    How long with Dish?

    November 1996, when you had to buy a year of programing in advance and install your own dish. I believe it was May 1996 when dish begin.

    Shows on EHD are erased after watching! Known problem?

    I have also lost 3 movies off my EHD over the last couple of weeks after selecting done. Seems like it will kinda freeze up a few seconds, then go to the list of recorded shows. When I checked the list, the movie is gone.

    OK who has been a E sub the longest?

    I started with a 2000 receiver in Nov. 1996 when you had to pay for a year of programming in advance plus your receiver. My parents started in August of 1996 and I done all the installs for them and myself and around 100 other people for free. Dish started in the spring of 1996.

    Eastern Arc Dish Info & Install Guide

    Do you have to have a 44 switch, or will a DP34 switch work? I have 3 dish 500's and was thinking of doing the same thing. I would need to come up with 2 more dp duals.

    Eastern Arc Dish Info & Install Guide

    My Son done a dish mover and they installed a 1000.2 and a wing dish for him. He still has a 322 receiver so the 1000.4 wouldn't work. Channel 10 and 27 looks real good off satellite in HD. None of the other locals is up yet. He moved east of Sam's Club in Springfield.

    EA Install

    I'm going to give them a call when I can figure out when I can be at home for the install. I'm very busy now with a business my son and I bought in Springfield. Sunday would be the only day I can be home now, and maybe not even this Sunday.

    EA Install

    I did think about pointing three dish 500's to the eastern arc and still useing my dp34 switch, just didn't know if it would work. I would have to get me a couple more dp duals.

    EA Install

    The reason I have two dish 500's is because I own all of my dishes,lnb's and switches,and installed everything myself. I would rather install it myself, but the dp44 switch is just cost to much money. It would cost me 300.00 if done it myself, so I have just got to let them do it for free.

    EA Install

    How good do the channels look compared to locals from an antenna? I assume you are talking about 10&27 out of Springfield. I want to up grade also, I believe I will need a 1000.4 dish and a dp44 switch since I have 4 2 tuner HD receivers.I only have 2 dish 500's up now looking at 110,119...

    If you swing your 61.5 dish to 77w I think you will loose alot of your HD channels.

    Poll, Do you have your NEW smartcards yet?

    Dish 942 for ota only?

    I have mine hooked to a dish 500 and use it everyday to record locals, you have to set timers manually because of no guide info.
