DSR600 coming July 4th

Discussed in this thread several months ago.

This was posted by some first time posters who linked to a retail site. First time posters with links to retail sites violate our anti-spam rules so the posts were blocked. Since the information is consistent with our original rumours I have re-posted.

From a dealer website so can't verify the accuracy of this information.

Quote:
This new receiver will be released on July 4th on a first come, first serve basis. The main features this receiver brings are:

• Low cost - It’s never been easier to go HD with the new Essential HD receiver

• Ultra low profile HD/SD satellite receiver. The HDDSR 600 is 10’’ x 5,75’’ x 1.5’’ and weighs a little over 1lb.

• Essential connectivity via HDMI, composite and coaxial. Perfect for auxiliary HDTV’s or even the RV.

• MPEG-4 and 3DTV compatible. With the introduction of the HDDSR 600, Shaw Direct will be distributing an 100% HD and MPEG-4 compatible platform in the marketplace.

• Utilizes the same advanced software as the DSR605 with 14 day guide outlook, advanced search abilities, parental controls and more.

• Future ready for Ethernet based services such as Set-top VOD as well as 1080p broadcasts.

Other than size what's the difference between the dsr600 and 605?

I believe there is no component, optical or coaxial outputs. It probably doesn't have UHF remote capability.

DSR600

Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules by posting this image of the DSR600:

I assume this receiver will be able to view MPEG4 channels? If so, I think I might have to get one.

You assume correctly. See the first post:

• MPEG-4 and 3DTV compatible. With the introduction of the HDDSR 600, Shaw Direct will be distributing an 100% HD and MPEG-4 compatible platform in the marketplace.

another difference is the lack of a front panel display (channel/clock)
i'm just glad it greys out unsubscribed channels and has the option to hide unsubscribed channels a big bonus when setting up an elderly customer.

This receiver is electronically and softwarewise 100% identical to the core of the 605. It just lacks some outputs and connections, display (might/should have traditonal satellite indicator), and UHF remote.

It appears to add an RF modulator though, to use with older TVs.

It was bound to happen Hollywood want the component output removed from future receiver because it not DRM friendly.

If true, that would be great for feeding a 2nd TV in another room (like the 505 & 530).

now they need to enable the Esata ports from 605 because people who won't need UHF antena will buy this receiver instead of the 605
