Has any one clue about Coolsat 8000? It is supposed to be HD capable. Quick search on Google tells that it is $399. But the website looked fishy!
 
Pansat 7000HD, Coolsat 8000, and the Neusat SP8000 are all suppose to be HD, they have been saying they are coming out for about a year now, no one has seen them yet, so I guess we must wait, the new Pansat 2800A is out, nothing special and no HD.
 
well i also did a search from a major search engine and it listed two sites but when you goto both of those sites they are just about setup the same way and have locations in the same towns and list the same phone # on each web ... so it did look fishy and haven't seen anything about a CS8k

one of these sites links to the other in showing a
CS7100 PVR dual tuner FTA STB
CS800 HD FTA STB stated comming soon

another site not related to the first two memtioned list a cs7k & cs8k due out in 2007
 
Pansat 7000 HD will be out in March 2007 for sure is what I got from the horses mouth from the CEO of Pansat USA in Calif cuz I had to go there to Sun Valley, Ca to get some units fixed and happen to see and talk to the CEO Kim there and he told me that Pansat will have their HD unit out in March 2007.
 
I don't know when these receivers are coming out, but they'll be delivered by the Great Pumpkin.
 
When the HD boxes do come, they won't come cheap. The hack community is going to be 'all over' these boxes, besides us legit users.

That being said, I want one in a Coolsat flavor - lol.

I didn't understand the (Europe @ 50hz) part... are they saying that it ONLY supports 50hz framerates, or supports them as well as North American 60hz rates?

Given that is is supposedly ATSC, it should be compatible with the North American standards though...

If it's real, put me down for one :)
 
It looks like something I'd be all over... but it sure doesn't 'look' Coolsat. It looks like a Viewsat.

The specs don't mention DVR functionality but the fine print on the front reads:

Digital Broadcast(ing?) Satellite Reciever
Common Interface Personal Video Recorder


It just seems kind of fishy. Add some kind of guide via the Internet and maybe a QAM tuner and they'll sell 'em to folks who could give a crap that it does DVB too if it's the real deal.

what about the cpu speed and the ram?
 
A little Googling, and I found this for $429 from a dealer:
>> Coolsat 8000HD TScombo Receiver
This will be the first High Definition Free-to-Air receiver to hit the North America market.
The release date is second week of January.
Due to the weight and size of this unit, S&H is $20.00 within U.S. & PR.
Update: The first shipment will not have USB Port.
So, that'd be $449 delivered.. but no USB port???
Well, 'till you see it under your Xmas tree, it's still just a figment of someone's imagination. :rolleyes:

Wait! $400 and no hard drive?
Never mind... :(
