DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PVR!!!!!
My old PVR finally bit the dust, i am now however trying to get it repaired so I can send this new one back. I have had it for 5 months,1 visit from the SHAW installer and 2 from the tech plus numerous and I mean numerous calls into tech which all they do is re-boot it. It records shows without sound, it records shows that are reruns even tho you have it programmed for new shows only, it records and the program is pixilated, on some channels you rewind live TV and it pixilates to the channel you watched previously and it is no where near user friendly like the old one. I found out by a SHAW employee that SHAW used to use a third party software company for their PVR's software now with these new ones SHAW decided that they were clever enough to write their own program.....rest assured they can not. But I do give them extra credit for their cute effort in trying. There are so many more things wrong with this [$price] piece of abomination but I think you get the idea by now.
