    *Updated* Super Joey Upgrades

    I just called to upgrade my 622s. I ordered two hoppers (one with sling), and 3 joeys. They said I could only get a super joey if I had 1 hopper on the account. Can this be modified. My appt is tomorrow (wed). I'd like 2 hoppers, super joeys and joey. Or better yet If I can get 3 hoppers...

    Remote Addresses Hoppers/Joeys

    Yep, too cumbersome. I used to my old OFA 10820 and it's macros. It's flawless now. Maybe they'll have a IR to Zigbee adapter that would do this for us losers who don't like change.

    Remote Addresses Hoppers/Joeys

    I did a little searching, but couldn't find an answer. Will the Hoppers/Joeys ever be updated to utilize the 32 different IR remote addresses like the older receivers??? I was going to upgrade, but I was told they are all on "1" when you enable IR. My installation would require all the...

    KTVN (CBS) guide data during Sarkes-Tarzian/Dish dispute

    I can't do that. the station runs at 100% full power from the main transmitter on top of Slide Mountain, NV (SW of Reno). No translators/repeaters in my area as I can see all but one of them for my area.

    KTVN (CBS) guide data during Sarkes-Tarzian/Dish dispute

    The channel hasn't technically been pulled. It's just running a continuous loop of the dish lady speaking their side of the dispute. The title of all the program slots on this channel are "Important News - Press Info! " The info shows "This channel is currently suspended. Sarkes Tarzian is...

    KTVN (CBS) guide data during Sarkes-Tarzian/Dish dispute

    I have about 4 of those stations as well. I spoke too soon, the subchannel info is gone now.

    KTVN (CBS) guide data during Sarkes-Tarzian/Dish dispute

    Ok, this is getting ridiculous. Can you folks at Dish uplink the guide data separately for this channel (2-01) so my timers can fire on the OTA station while you work the retransmission agreement? The subchannel (2-02) has guide data. I can't see why you can do the same for the main channel...

    No Uplink Reports...

    The good news in this week's uplink is KNPB HD is live in the Reno Market. Bad news is our CBS station KTVN is not due to the Sarkes deal gone bad. I wish they'd send the guide data so I can use the OTA feed while they work things out. The 2-02 sub channel is getting guide data I don't know...

    Dish may lose my local NBC?

    I can watch it KTVN (Reno CBS) OTA, but there's no guide data because dish is running the nag loop. I wish they'd at least publish that info so I can record my shows by name. I'm going to have to figure out old school manual timers now.

    10/19/2011 2:46pm - Uplink Activity Report - 102 changes

    When I called KNPB a couple years back, they've been giving Dish the HD feed for a while. Not sure what the issue really is. You should see the amount of black on the SD version. You have to "zoom" to get the 4:3 image. Can't wait. Hopefully "soon" isn't never.

    I wonder how long it takes to go from NA to available. I been watching the uplink reports more closely since KNPB (HD) was uplinked on Oct 5.

    There's a mountain in the way. I've tried. I can get reception 800ft west when I can see the tower around said mountain.

    Ditto that. I'm tired of the chopped up picture. I'm 800ft out of range for the OTA signal. Hopefully it's Available soon.

    Uplink PC Work In Progress

    Scott, My 17" HP laptop just did the same thing in the last couple weeks. It's not the screen, but the video chipset failing on the motherboard (integrated). There is a class action suit against HP and Nvidia regarding these failures. The NVIDIA GPU Litigation - Affected Models My laptop...

    Are you having Sling / DISH Remote Access Issues

    I can't connect to any of my three 622s. Dish's website says they all have a working broadband connection on the equipment page. From the dish.sling site, it just tries to connect. No success.

    GOOGLE & DISH to Collaborate

    It'd be nice to see it roll over to the 622/722 too. I mean, they have the USB photo viewer. I can't imagine it being too hard to incorporate unless they consider the 622/722 a dead platform for future features.

    GOOGLE & DISH to Collaborate

    I wonder if this will allow the HD DVRs to act as a network media player for one's personal network in addition to the web. I'd love to have access to my videos and music stored on my NAS and viewed on my TV. My current NMP is barely tolerable. Let's see what Dish and Google can do...

    Dish Pricing Update

    I think they need to give long term customers a discount per year of service on the monthly bill. A $1-2 for each year of retention. I hate seeing increases every year without any customer appreciation deals. The little free pay-per-view coupons aren't enough.
