How do you stop the pvr from displaying the channel number every once in a while? I really hope SHAW fixes the bugs with this pvr, provides an update of some sort, or offers a better solution such as a better PVR!!!
Thanks for confirming that for me. This is something that's known to us. I can't give you a time frame for this particular issue at the moment unfortunately, but we do know that this can occur.
my observation - if you PAUSE live TV, then later resume watching the show but do NOT change the channel, every 10 minutes from the point in time you un-pause live TV, the channel number will pop up momentarily. Surely a bug.
Perhaps this is what you are seeing?
this his has been happening since long ago, and I just tested it and confirmed it still happens after the November update.
Sorry for the delay answering your post ratherdisturbed. Can you clarify where you're seeing the channel number? On the front of the box when the unit is turned off, or on the screen when you're watching TV? If it's on the screen, is this channel number showing in red?
The channel is showing on the screen as I am watching tv. Its blue, not red. I have noticed that it seems to only happen when you are watching a recorded program, or if you pause Live TV (as bcb mentioned above).
I am having the same problem, and it only started in the last week after the update was pushed to the unit. For me, every 10 minutes after tuning to a live TV channel, the channel appears on the screen. If I do anything (check the guide without changing the channel, press the info button, press play by accident when it is already live tv) then it is 10 minutes exactly from that point.
