Post by pappabee on Thu Jun 15, 2017 1:40 pm

If you have a 500 series or older receiver, you will loose channels as they upgrade to MPEG-4 compression. You will need a 600 series computer.

Agreed. Pete does this mean we will be able to receive our signal beyond the projected 2 years?

That is the question I would love to know the anwer to.. I guess ther eis no guaranty in life sine they do not care about Mexico. The 600 is 4500 pesos or something like that which makes it less than 200 pesos a month if it dies in 2 years...

I heard that eventually Shaw will be giving up the old satellites on which we  get our Shaw Direct channels. And that one of the reasons they are compressing the HD signals and getting rid of the duplicate standard definition signals is so that they can eventually place all of the signals on the one newer satellite which we can not receive in Mexico. Others have posted that this is totally wrong. Although I disagree with them, I hope they are right and that I am wrong.

If your Shaw account with someone other than Shaw Direct you have a problem. Get your own account. Contact Ajijic Electronics or CP Electronics in Guadalajara.

David Is the "problem" you refer to merely one of the headaches caused by having to deal with a third party or are there technical glitches?

No tech glitches I know of. The problem is people have been caught out by Shaw, then everyone loses. Have your own account, make your own choices.
