    Can Joey use my home's existing WiFi network?

    Is a FireStick running Dish Anywhere an option to make this work over existing WiFi? (although I've seen a slew of negative reviews of the app on FireStick).

    Use existing WiFi network to link remote TV?

    Thanks! Yes, I have WiFi 6 router on each end connected via a pair of 5Ghz 867Mbps TP-Link CPE710s. The DECA eBay listing says "Requires SWM system." Is that something that's standard with Genie? Also, do you happen to know if the Dish system can be similarly configured, or only DirecTV...

    Can Joey use my home's existing WiFi network?

    The reason I suspect this is not possible is because I found this on cepro.com: "Some integrators have raised the question of whether a Wireless Joey can leverage the home’s existing Wi-Fi system. Since the WAP generates a proprietary wireless signal to the Wireless Joey, integrating with the...

    Use existing WiFi network to link remote TV?

    I'm a prospective DirecTV customer. I've got a remote barn that's linked to the house via high speed WiFi bridging. Can I use that existing WiFi to link a TV in the barn to a DirecTV DVR in the house? Thanks

    Can Joey use my home's existing WiFi network?

    I'm looking to do a new Dish install at a friend's farm, which has a remote barn connected by existing high speed wireless network bridging. The links would be too far for the Dish Hopper/Joey WiFi. Can the Hopper/Joey be configured to use the existing premises WiFi for streaming etc? I...

    Please Help with Wireless Joey connection

    I believe the Joey lost connection due to an internal hardware failure. Suddenly network status showed no router detected. Reportedly the other Joey's in the owner's main house had no interruption. They gave me a spare Joey to try and that powers up into the "Connect to WAP" screen. Based on...

    I'm staying in a guest cottage with a wireless Joey connected to the owner's Dish system. There's also a WiFi network on the property. My wireless Joey has lost connection. After a restart, it is stuck on the "Connect to WAP" screen and wants someone to push the WPS button. However, I...

    Viewing constantly interrupted by Partial Signal Loss, code 00-00-00

    Thanks. Yes, I do have the OTA tuner and your suggestion reminds me that I've often seen some screwy behavior with the 722K thinking the OTA signal was weak when it really wasn't.

    Viewing constantly interrupted by Partial Signal Loss, code 00-00-00

    ESPN and CNN keep dropping out with the Partial Signal Loss screen, error code 00-00-00, on this overcast morning in Albany NY. What's particularly bothersome is the blue screen persists until I take action with the remote control. I'm not even sure the signal loss screen pertains to the...

    Zinger after a vacation pause on my account

    As suggested by CSR over on Facebook, I called Senior Resolution Specialists at 866-215-1048 and they quickly restored my former pricing.

    Zinger after a vacation pause on my account

    I paused it in a chat session and don't remember them telling me this (maybe I'm wrong). And they do continue to bill you $5 per month for the pause.
