Just got the new Galaxy system and am still getting use to it.
Is there a way to set up reminders for shows because I can't seem to find it!
Reminders is on the roadmap in the future to be added to gateway. Unfortunately its not available today.
By Galaxy TV, are you referring to the Gateway system, the one with the central Gateway unit and a portal on each TV?
In that case, we have a document on setting up recordings at Overview of PVR recording on the Shaw Gateway. But as for setting up reminders, we'd need more details on what you're trying to do before giving a yes or a nay on reminders.
Yes that is the system I am referring to.
I am wanting to set up a reminder of when a show is on. On the old system it was an icon of a bell. And when you set this reminder while you were watching other shows the reminder would come on the screen indicating that the show is about to start.
Thanks for your help again.
Great question, unfortunately there is no way to set up reminders on the Gateway as on traditional cable boxes. I think that when the Gateway was designed with six tuners, it was assumed that there wouldn't be many cases where you would be unable to set to record any program you wanted, so reminder notifications wouldn't be needed as on traditional cable boxes (unless, of course, you want to watch an event or program live).
We as well would like to see the reminder functionality on the gateway/portal system as we use it to remind us of shows coming up, so we can change to that show.....
Reminders will be in the next release of gateway code
will be coming in the new year.
Thank you all for your help
Being able to set a reminder for an upcoming TV show or movie should be an inherent part of the cable experience. To not have that ability available in the gateway system seems to me to be totally irresponsible. Rarely, if ever, would I require recording up to six programs simultaneously, but being able to set one or more reminders should have been a no brainer, and automatically included in the gateway system..
