What resolution should I have the Gateway box in for HD? I see the tech left it at 1080i? Should 1080p be checked as well? I read that Shaw only broadcast in 1080i?
Currently there are no 1080p channels available through Shaw or really through most providers as broadcasters have in the past opted to skip this resolution due to bandwidth concerns (twice the bandwidth of 1080i). Now it's basically been leapfrogged by 4k broadcasts which are slowly starting to show up, but that's another story.
The Gateway being set at 1080p if you TV supports it is going to be the best option because while there aren't any 1080p resolution channels, we do offer VOD content in 1080p. Having the Gateway set to that resolution will ensure you can play back any 1080p VOD titles.
Hope this answers your question!
Absolutely answers my question and thank you very much!
