screens & Televisions
    Just got a PT-AX200u to replace my AE-300. My ceiling mount from the 300 wouldn't work, so I replaced it with a new Sonus universal mount. It seemingly hooks up nicely. The projector is connected to a Bell ExpressVu 9210 HD receiver via component cables. Exact same cable setup as the AE-300...
