Do you have a optical/coaxial input on your system? Eg: cable, TV.I use a optical input on my Yamaha ( cable, satellite ). Look to see if there is a optical/coaxial output on your pvr, there should be. Use ether the optical or coaxial output from your pvr and connect it to the cable (satellite ) optical/coaxial input on your receiver. The manual that came with your Shaw PVR should explain how. You will get 5.1 surround if available on certain channels.I prefer optical over coaxial myself, but they both work well.If you don't have optical/coaxial inputs on your receiver, you will have to use RCA cables, analogue out on cable box, to tape input or aux on your receiver. You will not get surround sound, just stereo. But it's better than nothing.

I'm a customer of HDPVR with Shaw services! I have a Shaw Remote and I can't record or access previous recordings ! Other aspects of the Remote works (volume channels )How do I return to the services I pay...

Disconnect the PVR from the electrical power.
Reconnect it.
Wait 10 minutes, while it "reloads" its programming.
Press LIST. If your recordings are not showing up,
it's possible that the disk-drive inside the PVR has failed.

Telephone Shaw to get free technical support.

Shaw pvr expander not working

Take your Shaw remote control.
Use the LEFT/RIGHT keys to highlight PVR.
Click OK.
Use the LEFT/RIGHT/UP/DOWN keys to highlight PVR HISTORY.
Click OK.
Scroll through the entries, looking for any "hardware failed" or "hardware error" messages -- finding any implies a failing disk-drive inside the Expander.
Need more help? Telephone Shaw, and ask for "technical support" for TV/PVR.

Can't see image with shaw pvr on toshiba 32hl57

I presume you followed the instructions in the TV manual during hookup and did not hook up with the units powered up and did select the correct input with the remote?

If you have another unit that uses HDMI try a direct hookup with it to see if the HDMI input is working.

HDMI units do not like being hooked up when units involved are powered up and on--seen more than a few where this was the problem and it is worth a try if the Owner Manual does not help you.

Our shaw pvr recording symbols have now turned into snowflake shapes

Disconnect the AC power from the PVR.
Reconnect it.
Wait a few minutes for the device to "call home" to completely reset itself.
Then, press LIST to show the recordings, instead of those "asterisk" characters.
Failing that, telephone Shaw to get free technical support.

Sound drop with Shaw pvr box with hdmi. How do

This is a very common problem with no real solution. If your TV can be programmed to accept separate audio from HDMI video on the same input, you can feed the audio through standard RCA cables. Unfortunately most TV's do not allow this. Alternatively run them into a stereo receiver. Buying high end HDMI cables will not help. Most people I know with this issue have bit the bullet & just used component video instead. The difference in quality is minimal.

Our Shaw cable box,Pace PVR,continously BLANKS out for no reason,When it does the guide on the tv says to be anounced for a minute or more! Changing the channel or hitting the channel guide up usually sets...

I have had the same problem and I spoke to a tech at one of the tv repair shops in Edmonton. He says it is a long standing generic problem that Shaw is having with the HDMI connection between the pvr and tv's, I have a pvr replaced twice and the problem remains. The last Shaw tech says to use component cables and it will solve the problem which I believe is an admission that the problem identified by the tv tech is true. Doesn't help with 4 hdmi.and two component inputs

home theater setup- PC, HDTV, and Receiver I never post on these, but its been months and I can't take it anymore. I'm trying to use my plasma tv as the display for my PC, and use 5.1 sound with it through my receiver. However I don't use my PC for everything, so I'd like the smart TV to still work on its own and have audio from the receiver for that as well. Sounds simple, but trying to get things to work together is extremely difficult. I've found ways to rig it so that the speakers work, but its almost always just 2 channel audio and I'm looking for 5.1 surround. My PC hdmi output is HDMI 1.3 which doesn't support ARC so that isn't really an option. There's an alternate setup diagram for setting up without ARC that uses AV component cables, an optical, and an HDMI cable. This alternate setup actually worked but only for the sound, and now I can't get any video to come through. It looks like I may have to run the audio and video from the PC completely separate, but seriously??? In this day and age, I feel like that shouldn't be necessary and may be overlooking something. If I do run them separately, what would be the best way to do that? I also have a Creative 5.1 external sound card with optical out if I need to use that. Sorry if there isn't enough information in this post, there's a lot involved and I'm not sure what is relevant and what is redundant. I'd appreciate any help people can give me, each time I call support for a product, they blame another part of the system and say they can't help me. Please help, absolutely fed up with this thing.
