For the past week, we’ve been trying out a new Gateway Whole Home HDPVR from Shaw Communications.
The state-of-the-art television-viewing system allows you to record six shows at a time and watch your recordings from any TV in your house. That’s one of the big selling points Shaw has been getting across with the device, which retails for $498 with two total home portals ($14/month to rent).
The brains of the system — the Gateway — acts as the hub for the portals, which pull the information to your TV.
The Gateway Whole Home HDPVR is pretty quick to pick up user-wise if you’ve used some sort of PVR in the past. The menus and guides make it easy to navigate what you want to accomplish while watching your favourite TV show.
