Never had any problems

I bought the Shaw PVR at Future shop over 2 years ago. It is in use recording every day and have not had one problem with it. I will be buying a second one for an additional TV. Gateway isn't of value to me so I'm sticking with the PVR.

When you have no choice.........

I have not had any of the problems mentioned here. I have to admit however, I prefer the original PVR which finally died after almost 10 years of use. Everything seems to be an extra step with this new software. What was two clicks of the remote is now 3, what was one click is now two and so on. There are many things you just can't do with the new software: when watching a recorded show you can not view the guide or look at your existing list of recorded shows...the old box you could do this no problem. Pausing live TV also does not last as long as the old box. It keeps unpausing. To summarize my experience so far I would have to say the new PVR is not as convenient as my first generation PVR.

Annoying peice of junk

Bought this only because my media center computer would no longer work when shaw went digital, miss my media center a lot. Shuts off on its own , freezes , records the same show over and over, I have tried all the settings to change this behaviour. It does not respond when I give it commands, does its own thing sometimes. Makes strange sounds. I wish I had read the reviews first but I figured for the price it must be top notch...wrong. Media center worked perfect, thanks shaw cable.

Lasted for about half a day...

Bought this box on Dec 27, 2013 Finally today Shaw came in to set up my cable and activate the recently purchased cable box, 12 hours later I get the display 88:88 on the screen and it wont power off or reboot... Called them and had to book another appointment telling me I have a faulty cable box. Seeing all the poor reviews and others having the same problem as me, I wish I had never bothered spending $350 on it. Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT buy this box, its garbage.
