    Need new ExpressVu 5900

    Thanks for the help. I went to Kusat and ordered a new 5900. The reason ExpressVu will not rent receivers is because they don't have company installers in PEI so they are afraid of fraud. I realize I am on shady ground having a ExpressVu account in the USA but this was the most legitimate way to...

    Need new ExpressVu 5900

    My 5100 is slowly passing away. I spent 3 hours with the tech's at Bell. It sounds like the hard drive is going. I can watch live tv but if I try to record it locks up. It also locks up sometimes when I am watching in a recorded program. Bell offered a a exchange for a reconditioned 5800 $150.00...

    In the USA, Dish older PVR's (DVR"S) 501, 508 & 721's do not have a monthly fee. Newer models like the 510, 522 etc have a $5.00 per receiver monthly charge. The monthly charge is waived if you subscribe to the 120 or higher package. Does Expressvu charge a monthly fee for any of their...

    As you may have read I have a cottage in Prince Edward Island Canada. I was there a couple of weeks ago & purchased a 3100 system. I also owned a 5100 PVR receiver.

    Thanks for the answers! Since I am pressed for time I decided to buy the receiver from a Charlottetown Radio Shack store. The price is $99.00 with free installation if I agree to sub to 2 years of service. The Radio Shack Sales Associate said that only a single LNB dish comes with the package...

    New D* Satellites for Local HD

    It is my understanding that D* is launching several new satellites so D* can offer local HD stations. I have a few questions: 1) How many satellites (and how much do they cost) to service the entire US with local HD? 2) Why bother with all the individual locals, why not just a "national"...

    Where can I buy Expressvu on Prince Edward Island?

    I own a cottage on PEI. I would like to get Bell Expressvu installed. I have a 5100 Bell receiver that needs the new smartcard. It works fine as I have it hooked to a Dish but it only receives the preview stations plus the Canadian "Biography Channel". I figured I would buy a cheap system in PEI...
