    Poll: Fire Stick or Roku?

    A couple of years ago, I got our first streaming device, which was a Fire stick. It worked fine until we got YouTube TV last fall. Whenever we watched a live ballgame, the picture was very jumpy, to the point of me feeling sick. After searching online, I decided on a Roku Streaming Stick+...

    Dish Alignment?

    Last month we had a new roof installed. We had the satellite dish re-attached by Dish. Since then, I have noticed the picture breaking up on occasion, similar to when the weather is inclement, but not as bad. I'm assuming the dish was not quite properly aligned. Is there some test I should...

    Missed (skipped?) recordings

    Is anyone having issues with recording ballgames on an RSN? For the past few months, on occasion, when we record a baseball game, or a basketball game (a few weeks ago), the recording stops somewhere in the middle. A baseball game will usually record for 4 hours, but when we are watching, it...

    Chicago Bears Games on DISH from outside region?

    Ugh! Tell me about it. I'm in Milwaukee and I used to see my Bears 12 games a year. The last few years, not so much. This is just adding insult to injury. :)

    Could anyone clarify NBA blackout rules for me?

    Thanks for all the responses. When we were at Costco, the Directv rep did tell me that the service was set for the local zip code, which is about 15 miles further from Chicago than I am. And he also showed me that the channel we were watching was CSN-Chicago. If he got the game through NBA...

    I did, and it wasn't on.

    Could anyone clarify NBA blackout rules for me?

    I've got a question on this subject. I live in southern Milwaukee County and I get CSN-Chicago. I am able to see the Blackhawks, Sox, and Cubs, but the Bulls games are not available to me. Does the NBA have different rules? Also, we went to check out a new Costco last night, in a different...

    External Sling Adapter & Network

    As long as this thread is already started, I'll jump in here. I currently have one hopper and two joeys and am considering getting a sling adapter. There are a few things I'm not sure about. Does anyone know if the price is still around $50.00? Does a tuner have to be free in order for...

    DISH Reaches Long Term Agreement with DISNEY / ESPN / ABC

    That's good news, but mine are all gone. I was sure someone pulled the plug. I just dropped down to 200 from 250. Could Dish have screwed something up when they made the change?

    DISH Reaches Long Term Agreement with DISNEY / ESPN / ABC

    Okay, has anyone else lost the ESPN channels in high def, right in the middle of the games?

    What don't you like about the Hopper

    I get a beautiful picture with OTA. I used the term lousy because every time I tune to an OTA channel, there is pixilation for the first few seconds, and also at several times throughout the program. I've been tuned to OTA for football today, and it has happened several times throughout the...

    What don't you like about the Hopper

    I hate the lousy picture I get with OTA on the Hopper. I never had any pixilation on the 722, the picture was perfect. Also, it's annoying when one of my EHDs does not show up in the list, which happens quite often. Then I have to unplug it and plug it back in again. I shouldn't have to do that.

    Fox Sports 1

    Does anyone know which of the Fox channels will carry the new Big East basketball games? I thought I read it a while back, but can't remember which channel.
