    Can I Mount A Dish Brand Dish on A Directv Mount That Was Installed In 2012?

    5 years ago Dish mounted on a DirecTV pole. The installer said he was NOT to do .... but if it is OK with me, he'd do it. So far so good. Later we upgraded to the Hopper 3. Hope this helps

    Loyal Dish customer longevity

    23 years. Started when I purchased a 3000 and a 4000, along with an install kit. I think it was about $800. The 3000 was an IR only and 4000 had a UHF remote. Then the 501 which had a DVR and NO monthly charge. Then ... and, and, and...... you get the idea. CharlieChat was a monthly must.

    How to copy Wally recordings to a new Hard Drive

    Not so much about size vs procedure. On Hoppers, or any other system with a built in hard drive, you can move from external to Hopper to new drive. I've done this a couple times and currently moved from a 2 TB to 4 TB on the Hopper. My Wally has a 1 TB and I want to upgrade to the 2 TB. But...

    How to watch PyeongChang 2018 Olympics in 4K HDR

    Enjoying the Olympics on 147-5 / 540. I had an issue where the video on 4K was black, but with sound. I tried rebooting with the same results. To fix it, I paused the other Olympic channel I was watching using "SWAP" in HD. (I think of it as the A and B side from days ago). I figure there was...

    New Equip - Wally
