    NEW DISH Pricing as of May 23, 2013

    Hello. Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I don't see anything about non-hopper/joey receivers. Does this mean something like the ViP722 is not affected? Will that price of that be going up? Thanks, Scott

    Dish came and put up a new dish, left the old ones. What to do?

    My mother said she got a letter form Dish Network saying that they needed to replace her dishes with a new one. She used to have 2 dishes, both dish 500's, one has a dual LMB head, the other a single. She used to have 109/110 (I think) and the second dish I know was on 61.5 - They replaced it...

    DISH to offer Locals in all 210 DMA's

    Hold up, are you sure you can actually receive the Scranton locals, our is Dish just telling you that you should be able to?

    DISH to offer Locals in all 210 DMA's

    “We are proud to announce that every American will soon have access to their local channels from DISH Network,” said Charlie Ergen, I'm surprised they didn't try and say that they we would have them in HD...because that is a LIE. Two and half years and 450 posts later, we still do not have...

    HD locals for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA timeframe??

    +1 Dish is clueless about this "30 inch dish" and it looks like the only people that have one is Hans Cedardale - and I didn't buy from them either. I bought directly from Dish Networks website.

    HD locals for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA timeframe??

    This morning, I now I have a signal of 3. Sometimes its really high, sometimes its really low. I just don't know. As for the installer coming back, they never did, nor did they call. I called Dish explained this situation and they were disappointed that we've had all this trouble. They then...

    Interesting, I just checked again today and I got 76 the first time, the second time 0 for a while and then it went to 51. And that's for T7 on 61.5 today. If you want a list of all my signal strengths from a few months ago, look here: http://www.satelliteguys.us/2056229-post358.html

    HD locals for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA timeframe??

    As I previously said, I was told that "30 inch dish" would be allow me to finally receive my locals in HD. So I call Dish, and set up an appt for today from 12 - 5pm. Cool! I was out in the morning, and figures the installer comes around 10 or 11 when I was not there. Left a note with his phone...

    new Dish Tri-plexor

    So two satellites and an antenna can be sent over just ONE cable? Cool! Thats two INS and one OUT. Could this be used to combine the TV2 output + RF antenna input for the remotes, along with an OTA antenna input?

    HD locals for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA timeframe??

    As we all know, the HD locals are STILL not working. However, has anyone been having problems with the SD locals? The picture quality on ABC is worse then youtube, and at about 9pm today, FOX was having some terrible picture breakups and pixelation...Not even watchable. However, this weekend...
