Not much to discuss about this yet as its a problem ahead for most of the satellite enthusiasts, and untill we have had and experienced the problems as they come the experiences are yet minimal.
Some are already preparing their Mpeg4 decoders, while we also think of how best to utilize what we have in position without spending too much.
I would think of a converter making the old systems still useful, but I do think the manufacturers would rather sell new than use the old boxes they had already sold with converters.
Let all show up their experience on this change for us to get a way forward - otherwise called a short cut, and thats what the thread is looking for.
Or lets all just buy new Mpeg4 and HD decoders
