    Hopper 3 composite output video letterbox, but guide is anamorphic

    I now have a Hopper 3, but this problem appears to be with the Carbon UI software. I first saw it when I installed the test version of Carbon UI on my old Hopper with sling, and now it persists with the Hopper3. Since my first Hopper 1, I have been sending the composite output of the Hopper to...

    Replace white plastic lnbf covers?

    Is there any place to find replacement white lnbf covers? My Hopper had been experiencing significant rain fade lately where we would completely lose signal from our Balitmore locals on 61.5. We are on EA with a 1000.4 dish. This partial signal loss problem would persist much longer than the...

    Restore Hopper 2000 settings to HWS

    Will I be able to restore my Hopper 2000 settings stored in my existing remote control to my new HWS arriving on Saturday? It would be great to not have to re-setup all of the timers. Are they compatible? Thanks, - Paul

    Hopper Guide Display Bug

    This has persisted through several software releases including S238 which our hopper received last night. It's kinda minor, but I wanted to post it in case no one else has noticed it. This only seems to occur in a favorite guide with exactly 7 entries (1 full screen). All of our other...

    Hopper Timer Cancelled by Wife's Windows7 Laptop??

    Really odd event happened tonight. We were watching a recorded show on the Hopper while my wife was also browsing he internet with her Windows7 WiFi connected laptop. At 11PM, her laptop lost WiFi connectivity. I checked our other laptop's WiFi connection and it was working fine. About 2...

    How long should a 2TB WD Elements external drive take to format on a 922?

    I plugged the 2TB drive into the 922 at 7:30AM this morning. A notice popped up on the 922 that the drive needed to be formatted. It's now just after 11AM (3.5 hours) and the message "USB storage device is formatting, please wait..." is still on the screen. Could it still be formatting? I'm...

    Dishnetwork.com down?

    I've been trying since 8:45pm to connect to the dishnetwork site to use my free PPV coupon to watch the Harry Potter movie, and the site won't load. It's after 9PM and the movie has already started. Guess I'll try again tomorrow.

    Is the 922 mostly stable now?

    Existing 922 owners: I'm thinking about DIU my 4 year old 622 for a 922. Especially if I find out I'm eligible for the (nearly) free upgrade. However, after reading the posts, I'm concerned. Our 622 has been very reliable and stable receiver, and I'd never hear the end of it from my family...

    How did my DVR time record the whole Super Bowl game?

    I'm not complaining, but am not sure how this happened. I set my 622 to record the Superbowl game by selecting the game in the guide. I didn't pad the timer on either side. The original game in the guide was from 6pm until 9PM (EST). However, my DVR kept on recording past 9PM and didn't...

    Move an in-progress 622 recording from TV1 to TV2

    Thought I'd share a handy 622 procedure I stumbled upon the other night. My 622 is running in dual mode. TV2 in the bedroom isn't in use because is just finished recording a show. TV1 in the living room is recording a show because the start time overlapped with the ending show on TV2...

    Right Brain / Left Brain

    Kinda cool animation that is supposed to indicate whether you are more right brain or left brain depending on which way the dancer appears to be spinning..... I see her spinning clockwise immediately, but upon concentrating can make her appear to spin the other way too.. The Right Brain...

    Grandfathered National PBS Channel - Gone

    Help! I have a very upset wife and two kids! My two young children always watch the PBS kids programming the National PBS channel offers that our local PBS station does not. Until 2 weekends ago, I still subscribed to, and could view the National PBS channel (Dish network channel 249). We...

    Lost my Baltimore enhanced locals

    I have had the Dish Baltimore Enhanced Locals 1 package since last fall. This allowed me to receive both Baltimore and Washington DC locals based on the FCC's significantly viewed chart. http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-05-187A2.pdf I noticed yesterday that the...

    Question for Dish Installers: 2nd Repair trip - Tip or no tip?

    2nd Repair trip - Tip or no tip? I've been a Dish customer since '98. I've been having a problem since November that only occurs when the outside temperature is below freezing. Dish phone troubleshooting multiple times didn't help, and they finally determined that the problem was most likely...

    Is anyone receiving Baltimore Locals Yet?

    My SuperDish install scheduled for December 6th was rescheduled to February because of the Snow we had on the 6th. Is there anyone out there that actually has a SuperDish installed in the Baltimore DMA? If so, what is the PQ for the locals on 105? Since the earliest that E* could...

    Superdish Install Snowed Out

    I was supposed to have my Superdish installed on Saturday, December 6th. The SD is required to receive my Baltimore locals. When I woke up that morning and saw the snow was still falling on the 10 inches of snow already on the ground, I suspected they would cancel. (didn't seen quite safe...

    Picture Quality - Locals on 105

    Has anyone with a Superdish viewed the new locals on 105. I've heard mixed reviews about the quality of the images of locals E* carries on 119/110. Most seem to say that Dish compresses locals much more than their standard channels. I'm wondering if the PQ on the 105 locals is...

    New Locals...

    I thought the last Charlie Chat said that there were going to be quite a few new locals available on October 16th. I realize that the one's I'm looking for (Baltimore Locals) are on 105, and can't been received without the SuperDish, but I thought they would at least announce the locals...
