Difference between HDHR5-4US and HDHR5-4US(CA)?

Post by DeGodefroi » Wed Jul 03, 2019 1:26 pm

Hi all, I am not sure that this is the correct place, but I am trying to figure out if there is any difference between the
HDHR5-4US and the HDHR5-4US(CA).
I am moving to a town close to the Canadian border. So there will be USA and Canadian OTA channels. Would I be able to use the HDHR5-4US model to watch the Canadian channels as well? Or do you need the HDHR5-4US(CA) model for the Canadian OTA channels?

The (CA) model has a bilingual English/French box. That's the only difference. Either one will receive broadcasts from both countries.

Well, yes, the hardware and software will work to receive Canadian broadcasts but think about the poor viewer. They've got to be prepared to hear such weird Canadian pronouncements as "Eh" and "Beauty" and even "Beauty, eh?". And the endless salivating over maple syrup, peameal bacon and butter tarts. ...

I tell you, it is a whole different country!

Craig, eh?
