    Fox local channel no longer on Dish

    I am in the Tyler, Tx. market and the local Fox channel has not been available for quite some time. I would have thought Fox and Dish would have come to an agreement by now. This is the only way I have to watch the super bowl. I live a long way from the station and would need a deep fringe...

    Is Cnn (or Dish) forcing us to watch a commercial screen?

    For the past two or three days, every time CNN breaks for a commercial called "The Movies", a new series CNN is broadcasting on Sundays, the picture freezes on the commercial logo screen. It just stays there and you have to hit the recall button which then asks you if you want to go to live tv...

    Ethernet and Joey

    I have a Hopper and one Joey in my home. The Hopper is connected via WiFi because it is a long way from my router. Is there any advantage to connecting an ethernet cable to the Joey which is close to the router? I did a search and found this but it makes no sense to me: Joey to hopper...

    Got conflicting info on how to use EHD

    A while back I asked the question here about using my ehd with my Joey. The opinion here of several people was that an ehd could be used with joey. I have a hopper and joey and the dish rep I chatted with said ehd will work only with hopper. I decided to try it today to see which was correct...

    Are all outputs of Joey active at once?

    I have my Joey hdmi out going to my A/V receiver then on to my projector. No problem with this hook up in sight and sound. I also have the component video outputs going to a display in another room (the cables go through the wall to this room), however, I get no sound or picture from component...

    Can you use EHD with a Joey?

    I recently had a joey and a hopper installed. They replaced a 721 vip and 612 to which I often hooked up my external hard drives of archived shows I had recorded. Do I have to use the EHDs only with the hopper or can I hook them to the Joey?

    Needs tips for new installation today

    My trusty 722K died this morning. Will not turn on. I also have a 622 in the bedroom. Contacted dish chat and they said they will replace the 722 but it would take several days to ship and that was the only way I could get a replacement. Problem with that is I have set up a huge Belmont...

    External Hard Drive Question

    I'm still working with a several year old 722 vip receiver which still operates very well. Once in a while I plug in an external hard drive to archive saved recorded videos I've meade on the 722. Sometimes the receiver acknowledges the hard drive and sometimes it does not. I've decided to...

    HDNET not part of America Everything Pack?

    I was looking at the perks section of the DIsh website and it showed free previews for HDNET coming later in the month. I also read below it that the HDNET channel along with Sony and others are always available as part of the America Everything Pack, which is what I have. I tried to go to...

    Why are my SD channels hit or miss?

    I have a vip722 receiver and all my HD channels come in fine. However, most of my SD channels have a signal code 11-12-11 with error code 002 (partial signal loss). Sometimes they come in by accident it seems but most of the time I get this error code, or the one that shows complete signal...

    Help with 722K Signal Loss

    For a long time now I have had periodic blue screens (partial signal loss) pop up on my 722K screen. The error code is shown as 002, which denotes something not working on the multi dish switch or malfunctioning equipment between the switch and receiver. I have checked all the connections and...

    Help with locals in HD in Texas

    I have an HD Dish dp plus with triple transponder (western arc). I called Dish to ask when the Tyler, Tx. area would finally get locals in HD. I was told they are available now. They asked why I was not getting them and I asked them the same question. I went through every check they told me...

    Does Dish send out techs to check equipment without customers asking?

    Yesterday I received a call from Dish (at least I think it was Dish). They asked if I have had signal problems lately. I told them every once in a while I get a signal loss message and also the receiver reboots on its own but not often enough for me to worry about it - maybe once every week or...

    Why are channel numbers different on 612 vs 722k?

    A few weeks ago I notice neither of my two WD EHDs were being recognized on my bedroom's 612 receiver. They always worked before and still work very well on my living room's 722k receiver. I worked with Dish tech reps on-line to no avail so they sent me a new 612. I set it up and let it do...

    I can't watch MaxGo! Why?

    Okay, I just signed up for the new MaxGo but can't watch it. I can get the movies but they are constantly buffering, loading and everything is jerky. And of course this is in SD - HD being out of the question. I have an old computer and the plug-in required to watch runs my cpu to 100% so...

    How does "PIP" work on a 622?

    I have a 622vip and can't get the picture in picture to work. Here is what I do and maybe someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. I turn the receiver on and put it to channel X. Then I turn it to channel Y. When I hit the "return" button on my remote, I can go back and forth between X...

    OTA signal loss on one channel only?

    My bedroom 612 receiver has lost signal on one of my local OTA channels (CBS). The other local channels come in fine. The strongest signal is about 88 on the bar and is with NBC, with other channels also in the lower 80 range. But CBS (both of their digital and HD channels) show the big...

    Just got an LCD in the bedroom - what receiver?

    I have had a vip622 for several years in my den and my tv2 signal went to the bedroom. I did not care if it was HD or not. Yesterday I decided to get a 37" LCD set to replace the old one. I love HD on it (OTA) but hate the SD I get with my 622's tv2. I want to call Dish and see if they will...

    Question about taking Dish on the road.

    I have had a 622 for over a couple years now that runs my projector in HD in the den and tv2 in the bedroom. I finally think I have to have HD in my bedroom too as I am wasting a very nice Toshiba HDTV in there. At the same time, I plan on using this new HD receiver (I'll probably get the 612)...

    Quick question about Febs digital conversion

    I have a 622 and an HD projector hooked up via HDMI. I know I do not need a converter box but I have a question about the conversion next month. Right now I watch mostly HD programming but there a few channels such as Ovation and TCM which are not HD. The picture is terrible, as you can...
