Default Starchoice?

Must switch from basic cable and join the real world. Not a big fan of bell. thinking Star Choice, good options for HD and generally programming.
Notice that the HD505 box has a DVI port no HDMI, my new HDTV only has an HDMI port, does it come with an adapter?

I have two other TV's in the house, not HD, nor will they be. Do I need to buy two more receivers from them or are there other options? ebay?

I'm in a cogeco area, no rogers available, pro and cons to starchoice vs bell?

The 505 comes with a DVI-HDMI adapter, and yes, you would have to buy seperate receivers for each TV in the house that you want to be able to receive Starchoice. You can get the DSR209, which is there basic model, no 5.1, or the DSR319, which has 5.1 capabilities.

As far as *choice vs Bell, can't help you there my friend.

Closing. As noted by 57, we have a forum for vendor comparisons and threads. Please post any additional questions in the thread noted.
