Yes they make it themselves, the RCA and Phillips units are made by them as well.

RCA is supposed to start making their own, but that has not happened yet.

The only difference between JVC, Phillips, and the new RCA models at wal-mart and RS are the smart card doors! They come out of the same plants with the same parts!

Keith,

Can I have your permission to add your post to the EKB with proper credit given? Since the demise of the old echostaruser.org and dish network's removal of this information we've not had a page with this information available on a "permenant" basis.

See ya
Tony
For the life of me I will never understand why people will pay hundreds and thousands of dollars on a TV that provides the clearest, sharpest, most realistic picture possible and then, voluntarily, distort the image!

Credit for this goes to Rlj5242 at AVS, a compay called SCI is the one that actually manufactures the units for E*.

Quote from press release from June 7, 1999
SCI manufactured EchoStar's first satellite TV receiver three years ago and has since been involved in manufacturing EchoStar's next generation satellite TV receivers.

Do they also support cascading SW44/SW21? Do they all have 129 on the dish pointing screen to allow the SW64/SW21 cascade for viewing 4 satellites?

And we still don't know what a Blonder Tongue is.
I never cared for all the signatures that insult posters with other points of view.

Blonder Tongue Labs makes CATV and SATV stuff, so it's possibly a box for cable companies using Dish as a channel source?

QPSK/QAM seems to be their big thing currently (http://www.blondertongue.com/) but they make tons of stuff.

Their model 6189A is a QAM transcoder compatable with E*
