    First off i have both SV7 and Kryptview A780 I love them both but my house is full of HD Tv's and I really want to get the best out of them.

    I was told last month not to go over to satelite for HD as kryptview would be bringing out a new HD box end of April, start of May 2012 time.

    Ive had a kryptview from day one for over 2 years now and would defo buy a HD one but rumours of HD boxes coming out have been going on for 2 years so please if anyone has any information on a release date let us all know or its £300 setup + for a full satelite setup.

    Thanks for listening and please chip in :smile:

    I have been told that there are a few prototypes around. TBH, I can't see many being sold unless Satellite CS gets blocked

    yes the HD channels are on again using a normal kryptview a780 but obviously a fuzz of colours so this is a good sign the HD boxes are coming, thank god.

    Lincsat i know what you mean about "I can't see many being sold unless Satellite CS gets blocked" Because before i wrote this thread i thought the costs were high but i know understand that Satellite C/S is vast with a massive range of products to suit all budgets. And i'm sure a new HD box from either Kryptview or starview will be expensive.

    Lincsat can you please elaberate on "unless Satellite CS gets blocked"... Is there a possible end in sight to this that you know or have heard of???
    Cheers

    It's possible that Satellite and/or cable CS could be blocked at any time. There have been rumours posted as facts on here and other forums for over 2 Years that CS would be blocked "Within Weeks".

    I don't know but I suspect it would take a new card release to fully block CS, the last Cable and UK Satellite card releases took around 1 Year from first reports to completion, so I don't see anything imminent.

    i'm wondering if anyone can help. ive seen countless posts on fourums with people asking about when the kryptview hd box is coming out and i am one of the people who is looking forward to getting one of these boxes if they ever do come out.

    priced at £250.00 which includes free delivery.

    Thanks

    I'm actually interested in this cable lark now. £250 seems ok for what your going to get.

    Has anyone who bought a kv ever needed to part with any more cash after the initial buy? Don't think they have?

    I remember all that sv saga like.

    So we have any more info on these hd boxes at this point?
