    Losing HD Absolute. Any suggestions?

    The wife showed me the letter when I was in town for the holidays. Really disappointing. Three and some odd years doesn't qualify a package as being refered to a "grandfathered". We decided to take a chance and ante-up for the new "HD Only" that didn't have much to begin with, in the hopes that...

    I couldn't get the SAT Mode into Learning Mode either.

    Dish Network 21.0 Learning Remote Instructions

    I want to program the colored buttons in SAT Mode. Like kstuart suggested many posts ago, I also prefer to use my TV's speakers as the general default. Then for movies, music channels, prime-time dramas etc., I prefer to use my stereo receiver/good speakers. IN SATELLITE MODE: I'd like to...

    Dish Network 21.0 Learning Remote Instructions

    It is what it is: a cheap tv for the bedroom. It was that way with the Olevia's original remote, too. I don't know if it's poor IR reception on the tv's part or poor transmission from the original remote. For all I know, the 21.0 may have learned weak signals from the original remote. I'm not...

    WD 640GB EHD almost full. Recommendations for bigger HD?

    Now that is helpful info, but do we have confirmation from fellow forum members that a single drive over 1TB is working reliably. It sounds like 1TB is confirmed. Thanks for the link. Yes. I don't want to lose my saved programs but, as you said, drives are are more reliable these days and it...

    Dish Network 21.0 Learning Remote Instructions

    My Volume, Mute, On/Off, and 5-way Nav functions respond fairly well. But functions like Sleep, Input Selections, Brightness, etc: is like shooting craps. I might get a response every 4th time I press the button. And yes, that's pointing right at the IR window and allowing a second or two...

    Fox News HD Up and Running

    I'm not trying to convince anyone here to share my opinion about FNC's political position relative to the middle. In fact I haven't even declared what that opinion is. I simply stated that I prefer Fox News. Furthermore it's not my goal to have a neutral, or even average, opinion. I agree...

    Fox News HD Up and Running

    You seem determined to convince me that I should accept CNN as a reasonable and unbiased standard for tv journalism. Well, I don't. As for the people off the street, they can dictate what news channel I should be satisfied with when they pay my Dish Network bill every month. No need to pity me...

    Fox News HD Up and Running

    You may feel that CNN is general and not loaded with liberal bias, but I don't. I watch it, but I can only take so much of it. How is MSNBC's AT200 position proof that they are not treating "left" and "right" stations differently? I don't know that there is intent to make Fox News require...

    Fox News HD Up and Running

    Oh, I found it at 9477. RED, Damn you Dish! I see three useless channels in a row that I'd easily trade for one Fox News: CNBC, CNN, GREEN. So is Dish going to continue to charge extra for Fox News, while CNBC & CNN are included in the cheaper, more easily available teir? Meanwhile libs...

    WD 640GB EHD almost full. Recommendations for bigger HD?

    I got a Western Digital 640GB Hard Drive and put it in a Antec MX-1 enclosure in May '08. It's worked flawlessly, but now it's getting full (Cinemax for a penny). I paid $100 for my WD back then and just yesterday saw it for $60. I thougt about getting another since the first has been so great...

    Dish Network 21.0 Learning Remote Instructions

    Oh, I was so fired up when I learned of this new remote! We got an Olevia 227V two years ago for the bedroom. It was a pretty good value for the time. But I realized soon after how much I detested the fact that I had to juggle two remotes just to manage the Olevia's volume. I've commented to...

    Fox News HD Up and Running

    HELLO, Good to hear!:clap However I'm not seein' it.:( I don't even know what my programming package is called now. I signed up for HD Only plus my Locals last year after it became available. I haven't changed anything since. Does that make me "HD Absolute", "HD Only Turbo"...what? And I'm...

    FOX NEWS HD - Where are you?

    After I posted, I realized that I typed MSNBC instead of CNBC. Is there really any difference? Anyway, I edited that as soon as I looked it up to confirm CNBC is also in the basic tier. So that's at least two liberal-biased news channels. That's just the way libs like it though: readily...

    FOX NEWS HD - Where are you?

    Funny how liberals often engage the mantra of free speech when it suits them. But, of course, that only applies to people whose free speech is congruent with their liberal ideas. Besides, if you're not interested in Fox News, then why are you even in this thread, other than to persecute those...

    Anyone here tried to use Antec MX-1 and SATA hard drive as external storage for 722?

    I just installed the WD 640GB hard drive in the MX-1. Called to activate the feature on my 722. It formatted to 595GB. And recorded stuff is transfering as I type. Easy.

    Anyone here tried to use Antec MX-1 and SATA hard drive as external storage for 722?

    It's not that I want to jump on a Seagate bashing bandwagon. But, from what I've been reading lately about hard drives, WD is the way to go. I'm not a gambling man, I'll just go with the herd on this one. I ordered the Antec MX-1 for $30 + sh from Frys this weekend. Mostly great reviews...

    Anyone here tried to use Antec MX-1 and SATA hard drive as external storage for 722?

    Well, yesterday after posting, I found the MX-1 at Frys for $30 and pulled the triggger. I figured, if I wait, they'd be out of stock by the time I did my normal obsessive amount of research. If the WD AAKS series is particularly reliable, I'll shop for that. Thanks.

    Anyone here tried to use Antec MX-1 and SATA hard drive as external storage for 722?

    I read great reviews about the Antec MX-1 External Enclosure. It's actively cooled with a 40mm fan and quiet. It has a USB and eSATA interface. It's around $60 with shipping, I missed a great deal on it last month after MIR. I'll watch out for another deal. I was thinking that I'd be better of...

    Does 722 S-Video output HD signal to tv?

    Cool. I'll do some searching to find those threads.
