There is a chart at the dbsforum site that shows 48 transponders each at 99, 101 and 103. 4* 144 would be 576 channels. Many of those are local and that space is probably used for other services like internet access.
Is this chart on that site correct.
I doubt that! Try buying a AudioQuest video cable that is mostly silver content.
It "may" hold up longer but will not improve the quality of the picture.
To each his own.
Some people haven't a clue!:nono:
This is a topic for a different (or new) thread, but I think you will find that you are in the vast minority on this topic. This has been debated ad nauseum, and the general consensus (among posters and experts) is that Monster cables and the like are a total waste of money. You can buy an equal quality cable for 1/10th of the price w/o sacrificing any picture/audio quality. This is true for everything from speaker wire to HDMI cables.
OK can anybody anwser this? Do I need HDMI cable or just component cables? Component cables is what I am using and the HD picture is astounding on the 70 channels, the sound is not bad either.
My equip.....34"Panasonic 1080i Tau HD Tube TV
Pioneer Dolby surround system.... not 5.1
If you're happy with what you have, then don't let anyone tell you don't like it. Use what you like, and that's all that should matter.
actually its been proven the more expensive cables are only really needed if you are running cables long distances. Standard 3-8 Ft cables have no diffrence at all in PQ and perform just as good as the expensive ones.
I certainly won't argue with you on that one.
I have both monster and the cables that came with the HR20 and their is no visible difference. I have a KDS60a2020 and believe me its calibrated to the most optimal picture. Their is no difference at all to me and most agree.
That's exactly my point, there is no visible (or audible) difference. It might be measurable on an oscilloscope, but not by the human eye (or ear).
I agree with your here but only if your running it over 15,20ft.
Componet vs HDMI you still should be able to see a little better picture q
Did your TV not come with any HDMI cables?
Dont go out and buy and MDMI monster Cables... standerd ones will work just fine...
+1 No need to get excited over the cable brand or price....geeez, we better get those channels going soon or people are going to freq out....
I rather HDMI over component there is a difference there in quality to me other than convenience but you should try both and see which one you like better,because it always comes down to your personal preference.
All this arguing about cables doesn't apply to HDMI, right? HDMI is a digital signal, right. So it doesn't matter what the cable is made of as long as the digital signal is not corrupt.
+1 I bought a $100 HDMI Monster Cable from Bestbuy with my TV (Hey I was new to HDTV) and to be honest I see no difference what-so-ever compared to the HDMI cable that came with my HR-20. Hey to each their own, I like the picture and since it's digital I really see even less of a reason expensive cables will be much better at 6ft. Go with what makes you happy, as I also think my $200 stereo is just perfect for me reach:
this info comes from a pdf file I downloaded from ILS. it shows far more available space than what Directv shows now. so I am assuming they just need to get them all working.
here is the info.
Platform: Boeing 702. Boeing 702 accommodates
larger quantity of transponders and boasts
the most advanced performance characteristics
among Boeing-manufactured spacecraft.
Payload: The powerful payload integrates 32 active
and 12 spare National Service Ka-band Traveling
Wave Tube Amplifier (TWTAs) in addition to 55
active and 15 spare spot beam TWTAs. Рowered
by a massive solar array that spans more than 48
meters consisting of ultra triple-junction gallium
arsenide solar cells. DIRECTV 10 will receive and
transmit programming with 11 Ka-band reflectors.
You'll hear people argue otherwise, but you are correct. Would your printer print better with an expensive USB cable? As long as the cable is in tact and of any quality at all, no difference between a $7 monoprice cable and a $100 Monster cable. In fact, if you compare them, they look identical.
