    I've was searching eBay for a second remote for a Bell ExpressVu system, and noticed that most of the auctions list the ExpressVu & Dishnet systems together.

    I then noticed that the receivers are exactly the same, other than the "Dish" or "Bell ExpressVu" logos.

    So my question is, are these systems the same? What's the difference between the two (other than a programming card, and perhaps dish-orientation)?

    Echostar builds the equipment for both companies and is Dishnetwork's parent company. The hardware is the same but not interchangable. Dish will not activate a BEV receiver and vice-versa. This is based on the serial number of the receiver.
