It appears to be the Dish, Hopper & Joey set-up that was promised to Installation Companies over 5 years ago...

Question

Although i'm no longer a Bell TV sub it's nice to see that Bell is investing inb their sat biz again. The only draw back is you can have all the 'fancy' receivers you want Hopper & Joey wireless 4K and such but if you don't have the channels(that are available on Fibe TV,Shaw Direct or cable IPTV services)what's the point.

Yeah it's nice to have those receivers but the programming & channels would be alot better with those new receivers.

I have a 9242 with SW44 ... would the 9500 be plug & play? It's the only receiver I have (and it's starting to fail, so I'm on the lookout for a replacement).

No, the new 9500 are not compatible with legacy lnb, You need to remove the sw44 and change your legagy lnb for a dpp quand or twin, and add a solo hub.

Hmm, I wonder how this would work for Us in the North that use 2 1 meter dishes for 91 and 82. I don't think there is a way to use a dpp quad or twin.

Swap your Legacy LNBF's for DP Dual LNBF's, then run a line from each to a DPP44 switch.

I contacted bell and the only difference they told me is that the 9500 has wireless built in. I got put through to second level support and he didnt even seem to know anything about it. Im curious if there's an updated guide/menu on it.

Damn... that means that, as with the 9400, it's pretty much useless.

Gotta keep on keeping my 9242s healthy any way I can, it seems!

This may not even be for the masses as when I checked a few days ago there wasn’t a hint of them mentioned anywhere on the Website.
