You sure are good at speaking for everyone else.
Hmmm,. I think I have seen you doing that over in the Dish forums. If you can't remember, do a search.
Any discussion about HD channels will necessarily include some example of what other providers are carrying and don’t have to be considered trolling.
Let’s keep to discussing points and information and move beyond motives and posters.
If anyone has a problem with a post please report it rather than replying to it.
I’m just sayin’
That isn't a word!
I think they meant "Oprah" and "Harpo" which is her studio.
People talk about this service offering these channels in HD or that service is better the another. That is important but so is what equipment is offered. After all this time Verizon Fios is still pushing its 40 hours HD dvr, I am not sure what size Dish has, but D* has large drives in its dvrs and that is as important or maybe even more so then how many hd channels are there. If you don't have the capacity to record it, why have it.
That is all a very good point, and often overlooked as you pointed out.
For purposed of this thread....I guess we're coming upon the end of the 4Q, and other than the additions Satracer forecast for this coming week, I suspect that's all we're going to see tied to this period of time.
Additions (plural) ? Anything besides HBO on Demand SD ? My understanding is the other possible HBOs HD and the on demand HD are not coming this year.
FWIW, Fios is beta testing their new software which makes dramatic changes to the GUI (including an HD option), their first native display capability and external eSata drive support.
It will probably not be fully national until mid 2011 but they are working on it. I find their DVR decent but not great. It has been pretty reliable and while the graphics are very detailed, the capabilities are relatively basic.
Your understanding is basically correct.
C'mon Hdtvfan, your "basically" makes me curious...
You may be curious...but your also still correct.
And lets not forget MRV.
I just hope in Q1 2011 we will get The Headline News In HD with Robin Meade to make my wife Happy as she likes that News Show!!!
Yeah riiiight. :sure:
She Really Does and I occasionally might watch it too!!!
Robin Meade would make me happy too.
That is what I am starting think about D*, why have it. The dvrs do have a large drive, with lots of capacity record on it. But mine is being unused, because everything I want to record is in SD. If Verizon Fios with their 40 hour HD dvr was in my area. It would be used more then my D* 100 hours HD dvr is.
