    Replacement remote for 211Z, 211K

    I told them (truthfully) that remote #1 was completely dead. They still were adamant that we had to go through all troubleshooting steps, including receiver reset, etc. They also kept bringing up Receiver #1 vs. Receiver #2, which was not applicable to my setup.

    Replacement remote for 211Z, 211K

    Update: I contacted Dish Support chat via Facebook, they quickly responded and sent me two new remotes free of charge since I have Dish Protect Silver. Thanks for those here who pointed me in the right direction. My only complaint now is why their Customer Support via their main phone number is...

    Replacement remote for 211Z, 211K

    Thanks for the info, I'll look into that. And note to admins - I read that the Dish DIRT team is no longer allowed to support their customers via satelliteguys, so you may want to remove the "Our DISH Forum also features AWARD WINNING support from the DISH Internet Response Team! (DIRT)" from...

    Replacement remote for 211Z, 211K

    Hi, first post in quite a while. I have two remotes for a 211Z and a 211K that have become troublesome. The first remote stopped functioning altoghether, even with a fresh set of batteries. None of the lit buttons would work, and of course it would not control the receiver. I actually threw this...

    211z playback problems

    I jusr had a faulty 211 (the old silver version) with a EHD replaced with a 211z, and I am seeing the same issue. About half of the recordings from the 211 are not watchable with the 211z, with the same symptoms as noted above. When I connect that EHD to a 211k on my account everything plays...

    211 HDMI Port

    One of my 211s also just had the HDMI port go out, but my TV has a component input as well so I can switch to that. I've had this 211 for several years and I don't even recall if this receiver is "leased" or "owned" and if that makes any difference in getting a replacement from Dish. How...

    Pac 12 Network

    I didn't check during football season, but now during basketball once again the Alt channels are never utilized. I've also noticed that in the past the national PAC 12 channel would occasionally mention games carried on a regional channel, but they never do that anymore. Sometimes those...

    Disney to spin off ESPN?

    ESPN paid way too much for the NBA, paid way too much (more than any other channel) for crappy Monday Night Football games, and also overpaid for most other big time pro and college sports. They overpaid because they thought they could just continually pass the costs onto cable/sat companies...

    DVR service fee

    What's a Hopper? :) I feel so old-school with my 722K and 211s (each with an EHD). And I don't get on here much either, just dropped by to find out about the NBC/Comcast dustup.

    Pac 12 Network

    What regional Pac-12 channels on Dish? Dish has never offered any of the regional Pac-12 channels. They do have a few alternate channels, they used to use them on occasion for overflow basketball games but I noticed this year they were never used. Did you mean to say Dish does *not* have the...

    DISH Comcast Dispute?

    If my wife loses Bravo and the Real Housewives series it may be the end of the world for me. :)

    DVRs limited to 1000 recording?

    So is this considered a bug or a feature? :)

    DVRs limited to 1000 recording?

    So my 211 with an EHD was starting to act up today - wouldn't record correctly, random channel changes, claimed it was recording but nothing was added to the DVR list of recordings. After a bunch of troubleshooting (at first thinking the external hard drive was dying) I figured out the issue...

    DISH quietly renews deals with CSN

    Apparently not desperate enough to be willing to negotiate CSN/Philly. The loophole that Comcast used to keep CSN/Philly off of satellite was closed years ago, and yet neither Dish or DirecTV have it yet. As far as I'm concerned that issue should torpedo any merger talk involving Comcast.
