    OTA module troubles

    Hi. I have a hopper with sling with an ota module, which I got back in march. It's worked fine up until now. Every day my ota channels disappear from the guide. I unplug the module and plug it back in then restart the hopper. The ota channels come back and it's fine the rest of the night but the...

    "moving" question in Indy

    Hi everyone. I live in Indy, and recently lost WTHR. I've thought about "moving" to Terre Haute in order to get their locals, but I'd actually rather "move" to Dayton so that I can watch Bengals games. (I'm originally from there :).) I'm not sure if I'm in the spotbeam for that, though...

    Excellent Dish repair experience

    Last night, I called Dish tech support because I wasn't getting 119. After a few obligatory tests, they scheduled someone to come out first thing this morning. The repair guy (David) arrived at 8:15 and within 15 minutes diagnosed a bad port on one of the LNBs. He didn't have the part with him...

    upgrading to HD, but not really

    I currently have a 622 and a 522, with the Classic Bronze HD package, plus the Platinum HD package (I think that's what they're called now). The 522 is serving two standard def TVs, and the 622 is serving an HDTV and standard def TV. Anyway, I'm looking to save some money on programming and...

    Two weeks to BSG Razor

    I just sent this plea to ceo@echoster to add SciFi HD. Not that it will do any good.

    Made the "move" to Denver, but a question...

    I moved from Indianapolis to get HD locals, plus Denver Broncos games every week. The move went well and everything is coming in like it's supposed to. One question, though: Now the schedule and receiver time are on local Denver time, which is two hours behind where I am. I thought the time...

    Good installation experience!

    I had my Superdish swapped out for a Dish 1000+ yesterday. Actually, the installer said he didn't have to replace the whole thing, just the LNBs, and run an additional line to the switch. That surprised me a little, but hey, it works! It's pulling in the four sats it's supposed to! I'm now...

    Well, I've had better Customer Service experiences...

    I called Dish yesterday to enable external USB storage. "External what?" the first CSR said. Not a good sign. "You know, hooking up an external hard drive to my 622?" "Okay, I should be able to help you with that..." then a lengthy pause "I'm not able to contact your receiver, is it on?" "Yes."...

    Do I have this right?

    Hi folks, I've done a bunch of research, and I just want to run this past the experts here. Currently, I have the Top 100 package, with locals and HD. I have a Superdish pointed at 110, 119, and 121, and a second dish pointed at 61.5. I would like to change to the Top 100+ package to get...

    LNB "drifting"?

    This is strange. I did a system info on my 522, and the four sat signals (110, 119, 121, and 61.5) all showed green, but instead of saying "Good," it said something like "LNB drifting." A few minutes later, I did the same thing on my 622, and it said everything was "Good" -- no drifting. Of...

    Smallville timer started late

    Now I'm kinda mad. The timer for Smallville on my 622 (which was scheduled to start at 7:55 pm on my local OTA HD affiliate) didn't start until 8:13 pm, so I missed the first part of the show. I checked the timer itself, and sure enough it's set up to start at 7:55 pm (as it has been for the...

    Indianapolis HD locals

    I got my 622 installed yesterday here in Indianapolis, and the installer said that Indy HD locals are coming July 26 (though it was a "you didn't hear it from me" kind of comment). Not sure if that contradicts any other info on this site, but I just wanted to report what he said.
