    Well. First of all, my story, is a compilation of several situations that occurred. I did not go into the die hard details of every phone call and actions taken. BigThrust, your reply is appreciated and since you are not familiar with everything that occurred you are most certainly entitled...

    Ohh Dish :-(

    Well. They lost my business, again. Short abbreviated story: Dish Customer for about 15 months. Called mid-January to cancel after deciding to give local provider Comcast a chance and save some money. Sent boxes and LNB'S to Dish as requested by account specialist and got a prompt...

    Dish allowed me to return !!

    Well guys, after a not so very bright decision to switch from Dish to my local cable provider (Adelphia/Comcast) (Related post http://www.satelliteguys.us/showthread.php?t=89182 ) I eventually managed to speak to an account specialist/CSR at Dish to kindly ask to be able to come back without...

    What have I done !!!!!!!!!

    Thanks guys, I did call and had a comcast technician come over. He installed a signal booster at the outside box and basically said that the channels 01 to 99 are esentially analog and therefore the image would not be as great as digitalized satellite streams. In the end that didn't do much, as...

    What have I done !!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for your feedback, both positive and not so positive (LOL). Actually, I've been a member for about a year now and do read the posts almost daily. I did not post much because I never really had a problem with Dish, except a horrible experience when I switched to their new MPEG4 receiver...

    What have I done !!!!!!!!!

    Guys, thank you very much for your inputs. It looks like I'll be paying about 25 dollars less with DirecTV for the same channels that I had with Dish. Dish does have more HD channels (at this time) but most of that are the VOOM channels that I hardly ever watched anyway. I'm big time into movies...

    What have I done !!!!!!!!!

    Thank you boba, however I havent taken the plunge yet, just soliciting inputs to make an educated decision. Dish and DirecTV are very much alike, however, I'm very interested in DirecTV's plans to significantly increase their HD programming later this year. Just hope that their plans dont get...

    What have I done !!!!!!!!!

    No, I returned all the equipment and the LNB's, had an installer come and take all the dishes out and the multiswitches and helped me pack them and they are already recieved by Dish, and they already issued my refunds. The only thing left in my roof was the bases for the dish arm as the...

    What have I done !!!!!!!!!

    Well, In a nutshell, I was a Dish customer for 14 months. I had just about everything they offered (HD,All movie channels, Playboy, etc.). After some "common sense" thinking I figured that I was paying too much for what I had, $160 per month. I'm entitled to basic cable which is included in my...

    Voice running a microsecond behind on my 211.

    I know this must have been discussed somewhere in this forum, but, if you will , bear with me. When watching my 211 receiver I noticed that the voice coming out does not quite match what's coming out of the actor's voices. It seems to be about a microsecond behind and it is pretty annoying...

    I hope this is not a dumb question.

    I always do a weekly "Test Switch" and all my receivers (I have a 211,622 and 625). All the time they are successful. This morning I tried thia once again, however I was at the satellite point dish page and decided to cycle between the satellites Im supposed to get (119,110 and 61.5 which...
