    U548

    Thanks guys, that did it and it looks like I have U575 which was downloaded on 3/11. That is an interesting screen. I don't think I knew about it before now.

    How do you determine what firmware you have and if it has been updated? I have a Hopper and Joey (I think they are first generation) and when I go to settings there is no update information shown.

    Outdoor OTA No Longer Offered?

    I have several tvs and get some local channels via cheap indoor antennas. However, I have to subscribe to Dish locals anyway because my home theater has a projector. The Joey sends the signal via hdmi to my a/v receiver which in turn sends that signal to my projector, also via hdmi. The sound...

    Outdoor OTA No Longer Offered?

    I had the same problem. Dish told me they could not send me an antenna because it would not bring in the station. A friend who lives only a few miles from me had Dish send and I think even install an antenna and it worked fine. I decided to buy a cheap, $20 indoor antenna and it picked up the...

    TCM response re Closed Captioning

    Nothing works, nothing. There is no fix. The issue must be resolved between TCM and Dish and others affected. Well praise the Lord! I tried the fix one more time and viola! the captions appeared. I have done this half a dozen times with no success but this time it worked. Now the question...

    I've lost closed captioning on TCM. Am I alone?

    I just checked as well and no cc on TCM, even though the movie description shows cc. However, as someone said earlier the TCM app does have captions.

    Fox local channel no longer on Dish

    Yep, everything worked fine with the sports app. The transmission was about 30 seconds behind the live feed. Now, you are probably wondering how I got the live transmission despite the dispute which blacked out my local Fox channel and the "fact" that Dish refused to send me an ota antenna...

    Fox local channel no longer on Dish

    Yes, you are right. I tried early this morning and could not get anything but now I am getting soccer on both FS1 and FS2. There is a note on the guide that shows my local channel will be broadcast starting at 10:00 am central time. We shall see in just a little while.

    Fox local channel no longer on Dish

    Isn't this great. I got the fox app all set up on my Roku tv because my local fox affiliate and Dish are still in disagreement and I get no fox local for the Super Bowl. Now I find out Roku dropped all Fox programming apps. Back to dark bar with cold beer!!!!

    Fox local channel no longer on Dish

    I used Bobby's link and signed up using a different email addy as he suggested. I wanted it on my computer instead of changing everything up on my Roku account. The reason is that I can mirror my computer to my tv with an hdmi cable so all I need the tv for is basically a big screen monitor...

    Fox local channel no longer on Dish

    Yes, I suppose I could do that but my original plan B is starting to take shape. Dish will not resolve this problem with the local affiliate in time. Also, Dish says I am too far out in the sticks to qualify for an antenna (the antenna that they give some people will not be strong enough to...

    Fox local channel no longer on Dish

    I'm the one who started this thread and my local Fox channel still is not on due to the dispute. Looks like it will be resolved after the SB, if ever. I have a Roku tv and subscribe to the Fox Sports app which does indeed show the Super Bowl as an upcoming event. However, it states...
