    622 Warning 760 - Don't do it!

    I had the same problem on Monday. I did a hard reset (unplugged it) and every thing is working fine. Note my hard drive was almost full (10 min left) so I deleted a couple of things to make space in case that was the problem.

    Should I be able to get a signal here? (photos included)

    Just becuase you can get DTV does not mean you can get Dish. DTV orbital slot at 101 is a 30 degree more to the southeast than 129 and the elevation would be about 12 degrees lower in the sky that is a huge difference. From 119 to 129 is 10 degrees different and about 4 degrees lower. Trust me...

    Who is the best installer in the Sacramento area?

    AT&T is just a gimmick I think alot of times you can do better on your own but it varies from city to city. Note AT&T has there own installers and do not offer all dish promotion and hardware configurations. If you have a problem you have to go through AT&T not Dish or a Retailer. Personally...

    Dish installer just arrived: No 1000 dish, need 2 seperate?

    You should definitely get a second opinion on the line of sight issue. Alot of times the Dish installers or RSPs don't get paid alot for 2nd dish installs or upgrades and if they have easier or more profitable jobs on there list they will say no line of sight and go to there next job. I am an...

    You need to call Dish. The DP 34 switch will not work with a separator they only work with Dish Pro Plus so you need a DPP44 switch instead and while there out there make them hook up 129 in case there is no tree problem now or it comes down in the future. If they give you a problem about 129...

    Are these Dish network recievers worth anything?

    They are of little value but type in the model number on ebay and look at completed listings and see what they have been going for.
