Digital vs Analog

2495 Views 10 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Shaw Guru
I'm a fairly new Shaw TV subscriber. I have an HDPVR box (the newer one needed to get NFL Sunday Ticket). I just have Basic Cable w/ HD Plus. They have the box set to be all digital, so any of the analog channels I don't pay for (Tier 1, 2, 3) don't come in on the box of course.

My question is.....can I call Shaw and ask that my Basic cable channels come in analog instead of digital? I'm not saying I want that, but just curious if it's even an option to go back to analog once they have it set to digital for all channels?

when you say "your digital box doesn't have an analog tuner", you mean the one I have specifically (the NFL sunday ticket one)? Cause I used to have an older version where analog channels came in.

analog tuner - this would be built into the TV yes?, so basically cable straight from wall to TV?
thanks. I was thinking of buying my friends Pace Tahoe, which has an analog tuner. When I call Shaw to add to my account, will they default the map to ananlog or digital? Can I specifically ask for the analog map, without sounding crazy?
there seems to be some channels that are only available via analog, correct? TV Guide, and channel 11?
