All of the existing Motorola boxes (DCT64xx/3xxx) already have this capability; it just requires a software upgrade from Shaw's end.I have heard talk of a new model PVR that uses a difirrent interface that if Shaw does launch it has an online option that you can add and change recordings. Again I'm not 100% sure if Shaw will be going with this newer PVR or not or when it will launch. If I do hear anything I will post it in the forums.

Ummmmm....doesn't sounds too awesome to me - sounds like an additional expense!In the Q1 results conference call yesterday it was mentioned that a new box will be coming out in the spring, they said it is a 'media gateway' that will lead frog the competition. Apparently it will have a new gui, up to 6 dct's will operate independently but be able to stream shows from another dcts pvr, it will also allow photos, videos, etc to be streamed from any pc/laptop, etc in the home. They wouldn't confirm the manufacturer but indicated that they have been working with this well known manufacturer for a little over 6 months.
Regarding the comments made from the Q1 Conference Call, the connection type has not been announced yet, it will however be new equipment, remote recording is a feature coming down the pipe too.Ummmmm....doesn't sounds too awesome to me - sounds like an additional expense!
Not totally clear, but if MoCa was enabled on the current crop of Moto boxes, we'd be good to go??
