    The Tablo with commercial skip looks great, but...

    I purchased a used 4 tuner about 6 months ago and I love it. Added a 4 TB external hard drive for essentially unlimited storage. We live about 45 miles from the Atlanta TV transmitters and use an external Wingard antenna to receive all the Atlanta channels and subchannels perfectly and have...

    DISH COVERAGE OF OLYMPICS

    Was checking this thread to see if Dish carried the Olympic 3D channel. It apears that Dish did not as I expected. I changed from Dish to ATT UVerse about 3 months ago and have really enjoyed the Olympic 3D channel. It appears that the only 3D on Dish in the foreseable future are $6.95 PPV...

    Is Dish going to provide the NBC 3D Channel for the Olympics?

    I switched from Dish to ATT UVerse 3 months ago. I am well pleased with UVerse and am getting a 3D TV next Monday and will be able to watch the Olympics in 3D. UVerse also has a number of free 3d movies on demand (Starz and HBO) and occasional 3D movies on Starz and HBO. Probably not as much...

    Uverse Review

    My experience and evaluation is similiar. I have had Uverse 18 mpbs service for 3 years. Added u300 TV (NEW high capacity DVR) with 4 additional receivers and telephone service 5 weeks ago. The DVR failed after one day, got replacement the next day and have had no problems since. Have 3 HD...

    Dish channel line up vs AT&T U-Verse channel line up

    I made the switch from Dish to UVerse TV and Phone. Already had UVerse internet for 3 years. Got a great deal for 1st year with the new UVerse service. After that my bundled service will be about $40 per month less than I have been paying for the Dish service with a few more channels plus...

    How many subscribers will Dish lose to DirectTV Sunday Ticket?

    Directv must be loosing a substantial amount of money on ST. I appear to be like most people in this forum and are delighted that Dish is not subsidizing the NFL with all Dish customers having to pay more. I get all the NFL games that I care to watch. My local team plus at least 2 others on...

    Atlanta's WPCH blocked

    The dispute is with the local channel over the retransmission fees requested by WPCH which carries many Atlanta Braves and SEC Football and Basketball games. They are apparently far apart. Would like to upgrade to 2 Hoppers and 3 Joeys, but will not commit to a 2 year contract without this...

    Atlanta's WPCH blocked

    WPCH is the SEC Nework outlet for the Atlanta DMA. Since DISH no longer carries it, I can not watch the SEC basketball tournament. In April when the Mlb season begins, I will not be able to watch a large number of the Braves games. WPCH is a local station that carries a substantial amount of...

    Atlanta's WPCH blocked

    Unfornutely I live in the Atlanta DMA and WPCH was one of the local channels. I will find out shortly as the baseball season is approaching. I think that about 40% of the Atlanta Braves games are carried by WPCH. If these games disappear from DISH, it might lead many of us Brave fans to...

    3D VOD now available on 722 &722K

    I am seriously thinking about getting a 3D TV. I have been with Dish for a long time, but it appears that if I get a 3D TV to have any 3D content except expensive VOD that I will have to switch to DTV. If I get one, I would really like to see the bowl games in 3D and that does not appear to be...

    SatelliteGuys Review: Logitech Revue with GoogleTV – A Diamond in the Rough

    For my use, the media player is the main thing that needs to be fixed. It is terrible at streaming video from my computer (says in beta stage) which is ridiculous after one year. If the update does not greatly improve the media player, it is a non event for me. I use Tversity as a media...

    SatelliteGuys Review: Logitech Revue with GoogleTV – A Diamond in the Rough

    The last update improved some things, but it really messed up the Logitech Media Player functionality. I have been using Tversity to stream vieos from my computer and it worked fairly well with the limitation that the Revue does not support DTS soundtracks. With one of the updates, it elimated...

    SatelliteGuys Review: Logitech Revue with GoogleTV – A Diamond in the Rough

    If Logitech wanted to help sell the remaining revues, they would release the update now, not by the end of the year. This sounds like what we have now is what we will have. I was an original purchaser of the Revue from Dish and have gotten a lot of use from it, but with the update it could be...

    Dish channel line up vs AT&T U-Verse channel line up

    I had the 18 Mbps U-verse internet installed about 3 years ago when the service became available. This was a big improvement over the 3 Mbps DSL service that I had previously. They disconnected the DSL and connected the U-verse internet the same day and I have been very happy with it and...

    SatelliteGuys Review: Logitech Revue with GoogleTV – A Diamond in the Rough

    I was an early purchaser and have been reasonably satisfied iwith the Logitech Revue, but it is gradually becoming less "good." I enjoyed watching ESPN 3 on my big screen TV last year but cannot this year. Also can not play some videos now that used to play Ok. I hope that Honeycomb is not...

    Retailer Chat Recap - January 13, 2011

    I have the AT250 with HD Platinum. I just started on the Starz and HD Platinum free for 3 month promotions. If I end up with 6 PPV coupons, I have a much better offer from DirectTV that I will likely accept.

    SatelliteGuys Review: Logitech Revue with GoogleTV – A Diamond in the Rough

    The source of the DTS soundtracks is DVD's ripped to my hard drive, which I play on my other HDTV using PS3 MediaPlayer through the attached PS3. I would like to be able to play the same files on the HDTV that the Logitech Revue is attached to and I can as long as the file does not have a DTS...

    SatelliteGuys Review: Logitech Revue with GoogleTV – A Diamond in the Rough

    I was an early adopter of the Logitech Revue and it has performed as expected. I would purchase it again for the $179.00 price from Dish, but not for the $299.00 retail. The whole family has enjoyed doing various things with it. I think that I could access Hulu Plus using Tversity Pro, but...

    Networks Refuse Google TV

    I watch video from my PC on the Logitech Revue using the free version of Tversity, which supports Hulu. The pay version supports Hulu plus (I think) and I could probably watch the network free TV using Tversity. However, I am really not intersited as I have 2 722s and a 622 and can record any...
