    Switching from Directv to Dish

    I could run an ethernet cable to the Hopper but was hoping just to connect thru the wireless signal. I do have a good wireless signal there, so should I be ok?

    Switching from Directv to Dish

    I am a football fan, but I live in WV, so we do not have any local pro sports teams, so I don't think blackouts apply to me.

    Switching from Directv to Dish

    Hi all, I've had Directv for years but my ISP offers bundled tv service thru Dish. I wanted to save some money, so I have it set to be installed on Monday. I'm getting the Top 250, a Hopper with sling, and a Joey for my second TV. Anything that I need to know prior to installation that I...

    Best Equipment Setup

    So I called them back and they offered me a Genie upgrade for free but I have had $20 a month credit on my accounts that just expired the day that I called. She told me that the best they could offer then was a $5 a month credit, so my bill would be going up $15 a month. That's more than I...

    Best Equipment Setup

    Thanks for the reply's guys. My question would be, would it cost me extra fees for two dvr's? I don't really need that many tuners but if it didn't cost extra sounds like that would be my best option.

    Best Equipment Setup

    I have been with DirecTV for over 4 years. I have never updated my equipment during that time. My internet service provider has bundles with Dish Network that would save me a little money and I could get a Hopper for free. I have had Dish Network in the past and I would prefer to stay with...

    Blaze

    I sent an email to directv to ask them to add it last week. The response said they did not have plans to add it as of yet but would forward my suggestion on to the higher ups.

    Taking Directv Receiver on Vacation

    I'm getting the 771A error, problem communicating with dish. It's getting 0's on all the signal meters. This is also my 2nd receiver from my house, I left the main HR24 at home. This is a H21 that had the whole home dvr setup at home. Do I need to disable that before it would work?

    Taking Directv Receiver on Vacation

    Ok, I'm in Florida now and I brought my box. I can't get it to get a signal. Mine is HD and his sattellite dish is the old type. What do I need to change in my setup to get it to work?

    Taking Directv Receiver on Vacation

    Thanks for the reply! That should work great then. I really only want it for ESPN so I can watch the WVU/LSU game. Don't want to miss that.

    Taking Directv Receiver on Vacation

    Hi, We are going to Florida for vacation in a couple of weeks. We will be staying in a relatives house that has directv. He travels back and forth and takes his receiver with him when he leaves. He said I could take my receiver with me and use it there with no problem. Is that correct? Thanks!

    Free Stars and Showtime

    I signed up for Directv in September and got the free 3 months of Stars and Showtime. It shows up on my bill for $24 and I get a credit for $24. When this expires will they automatically take this off my account or do I have to cancel it myself? I don't want to get charged for them. Thanks, Jason

    Thinking of switching

    Does anybody have a link to a channel comparison between Directv and Dish Network? It seems like I saw one somewhere on here before. I want to see which channels I may lose/gain by switching to Directv. Anyway, I have been with Dish Network for almost two years now. I have a Vip 722 and 211k...
