    Connecting DISH to NETFLIX

    Currently I watch Netflix downloads on my HD set via my computer using S-plug & stereo. Looks great. Any chance that DISH will allow it's internet connection to be used for downloading NETFLIX directly to my set? I read that set-top boxes are coming soon for this purpose. That's why I'm not caught up int this Blu-ray thing. The future appears to be digital downloads on a hard drive played through your TV.

    I would guess no. They want you to use your ethernet connection to buy their movies. You might be able to pull it off in the future if they add some of the Slingbox technology to their boxes. Then you could probably stream it from the PC to the box over a home network.

    Hi, I am curious as to the audio quality on these downloads, is it Dolby 5.1 or better??

    I'm sure Dish wouldn't mind allowing this, but it's Netflix who likely won't.

    What resolution are movies from Netflix online? I would be interested in this since I have an HTPC hooked up to my set.

    I think the resolution of netflix depend on the speed of your internet. I don't think it has more then stereo sound. I use my laptop connected through VGA and they work great. As for dish, I doubt they would allow it since they are starting their dish online feature. Right now it is only PPV movies and no HD, but hopefully they will offer PPV HD movies as well as free tv shows and movies including HD soon, much like Comcast does with their on demand service.
