Hello. I've heard that shaw offers pvr extenders but I've had a heck of a time finding out info on where to order them. Can I please be pointed. Into the right direction? Do. I have to call or are these only. Available at Shaw stores?
Hi there dorian246,
We've actually discontinued sale of the PVR Expander units we used to sell, so at this time you'd unfortunately be limited to what is available second-hand when it comes to official Shaw expanders.
Good news though! You can use certain eSata external hard drives to expand the storage in your Gateway. We don't officially support this method (as we don't officially test these units and guarantee them to work) but please check out the discussions below for more information on third party PVR expanders.

Re: Is it possible to attach an external hard drive to the Gateway and watch movies recorded on the external drive?
Thanks for the response. I'll look into this much appreciated.
No problem dorian246! Have yourself an excellent evening. If you have any further questions, feel free to post here and we can help. There are also quite a few Community members that have their Gateways set up like this, so they may be able to chime in as well.
