    I wanted to know if the Google TV guide for television would work if the box were setup as USA in Canada? I would change the DNS to get US content and setup the box as USA for american apps like primetime. Would a google tv box that has been purchased in the US work with Shaw DVR boxes and channel guide?

    Hope this makes sense :)
    Thanks

    You could enter a 'fake' USA zip code into your GTV settings - this would allow you to get the TV listings for that USA zip code - however you won't be able to utilize a channel guide for a Shaw DVR box. GTV doesn't support the channel guide in Canada.
