    Dish Programming Changes (Effective August 1st)

    Well, you all must have paved the way, because I had no problem confirming that I would no longer be charged for the PlatinumHD. Carol S. kept saying "Absolutely Yes". esteps

    Sky Angel Plans to Charge Lifelong Subscribers for "Special Secular" Channels

    There's more than that-- 1.They ask if we currently use the subscription or not, or if we want to reactivate, or cancel our subscription. 2. Are we the original purchaser or subscriber, a family member, or if not, do we want the SA service? DISH does not ask me for my receiver/smartcard...

    Sky Angel Plans to Charge Lifelong Subscribers for "Special Secular" Channels

    I agree there is something fishy about the letter. Its purpose is supposed to ask us if we want the additional four channels or not, but they are asking a lot more than that! esteps

    Sky Angel Plans to Charge Lifelong Subscribers for "Special Secular" Channels

    FTA/DBS Single Coax Line?

    Yes, I have thought that an AB switch might be the best way to go. By the way, I will be purchasing and installing the Glorystar system this spring. Since I live just up the hill from you, can I pick up the system there in Roseville and save the shipping cost? esteps

    FTA/DBS Single Coax Line?

    Greetings! I have a question-- Can a KU dish (AMC-4) signal be carried over the same line as a DBS (Sky Angel) signal? Perhaps with some kind of switch or diplexer? I currently have a DBS satellite dish connected from about 50 feet to my house receiver via a single RG-6 cable. I wish to...

    HD channel not working

    Last night, my OTA local Sacramento channel 3 HD was also not working--the screen was black. If I get home tonight and it is still black, I will reset the receiver or rescan the channels. That usually fixes it for me. esteps
