Is there anyway to turn off the new (highly annoying) banner on the VIP612?
New software update on our VIP 612 receivers that adds the Dish Blockbuster Movie Pass Access to the receiver. With the new software comes a new highly annoying banner at the bottom of the screen anytime we are on a movie channel. It reminds us to check out any of the the following (Starz movies through Dish Online, thousands of movies through dishonline.com, etc.) Hate, hate, hate, these banners and have went through every page of the settings trying to turn them off. It they can't be turned off, I will have to consider (along with their failure to release a multi-room receiver after 2 years) moving to the competition. If anyone from Dish is reading this please don't Spam your existing customers like this, if you want to have it in the software that's fine, but give users the option to turn it off. Thank you for help and time.

Yup. Those of us with 722/k's have already been suffering from this obscenity for months. I hate it too, but I'm not leaving Dish over it. Some claim hitting the cancel button dismisses the banner, and we are being babies for worrying about it. Frankly I can't imagine how this form of ad works. Who among us wants to stop watching a movie on our TV and watch it on a PC after fumbling around on DishOnline? Not me!

is this the same banner that only appears once when you first change to the channel, then doesn't appear until you leave it and then come back?

These need to be an option to turn off ASAP. A stretched out channel logo on the bottom of what otherwise is a beautiful interface? No thanks.
I sit down in front of my TV to watch TV. I don't need a constant reminder that content is available online, I already know!
