    PQ D!SH vs Netflix

    With my Hopper with Sling, If I do not shrink the image and move it slightly down (where you line up the circles with the corners of the screen to size/position the PICTURE IMAGE) there is a massive amount of overscan on my display. It will actually cut off portions of the station ID logos in...

    PQ D!SH vs Netflix

    One thing that I noticed when I moved from my old house in April 2018 and they switched me to a Hopper from my old original 722 was decreased picture quality. I had the same 65" display and watching Dish through the Hopper, it seems significantly softer than my old 722. Everyone told me I was...

    HOA says move dish

    That is the problem with HOA's, the delayed responses. When we were dealing with my wife's broken ankle I parked my car in the street as she parks in the garage (and I park in the driveway) and it was easier as we were only using one car. Did that for a week, and then moved my car back to the...

    PQ D!SH vs Netflix

    I agree, while most of the time the sound on most shows are "ok", I find that Dish sound quality is muddy and difficult to understand quite often. I am not sure if it is the original sound production on the show in question, or if it is Dish's compression that makes it so bad. My wife watches a...

    PQ D!SH vs Netflix

    Channel owners need to provide a product that people want rather than cram their packages down dish's throat. If you provide something that people want, they will pay for it. I love the flex pack, I can pick and choose what I want to see, without all the extra garbage. Streaming does still not...

    PQ D!SH vs Netflix

    I don't think building the entire brand around sports is a winning plan. I got the flex pack so I could EXCLUDE ESPN. I am a movie/hometheater buff and not into sports, and I am definitely looking for picture quality to view on 65"+ screen sizes (Dish is not quite as crisp on my 65"display as I...

    Dying HWS

    Are the fees more on a Hopper 3 than HWS? I am paying $36 in fees now (HWS $15, and 3 WJ at $7 a pop). Don't they usually charge money to step up to H3 ($100 and up)? I know when I moved almost 2 years ago and went from my old 722 they wanted $150 more for the H3.

    Dying HWS

    Yes I do with my HWS, especially since I have 3 tv's connected (2 wireless Joeys), sometimes I have to tell it to skip a prime time recording for a later showing to not tie up all three timers at the same time, wife and stepson might not appreciate that. I have thought about stepping up to a H3...

    Dying HWS

    I had a HWS replaced in December, but I was having connectivity issues with wireless joey's. The sent a tech to check everything out and he ended up replacing the HWS. When I first moved to our new house in May of 2017 they did send me a replacement HWS without a tech, as a software update got...

    joey's glitch

    I also had a similar issue with my HWS and Wireless Joeys. They ended up replacing the HWS and installing a Snap (not sure if that helped or not). I also started treating the Wireless Joeys very tenderly. I used to click the skip ahead button 7 or 8 times very quickly to skip commercials and it...

    Strange OnDemand issue last night

    Last night after watching an episode of a show that I had recorded off the Discovery Channel, I saw other episodes of the same show available OnDemand in the list of episodes in the DVR. I selected one of them to watch, it took me to the rental screen (was free) and looked like it had started to...

    Hopper Duo, Joey, & External Hard Drive Issue

    I have a Hopper with Sling with two external hard drives attached, I have wireless Joey's and they have no problem showing ALL drives in Other Devices folder when you are in the DVR. I am not sure why your does not, maybe it is the Joey with the issue?
