    922 Upgrade price?

    Well I've been with Dish for right at a year, and was wondering if there was an upgrade discount to go from a 722 to a 922. I looked for a bit, and didn't see anything.

    Trying to re-activate DN Getting bounced around...

    I canceled Dish in March this year, and have decided that I need my TV back again, however, when I call the number 1888-884-2741 I get forwarded to another person, and that person forwards me back to where I originally came, and so on and so forth. Is there a more direct number I can call to get...

    Adding locals...

    I "moved" from Atl. to Charleston, WV earlier today, and I still have the locals from Atl.... I was curious, since the Charleston, WV locals are offered when I go in to edit my programming online, can I add them and not lose the Atl locals? The Atl ones are in Hd ;) but I really would like to...

    Transponder Signal quality ?

    I asked this in the main Dish forum, but it was probably better suited for this one.. I actually called and ordered directv, and they wont be here for two weeks... and the more I read, the more I think that their receiver and programming is not necessarily what I need... So I might cancel.. if...

    Thinking of going to Directv...

    Not out of bad blood, but maybe you guys can help... I live in zip 25880 which is ineligible to receive local chans except for one OTA. It is in 480i I believe lol... I did "move" to Atl for HD locals. I love the Pittsburgh Penguins... So much so that I bought the CI package just to catch...

    Thinking of switching from Dish...

    But I have some questions, and I thought this would be a great place to start. I'm looking to save money, and currently I have the Everything in pack from Dish. I was looking at the Plus! Hd Dvr package from D* and I believe it said it costs $72.99 a month.. but it does not include some of the...

    I've "moved" but want to add receivers...

    Is there any way to do this through dish'n it up? It seems to be a cheap way to do it... I was thinking about calling and having them ship it to my billing address instead of my "physical" location. It would be a HD dvr and it didn't have the shipped option on the page of options.. the regular...

    Since NYC has moved to transponder 15 :( I cannot receiver it any longer. i need something for physical location of zip code 25880...

    Spotbeam Range

    How far from the city the locals cover does the spotbeam reach in general? I'm thinking about Pennsylvania locals and/or D.C.

    "Moved" NYC... Heard about Atl...

    Should I move again for the ATL locals, or should I stick with NYC?? I also have the NHL CI package to watch Penguins games.. but they play the NY and NJ teams a lot so they get blacked out on the HD CI, and get broadcast on the SD NY locals. I wouldn't think they would worry about how often I...

    Do they have something similar to Caller id on broadband to figure out my true location if I used my broadband connection to "dial home"??

    Calm Before the Storm?

    Does anyone else think that our waiting for more HD is going to come to an end soon? I think Dish might have quite a bit up their sleeves.. There is no way they can sit back and not counter what D* is doing.

    One thing about the 360 that bugs me...

    On the original one anyway.. The lack of HDMI. I have a Sony TV which is not able to pick up a 1080p signal through vga or component. I have the HD-dvd add on for it as well, and it bites not being able to see the image in full 1080p glory. Anyone else share the same sentiment?? I also own...
