    Letter from Dish on Hardware Upgrade to Keep Locals

    Yep, I'm MPEG4 compliant. Hopper 3 and a couple of new Joey's. I'll see what they'll offer to do. I'm sure my wife would prefer a single dish solution, but I'm fine with a simple repoint. Thanks for the help everyone.

    Letter from Dish on Hardware Upgrade to Keep Locals

    Sorry for the delay in responding, but I've got the western arc (110,119,129) and a wing on 77 which was just for locals. I suppose they want to set me up with an eastern arc hybrid with 72.7 and 61.5. This would be nice because I've wanted to just go back to a single dish solution instead of...

    Letter from Dish on Hardware Upgrade to Keep Locals

    So, I got a letter from Dish asking me to call in to schedule a tech appointment to upgrade equipment to keep my locals (Louisville, KY). I've got the western Arc dish and a wing. Are the Louisville markets moving? Mark

    New issues, not sure if it is software or hardware related.

    Had similar problem on a bedroom Joey before and it was because the coax barrel was only hand tight. Got a small wrench and tightened it up properly. No issues since.

    I can't remember off the top of my head, but do the Joey 3's ship with a remote, and what version is it?

    Existing Customer Promotion

    Just called loyalty and got Karen from Colorado. Very nice CSR. Was able to get promotion the beginning of the thread. AT250 at $72.99 for 24 months. $12 for locals and $5 off the hopper fee. Total savings of $20 month. I also dropped protection pack (which I should have as early as last...

    Dish called me re: Signal strength?

    This happened twice to me. First time was several years ago when one of my LNB's had significant drift issues. They called and sent out a tech to replace the LNB at no charge. Second time was recently when they came out to hook up a wing dish for my locals after the Hopper 3 install. During...

    Hybrid LNB Wiring Diagrams

    Just an FYI, you'll have an extra wing dish when upgrading to H3. The new hybrid LNBF on eastern Arc only gets 61.5 and 72, so a wing dish at 77 will be needed for the locals. A western Arc Dish will work too (119/110/129) with the hybrid LNBF and a wing dish at 77. Though I was told that a...

    Official - I have a Hopper 3 Thread!

    Well, I pressed the issue at the end of the install and to me they sounded like hybrid WA is all that was available. Since their group has done 6-8 installs of Hopper 3 since Sunday, I'm thinking that they ran out and are just using western Arc for now. The wing dish is fine with me since a...

    Official - I have a Hopper 3 Thread!

    Ordering from DIRT was smooth from Chris S. Got in touch with him on 2/1 and scheduled for 2/2. Dish called several times to confirm appointment the night before and that morning. Installer called early and said he would be early if that was OK. Not a problem being 2 hours early. MyDish...

    called to cancel service

    I cancelled the service yesterday. I was expecting to be disconnected several times and having to hem and haw through offers. Surprisingly, it took less than 5 minutes and had confirmation e-mail before I hung up. I had the $199/yr all access (Sirius side) and they first offered all access...

    Question 622 EHD to Hopper with sling

    Thanks for the help, but I figured it out. You have to be viewing the menu on the Hopper in order to get to the transfer menu. The transfer menu does not come up if you try to access it via the Joey's menu system. I figured I could be on a Joey in the house somewhere and transfer things...

    Question 622 EHD to Hopper with sling

    Hey Bobby: No, the EHD is plugged into the Hopper. I'm trying to transfer recordings to/from the hopper to the external hard drive. I'm just trying to do it via the Joey in the living room. Joey in living room is only hooked to ethernet and MoCA. -Mark

    Question 622 EHD to Hopper with sling

    However, I can view and play anything from that external drive. It shows up in the DVR guide as External Drive 1. I just do not seem to be able to transfer recordings back and forth. -Mark
