Hi peeps

I'm thinking of getting a DM800 or a DM500HD when it comes out.

There seems to be a different tuner in each model.

The DM800 has a DVB-S Tuner where as the DM500HD is suppose to have a DVB-S2 tuner.

Does that mean the tuner in the DM500HD is going to be more sensitive or won't it make no difference to a novice like me ? :)

Wondering if someone could shed some light ?

Many Thanks :)

a DVB-S2 tuner can receive both DVB-S and DVB-S2 broadcasts. a DVB-S tuner can only receive DVB-S broadcasts. And most HD and MPEG-4 channels use the newer DVB-S2 broadcasting standards, so I would most defenately go for the DVB-S2 tuner.

the DM800 has a DVB-S2 tuner. Dream still have no info on the 500HD its most likely a clone.
