The 209/319 are the same receiver (from a chipset perspective) and work/perform the same way.
It is just the 209 is in the smaller case, has fewer outputs, no modem or front buttons, and have an external plower supply, just like the 205 and 207.

The guide is identical.
The 317 was slightly faster than the 207, so I assume the same applies to the new models.

Dsr209 vs dsr319
Is there any benefit aside from the digital audio option to get the DSR319 over the DSR209? Is the guide visually any different (better or worse)? Also, is the speed of the the channel changes any different?

|classicsat||Amongst other things (mostly DVB-S2, or at least MPEG4), the 605/630 will support full HDMI and hopefully HDCP, which the current HD receivers do not properly support HDCP through repeaters.|

DVI still provides 1080i, no teelvision provider (in Canada) offers any 1080p content.
*C will be releasing new HD receiver models sometime this year that will have HDMI.
I know many of the people on this forum will settle for nothing less than HDMI, but I personally don't see any difference over component/DVI.

SC Receivers - True?
Is it true that NONE of the SC receivers have HDMI output?
I looked at the Spec Sheets and it seems to be true.
How can get one get 1080i or p with HDMI? This is 2009!!

I say this because I recently had to have a unit replaced and the rep first said he would send a 319 but then he said the computer would not let him as it says there was a 317 in another warehouse.

|QCK||Why are they still selling the 207 and 317 in Future Shop and Best Buy? IMO they should be removed so people that buy the receivers now do not have to exchange them in the future just because they are not 8psk compatible.|

"On a DSR319, you're going to get a green light and a blank screen."
This is much better, to get a green light but still a blank screen ;-)
"For Star Choice receivers, you don't have to do the million or so."
They don't have to provide a new receiver. Make people buy new ones... They do it for "free" HD, why not SD ?

If these are not enough to support the bandwidth required, do all French channels not included in English Bronze.
Not rocket science.

The specs are for the DSR319. The DSR317 is NOT 8PSK compatible.
I know Shaw Broadcast is planning to move HD to DVB-S2/MPEG-4 but is there any plans in place to move to 8PSK/MPEG-2 for SD? I'd be very surprised if Shaw Broadcast was planning this. This would require a major over-haul of many cable system headends not to mention the million or so StarChocie receivers that are NOT capible of tuning that type of signal.
Very interesting times ahead.

How can you believe anything on a page that also states.....
"Component, composite and S-video connections for 100% digital picture"
|2009-01-25 06:38 PM|
On this page, all 4 receivers say the same 8 PSK Compatible:
|2009-01-25 06:31 PM|
Where does it say that on the website? I went to the DSR317 page and it does not mention 8PSK.
Anyways, Cinoche is 100% right. The DSR319 will have 8PSK, that is the only difference compared to the DSR317.
