    Missed (skipped?) recordings

    Well, it did it again. GF is not happy. Real Housewives didn't record last night. Reason: It show the original airdate as 2017, even though it was a new episode. So, yes it is 99% issue of guide provider.

    Missed (skipped?) recordings

    Very frustrating to say the least. I've spoken to them numerous times about it, the first time I think was the only time they acknowledged it. Thsi last time they had me talk to a supervisor who adamantly denied there has ever been these issues, and that I was flat out wrong about them...

    Stop Genie from searching for Satellites

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I figured as much. It's sad that this board has more information than what is available to Direct's customer service.

    Stop Genie from searching for Satellites

    Hey guys- I need some help. Directv customer service was no help, but hopefully somebody may know more or have a better answer. I am in the middle of having my roof re-shingled and the dish had to come down. Directv can't come out for 4 days to re-mount. Ok. I'll just watch stuff off of...

    Showtime half-price

    Just got off the phone with them. They said I could get the offer and had no idea why the chat guy wouldn't let me. Isn't it sad that all these people aren't on the same page.

    Showtime half-price

    Saw an ad (or should say heard) on Comedy Central for Showtime for half price. I didn't hear the full ad. Went on Dish chat to ask what the promo length is and was told they don't have that promotion. When I said that I just saw an ad for it I was told was it hasn't started yet. When I asked...

    Dish says I have low signal strength...

    Sorry 1 more thing I forgot to mention. The tech told me that even though my receivers have been connected to the internet for a couple years now, and supposedly the receivers have been able to to communicate health status back to Dish this whole time, that feature has only been functioning...

    Ok, so I checked out another receiver's numbers. These are from the 612 in my bedroom... Tuner 0 numbers look ok. Tuner 1 numbers: 110: 14-73, 15-75, 16-80, 21-77 119: 14-70, 15-73, 16-78, 21-74 129: 14-77, 15-0, 16-71, 21-70 So it looks like tuner 1 has issues on my 612. I was under...
