Just thought of something -- I am at work and want to schedule a recording for this afternoon on my PVR.
Is this doable remotely? Via an iPhone app or something?
Which PVR are you using?
The only one it is possible on is the Gateway, for people with the remote app... If you have the Gateway and have any friends with the beta test program, you might convince of one them to schedule it.
Otherwise, no other PVRs have this ability
We've got our Gateway remote recording app coming pretty soon (been in trials for some time now), but unfortunately there's no remote recording app for the 3510. I wouldn't say it's out of the realm of possibility though for this PVR.
Thanks guys! I may have to make a site visit to the PVR location to get this recording established. :-)
I use the 3510.
Had a great visit from a Shaw tech yesterday -- for the life of me cannot remember his name -
although he is 50-something, gray haired, has a passion for blues guitar and works faster than the speed of light...
which most Shaw techs do anyway.
Very thorough, efficient, diligent and friendly...
Ohh, I'm sure I can find out who that was. I'm sure he'd like the feedback!
Sent a message to your Community Inbox to grab your account details so I can check the service call and pass this along to the tech.
Please do as I want to continue our guitar discussion!
Many thanks --
It is these kind of experiences that put the "community" in the Shaw Community experience.
I hear a lot of trash talk on many of the big telecoms - but I dare them to match the service
that Shaw offers each and every day.
You got it
And thanks for your comments! We really enjoy helping where we can and making your experience the best possible.
I highly recommend you buy a SlingPlayer.
This will allow you to not only watch your PVR/Shaw TV/recorded Programs on your iOS/Android Phone/Tablet, but also allow you to control the Shaw PVR so that you can setup recordings.
It's a bit of a pricey setup initially, and the apps for phone/tablet are a bit pricey, but it works great and I have been using this setup for about 4 years.
I have 2 Slingplayers and all 4 apps (iOS Phone/Tablet, Android phone/tablet)
But the iPad app is the best by far of the mobile apps.
