  1. Bell Satellite TV PVR, HD PVR and HD Receivers
    I enjoy music and often listen to Galaxy on my Bell ExpressVu satellite. My non-HD PVR has a digital optical output. I have a decent amplifier and speakers. I am wondering if it would make any difference to the sound quality if i were to use the optical connection of the PVR to connect to...

    Really this is just curiosity at this point. Someone broke into our place and stole a few things. All our booze. The change from the dresser. And the smart cards from both ExpressVu satellite receivers. Probably some kids... Googling about, I don't find any market for such cards. I also...

    I'm posting this message to help people that might have the same problem my neighbour had. I helped her fix a problem she was having with a Sharp Aquos 37 and the bell receiver. Basically, what happened was that the receiver wouldn't respond to the remote. People from the tech support dept...

    My 9242 just upgraded from V182 to V183! Can't find any changes yet though. Perhaps they've addressed the EHD issues? -Mike

    All my phones in the house were dead. Found this out when trying to send a fax. Apparently been dead for days. After much searching, finally unplugged the Bell box in the bedroom. The NEW 9242 shorts out all phones. The reciever is 2 weeks old. I know it didn't short them all out before...

    Have had a few minor problems with the 6100 but this morning something new happened. When I went to change my favourites listing.....the password screen came up and said to enter the password as it was locked. This is a bit strange since I have not used any password on the unit. It...

    It appears the 9242 will FORCE itself to update everyday (stupid) and after it's done, it will go into standby mode (also stupid). Does the non PVR HD BEV unit also have this exact same behaviour? My 3100 did not ever do this in 3 yrs, so this came as a surprise. Is there anyway to prevent...

    What is the latest on Nimiq 4? I thought it was suppose to be launched in the spring. My searching of this forum and the internet, only mention that. I can't find any news on it being launched or delayed. Does anyone know the latest on this satellite, and when BEV will be using it? Thanks.
