    Back with Directv!!!!

    I'm about to switch from Dish to Direct. Are the PIP and fast forward functions on the Genie as good? I'll probably miss the 30s skip. Glad they got SEC, but if they got Pac12 (which seems highly unlikely) it would be an easier decision. I'll enjoy NFL games though.
  2. Q


    Wish they had the Scott Hanson version, but I heard it's a different one only for Direct.

    Got 6 months for 30 bucks

    Dealing with this company is almost always a headache-I've been a sub on and off since 2003. The last time I re-signed up I got the $25 for 6 months deal and had access to all channels my primitive Sirius radio could get. I want to listen to my college team's football games and they are only on...

    pip basics....

    Does the swap button still work the same as on the 622? How many pips do you get 2 or 3? Can you control the aspect ratio in side by side?

    Blockbuster to close all 300 remaining stores and distribution centers by end of December 2013 or ea

    Aside from the lack of selection on Netflix streaming, their movies look and sound as good as Blu Rays on my PS3. Maybe more dynamic range on the Blu Ray, but otherwise I'm very happy with Netflix overall. I'm watching it as much as the Dish now that baseball season is over.

    New Lineup Coming May 4th!

    I like the changes. Things are grouped together better. We'll see if it makes it any easier to find a basketball game next season. Also happy that NPR got more bandwidth on Sirius. We also got BBC World Service. Lynn Samuels is gone from the Left channel, which is good for everyone.

    Dammit Dish.............

    I'm in Fort Collins and the Rockies broadcasts were great for the first month of the season. Suddenly starting this Sunday we haven't had a game in HD since. Supposedly we're going to get a JIP tonight (it's already the 2nd inning now.) I was with Comcast for the past couple of years, and...

    New XM Lineup

    I would love to have the System in the car (or at least on Dish), but this is probably what they think of as "waste/redundancy." Area has a ton of mixshows now, so I think most people will be at least somewhat happy with it.

    New XM Lineup

    We knew the System was going away like a year ago. Area is good.

    Buzz Saw hits XM staffers!!

    Area XX has been an excellent channel for a very long time, and I'm really looking forward to the addition of the System programs and FINALLY WE GET BPM!! :)

    interested in swithing to Dish

    Why doesn't Dish carry Fox College Sports? Most of the cable carriers in college football territory carry it.
  12. Q

    PBS, APTS Push FCC on Dish Network HD

    We need PBS (and NPR) so the government isn't allowed to run roughshod over the people. Channels like Fox News are in the business of promoting a pro-business government. We need public broadcasting so we can get a view of the world that isn't influenced by the interests of big business...

    Hd Dvr

    722 has a switchable mode. You can either have the same thing outputted to both TVs (which is awesome for a single guy like me), or you can have TV1 and TV2 as different outputs. If they are both outputting the same thing you get PIP and can watch one show while recording another. My second...

    Pixelation problems (normal or signal strength?)

    I've got a 722 and I'm having issues with MSNBC/CNBC and CSPAN having a jerky picture every once in a while. It may be related to how much wind we're getting at the time, though.

    PBS, APTS Push FCC on Dish Network HD

    I used to watch a lot of pbs, but haven't hardly at all since I switched from Cable (With HD) to Dish. I hope congress forces them to carry it.
