    More 61.5 HD Migrations Coming...

    Just to give the update - all is good. The Tech was great (direct Dish employee/tech). After we talked initially, he went outside and called Dish support himself as well has his supervisor - got them to cancel the original order and create a new one correctly for a migration. He installed a...

    More 61.5 HD Migrations Coming...

    I too am in this boat. Called the CSR on Wednesday night, she had no clue what was going on but said they would send someone out on Friday. I read this thread yesterday and figured by the time the tech arrived on Friday, all would be good. Well, . . . tech just arrived, said he had no clue...

    722 Reboots - 4 Times Yesterday

    And, . . . this 722 was almost useless last night, likely internal temperature related. Constantly would reboot after only a few minutes of use. So bad, we stopped using it (and missed our ability to record one of our shows). Called Dish - they are sending a replacement. Hopefully - this is...

    722 Reboots - 4 Times Yesterday

    Thanks for the responses. Answers to all comments, . . . Both TV and DVR, . . . last night twice while I was recording one show - watching live TV. Once while only watching live TV, . . . other while in delayed live mode. Tonight - it just rebooted twice while watching a recorded show. I...

    722 Reboots - 4 Times Yesterday

    OK - We've had our 722 for about 6 weeks now. I noticed a couple of reboots the first few weeks - then fairly stable. Yesterday, the box rebooted 4 times (twice while recording a single 90 minute show) - vary annoying. :mad: I've searched the forums - doesn't seem to be a common issue...

    722 PCM Audio Complete 'Loss'

    OK - got my 722 a few weeks ago. I noticed late last week once that I lost all audio on 'TV1' from all the SD satellite channels. TV2, HD channels and OTA digital channels were OK. Next day - everything was working so let it be. Last night this happened again. Only this time I spend a...

    Dish 722: Control TV1 with TV2 remote? (HD in 2 rooms)

    Could someone please describe how to do this. I would really like to do this while in dual mode (use IR in main room, UHF in another room to control TV1). I could neither figure it out by surfing the menus - or find out how to do this in the manual.

    Versus

    Not sure, . . . but I currently have The Golf Channel ala carte. I was told this is no longer possible to do this way and I was grandfathered into it. And, . . . because Versus/The Golf Channel share a common HD channel - I do not get that common HD channel. Stinks - because I'm paying $4.99...

    When Do We Get The New September Channels?

    Isn't the real question, . . . which September? Sorry, . . . been with Dish way too long I guess. :)

    Dish 'N it Up Rebate

    :):):):):) Me too - lots of adds, deletes, partial fees, partial credits, etc. In addition to the equipment changes, I made some programming changes as well. Good luck walking through it - I got through mine, but took awhile to understand what was going on. I will say - they were nice...

    Dish 'N it Up Rebate

    That's my understanding, . . . $100 rebate and 6 months free HD. BTW - the rebate form I provided the link to is what the CSR told me to fill out for the $100 rebate. FWIW - I just got my 722 receiver installed yesterday. So, . . . I looked at my bill activity this morning to see if all...

    Dish 'N it Up Rebate

    That, . . . and all the folks that fail to claim the rebate too. There is an art to rebates, . . . many companies out there that do this as a "service" for retailers. Retailer pays them a set fee per rebate product sold, . . . then they 'pad' their profit from those that fail to claim the...

    Dish 'N it Up Rebate

    Yea it is confusing. I don't recall if the CSR that took the order mentioned it was a one time, or a $10 over 10 type rebate. All she said was it was a $100 rebate on the 'upfront' payment - plus "free HD for 6 months (worth $120)". I might have been assuming the rebate was $10 over 10 (or...

    Dish 'N it Up Rebate

    Just printed out the form for my rebate for a 722 upgrade in the works (install is scheduled for later today). Looks like this will be a one time credit to my account (from the rebate form) and the CSR that took the work order, said it would be $100. Sure is better then the $10 for 10...

    Activation Fee Nightmare

    I seriously doubt the CC company would allow for an additional charge for disputing a charge - especially one where DN failed to deliver on the service promised. If they do add another charge - dispute that one too. FWIW - I have had very good success with the few disputed charges I have...

    What Type Of Dish

    mtman6698 - don't know your specifics, . . . but I can tell you that DISH came out and took care of a dish update for me a few years ago. Locals were moved around a bit and dish was REQUIRED to add a new sat dish - on their nickel - so that I could receive all the channels (they were channels I...

    Upgrade to 722 Scheduled for 8/22

    Wow Rich - didn't expect that, . . . especially from someone that doesn't know me or know how I conduct myself during business discussion. Thanks MRPLOW - I appreciate it that you answered my question. Please let me know how the install goes.

    Upgrade to 722 Scheduled for 8/22

    Rich - could I ask you a favor. Could you please confirm for me your upfront charge on your CC when it shows up (mine is in the on-line history already) and that you in fact receive a 722 on Wednesday when they complete the install. I went around in circles with the CSRs last week on the...

    Dish Locals vs OTA Locals

    Yes - and before, I had a 508/6000 combo so was fortunate to have a DVR fee free receiver up to now so never a need to look at the DVR advantage pak. Anyway, we discussed this today and have decided that you are all RIGHT!!!! :) - Amazing! We didn't consider that we might desire to...

    Dish Locals vs OTA Locals

    Thanks for the feedback - the DVR advantage pack with AT100 nets out to $0.98 savings if I understand it correctly. Sound like most though believe there is enough added value to keep the locals for the guide info. We'll give it some thought.
