    Dish Panel and what I can do with it?

    On my Vip612 if I press Dish button and go to Services tab (1) there is a Dish Panel option (interactive application loading) that takes you to page to enter some ID information for what? Where is information I should enter and what is that feature anyway and how to use it?

    Spyware infection on my computer. Some Dish online retailer is up to no good!

    Almost looks like your Windows hosts file has been altered. It works like a DNS server and can direct you to wrong website even if you type correct address to address bar. You can check that file yourself. More info below... Hosts (file) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There is one limitation. Normal equipment installed here is two 2.5ft antennas; one pointing to 110 and other with two LNBs 119/129. This setup is NOT 6ft antenna system as I have and you need that to get 129 conus. HD on 129 is delivered to Alaska in spotbeam. My point is why not sell service...

    Have you called Dish and requested Platinum HD? I called they said they cannot give it to me because I live in AK. However, I have been able to watch free previews with 6ft antenna. Does not make sense.
