    Any other seniors w/ problems cashing in free monthly movie certificates?

    What the CS told you about having to call in is bologna. I always order them from my phone or tablet. With the Stars and Stripes pack I get 1-2 free movies each month. At the bottom of the e-mail that they send me with the certificate number is a link to "order on demand movie". I click on that...

    OTA issue

    I'm still getting this error screen on occasion even with 100% signal on all of my OTA channels. It totally locks up the channel until I change channels or in some cases I have to re-boot my H3. The Dish Tech that came to my house a few months back swapped out my old tuner dongle for a new Dish...

    Dropping local channels - Leave old timers?

    If you drop the Dish locals the timers will not default to the OTA channels. You will have to re-due all of the local channel timers to the new channel. I imagine that you could leave the old timers in place but having the same program setup to record on two different channels might cause problems.

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    Is the local channel pkg. all that is needed to have access to the SB on the Fox Sports App.? I do have a 4K Firestick so good on that part of it.

    Guide Freezing On H3?

    I haven't experienced the problem for quite a while now. At it's worst it was happening to me everyday. This tells me that one of the updates must have fixed the issue for some but not all.

    Dish Anywhere on Firestick not showing all episodes recorded on Hopper 3

    Ok, this may be a dumb question. Are you clicking on episodes at the top? I've found that the way it shows all the episodes is very confusing and thought they were missing a couple of times.

    Problems Authenticating Fire Stick

    I think I had a similar problem a couple of weeks ago where it decided my password was old and needed to be updated. After unsuccessfully trying to update the password from my Samsung phone using Samsung internet I had to log in from my PC using Firefox. There I entered the same passcode again...

    Dish Anywhere Prob.

    I'm guessing the CS person meant that they should watch DA on a tv using a Firestick instead of watching on a computer. I can say though from my experience so far that watching DA on a Firestick has been far less than ideal. Numerous issues.

    OTA signal came back after Hopper 3 reboot. Why?

    I'm still getting this at random times. It's been happening to me for close to 6 months now, long before the last software update. Replacing my AirTV dongle with the black Dish model did nothing.

    Dish Anywhere Prob.

    My OTA channels and all guide info eventually came back on their own with DA on the 2nd and 3rd Firesticks late yesterday. Not sure what was going on that caused DA to mess up on 4 different devices like that. I have to believe it was something that Dish was doing on their end but who knows.

    Dish Anywhere Prob.

    Correct. I tried a 2nd Firestick and the OTA locals were listed in the guide but only about half of the guide info was actually there. Perhaps the rest of the guide info will populate later similar to when new channels are added?? I have been having random missing guide info problems with DA in...

    Dish Anywhere Prob.

    Interesting that you mentioned this because you're right, all of my channels below 71 are OTA. I no longer subscribe to the Dish locals. I've documented in another thread the problems I've been having with my OTA channels locking up sometimes and not recording anything. When that happens I get...

    Dish Anywhere Prob.

    I un-installed and then re-installed the DA app on one of the 3 Firesticks and that seemed to fix the problem. It's also now working on my phone. I will check the other 2 Firesticks later. I wonder how the app could have been bad on 4 different devices?? Or did Dish fix something on their end...

    Dish Anywhere Prob.

    Tried the circuit breaker suggestion. Left the power off for 5-10 minutes and then turned back on. Still have the same problem. No guide channels below 71 and when I click on any channels I get the test channel message. Tried my 3rd Firestick, same issue. So this is happening on 3 different...

    I've done that a time or two myself.
