Please post in the monthly Events thread that is stickied. I noticed a red light came on today, but I do not now why. Shaw told me they could configure their router as a plain modem, so I was not too worried. There is a reset button on the back, but it is not obvious if it works. This did not have an immediate effect or I would have caught it sooner. Turning off Windows Firewall might make your computer and your network, if you have one more vulnerable to damage from worms or hackers. I think it's absurd that Shaw makes you pay for equipment to use their services like they always have for their digital cable platform.
There is a catch, you only have 30 days following a gateway install to take advantage of the upgrade, so I wanted to get this box setup quickly. The phones in the house work as normal. At this point I realized I should give the installer a diagram of where all my jacks were and what I want connected in each spot to simplify the conversation we were having. I had been watching the development of Multimedia over Coax Alliance for some time as it offered the possibility for multi-room with a traditional cable system. For this reason, London Drugs requires 3 to 5 business days to have the item s shipped to that location. Pace-don't be fooled with the one terabyte included in these pieces of shit.
I too miss Novus dearly. It did not take too long to notice the biggest flaw with the system. However, I am not an early-adopter. I think their biggest beef was actually getting someone to work with them on the problem. That was enough to convince me to place the order for the gateway. .
There are all the basic ports on the back including composite and component video output. The good news was that I had some spare component cables and the physical install was completed. This is beginning to become quite the bother. I found out about this totally by accident. One more item that contributes to my okay rating is the periodic freezing of the skip feature. That is not so helpful if you are trying to get to minute 25 on a 30 minute show.
I specifically wanted to avoid Shaw and Telus due to the way their support treatment. Equipment not purchased by you must be returned to Shaw if any of your services are cancelled. Now it was time to finish up the master bedroom. Shaw Reps and the Call Back Blacklist Perhaps for a last word, a comment on the various representatives from Shaw. There is one technology bonus I was not expecting.
It looks like it can do a lot more then is configured by Shaw, but it also seems to be a fairly old piece of equipment. Method 2: Temporarily disable the Firewall on your machine and check if it makes any difference. The portal seems fixed to 15 minutes. Example: Old Ip address is 192. You press the button, there is a small change to the timeline display to indicate a button was pressed, but it does not advance the program.
Clearly the installer could have used a bit more training on how some of the stuff works. Sometimes skip does not go anywhere. You can press a key and what you expect to happen is not what actually happens because the menu timed out and did something for you automatically. There should be nothing else connected directly to your router. If I hadn't checked the Service Status info after the Gateway update, I would have never known that the Portals updated a day earlier. They will be getting in the future near future.

It took a little while for me to figure out that there is no longer an exit button on the remote and no obvious way to get out of the menu.
