HITS upgrading to dvb s2 technology
I've just read that Comcast hits will be upgrading to dvb s2 technology. They are starting it on the 2nd quarter of this year and will be replacing over 70% of their sd transponders. This is bad news for 4dtv users still subbing to srl. Thank goodness Glenn is building us that new subscription receiver,lol

That won't be nice! I got this H2H box about a year ago for my mom and her Picker shows on History. I don't think this receiver will do S2.Icon 550, Vantage 1100HD (thanks Stogie) on .90M primestar DG380 motor.10'Sami+GI650 for c-band.
CS5000 now on 1m primestar-polar mount backup system.

At some point it makes sense for Comcast to just replace the hardware at the mom and pops cable systems and then its good bye.

Goodbye C band Subs
Well, If they do, I hope they enable one to use the equipment of their choice. I.E. via a CAM card.
If the receiver is $900+**, sounds like they are going the ONE PROVIDER route, probably PowerView. At that price they won't see much, if any, demand at the consumer level.
