    I've got a strange problem with TV2 just shutting down at random times-->

    Just to update- I spoke with my next door neighbor and he hasn't changed anything, but mentioned that he has just recently been experiencing the same type of problems with his TV 2, along with unexpected channel changes when he's not even touching his remote. Strangely enough, I have started...

    Got a call from "Dish Network Loyalty Dept" for 50% off. Is this legit?

    Ahh, yes. I didn't read that right. I thought the OP went directly online to confirm. Sorry about that.

    I got the same e-mail too- the day after I saw this post.

    Got a call from "Dish Network Loyalty Dept" for 50% off. Is this legit?

    The OP said they initiated a chat with DISH online and the CSR confirmed the offer was legitimate? WTH??? Something definitely is stinking there. I hope the transcript was saved. I mean, after that a customer's concerns should be relieved. Wow.

    That could be. It wouldn't hurt to ask him. Thanks!

    Our next door neighbor has DISH, but they've had it for years as have we and we've never had this problem before. I'll check the settings. Maybe they've reset somehow. Thanks.

    remote control cleaning question

    My "wheel" around the select button on one of my remotes doesn't work properly (channel up won't work at all and the others are sluggish). What's this about free with protection plan? I've always paid $7/month for the protection plan, but when I went on the DISH site it looks like they want to...

    I've got a strange problem with TV2 just shutting down at random times-->

    The receiver is a VIP722k. TV1 is fine, but TV2 will just shut down without warning. When I say "shut down" I mean it just goes to the screensaver/receiver is off mode where it flashes those tips about navigation and stuff on the screen. If I happen to be watching something that I've recorded...

    DISH may lose WBNS Channel 10 in Columbus, Ohio

    HA!HA! I didn't know about the legalities either. Oh well, at least Zanesville got a CBS affiliate. Hopefully they can understand the "dialect". :)

    Can someone help me with some general information?

    UH-oh. I actually live about three miles outside of Athens in The Plains, OH. I didn't think it would make any difference, but I looked it up and it is SIGNIFICANT! That's incredible (to me anyway) that the chance would be that drastic. And just my luck, it's negative, not positive. :(...

    Can someone help me with some general information?

    Hey, thanks for that link Iceberg. That's interesting. It looks like I would have mostly grey areas, but I do see a CBS affiliate in red- WOWK, that I'm familiar with and I like WSAZ, which we haven't been able to view since switching from Time Warner Cable to DISH. We've been with DISH for a...

    Can someone help me with some general information?

    Thank you all for the replies. I didn't realize locals would be tough to get. Yes, we live in rural Ohio so, lots of the Appalachian foothills surround us and I'm pretty sure a rooftop antenna won't get it. I wasn't just asking because of the one particular channel. We've lost a few this...

    Can someone help me with some general information?

    I'm interested in FTA. My interest was prompted by my local CBS affiliate holding DISH hostage for a 450% price increase which ended up with us not having that particular channel. Assuming this type of thing will begin happening more frequently in the future I'd like to have a FTA option to...

    DISH may lose WBNS Channel 10 in Columbus, Ohio

    :mad:WBNS posted this--> http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2012/08/29/wbns-dish-customers-notice.html My comment to them: I'm sorry WBNS / Dispatch, but this is all on YOU and your greed. I'm hoping we can get a CBS feed from Charleston/Huntington, WV. Frankly I don't care where it comes...

    Yes, it's gone for right now. This is ridiculous and it's all on Dispatch/WBNS and their greed.

    MLB Strike Zone to Launch

    More baseball is GOOD! I just wish more games were available. I had MLB.tv last year (because DISH didn't have much available). Well, sort of had it. I paid for it and it didn't work. There were thousands of complaints on their forums, but you couldn't see that it didn't work for most...

    3 MONTHS FREE PLAYBOY

    I was just talking to a DISH tech tonight and he offered them all to me. I didn't even ask about any promotions as I was calling about a problem with my DVR.

    I hope my 722K isn't dying. I may need DIRT help here...

    I called DISH tonight and talked with tech. I was right. Its near death. A replacement is being sent.

    722K Freezing up ALOT

    Yeah. I called DISH this evening and to make a long story short, it was determined that ours was near death and they're sending us out a replacement as well. We're going to lose some recordings, but nothing we can't live without. ;) We don't have an EHD and can't really afford to get one...
