    921 or not 921

    boy921, I never did pull the trigger on the 921, kept lurking here watching the posts to see if the issues were being cleared up. Almost a year ago I had my HT all setup for the 921. All the cables pulled etc.... See this thread in the DTV forum, this is probably not the place to post...

    921 or not 921

    Update. Made the switch to DTV. Picked up a HR10-250 (HD Tivo) locally. Got a SD Tivo from DTV. Lee

    Since 2.69, how many times does your 811 require a reboot?

    Zero, I keep the 811 off when its not in use. I only watch HD for a few hours at a time max. Watch SD on the 501. Lee

    921 or not 921

    My post, before I deleted it, was to ask how the 921 was doing and that I had a chance to buy one from a dealer. I found a new post about the 921 and the 942. Do I trust Dish to take care of the 921 owners when the 942 is released (when, enter your guess here). No, I'm sorry to say, I don't...

    811 with front projector

    GaryPen, No offense meant or taken :) Do you have experience with new generation HT (HD) projectors in general and specifically on DLP? Is cleaning the color wheels an issue, necessary? Is is a preventive maintenance thing that should be done yearly or so? I've read posts on...

    811 with front projector

    When I watch SD programming the image fills the screen vertically with just the black bars on the sides. I do not have to make any adjustments. As I posted earlier, SD from either my 811 or 501 looks great. I guess I am one of the lucky ones that don't suffer from the dark video problem...

    811 with front projector

    Toshiba TDP-MT8U (Infocus 7200) with a Da-Lite 119" screen. No issues with my 811 on DVI or component (24' cable run). Depending on the source, HD is excellent to outstanding. SD is very good from the 811 or via s-video from my old 501. I would imagine the s-video and composite sources...

    811 Outputs DVI vs YPbPr Component

    For my setup, 811 > DLP projector, I have both hooked up also. With the DVI cable I see a picture that looks like the 'sharpness' is turned up. Grainy is not the word I want to use. Looks smoother with the component. I still haven't figured out which I like better. For the SuperBowl I...

    is it possible to have the 811 remote operate

    I agree, but the strange thing is that the 501 remote will control the 811 functions. But the 811 remote does nothing on the 501 even when they are both on the same UHF freq. Anyway, I have them both on diff UHF freqs. Lee

    New Software upgrade for 811

    Also, in the setup have 'dowload without my permission' or 'upgrade without my permission'. Don't remember the exact terminology, been a while since I set mine up and I'm not at home to verify it now. Lee

    is anyone happy with dish 811?

    I'm Happy :) The PQ on SAT HD and OTA HD is wonderful. I've been using DVI or Component and both look great. I have no issues with the SD from the Dish either. The big problem is the Guide and the integration of the SAT and OTA. As we speak I'm sure Dish is working feverishly on the...

    Summary of 811 problems?

    811 locks up when video in guide is used. Does not lock up when this feature is disabled. Lee

    Live Retailer Charlie Chat Update

    Why can't they just list them: 2 ABC (SAT SD) 2-1 ABC (OTA HD) 2-2 ABC (OTA Digital SD) 6 CBS (SAT SD) 6-1 CBS (OTA HD) and so on? You don't have to map the OTA analog unless you don't get them from SAT. Or am I totally missing something? Thanks, Lee

    811 dark image software update

    MikeF, Thanks for the update. Waiting patiently also. I don't seem to have the dark image problem for some reason. I've tried all four outputs too. Maybe the Faroudja in my projector is fixing things? Who knows. I'd love to see the guide working as well as my 501. No lockups since I...

    811 dark image software update

    Here's what the guy at Dish just told me. I'm not infront of the unit so bear with the terminology. MENU 612 (system upgrade) Ensure 'without my permisson' is checked SAVE Turn unit off for 15-20 mins (I'd go for 30 based on past experience, maybe it will give a progress bar on the...
