    Hi,

    Has anyone checked-out the "HD info" channel on the Bell ExpressVu channel guide? I guess the second satellite in online because there are now 9 channels(2 more coming soon)at 82 deg. and 3 at 91 deg. The 6000 receiver must be used of course, but is an elliptical dish req'd or a 2nd round one? They only say that a dual satellite dish is needed. Would the elliptical catch both of these signals (82 & 91 deg.)? Their website doesn't have info nor does 1-888-Skydish know all of the details. It might be time for us Canadians to get the HD hardware!!

    Ken

    I'll get the hardware when it's modernized and becomes more affordable. With a street price of about $700 for the antiquated model 6000 receiver, it's way beyond my tolerance range. If they could come out with a model 6100 for example at a price range below the current PVR units, then I'll consider it.

    Modern technology is suppose to be affordable. Not beyond our reach.

    Ken,

    Thanks for the link over at AVS.

    I had subscribed to this thread to keep an eye on the conversation as I'm looking into getting HDTV very soon.

    BEV seems to be the way to go as StarChoice doesn't seem to be very optimistic with their upcoming HD content.
