Can you still watch live tv while recording 3 or 4 programs on the gateway portal?
Yes, there are 6 tuners or incoming channels on the Gateway, with 1 Portal, can record 5 stations while watching a 6th live
Thank you , another question, can you install it yourself or does Shaw have to do it?
The Gateway comes with a free professional installation from Shaw and that is required to set it up with our system, due to the technology involved and how it operates.
Okay one more question , the Gateway main unit can it be placed in any room ?
Yes, generally speaking as long as there is a cable outlet in the room and a power outlet nearby.
some advise, you may want to choose a room or location that isn't a common area. The fan can get noisy when it rev's up to cool the hard drive etc.
most common places are in the basement, or a room that doesn't interfere with sleeping or viewing
kevinds is correct, with the Shaw Gateway it allows you to record up to 5 stations while watching a sixth show live. The recordings are set from your remote via the Gateway portal but are stored on the main Gateway unit, which has the mentioned 6 tuners inside that support this:
