Bell 9500 (and 7500) Receiver Discussions

Had a Bell Tech at the house today to replace my legacy SW44/SW44A switch combo with a DPP Quad. Pretty good service, I called in a problem yesterday (Sunday) and they were at my house the next morning and on a holiday! They waived the $75 service call fee too.

He mentioned there was a 9500 receiver showing up in their system. It wasn't available to anyone and he had little information other than "built in Wi-Fi". Just wondered if anyone had heard of a new receiver - I assume a PVR?

Does anyone know exactly how to wire one 9500 and one 7500 to a 203961 hybrid duo hub?
Nowhere can I find where the 7500 goes.

thanks in advance…
Yes, 9500 will only work with some new TVs as the new TVs may not work with our older PVR. Out since 2019, I think. Hard to buy used, I’m finding.
@Rickitty : Looks like your post may have been moved to this thread on the 9500/7500. I'm not an expert on Bell, but my understanding is that the 7500 is just a dumb streaming box and is "connected" to the 9500, I assume via Ethernet or WiFi. Someone more familiar than I will have to confirm or expand further. The 7500 is not a stand-alone box and requires the 9500 to function since the 9500 contains the tuners and hard drive.
Thanks for your response . It is connected via the 203961 hub. One coax from 9500 to ADV CLIENT connection point. And one coax from the 7500 to where? The remaining ADV CLIENT connection point or the remaining CLIENT/HVR connection point? Thanks
