  6. Seems like that confusion has been going on for a long time. The S-Video port on the back of the Austar box is labelled S-VHS
  7. I think you might be on to something there mrfixits. The best picture quality I can remember was when i was streaming the DVB transport stream from my dreambox to my HTPC and doing software upscaling to 1080 I loved that solution, as it was all digital, so no quality loss, but i can no longer do that since austar implimented their changes to stop 3rd party boxes
  8. Its a 46" Samsung 1080p LCD. I know the picture is never going to be great, but the s-video is still nowhere near as good as it was when i was using component.
  9. Okay, I hooked it up via S-Video, it is marginally better, but still looks pretty terrible. Nowhere near as good as when i had it hooked up via component in a 3rd party box, before they made the changes to prevent that. Thanks guys... I might be able to hold out until they release a HD box with HDMI
  10. Hi DrP, The photo on the bottom looks like my box. Hmm I was not aware that it had s-video, I might give it a go if I can find a cable. How is the quality of s-video compared to composite?
  11. Hi there, My Austar box is one of the very early ones, and it only supports composite output. Recently I have been getting very frustrated at the atrocious picture quality this box outputs. Is there any way of getting a better quality austar picture short of switching to a mystar?
  12. I have WWE - Wrestlemania XXIV (2 Disc Set) (Blu-Ray) for trade. Details here: It is locked to region B. Will trade for HD-DVD(s), or Region A compatible Blu-Ray(s)
  13. Thanks everyone, Even if I did not have the phone line connected, I could still use everything but Box Office though right? So... Anyone want Platinum HD package with me paying the majority of the bill?
  14. ahh, I only have a single output LNB at the moment. So I guess I would need to replace that, but thats not a big drama to do. Other than that, no problems? How does stuff like box office movie ordering work?
  15. Hi All, I am not willing to wait for Austar to catch up to Foxtel with the release of HD services. Theoretically, if I had a friend with a Foxtel IQ2 satellite box + legit sub card, and they shipped it to me, would I just be able to plug it into the Austar wall port and have it work with no drama? Cheers.
