Digital Cable & Dish 811
Posted 09 February 2006 - 02:33 PM
My question is: If I get Digital Cable (and a Cable Receiver) from my cable company, can I then run the same type of setup that I have now? I want to get some digital stations that Dish does not offer. Will the 811 still be able to receive the signal from the cable company receiver and then allow to watch the channels via Dish? Thanks.

No, you will not be able to control a digital or HD cable box integrated through your 811's EPG. However, you could feed a regular cable box through the 811's back panel Video 1 or 2 inputs (composite only). The tuner would however still be separate and would not be integrated into the 811's EPG.
