    Dish adds Glenn Beck's The Blaze to its Top 250 Package

    I'm glad they added the channel. I watch every once in a while. For those who don't like it, don't think it should ever be on, just don't watch. Why are you views the right ones? I don't watch MSNBC or CurrentTV, but I don't care they are there. I just don't tune to them. If a channel fits...

    OFFICIAL DISH / FOX ORDEAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    :haha I find it absolutely hilarious that some want to pretend that this didn't happen. Even funnier, they want to decide for everyone what should happen to the thread - even over what the guy who owns and in-the-end runs the website. I always remember this site leaving threads open until...

    OFFICIAL DISH / FOX ORDEAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    Guess what, starting Monday, I will have to use the ole rabbit ears to watch Fox. I pretty much pooched if I want to record anything as I don't even have a vcr that works in the house. For the record, I am not Pro Dish. My rates are going to go up next year no matter what. If Fox comes to...

    OFFICIAL DISH / FOX ORDEAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    If anyone is considering leaving you may want to contact Dish to verify you are free and clear - if you are. I just chatted with them, and was initally told that I had almost two years left on my commitment since I upgraded in August. I didn't upgrade cr@p in August. My last upgrade was the...

    The NFL has no say in this. Fox is still available over the air. Plain and simple. The NFL has no way to pull out of the contract. The station is still broadcasting. The viewers still have a way to watch the games. They're called rabbit ears. :)

    Same thing with Uverse. The tv package is $112 regular monthly price per their website for their U450.

    Well, The Red Wings kick off their season tonight and I can't watch the game - even with the free Center Ice Preview as the feed that C.I. is using is the FSN Detroit one. They will get a bit more time to work it out, but if they don't, we will leave. Our family does watch sports and if...

    Help re-init 508 hd

    Turned on the box this morning and checked it. Everything that recorded last night after I tried to re-init thing are now gone. All timers are gone. It took. :) It now shows 60 hrs and 12 min of record time. It seems to be back to normal. Now, I just have to convince my son to...

    Help re-init 508 hd

    Was hoping to not have to replace the box. Don't want to have a pvr fee. I'll try support later as my son is watching stuff on it, and I am watching football. :)

    I am following the directions contained in the thread: http://www.satelliteguys.us/dish-network-technical-discussions/96954-how-re-initialize-hard-drive-dvr.html and I get all the way to the last screen that says about the hard drive being re-initalized. To clear press poser button or...

    522 install help needed

    Thanks for all the help. Seems to be running the way I want and I can do what I was able to do before - and no annoying little box in the corner. Yeah!

    522 install help needed

    I finally got it. I took everything apart and started over. It is working now. Now to figure out how to force another guide update - my local stuff isn't showing up. That and is there a way to minimize PIP and keep the other input spooling like on the 721? Watching two things at once...

    522 install help needed

    Just received my replacement 522 for the obsoleted 721. Hooked it up but the 522 is not seeing 110. In the dish info screen, it only is showing 119. The reciever is not activated yet as my wife will kill me if she can't watch her shows tonight. Any thoughts as to why by swapping the cable...

    Dish 721 error smart card not authorized...

    I think the point a lot of folks have are that the 721's themselves should be working fine. The bug was something they introduced into them. Had Dish not done so, no one would be complaining (or not as much). If they induce a problem into the unit, they should fix it or replace it at no...

    Dish 721 error smart card not authorized...

    I don't have 61.5 connected, only 110 and 119 and am still having the problems. They are now showing up when watching other channels. Befoer, it was only when watching ESPN channels. I hope they fix this soon.

    Dish 721 error smart card not authorized...

    One thing that I have figured out. Is if it happens when you are not watching with PIP active, you can rewind then go forward on the tuner that has turned blank to get the picture back, then open the PIP stopping when you have them the same size side-by-side. This has brought back the audio for...

    Dish 721 error smart card not authorized...

    Well, I've had it happen three more times today. All while watching ESPN2 and without PIP on. I hope they fix this soon, but I doubt it.
