    Help going from two receivers to one

    Yeah, it looks like eBay has some better prices on the remotes. Other than needing to purchase additional remotes, does the proposed setup in my OP sound like it would work?

    Help going from two receivers to one

    Thank you. When I return the 622, will I also be required to return the remotes? And if so, what is the current cost of the 21.0 remote?

    Help going from two receivers to one

    Cool. But if you go to UHF on TV1, can you also use UHF for TV2 at the same time?

    Help going from two receivers to one

    In an effort to reduce my monthly cost for Dish, I'm investigating changing my setup from one VIP722K and one VIP622 to just one VIP722K. I have (2) HDTV's and (2) SDTV's that I would like to power. My plan is to eliminate the 622 and run all 4 TV's on the 722K. To do that, I plan to use the...

    Full Screen Program Guide no longer an option - thanks Dish!

    It makes perfect sense, and if I recall correctly was the logic behind why Tivo opted to not show any video when in their "Now Playing" list. Only once has this been a problem for me; my wife and I turned on the American Idol results show a few weeks ago and saw the bottom three before I...

    Full Screen Program Guide no longer an option - thanks Dish!

    I think the thing that irks me about changes like this is that it removes user choice. I personally have no use for the guide with no video, but just because I don't use it doesn't mean other people don't. I mean, who was it hurting? Was it that difficult to support? And then to justify its...

    VIP722 SW Release L685

    Not sure if it's the same thing, but for some reason, my 722K suddenly began recording every episode of Ninja Warrior, even though the timer has been set for years to only record new episodes without any problem. I'm going to try deleting and re-adding the timer.

    Dear Friends... (A Note about the Sling Adapter Promotion)

    I'm sure that's the reasoning given, but more likely, they're hoping that in 45 days you'll have forgotten all about submitting the rebate. ;)

    free Cinemax for 30 days

    Just checked the link above. Yesterday it said this offer expired on 5/17/11. Now it says "Offer valid through 1/31/12 and subject to change without notice." Go figure.

    I just did this as well via chat. Took less than 60 seconds. Thanks for the info!

    Disney sues Dish again

    If Dish is footing the bill for all of the additional subscribers, then I can't see that there's a problem. But if they're trying to stretch out the "free weekend" thing for a whole year without any extra compensation to Starz, then I think they're in trouble. If the former is true and they're...

    Replacement Receiver

    I just wanted to thank you all for your responses. I just did the online chat to do the exchange, and the RMA now shows up under "My Shipments" on the Dish site as being shipped to my billing address. Thanks for your help!

    Replacement Receiver

    Thanks I'll probably do this over their online chat, as I've found emailing myself a transcript of the chat is a fool proof way to prove what was said and by whom. This saved me during the FX blackout, as I was promised a $5/month credit for 6 months via an online chat with the loyalty...

    Replacement Receiver

    Good plan. My wife has some movies on there she wants to keep. Hopefully the hard drive works OK long enough to get the stuff she wants.

    Replacement Receiver

    Thanks! I really didn't want to have to "move" and then "move" again just to get a new receiver sent to me.

    Replacement Receiver

    I have a question I think I know the answer to, but I'd like to ask it anyway to see if I'm right... Last fall, I "moved" to Pittsburgh, PA, which is about 90 minutes from where I actually live, so I could see all of the Steelers games and so my kids could get PBS in HD. My 622 has been rock...
