[QUOTE=rlmack;2113063]My 622 reciever has been up-graded to recieve 1080 p signals.
The pay-per-view movies that you will be able to rent are on chanel 501, and appears to be 16 different selections.
On aother note, the dish tech was at my house yesterday to replace a cable on my dish. He stated that dish has put 3 new birds up that are off to the side of the existing ones, he did not know when these birds would be put on line, but did state that the 129 bird could not handle all of the HD chanels.
Maybe we will see some improvements in HD in the near future,
Actually, there are no 1080P “signals”. What Turbo will do is download movies to your DVR, and VOD will play them from there. It also will not work unless it recognizes a 1080P monitor connected by HDMI.
Also good to note that, as usual, your Dish tech was wrong. There’s currently one new bird that will effect HD programming, and it’s at 110 next to several other birds. It will allow Dish to proceed with a conversion to MPEG-4 on all channels, not just HD. There’s no published timetable for that change.
