    *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.

    Are you having Sling / DISH Remote Access Issues

    I reset the broadband connections on the 6192 screen and they all work now. Strange....

    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.

    New problem with TV2 Aspect Ratio

    I have the same issue. I feed a small 34" 16:9 TV via the composite output in single mode. I have a main 16:9 set fed via the component output on TV1. I had the TV2 set to stretch the composite output so it returned the image to the correct aspect ratio on-screen. I too have the top and...

    Crank up Dish for RV

    Thanks for the link. The problem with the ground mounts is the soil is so dense you cannot usually get a stake in the ground where I usually camp. I have one of the ground mount kits that I got at CW, but it's not easy to setup. I wish I had a picture, but my latest mount is a old mast...

    Crank up Dish for RV

    I've been doing the same thing, but setup with the meter is not always easy. It may be my cheap meter too. With my old crank up, I set the index ring to north with a compass and then rotated the dish to the position of choice. Then it was so many cranks to set the elevation (from the...

    Crank up Dish for RV

    Is it safe to assume I could get away with a single LNB dish for RV use. I looked at the Winegard Dish 1000, but they want $1400 for it (still trying to figure out why). Whereas a single LNB crank up is running in the $170-$275 range. I had a crank up in my old trailer and it was easy to...
