    Why didn't we ditch TWC when we had the chance?

    TWC- the weather equivalent of MTV.

    TWC customer- would a 2H/2J conversion be seamless?

    Current Time Warner Cable customer...two DVRs and two slave units...whole house DVR accessibility. Question-- would the installation of a multiple Hopper/Joey setup be relatively seamless? I seem to recall reference to the Dish system needing two coax to each box throughout the house? This...

    How long with Dish?

    How long with Dish?

    1996. Regrettably I am ending my relationship as a Dish tech was out this morning at the home into which I just moved and determined the install would be quite complex and potentially would require holes to be drilled into my walls, vents reconfigured, etc. Unfortunately the builder of this...

    Program guide off by one hour

    Thanks for the suggestions. You guys were on the right path...actually dahenny nailed it. I am moving in a couple of weeks and recently scheduled the new install at the home to which I'm moving. I checked my online profile at the Dish website and I am already being shown as living in the new...

    Program guide off by one hour

    Just tried this and it didn't resolve. Weird.

    Program guide off by one hour

    The program guide/receiver time has been off by one hour since Sunday. I thought it might be a premature DST shift, but the time is one hour behind- not ahead as I would expect in the spring when the time changes. Any others experiencing this erroneous time shift? Thanks.

    Am I ready for Hoppers and Joeys (plus cable internet)?

    I have attached a picture I took of the network panel box at the home into which I am moving. I would appreciate understanding what I can expect as a result of this wiring configuration. The rooms in the house all have faceplates with a combination of R45 and coax outlets (no real consistency-...

    Adding Hoppers/Joeys to existing home wiring

    I am moving into a five-year old home in a couple of weeks. I have yet to thoroughly investigate the home's wiring but understand it is set up similarly to most newer homes in that every room is wired with a faceplate enabling connectivity to a couple of CAT 5e outlets and a Coax connection or...

    What should I do with older Dish receivers?

    Thanks for the input. I have a 510, 508, 501, and 2200. I am going to PM you on a related matter.

    What should I do with older Dish receivers?

    One additional question...should I leave the Smartcards in the receivers or should I retain possession of them? I assume someone else using these receivers would obtain new Smartcards from Dish but I'm uncertain. Thanks.

    What should I do with older Dish receivers?

    Thanks. I have sent a PM such that we can work out the details. Thanks to all for the advice regarding.

    What should I do with older Dish receivers?

    I've been a Dish customer since 1995 or so...and have accumulated a number of receivers over the years. My current receivers are leased but prior to that the half dozen or so receivers I have amassed were not. I am moving in the next several weeks and am curious as to the options that might be...

    Did you get a free Roku offer?

    Just got the Roku (no HDMI cable) and $10 off/12 months. Impressed so far with the Roku unit.

    My 722K has suddenly gone south in past two days - freezes during playback and reboots itself

    Replacement arrived last night and it was a refurbished VIP 722. The replacement process has improved from the last time I had to swap out a failed receiver years ago as the instructions were quite lucid (kudos to Dish). It took about an hour to get everything up and running again and at this...
