I'm new to the HD thing, but when I went into my local E* retailer to get an 811 and the HD package, they told me to wait. They said they had just attended a meeting at which they were told that sometime in Sept things would be switching to MPEG4. They said that would allow more channels, possibly locals in HD, but that they were told nothing about what channels would be added.


They recommended that I wait until the release, or I may have outdated equipment after only a month. What does the switch really mean and is their advice good?

Not gonna happen that quick for E*. Even though I heard that there was a blurb on Charlie Chat that they "will likely add additional HD Channels in late 2005 or early 2006 in MPEG 4 format", I'd give them about another year.


D* is starting thier conversion pretty much now, though.
