    Unable to change HDMI inputs with Dish remote (40.0 or 54.0)

    Totally disagree. That may have been true many years ago, but they work flawlessly in all of my setups now with several different components. If you haven't tried in awhile it might be worth your while to try again.

    2019-20 NCAA Football Thread

    Yep, that is exactly it. I heard that for those two games in 2015 (which were both bad games) ESPN incurred over $100m in Advertising Deficiency Units (ADUs). That means that they promised a certain number of eyeballs to their advertisers and didn't deliver those eyeballs so they had to do it...

    He didn't say money for the teams. He said money. ESPN sells a lot of ads during those bowl games. Personally I love them. I do a couple of different bowl pools every year and I watch almost all of them (hate when there is more than one on at a time).

    Not true. Less than half go to bowl games. The kids love them. Especially the ones in good locations (e.g. Florida).

    Bowl games are a reward. No one wants to go somewhere and freeze their butt off to play/watch a game there!

    Survivor: Island of the Idols

    Noura got no votes. That was pretty much a given. I didn't really like any of them either.

    Hated the outcome of the vote. WTF on the end. Wonder what happened off camera...

    722k reciever fan going bad

    I agree, if you are going Hopper at this point I wouldn't go anything other than the 3. It is MUCH better.

    Dish Gains in Reports of Talks with Amazon

    There is absolutely a WAF of having Prime on the Hopper platform.
