I live in southern Manitoba, in St Andrews off of Highway 9, I only have TV and Internet service in my area. I am looking at the Gateway and 2 portals but everything I have read says you need Shaw Phone service to make this work. I tried to get a HDPVR but it is not supported in my area either (an older model with less storage space is available only, not what I wanted to hear, it was a Pace unit with 160GB for $198.00). I am running internet in one room and a HD TV in the living room and a HD TV in the master bedroom.
So my question is, is there a way to have it work over the internet only, I think Shaw would be looking at this as they would probably have more of these units in service. I am a fairly new Shaw customer (just over a year and a half) and I have been waiting to be able to get this in my area since I started.
