    streaming services raising rates dropping channels

    Price are rising because many of the original streaming services were taking losses in order to build up their subscriber base. Now that they are looking to make a profit they are charging more. Everybody has to pay the piper sooner or later. Eventually the only benefit of linear streaming...

    Big Four Networks Sue Locast

    Whats The Best OTA STB?

    Technically not an STB but you might want to give the Tablo OTA DVR a look. It connects to your antenna and LAN, your TV connects using a local app or a Roku/Firestick etc.

    Sony Bravia TV's

    Actually you can get the x900 in the 49" size. Not as good a deal as the 65" but still an excellent TV.

    What will happen if Dish and DirecTV merge?

    Try driving around in the Rocky Mountains, you are out of cell phone range more than in it. Granted Sirius/XM can have their difficulties too.

    Is it possible to connect wireless Joeys via powerline adapters?

    Another suggestion, try using a Firestick and Dish Anywhere with the bedroom TV. Might solve your problem and save a couple of bucks too.

    Are there any differences between the 54.0 and the 54.1 remotes? (Other than the logo on the bottom of 54.1)

    Hopper 3 no wireless

    You don't happen to be hiding your SSID are you? The Hopper3 won't be able to find a hidden SSID.

    Krell is absolutely correct MAC address do not pass through the Router. That is why we have IP addresses and routing.
