    Free upgrade to the Hopper 3?

    Wel 2 Dirt reps said they could do nothing since it's a new install that I had to go through sales.I will call in and see what I can do. I don't mind paying,but when they say you qualify for our very best offer,and it turns out it's not kinda makes one go hmmmm.

    New Upgrade Prices for Hopper w/ Sling

    Once again I'm not a good enough customer for the free upgrade. $200 bucks is a bit much when so many are getting to upgrade for free.

    Echostar patents putting a weather station on subscriber roofs

    Actually putting a weather station on your roof is a bad location. While many people do its not the best place except for the anenometer which needs to be 33 feet for the best readings. The temp and rain sensors needs to be max 5 feet off the ground. So ill pass on dish since i have my own...

    Prepare for another price increase thx to ESPN

    It would be simple to reduce the price of gas,eletricity, etc etc. Remove oil from futures market,regulate energy companies,but since big business owns our goverment none of this will happen. Far as espan paying an absurb amount to carry sports one day these networks are gonna price themselves...

    Where is the new DIRECTIVO?

    It's simple Scott directv delayed the tivo unit,put it on a old slow box,and withheld the newest tech. Because they knew if tivo had released a very modern and fast unit their in house dvr would have had serious competition. Why tivo ever agreed to this who knows,but it was a very stupid move.

    I was really looking forward to the new tivo,until I learned it was based on the HR-22. The hr-22 is such a pos if I was directv i'd be ashamed.I have the hr-24 and at times its a slow pos as well,but it is still faster than the hr-22. I personally think directv intentionally put the new tivo on...
