Why? Are they scrapping the DPP Twin and Quad LNBF's.

Surely 2 lines from a DPP Twin would feed a pair of DPP Seperators? And therefore 4 lines from a Quad could feed 4 of them.

9500s are in. They're going to utilize the dpp twin and until they replace 9400 and 6400 are replaced with 7500s tget will still use quads. It does not require dpp seperator. It does work off dpp 44 systems . The only difference is it requires a solo or duo hub on the line for 1 or 2 9500s. From those hubs there is a 7500s hub that only requires one line from the solo or duo hub that makes each 9500 work in unison with 2x 7500s. So if 1 9500 and 2 7500s are installed there is only 1 line from dish to solo hub. Then 1 line from it to 9500 and 1 line to the 7500s hub where each 7500 has a line from the 7500s feeder hub. It's actually better then the hopper. They removed the internet apps for now. But in near future we can use Netflix and other 3rd party apps with the 9500 and in future 7500s. The 7500s will not be released the first year and until then we will be using the system to run both dppZ and legacy receivers. Hope this helps guys. Sorry for the late response but we just got them a little bit ago. This is the future of canadian satelite. It will force shaw to revamp there system completely. It is 6 years in the making since we first heard rumors of a 9500. Its finally here. I'm posting this as not even bell has anything on line about it. And unfortunately I cant post the specs for install as pictures are to large. I will have them compressed and uploaded shortly.

Small update I forgot to add. It has an internal wifi adapter. With higher capacity then the current adapters. As well the remote unfortunately isnt blue tooth but is the almost the same model as the fibe remote. Just used IR still. It does not have uhf ability. Customers that hide receivers in custome cabinets or rooms will need to purchase this privately. An ir blaster transmitter system.

Maximum of 2x 9500 per account. Non negotiable. And when it comes out max of 4x 7500. The 9500 is same size as 9400 but the 7500 are very slim and small. They will replace 9400s with 9500 they will not continue legacy receivers once the 7500s are out for new customers

And yes I was wrong in my original post I did not know the setup yet. They surprised us all with this receivers working in unison idea. 1 9500 works with 2 7500. There why u would need 2 for a 6 receiver setup

Iíve currently got 4 receivers. 9400,6141,6131,6400 running off two DPP44. Iíve got a few extra lines and will be curious to see how I can add a 9500 to my setup. Once Visions gets them of course.

Any idea when the pics/specs will be available.

Even better if you knew when the product will be available.

Would you please provide some specs...(ie hard drive size - ssd or old style)

Do we need one line in or two if we have DPP quad?

HDMI version?

Thank you...

1 Tb of space, I dont think it an ssd, it an old mechanical hard drive.
Only 1 line from the dpp quad or twin, we connect that line on a ''Dish hybrid solo hub'' (Just google it to see what it look like)
After, we connect one line from the hub to the 9500.



Look like that, the ''hopper'' are the 9500 and the two ''joey'' are the 7500 (who will be release next years)

Dont know for the hdmi, but the 9500 are not 4k compatible so I think it hdmi 1.4. The receiver are capable of 1080p.
