I contacted Shaw tech support and was advised "Shaw does not support receiving signal in the US."

Upon further questioning, it appears that if you contact them for any assistance when in the US they won't/can't help you BUT you can still get the signal and reception with both the 500 and 600 receivers.

So, don't request them to do an update as they will want to know where you are or at least say you are at home but rather use their automated update service and use an outside web site to get your satellite aiming angles and everything should work ok for now.

What Bell did was actually change the footprint of their signal so it doesn't go into the US
