    Shawdirect software upgrade

    My 830 updated to firmware 75.03 last night. Haven't found any changes in the menu or features so far.

    Shawcable DMX audio service

    I was on the roof of a shopping mall yesterday removing a 10 foot C-band dish that the owner wanted gone. While on the roof I noticed a fibreglass DTH dish that looked about 4 feet. It looked a little different than most DTH dishes so I went over for a closer look. There was a very faded...

    Shaw Direct upgraded my firmware to 72.48 last night. Anyone else?

    Shaw satellite signal

    I think the Digicipher encryption causes problems with many meters. Interestingly my relatively inexpensive Sathero 500 works with Shawdirect. I am confused how you are watching TV since all the channels are encrypted with closed key Digicipher?

    Weird

    One of the most busy news days of the year and channel 262 started having audio problems about 30 minutes ago. Of course all other news channels working flawlessly. Interesting

    Rogers buyout of Shaw

    I doubt Rogers will do anything different with Shaw Direct except for a name change. The infrastructure is already in place. Shaw Direct without question has a far superior picture with their STB's over Bell. It would be a shame if they moved to an inferior technology or over-compressed to make...

    lost signal on Shaw

    Glad to hear you got it working. I have always disliked the flimsy, poorly constructed mounts that Shawdirect and most other pizza dishes use. You nicely get the dish peaked, then the signal drops as soon as you tighten down the mount The one exception I found is the DirecTv SlimLine. I have...

    lost signal on Shaw

    Just to clarify, I meant that he doesn't have to buy the LNBF from ShawDirect. He could buy it from a dealer, e-bay, etc.

    lost signal on Shaw

    Those LNBF's in my experience are bulletproof, especially since no lightning was involved. Of course it is possible that the LNBF failed, however my guess would be alignment or a cable issue. If you do need a new LNBF,which I doubt, you can buy it anywhere. Just make sure it is for the 75e...

    ANIK F2 - Thy End Is Near

    Actually no. ESPN for example isn't available and there are many more. There are also Canadian versions of the American channels like HGTV, that have different programming.

    Weird

    I have Shaw Direct, and right now channel 262 is not working. Unfortunately this has been a very common occurrence lately. The funny thing is none of the other channels on the same transponder ever go off. Interesting

    LNB and Receiver in two locations

    Yes it will work fine. I would research how far the Satellite footprints reach before doing anything.

    Shaw satellite in Mesa, an update

    I do find it interesting however that Dish Network and DirecTv do not take any steps to limit their footprint into Canada.

    Shaw satellite in Mesa, an update

    I agree with most of what you say. I am sure ShawDirect would like the revenue but there are existing territorial rights for the programming. For example that Canuck hockey game you watch in Arizona on Shawdirect via TSN. The local broadcast rights will be owned by ESPN or some other USA...

    Shaw Direct Reinstallation issues

    The first thing you should do is immediately remove the photo of your unit ID. If you had a signal of 96 at the beginning, I doubt the trees are your problem. The dish seems to have a lot of skew, but that could be just the way the photo was taken.

    Can’t get Shaw to work any more

    For a reasonable fee, I am sure Mike would be happy to give you a phone call.

    Can’t get Shaw to work any more

    You already started 2 topics on this exact same subject. A few of us guys gave you some suggestions but you didn't have the courtesy to reply or give a simple thank you. Now you are opening another unnecessary topic. I have mixed feelings about Mike Kohl but he does know his stuff. He tried to...

    Cannot get a Shaw receiver to show satellite signal strength

    What kind of signal meter are you using? The reason I ask is those Shawdirect Turbo encrypted channels are hard to lock without a high quality meter. You mention that you get a signal strength of 82%. Is that signal level or signal quality? Give this a shot. Hook up your meter and then cover...

    Cannot get a Shaw receiver to show satellite signal strength

    Unless I am missing something here, it seems obvious that your receiver is bad. What do you get when you check the signal level and the EcbNo?

    Shaw Satellite Finder

    I use my Sathero SH-500G to align Shawdirect and it works fine. Yes, the signal bounces a bit more on the Turbo but it gets the job done.
