    Transfer Timers

    Any way to transfer timers between receivers? I'm not worried about moving recordings to a new receiver (I tend to watch and not save), but I've been putting off getting one of my 622's replaced to fix the hdmi output because I don't want to spend the time remembering and recreating all the...

    Which switch is necessary for 5 satellite locations?

    I'm currently setup with 61.5, 110, 119 and 148 and a DP44. When I "upgrade" my 921 for $99, it sounds like I might have to pay the $99 if I need a DISH 1000 or not (if anyone has any official info on that, I'd appreciate it). So that said, if I have to pay for it anyway, I'd just as soon have...
