    Retired - Downsizing Suggestions

    Thanks to all who responded. All good suggestions. Didn't think a simple request would create such a furor though. Flex Pack + Locals. Saves me about $120 a month. Regarding the Full Time RVing post, wish I could but cannot for medical reasons. But, my second receiver is in my motor home...

    Retired - Downsizing Suggestions

    Recently retired. Dish bill is $174.78/month. Way too much now. Now getting Americas Everything, Locals, Multi-Sport, and 1 extra receiver. Would like to keep Locals and the extra receiver. Appreciate any suggestions you might have to get the most bang for my Social Security buck. Joe

    GEOSATpro A/V Cable for Micro HD STB

    Looking to resurrect my Micro HD receiver to use with a composite video tv. Need the A/V output cable that I thought I had. (Maybe not. Always used with hdmi) A camcorder cable will not work because the 3.5mm plug is too short. The last ring, the ground, is longer. Where can I get one? Google...

    AMIKO Amiko A3 Owners Thread

    I checked only one item on the list to backup. A3 went immediately back to the previous Backup/Restore screen, same as before. Tried with another backup file. Ditto. Tried another backup file. Same result. Also tried checking several items on the list. This is what started the whole mess to...

    AMIKO Amiko A3 Owners Thread

    In an effort to salvage my A3, I did the NAND Recovery. However, when I tried to load a backup, it started to load ,quit, and went back to the previous screen without finishing the backup. Tried several dates of backup files going back to the original backup. Tried files stored on the HD as well...

    Winegard "Roadtrip" on RV w/ VIP211

    I am purchasing a motorhome that has a Winegard "Roadtrip" mobile satellite antenna. I have two VIP211 receivers at home. Thought I would use one of them on the RV. Other than hooking up the receiver, is there anything that I need to do regarding my account? Let Dish know? And/Or? Or?. How...

    AMIKO A3 One channel, video only, then dead. Had to power cycle.

    Turned on A3 tonight, locked up on BOOT. Power cycled and restarted OK. I do backups to HDD and to flash drive any day I make a change of some sort, no matter how small. Joe

    AMIKO A3 One channel, video only, then dead. Had to power cycle.

    Turned on A3 last night. Got video but no audio on channel that I had left it on the previous evening. Changed channel, same sat. No video or audio. Changed to several other channels. Same result. Went back to original channel. Nothing. Pushing RCU buttons at random looking for some life. At...

    Polarity not changing - ASC1 & Amiko A3

    Back in business, finally. Thank all who responded for your expertise and patience., especially Brian. Power cycled the ASC1 when I got home from work. Appeared to be holding the correct polarities when changing xpndrs and, in fact was and is holding. While on 135W I adjusted the skew to see if...

    Polarity not changing - ASC1 & Amiko A3

    OK, Brian, Starting to make sense. With the weather here in OH (snow, ice, 10deg F), it will be difficult to go out to the dish to rotate the feedhorn. But at least I should be able to get things inside working electrically. With the A3 set to 13/18V (Automatic Mode) and saved, the ASC1 Cursor...

    Polarity not changing - ASC1 & Amiko A3

    When I set the A3 to 13/18V and leave the ASC1 at 18V, the Vertical xpndrs disappear. Still no Joy on Horizontal. After my recent post, I manually moved the ASC1 Skew pointer to Vertical. Horizontal xpndrs came in strong. So, I can get both H and V xpnders if I manually change it on the ASC1's...
