Is there any way to watch shows recorded on the DVR on my tablet?
That's the kind of thing that I'm looking forward to, as that's really the direction TV viewing is headed. There's currently no solution for that now but for now there are options to watch television (live TV too) and other on-demand content on your tablet and other mobile devices through our selection of Apps.
Hope this offers you at least a partial solution for the time being.
Why doesn't Shaw support the ARRIS MS4000? This plugs right into the ARRIS Gateway and allows you to watch your live and recorded content anywhere...
ARRIS : Placeshifting Transcoder MS4000
Because the MS4000 only connects via the Ethernet ports, and Shaw has chosen not to enable that functionality...
But yes, I have wanted one of the MS4000 units when I heard about them at CES a few years ago lol
So enable the ethernet port
That was my thought too.. But from everything I've seen, 'ain't going to happen'
I've got the shaw go gateway app, but it doesn't give me the option to watch anything on the tablet - it just gives me a choice of gateway boxes...? What do I need to do?
Hello ladymistery. That is correct. The app allows you to access the Gateway to setup recordings remotely or select to start a recording on one of your Portals. It does not play any recordings or programming through the app, so you are not able to watch these on your tablet.
As previously stated, there is no Shaw method to do this at this time.
The Gateway App can be used to manage recordings, settings, and setting something to watch on a Portal
SlingBox is the easiest way, as there is no way from Shaw yet
Have to spend extra to get the tablet application though
