Question

hooking up a 6131 HD receiver

I have a Bell HD PVR in one room already and I remember the guy had to hook up 2 coaxial cables but I believe he said if bought the 6131HD I could use the existing cable that is hooked up to my 3100 in the other room
Is this true?

You can use the existing cable, however, you will not get HD programming unless that cable is connected correctly at the dish end. To get the HD programming you need the signals from a second satellite, to get this signal they use two LNB's, one for each satellite. They take one coax feed from each LNB and connect that to a switch, one type is called an SW21, then one coax comes from that SW21 and goes to the HD TV. If you are using two HD TV's you need two SW21's , one feeding each of the HD TV's.
There are other ways to do this using other devices but the idea is the same.

The 6131 receiver requires only 1 HD coaxial feed. The downfall is that when the receiver is in PVR mode it will change the channel automatically for you. The 9100 series HD receivers can use 2 feeds, 1 for PVR and 1 for watching TV so that you can watch 1 channel and PVR a different channel. If your previous connection was an HD feed (it will have 2 coaxial feeds from your satellite dish; 1 for the connection satellite 82 and another for the satellite 91).

Yes, it worked for me, If you want all the HD programming you have to pay additional fees, I pay about an extra $10 plus tax / mth for what I wanted.

answer 2
Yes, but to have HD channels you must:
1) have the HD satellite dish (it appears more oval shaped) and has 2 heads to read 2 different satellites at a time (82 and 91)
2) the 2 feeds from the HD satellite must be put through a switch to combine it to a single coaxial feed
2) you must subscribe to HD channel programming
3) you must activate the receiver either online or by calling Bell

Yes, it will work with your existing system. You can add it to your your other receiver(s) or replace one of your other machines. Just remember that you have to have an LNB pointing to another Sat. (82) as well as the SD sat.(91) This requires a dish with the dual LNB or another dish pointing at the HD satellite. Just call Bell after hook up to activate.

A PVR or Personal Video Recorder is just what the name implies. It allows you to record the programming similar to using a VCR, it can also provide additional features.

PVR is a personal video recorder. It allows you to record video feed usually from cable, satellite, or ethernet TV. It allows you to schedule recordings off the guide and at real time so you can rewind up to a couple of minutes back.
