    Delayed response in menu

    Per Comcast: "all X1 series devices are sent a reboot signal between 0200 and 0400 hours every morning." They would not give a specific reason for the mandated reboot, just stated they push a reboot command out to every X1 box every morning. Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk

    DISH Reaches Long Term Agreement with DISNEY / ESPN / ABC

    How about making all sports channels a separate tier- NOT included in basic packages and OPTIONAL! I'm really tired of paying for something I don't watch. Sent from my LG-LS970 using Tapatalk 4

    Official DISH Channel Request Thread

    "Normal" volume on the new local inserts. Fix it, or I file a complaint with the FCC. It's ere that we watch anything except TCM HD and the Premiums, but when you local insert into MSNBC, everyone covers their eats and the cats run out of the room. NO don't tell me to use the software feature...

    Re: Dish made bid to acquire T-Mobile Yeah, but Twinkees don't break or go bad, so the maintenance costs are much lower, too! Sent from my PC36100 using Tapatalk 2

    STATIONS NOT WANTED - MAKE THEM TOTALLY OPTIONAL ADD ON

    Since the WHAT STATION DO YOU WANT thread only allows for one station to be listed and not genres, I would like to suggest this post as what we would like to have as ELECTIVE or ELIMINATE without specifically requesting in a package. Let me start by stating we never watch sports channels and...

    So whos NOT getting a Hopper due to lack of OTA?

    Not going to wait. Just not going to upgrade. We currently have 3 722K receivers and, with the exception of not having HD on a couple of sets, are very happy. I also have Comcast, HBO on demand, and several other alternatives for watching movies. Unfortunately, Dish just doesn't understand...
