Shaw HD-PVR TV
from Gavin Soanes
To Activate a Shaw Cable HD-PVR box for your HD-TV on Protection Island, the Shaw
Technician has to know the following:
1. HD-PVR box has to be set by Shaw for one-way communication and not two-way (as
we are not currently able to receive Video-on Demand or Shaw Phone on P.I. because
SHAW signal to here is not currently capable of two-way communication).
2. Channel Map for P.I. is special #610 and NOT #601 which is for Nanaimo (other
than P.I.).
3. Tech says on initial Activation you cannot have a splitter in your coaxial cable?,
but after initial activation it is O.K. to have a splitter in the coaxial cable line.
I learned the hard way after several hours on the phone talking to countless Shaw
technicians. Don't let them tell you it's a signal problem, you need a booster/amplifier,
you need a service call, etc.(they told me I had to wait until Sept. 5 for a service
call to P.I.) Pro-Isle it turns out is unique for reasons 1 and 2 above. Hopefully
this will save you a hassle with Shaw and keep your blood pressure down!!!
