    ExpressVu 9200 & External hard Drive

    Hi, This feature is on the 9242 only. The 6141 is said to be geting it also. No word on 9200 availability. Expect ExpressVU.....errr.... Belltv to abandon old receivers just like Dish does. Kryspy

    Bev HD vs Starchioce HD

    Satboyz, Video processors and processing technology improve from year to year. Look at video cards for PC's. I am not saying that the signals are any better. I flat out admit that Starchoice is most likely sending a superior signal at the moment. On my 9242 I notice less...

    Bev HD vs Starchioce HD

    Having just come from Starchoice to ExpressVU I can tell you that the difference in HD quality is negligible if not identical. For SD it comes down to the receiver; the 505 and 530 are old tech. The 9242 and the 9200 both do an excellent job on SD. Starchoice SD quality is horrible...

    Questions on HD Bell v. SC Mpeg4 and receivers

    My take, I've owned both..... ExpressVU is getting more and more compressed as they are stretched to the max for bandwidth right now........hence the name CompressVU If you own a 1080p set then SC is a nice choice at 1080i as the TV then just de-interlaces and shows it at 1080p as...

    Star Choice Digital Basic Questions

    I bought a refurb 530 for $299 and it has been very reliable. Nice thing is that you can upgrade the hard drive if you wish with any Seagate IDE drive. Some folks have a 750 GB drive in yielding 137 hours of HD content to record. The 505 is a nice unit; the R5000 mod is a possibility...

    Thinking of switching from *C to Expressvu

    Well, I have had both; twice. When I was with ExpressVU I had the 9200 (942) and it was a really nice machine; better than the 530 in most areas. Having said this I prefer Starchoice because their service is better and HD is output in 1080i vs. ExpressVU at 720pish and I mean ish...

    Starchoice power recycle issue

    Starchoice will most likely offer a refurb. I have a refurb and it has been fine for 6 months now. This is common with the 530 and shouldn't be a problem as long as your broker is willing to go through the hassle for you as they will most likely want to go through a whole bunch of...

    You need a replacement... flash memory has most likely had it and that is where the OS resies. Kryspy

    PVR repair

    hab, You can replace the hard drive but it has to be the exact same model right down to the version and revision. Here is a list of the 9200 diagnostics. The 5200 is pretty much a non-HD 9200. Memory dump, Hard drive formatting and diagnostics shortcuts This has been requested many...

    Bell ExpressVU testing MPEG4 stream on 82W

    "Half of 82W transponders are cold. If they will turn it on ... " Need to remember that the original Nimiq 2 suffered a power supply problem shortly after laubch abd therefore isn't capable of utilizing all of the transponders. Kryspy

    Bell ExpressVU testing MPEG4 stream on 82W

    "Folks who want these channels will be able to upgrade their MPEG4 receivers (which they will have to pay for)". Scott, Lucky for me I threatened to leave a couple of months back and secured a sweet deal to stay which consisted of a note on my account that I will not be charged to upgreade...

    SC to start 8PSK HD

    HDTVFanAtic, No, 4xx series receives are not compatible either. I doubt the free swap out will apply either to the 4xx series people. Kryspy

    Bell with 3rd Party Receiver?

    I think you actually can use one of the DVB PCI cards with a cam add-on board as long as you are using a currently activated smart card. This is what I have heard but I could be smoking a ton of crack. Kryspy

    Ebay problems?

    When I sold my 6000 way back in the day Dishnetwork cancelled my auction for the same reasons. I called Dish and got connected to the signal integrity dept. and basically gave them my ebayID and told them I was Canadian and asked them to kindly mind their own business :) I reposted my...
