I have set up my apple TV. But, how do I switch back to watching Shaw cable?
Success!!! When all else fails, look at the TV manual. I had my DVD player plugged into the 2nd HDMI spot. So, I removed the DVD player and inserted the apple tv and now I have both apple tv and Shaw Cable.
Thank you very much for your assistance. It was very helpful to be able to talk to someone else about this and get some suggestions.
Using your Shaw Remote press 'TV' then Video Source on the bottom left, if you have the Shaw Atlas remote. Or use your original TV remote and press either "input" or "source" or "TV/Video" to get the TV back on the right input for Shaw Cable.
Hope this helps.
Let us know how it goes!

thank you very much for your quick reply. However, I have tried both of your suggestions and I cannot get Shaw cable back. Do you have another suggestion?
Were you able to locate any input or source button on your TV remote?
You may have to press it more than once to toggle through all the inputs. If that does not work you may be able to locate an Input or Source button on the TV itself on the side or top of the TV.
The other thing to check is the connection from the Shaw Digital Box to the TV is secure.
Can you tell if you are using an HDMI cable or a different type to connect the Shaw box?
Yes, I did locate the input/source button on the TV remote and I did toggle through all the inputs with no luck.
I am using a HDMI cable. But, could this be the problem: I have only one input for the HDMI and I had to unplug the connection to Shaw cable to plug in the connection to the apple TV. Should lI have 2 HDMI plug-ins?
Ah yes, that would be the issue.
The HDMI cable that you had to unplug is for your Shaw cable source.
Depending on your TV model, you may have more than 1 HDMI input (plug-in).
Do you know your TV brand / model#?
My tv model is Sony Bravia KDL-40V2500.
Ah, glad you figured it out, happy that we were of some assistance!
Just a last note In regards to your DVD player, I see that you have disconnected it...if you do plan to use it in the future, some TV's have an 3rd HDMI port located on the side as well, but if a 3rd HDMI port is not available you could instead use what is referred to as "Component" cables to connect your DVD player back to the TV.
These Component cable connectors are usually coloured Red/Green/Blue for video, and red/white (RCA) for audio. See this article for an example of component cables: https://community.shaw.ca/docs/DOC-1206#solution2
