    Finally We Can Get HD Only Again

    I am sure this was discussed, but Dish made 3 HD only packages available, Essential for $10, Ultimate for $20, and DishHD for $29.99. I switched to DishHD, total $35/mo with DVR. My rationale is 110" 2 million pixel HD projection. SD just looks like xxxx on it, even with the Reon VX scaler...

    VOIP DVR Dialout Solution Works

    Hi: The old 811 allowed me to dial *99 as a prefix priming the 1800 dialout number for data transmission to Dish. The farthest i got with the 942 is to have it start a smart card query, then fail while using an inverted DSL filter. Now the Sipura 1000 Unlocked ATA for 39 off ebay...

    942 Voip Help Me Please

    I had the 811 for a while and worked great with my VOIP using the *99 prefix. Now i "upgraded" to the 942 and I CANNOT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD make it dial a * into the prefix in phone settings. I called CSR who said all DVRs cannot be used with VOIP, and out of desperation even tried to...

    Dish to profit from 1280x1080i, newb's opinion

    Hi guys, I have my little theory on the downrezzing scam perpetrated by Dish (BTW a class action lawsuit may be in the works here). I look no further than to the MPEG4 programming starting in Spring. How will they make us bite the bullet and shell out hundreds for the new receivers? Very...
