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.

Can you use a different output on your shaw?

Like for example try component video and optical audio cables instead of HDMI, or vice versa.

Or call shaw, tell them their product is garbage and you will quit shaw if they don't send you a new one free and give you 3 months discount price. (I'm serious, do it)

How do we connect our system using a Shaw PVR


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.

Shaw pvr expander not working


Take your Shaw remote control.
Press SETTINGS.
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.

After purchasing a PVR machine from Shaw cable, our Samsung series 6 51" LCD tv requires having the source output on HDMI3. Is there a way to change the " TV " button on the remote to...


We had this same problem on our Samsung 5 series. What we ended up doing was leaving the PVR plugged into HDMI 3 and renamed HDMI 3 to PVR. If you go to your source list and hit the Tools button (i believe its Tools) you should get the option to rename or give a nickname to a particular source.

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

I have the same situation....what I have done is connected my Blue ray to the TV via the HDMI connection and the audio to the RTDVD1 via an Optical cable. I find this is the best connection and sound reproduction so far. The input of the RTDVD is the SAT/Optical input and then switch the source to SAT/OPT. You will have to make adjustments in the BlueRay player's audio setup to enable the 5.1 DB digital sound etc.

You need to turn on closed captions through the menu of your PVR. To have it on all the time, turn the box off, press menu on the front of the box, and scroll down to captions.
This should fix the problem
