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?

you can still see your subscribed analog channels using an analog tuner on your tv. However, your digital box does not have an analog tuner.
Correct the newer PVRs don't have an analog tuner built in. The Older Motorola DCT 6412 and 6416 have the analog tuner. The DCT 3416 did not come with an analog tuner.
You'd also gain the Security Cam channels as well as the TV Guide channel.
