ask ko lang po kung ano po dapat ang audio output ng mga HD channnel, Dolby Digital din po ba or stero lang.. kasi po walang HDMI input ang receiver ko, kaya po from HD digibox eh nakadiresto po sa Samsung Plasma thru an HDMI cable, then from Plasma po nilabas ko yung Audio thru the SPDIF out, pero laging stereo lang ang nade-detect ng receiver.. kahit sa settings ng plasma hindi ko mabago yung SPDIF passthrough.. PCM lang ang puwede, hindi mailipat para maging Dolby Digital.. any help po.. by the way ang receiver ko po ay yung black na IC7600 ang nakalagay sa front panel.. thanks po

SkyCable will soon have 30 HD Channels!

While viewing SkyCable's new Duel-Def promo I noticed that they soon will be offering 30 HD channels. Some of the new channels coming seem to be Comedy Central HD, MTV Live HD, Nat Geo Wild HD, Nat Geo Adventure HD, Channel M HD, and one more HD channel I can't make out the logo of.

Yo tak! behn ito. Walang football sa fox sports/espn hd, last year pinapalabas nila yung FA cup pero ngayon wala na. Yung Balls hd minsan pinapalabas yung azkals game, ewan ko lang kung papalabas uli nila champs league sa balls hd last year kasi laging may live game ng champs league.

Kakainis nga yung fox sports ph walang football, sana pang malaysia nalang yung fox sports na pinili nila.

I am also subscribed to their All-In HD pack (all HD from channels 164 to 182) but since last week I'm on a 1-month free trial period for 6 additional HD channels (183 to 188) that Sky intends to charge an additional Php 700 for.  No brainer sana as in NO WAY except that ang ganda nung isang channel - 184 Cinema World - puro foreign language films with English subtitles.  During the long weekend, I watched a variety of exceptional movies from countries like France, Russia, Chile, Belgium, Colombia, Spain etc.  It's like a new world of cinema was opened for me and its all good.

But c'mon Sky - "All-In" should count for something.

 Cable Isolator-The isolator is needed in case of surges from lightning etc. If this is removed then your protection is removed

@lakay nagbayad pa kayo ng installation fee o libre lang siya?

nagbayad ako P1,999 for dual def package plan P999. wala pa atang free installation promo  8)  :P  O0

i already have sky broadband unli plan P999 speed 1mbps way back 2010. kaya after installation ng sky cable ko called them up for a free upgrade to 1.5mbps.

matagal na kami sa sky broadband na bibihira lang masira ang connection namin. siguro mga 2-3 times lang ako tumawag sa csr nila at yung isa duon may maintenance issue pa.

in my observation sa hd channels ng sky is two thumbs up walang pagsisi whatsoever  (madami akong mga hd movies at  hd tv series ranging to 720p to 1080p). pagnanunuod nga si boss ng food network hd nakakagutom kasi sa quality yum yum yum  ;D  :D

Ganyan din po yun in-install nila sa bahay nung Sabado. :D

Kaso 2 ch PCM lang output sakin kahit naka-direcho na yung HDMI sa AV receiver.  :( Ayaw mag Dolby Digital. Di ko pa na-try SPDIF. Parang iba itsura ng optical port nila dun sa receiver and TV ko.

Pero ang linaw nga ng HD channels :D. Naka-Dobly PL II yung AVR ko para gumana surround. Saya manood ng movies! ;D

I'll start with a rant on Skycable and follow with a question next.

I currently live in a condo and initially contacted Skycable to have them install the Dual Def 999 package. They told me that they would send someone to install two saturdays ago. They didn't show even if I followed up three times throughout the day with the agents only giving me the runaround and the assurance that the installer will show up. They didn't even bother to call me up that they would be unable to. They just told me to wait since their installers can show up even at 7pm. I've wasted my whole day waiting for the [email protected] installer to show up. So i called them up again to schedule the installation this saturday and they cannot give me the assurance that someone would show up and they said it's been scheduled this saturday and they'll install it between 9am-5pm. I don't want to waste a whole day again waiting for nothing.

They called me up today to inform me that they found out my condo is only capable of analog and i cannot avail of the Dual Def 999 package and that the skycable package available for my building is only the gold package and i can't avail of anything else. Is this true? My condo is a condotel (condo / hotel) located in makati.
