    Unsolicited Remote Being Shipped to Me

    Then might I suggest DISH make one small modification to this process: give the customer a heads-up before shipping, and give the customer the option of accepting or rejecting the offer. Otherwise, this just seems wasteful.

    Unsolicited Remote Being Shipped to Me

    What? Am I supposed to be happy to receive a product when there's absolutely nothing wrong with the one I have? I would imagine several of us have somewhat complex setups in which introducing a new proprietary remote would be unwelcomed.

    Unsolicited Remote Being Shipped to Me

    I just received this email. Apparently DISH is shipping me a 54.1 remote. Why are they doing this? I didn't ask for it. I don't want it. My Harmony remote does everything I want a remote to do. Are they going to jack with the software thereby disabling the legacy remote's function? I guess...

    Oooookay. I knew something had to have happened.

    What makes you believe this?

    I've been away from the forums for quite some time. Claude, what happened? I don't remember you being like this before.

    I considered it, but I've never had a need for it before, so as it is, the only reason I'd need it is for Locast. As it is, I'm paying Locast $5.50 per month. I'm not paying more while these asshats duke it out. My hope is that this doesn't go on for much longer. Otherwise, if I invest any...

    FYI, The Locast app is working out pretty well playing directly from my SHIELD TV. I had to initially submit a ticket to get them to allow me to see my DMA. It took them about 3 days to respond to the ticket, and then it was fixed quickly along with an email explaining it was done. (In that...

    So, I guess this didn't turn out to be true:

    From my simplistic, ignorant perspective, I would condense that down to preventing vendors from removing a product for which the consumer is currently or expected to pay. The contract and terms of use probably account for this and thus protect the vendor amidst the current circumstances, but I...

    Of course. That's precisely my intent.

    Yes, Tyler has a DMA and I am geographically much closer, but I am still in the DFW DMA. DISH knows this and serves me DFW locals (when they aren't in dispute). Atop my 50' tower, I actually have 2 antennae with one pointing East and one pointing North. When the antennae weren't being torn...

    And for the record, I'm actually not one of those people. I am in the DFW DMA.

    I never got a response from Locast regarding the incorrect location on my SHIELD TV (Android box), but I was able to get it to work by going to the Locast site on an infrequently used PC on my network and "casting" it to my SHIELD. It's not flawless because about every hour I have to refresh...

    They specifically indicate they determine it off of geolocation, so if location services aren't turned on, it won't work. Even if it is based off my ISP, when they ask you to submit the ticket, they ask for your ZIP, presumably as an alternative. I assume, at that point, they modify the user's...
