    VIP612 DVR recordings after canceling

    Given my aversion to W10 security, I recommend trying W7. Did you say it spins up automatically? If not, you need to get it spun up before it's recognized by Windows.

    Looters raiding LA cargo trains of Amazon, UPS shipments

    Why are you guys so anxious to shoot everybody (or drag them down the tracks) without due process? :eeek

    anybody else have NO guide data for any channel for today and tomorrow?

    This is not the only problem Jim is having with his HwS these days. But I haven't heard of either of these failures before. Jim, do you still "see" all satellites?

    I have no such problem with the guide on my H3. Eastern Arc

    is Dish Anywhere not showing DVR recordings for anyone else?

    I never heard of such a limitation, though I can't remember ever testing it. Supposedly it's one Sling stream/Hopper independent of any direct Hopper or Joey viewers.

    Dish and DirecTV once again in talks despite antitrust.

    It's all in the H3, or the Duo, or the Wally. Remember the existing satellites all still work with older receivers.

    Gas Price Info With National Gas Temperature Map

    Still the same price here in northern VA. But yesterday I drove up to Berwick, PA and found numerous gas stations in fairly rural PA offering regular at $3.15.

    Well, nuts. My copy says it was last modified on August 15, 2006. I wonder if you got an older version that doesn't work for mpeg4 disks. Are you running W10? I've had a lot of apps from W7 days that won't install or simply won't run correctly on W10.

    New ATSC 3.0 USB Dongle

    I agree this is a good product. But I question what you meant with the thread title. Does this plug into my ATSC 1.0 TV? I think most HDTVs these days have USB jacks, but I didn't know any of them could control a USB tuner.

    Hopper 3 in Enclosed Cabinet?

    Yes, since the remote uses 2.4GHz (Zigbee) frequencies. Mine is in an equipment room in the basement, and the remote on the main level reaches it just fine. I couldn't see a recording light on my H3 even if it lit up like a Christmas tree! ;)

    Dish and DirecTV once again in talks despite antitrust.

    I've been enjoying Farscape on Comet for the first time in many years. We just met Chiana. :D The satellite feed has a guide; my two OTA versions of Comet do not. :crying

    Hooper Starting Up Everyday at the Same Time

    1st, since you say EST, are you on Eastern Arc? In that case, 2 cables to a dph42 will give you H3 capabilities. The normal time for a reboot of my J3's is shortly after 3AM. This takes much longer than 5 seconds, though. So perhaps you are seeing something else I have never experienced.

    This is worth a try. Remove the internal disk, put it in a USB adapter, plug that into your PC, and run a program whose name escapes me at the moment. PVRExplorer Pro? I may have a copy stored on my NAS somewhere.

    VIP612 DVR recordings after canceling

    I think you are right, but I don't remember Dish doing this in the past... My memory may be from a long time ago; I don't remember exactly. If Dish killed the ability to access your disk using that 612, then if there is any chance at all to get these recordings back, it will be by accessing the...

    Did you still have the 612 on the dish when you cancelled? I fear a kill signal that I don't remember existing before... These were recordings on the internal disk? How were you trying to view them? We need to know the exact failure mode.
