is this going to fata up my pvr at all? I will be in Thailand for a month and don't wanna miss all my shows...
Good question. My initial answer was going to be "no, because the PVR uses the program title", but on second thought, if you set it to record only on your HD channel (so you don't get a SD version too), then... I don't know.
Does anyone know if the PVR is smart enough to base it on the channel name instead of just the number? That way when the channel number changes, you won't have to change any series recordings. Hopefully.
Hopefully this is paving the way for them to add some more channels to the lineup.
The re-alignment has created a few gaps in the numbers...
Between locals and News: 213, 214
Between News and Sports: 216, 217
Between Sports and Education: 226
Between Education and Entertainment: 231, 232
Between Entertainment and Movies: 239, 240, 241, 242
I wonder if they forgot to move AMC because it doesn't really fit at 225 between Speed and NGTV?
Setanta is supposed to have an HD channel available as of August 1.
That is awesome. Shaw needs to offer that before the EPL begins.

From what I remember, this will NOT fata up your PVR series recordings unless Shaw also changes the channel identifier, i.e. as long as "TLCHD" or "CBSHD" or what have you remain the same, the recordings will be carried over to the new channel number.
Edit: Future Shop guys confirmed this.

I just checked out my the new lineup (via my Slingbox) and it looks like all of my scheduled recordings (series and one-offs) were preserved as many here had suggested.
Now... where does Sportsnet One fit into this equation when it is launched? 159 on digital and 217 on HD? I can't believe that I'm speculating what channel I'll be watching some of the games on... the season can't start soon enough!
