    Dish Scapes on 199 is interesting

    Where can I find a “schedule” of these loops? The guide doesn’t show anything except a continuous program. Would love to record them and play in FF. I think it’s a very cool feature. Saw the flying saucer twice yesterday.

    New On Demand UI very ugly.

    I agree, it’s fugly as all get out. Who was the brain child that thought this was an “upgrade”? I just went through every menu setting and nothing is user selectable. What a FAIL!

    I HATE Google Assistant

    Do I like google assistant? Not really but it doesn’t amount to a pinch of rat crap. It works, mine is fine I just don’t like seeing the “Google”. Some of these service cancellations due to this feature seem overly nonsensical.

    New Promo for Showtime/Starz?

    New Promo for Showtime/Starz?

    Pitiful! The grounding block should be outside for sure. Was there no way to bring the feed in through the attic?

    Switched from E* to D*

    Im also on the verge of making the change but there are a few things about D* channel lineup that I dont like. I have the AT180 and D* doesnt have a package quite like it. I dont want the D* everything but would still like to get the TC Premium with locals plus HBO. I am going to miss a couple...
