PRINCE RUPERT, BC â€“ CityWest has added seven new HD channels to its digital cable line-up for customers in Prince Rupert, Port Edward and Terrace.
APTN HD, CTV West HD, City-TV HD, TVA HD, Global West HD, Raptors NBA TV HD, and The Score HD will make up a new HD-theme pack available at no extra charge for customers who currently subscribe to all of the companyâ€™s digital theme packages.
â€œOnce youâ€™ve seen something in high definition, itâ€™s hard to watch anything else, so weâ€™re committed to continue to add more high definition channels in the futureâ€
I switched from Starchoice to CityWest digital cable last fall - but just have the SD PVR (I think it is the DCT 3080) - still have an old 27" CRT - can’t quite bring myself to pay the outrageous prices for a new LCD or Plasma TV (and the higher electricity costs) … I just figured out the other day how to get in to the Admin portions of the PVR and from what I can see the USB and RJ45 ports are active - I haven’t tried to connect my laptop or anything to the gadget so I don’t know if those ports are really active or not - and I also understand that the formatting on the hard drive is proprietary and not the normal computer formatting etc (mind you it is all Motorola chips in any case so you could probably figure out a way around things - and there is a post out there on the internet on how to add a larger hard drive to the PVR) …
I still think TV Torrents is the way to go. They do offer 720p.mkv, which if I am correct can be converted into blueray. My dvd player does not play them so I just get the standard .avi files, quicker to download as well.
The site is invite only, unfortunately I have only 2 to offer up. Memberships are pretty hard to come by from what I understand. I will not sell them, so the first two people who can write me a PM, and in under 50 words write as to why they should have the invitations. I’ll pick the best two and post them in a different forum. Creativity goes miles with me, and don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story.
The invitations will come with 20 gigabytes credit each.
Yeah, I also love Star Choice. I really like the picture quality, it is crystal clear. I’ve got a HD satellite dish and a HD PVR which is very cool to play with.
I’m saving up for a HD TV, one of those Sharp Aquos units.
