Are all turbo-coded 8psk channels DVB-S2 or are they just DVB-S. According to genpix electronics there skywalker-1 is capable of receiving turbo-coded 8psk but not compatible with DVB-S2 FEC. Does that mean it can't receive DN HD channels. Here is a link for more info http://www.genpix-electronics.com/index.php?act=viewDoc&docId=9
Then why have I personally seen the skywalker 1 used with a cw3000. Yes they are getting DN HD with the 3000. Why do they sell them as a package deal. You outta know what your talking about before you tell some one it isn't true.
shlitz, you are right. What I was trying to say is CW3000 itself isn't good enough to get HD on dish but BEV will work just fine. You will need an extra gadget skywalker-1 that will enable dish HD. Genpix is selling it as a combo. If not, skywalker-1 itself cost $3oo. I have 1 and currently using it on my pc.
I emailed genpix and asked them when they will have them in stock and he said 1-5 weeks. I was able to sell my crap VS9000 so i gave them my money to be first in line when they do become available. they have a good return policy so if it doesn't work its no big deal but i do think that it might only be compatible with MyTheatre 3.38 (not earlier versions possibly)it said it was compatible with other software like Dream but will the Mpeg 4 be an issue with mytheatre cause it doesn't support that yet and that ones my favorite.
Your definatly doing your homework. I read in MT forums that it does'nt support mpeg4. I dont know how that all works, handled by software,hardware or videocard but I like dvbdream equal to mytheatre if it works for you. How much $ from genpix? I'll be anxious to know how that turns out.
I have a 7800GT vid card connected to me TV via composite video the vid card i know will work maybe i will just use dream for DN HD until mytheatre 4 comes out. I'll let you know how it works out. oh and the genpix is $299+shipping and as far as the other thread the DVBTech 8psk is $275 but if you said that you have to get an external dvd player and set it aside then your right back to 300 so i would say waiting for the genpix is probably a better idea.
