  1. shaw canada actually charges you for more than 2 devices? Just a heads up I have been using a similar (fantastic) system for 1 year no No slowdowns at all. On Android box. Take it from me nobody needs 8k channels.
  2. I have a name of a man who does this type of work but I cannot get through to him. his name is Ruben rubio. I have a number for him (cell) does anyone have where I can find him.
  3. I have been in Chapala 23 years and find you do what you can with what you need. I live on a pension from Canada most (Canadians know how much that is ) I was covered by private insurance when we first came here (ended up badly trying get reinbursed) it finally helped then but we can't afford the fee and then deductible and we all know it doesn't end there. We joined mexican government insurance and used it in Guad and everything was fine. We also used Ajijic Clinic overnight 3 days and meds and very reasonable. I understand peoples worries about the new hospital prices but look at it like they are not there and use them if you have no other option. There are hospitals and doctors cheaper than even the regular ones around if you look 200 pesos is still a fee for some in Chapala and even less if you just need a checkup.
  4. I need a metal worker to give me an estimate on a permanent carport. Any information from anyone on a reasonably good contractor. We are in Chapala
  5. I went to make an appointment for my van (in which they have parts I ordered and Paid for) and to my surprize the shop is closed and looks deserted. Anyone with any information on this.?
  6. Wondered if anyone knows what happened to Frats Auto shop. I went to make an appointment today and it is closed Looks deserted. They have some parts for my van I paid for and need.
  8. this is just some information of rummers of loosing shaw this year here is what I found Early in 2013, Shaw Direct launched their much anticipated G1 Satellite. Now fully operational, High Definition Local programming is now available throughout most of Canada. Unfortunately for anyone south of the Canadian border will not receive this Satellite. It most certainly will not reach Mexico. Shaw has already placed most of the Local HD programming on it and a number of NEW HD channels as well. Unfortunately we will not be able to receive any programming off this Satellite. We are still able to receive signal form their existing Satellites, F1 and F2. This is not expected to change until they are replaced. Since these Satellites have an average lifespan of 15 years, we should be okay for another 5 or 6 years. I do know that they have an interest in keeping some coverage for Mexico, so they may always have some channels available here, but this is just an educated guess based on my conversations with several Shaw Representatives that we work under. As to which channels will be moved to the new G1 Satellite, they have not made this knowledge public. We could lose some channels and gain others, there really is no telling. The reality is that we expect Shaw to continue working here in Mexico for the next 5 or 6 years. We just don't know for sure what channels we will get.
  9. anyone know how to Phone 800 numbers in Canada
  11. I am not a doctor also but I have experience that many people have not. I also see myself as a pretty good judge of Character and what I have seen is impressive as far as doctors are concerned in the Old Seville hospital. I have spent time in 2-3 other upscale hospitals and found them to NOT have the best patient client approach and private room or not the service is minimum. At PR there are trainees and they are involved with specialist doctors who are pretty good. I gave you some real hands-on feedback some people will like and others don't like to accept this type of service.
  12. As someone whose wife has used SG and we just signed up again for 3 more years we are happy with the system. My wife had an emergency hernia in her lower intestine and was in old Seville for 8 days and a pretty major successful operation with great doctors 6-8 of them. all spoke english well. we were charged a pretty small amount in comparison to private hospitals but we were charged and were very happy. The hospital is very old and old-fashioned, you need to have someone there 24 seven but the doctors are great.
  13. Actually, I am with a lot of others so unhappy losing Salvadors and the thought of going from a cosy quiet retirement area to a bustling overpriced small town is kinda outside my reasons for being here. I knew what we had here and was and still is happy to be in Chapala for the long term. I am way past hoping for future expensive growth in this lovely Mexican retirement area.
  14. I am down now in Chapala (Nuevo Chapala) I dial first 3 number s of any number here and it cuts off
