    Anyone move from Dish Network to FIOS?

    With Triple play, I am saving over $40/mo over Dish and my previous FIOS Double play. Not sure where you get the $23/mo, but it is not even close. Again, my $40/mo savings is AFTER figuring in the $13.50/mo for each TIVO and cable card combo (fees for first HD TIVO is $120/year, and second...

    Anyone move from Dish Network to FIOS?

    I made the switch, and am happy. I purchase two tivo HD XL's for about $200 each. The XLs hold about 150 hours of HD recordings. Definitely more than I need. With triple play, I am saving about $40/mo for 24 month commitment. In 10 months the Tivo's are paid for. What I like most about...

    If you cancel E

    Had two reasons for switching to FIOS myself...financial, and rain fade. The increase in fees for my two E* DVRs was the final factor for the switch. I canceled last Saturday, and my return boxes will be delivered today by UPS. Since my original cancellation chat, I have gotten an...

    If you cancel E

    Any DVR can crap out...including Dish Networks. Even new boxes can have a hard drive that is the '1 in a 100' that flakes out early. I've owned TIVOs where the hard drive has lasted 3+ years.

    If you cancel E

    Dish CSR said at the end of the chat I had a zero balance, so that is good I guess (I canceled about 15 days into the month, so they should have credited that amount). Not worth the effort to fight for those $$. Got an email last night confirming the cancellation and they were sending the...

    If you cancel E

    I just canceled dish (via chat) on Saturday and they said they would ship me the boxes for returning the receivers. I tried to log into my old account to verify things and the account had been deleted. In the chat they made it clear they would charge me $100-$400 per receiver if they were...

    DISH IS VERY DISHONEST

    Why fight city hall? Instead work the system. Advise I got some time ago for "moving" : call dish support, get the person in India, so don't take the tech support option ! Finda a KOA campground or movie theartre in area you need to "move" too. Use that address and pick a lot/apt number...

    TIVO vs E*

    What do you call sky-diving unemployed lawyers and law school dropouts who participate on TIVO/E lawsuit threads? Skeet!

    Weather alerts on Locals are driving me nuts - Season Finale of LOST ruined

    In my area, the weather guys/babes even preempt HD for thunderstorm WATCHES. Not warnings buy "maybe there will be a storm, but maybe not" watches. I can see a 1 minute watch notice, but interupting prime time shows for hours for a weather watch?????

    Court Order issued in TiVo vs. Echostar scheduling contempt hearing

    How about this....Charlie buys Tivo, throws the existing case so EchoTivoStar wins, and then goes after Motorola, Direct, etc and makes another Billion!

    Locals Moving to 61.5

    A compass and a cheap meter to "tweak" the signal for best reception. Google something like "dish pointing meter" to find the meter. Or you can find one on ebay for less than $20.

    Bad Audio on NATGEO HD and New HMC HD

    Well, played around a little more. Those two channels will not pass audio using Dolby 5.1 function on my audio receiver, but when I switch to Virtual, I get sound (but not Dolby!). This behavior only applies to NatGeo HD and the new HMC HD channels. What is puzzling, is that NATGEO worked...

    Bad Audio on NATGEO HD and New HMC HD

    I have been having bad audio with NATGEO HD for some time now, but have let it go since it was only one channel. But now, HMC HD was lit up today and it is doing the same thing. Only these two channels exhibit the problem. I have a optical fiber audio cable hooked up from my 622 to my...
