    4K H3 rebuffers Netflick on 50 mbs wired internet line

    Eddie -- Thanks for your quick reply. I wondered about the router, but no 4K program from any source has ever showed a buffering problem when direct connected to my router's 50 mbs internet. I am hoping that the 4K Netflicks stream for "The Stranger" contains an error that triggers the...

    4K H3 rebuffers Netflick on 50 mbs wired internet line

    The odd thing about this problem is that it occurs only when I watch episodes of "The Stranger". I also see this problem with a Roku Ultra direct connected to the TV. I am hoping this is a Netflix problem. This will be confirmed if others have experienced it. Otherwise the prime suspect is...

    Golden Globe awards

    When I created the timer for the Golden Globes a few days ago, the start time did not look correct (I believe it was 4 pm Pacific time). When I started watching the recoding I saw the same problem PHXHoward described. Fortunately the live broadcast was just starting so I did not miss anything...

    Hopper "suspicious activity"

    On May 4, 2019 at 00:15 pacific time, my BitDefender internet monitor posted the following notification: "BOX A.1 has detected that Dish Hopper DVR (Family Room) attempted a connection to a suspicious remote location 208.30.75.64." The remote site times out when I tried to access it. If this...

    Anybody else here ever have two providers (excluding OTA) at the same time?

    I saw an analysis of the two compression methods used by Dish and Layer 3. As a result I expected Layer 3's method to produce a noticeably better picture. FLEABttn's comprehensive testing confirms that the Layer 3 picture did look better. I was disappointed that I could not see any obvious...

    Anybody else here ever have two providers (excluding OTA) at the same time?

    I did Layer3 TV's 2-week free trial in August of 2018. I had both Dish and Layer 3 running concurrently. Using a 1080p source on a LG 65 inch OLEG TV, I could not see any difference in picture quality between Layer 3 and Dish. There was no 4K programming available from Dish at that time. My...

    Existing Customer Promotion

    Thanks to beardedbosn for alerting me to this offer. I have been toying with the idea of replacing Dish with Layer 3 TV. By accepting the offer, my Dish payment dropped below the cost of equivalent service offered by Layer 3 TV.

    WATCH 4K ULTRA HD MOVIES FROM EPIX ON DISH

    I don't think anyone sitting 10 feet from a 65 inch TV can tell the difference between 4K and 1080P, unless they are watching a soccer match. Much of the time, the action being televised is 100 yards or greater from the camera. In order to keep a wide enough field of view to give the viewer a...

    Internet radio urls

    My apologies if this is not the appropriate forum for this topic. If it is not, is there a Satellite Guys forum dedicated to Internet Radio? Is there a reliable source for the URLs of the radio stations that currently broadcast on the internet?

    Which Dish remote/remotes do you have/use?

    Thanks to jSheridan for reminding me of the power options. This simplified my Harmony programming. I simply switch to a music channel at Hopper shut down. When I restart the Hopper I hear and see the music channel thus avoiding any spoiler issue.

    Which Dish remote/remotes do you have/use?

    The Hopper user interface and remote controller(s) were designed to meet the needs of the majority of Dish subscribers. Unfortunately, I an not an average subscriber because I use the Hopper as a video recorder, not to watch anything live. As a result, I find the Hopper's power on (Home)...

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    Channel 450-2 was not displayed in my Favorites screen, but 540-1 was. All I had to do was move the cursor to display 540 -2 and there they were -- DUH!!! Thanks to Bobby and LQQK for your help.
