I have an option to choose SD or HD in the on demand TV guide but it is not available when I pick the show, only SD. How do I choose HD?
You must be a member of Shaw Friends, and have an MPEG4 terminal to watch the prime-time shows in HD
We made a big change with the new HD Guide. When the same channel broadcasts in both SD and HD, we overlay the HD channel on top of the SD channel.
To take an example from HD Guide - HD Grouping, CBC Vancouver is on both channel 3 and 209. With the New Guide, the HD version is now on channel 3 only.
But if you're like me and you predominantly watch HD channels, you can turn on HD Organization to group all of the HD channels together. On your Shaw remote, push either MENU or SETTINGS, scroll down to to HD Organization, then to HD Grouping, and then it to ON.
When we are in info in the Primetime TV and look at Grimm and pick an episode you are offered HD or SD. When you press OK you are offered Cancel or SD. SD is the only button that works and the picture is not a full screen and it is lower quality than HD. What do we need to do to fill the screen with a good HD picture?
