    Fox Sports 1 lands deals with DirecTV, Dish and Time Warner Cable

    Been watching a little of FS1 but I'm annoyed. They have the picture shrunk a little so there are black bars on the sides just so they can fit there crawl in at the bottom. I hate this trend, I have a 16:9 TV and I want the image to fill my screen (unless I'm waiting a widescreen movie).

    ESPN 3D shutting down

    Just when I am about to buy my first 3D HDTV, kind of sucks. I was looking forward to watching some college football in 3D this fall. Oh well, life goes on and I'll still have 3D blu-rays!

    DirecTV New HD channel additions and rumors

    Every episode that aired last night of Everybody Loves Raymond and King of Queens were in HD (which is all I care about since it is all I watch on TVLand). Lots of commercials were as well!

    All New DIRECTV.COM

    When I go to the site, it doesn't look that different. A few things have been moved around, especially in "My Account" but, it looks nothing like what is in the preview link above. Never mind, I guess it has changed but, the main menu bar at the top of the page is still the old one for me...

    Installer coming tomorrow, will he provide RF modulators?

    Had our first problem this morning, 2 of the clients wouldn't display live TV or recordings. We could see the menus but they wouldn't play anything. Hit the red reset button on the HR34 and now everything is working again. Is there something I could have tried before resetting the whole...

    Installer coming tomorrow, will he provide RF modulators?

    Actually found one RF modulator and one old TV buried in a closet that had a single yellow/white (mono) video input. The installer actually had the composite cables, he didn't have any component which the 4th TV could have used but, oh well. Everything is up and running and working great so...

    Installer coming tomorrow, will he provide RF modulators?

    That's not good at all. One of those TVs is my daughters and we can't go one night without it, if we can't have her TV up and running tomorrow then the install will have to be pushed back. These 2 TVs do not have RCA inputs, just a single coax (cable/ANT) input, they're old TVs.

    Installer coming tomorrow, will he provide RF modulators?

    We are switching from Dish to D* tomorrow and having a Genie system installed. We only have 1 HDTV, the other 3 are SD and 2 of them are small 13" TVs that only have a single coax input. Will the installer have some RF modulators, even if I have to pay for them, or do I need to get these ahead...

    I think my 722 is about to die, options?

    Thanks for all the info guys, really helpful but, we've decided to switch to DirecTV. Deal was just to good to pass up, almost $20 cheaper for the first 10 months, whole home DVR installed for free and my kids will get Disney Jr. and I'll finally get ESPNU HD. It really wasn't the 722 that...

    I think my 722 is about to die, options?

    Thanks for the info. It is leased but I'm not under a contract right now. I have never payed the fee to turn on the USB for EHD use, will have to decide if we want to keep our recordings bad enough to pay that fee.

    I think my 722 is about to die, options?

    My 722 has been rebooting during the day on its own more often lately (even rebooted 3 times in an hour one day last week), locking up causing me to have to reboot it and this morning nothing but black on all HD channels (was fine after a reboot). I do not have the protection plan so, what can...

    DISH -VS- VOOM - A Settlement has been reached!

    Of course its back on now, after I just spent $43 the other day subscribing to season 3 of The Walking Dead on iTunes. Seriously, I'm pissed, I would have never paid for that if this mess hadn't happened. Someone owes me $43.

    Volume level issues on my 722, few questions?

    Well, line mode is what I want then because I want full dynamic range. I didn't spend all my money on a good sound system just to compress the dynamic range of the audio. The receiver say under "help" that RF mode is for compressing the audio so that there is not much difference between soft...

    Volume level issues on my 722, few questions?

    I'm trying to troubleshoot some volume level issues that I've just started noticing in the past few weeks, since new shows have started premiering. I'm trying to determine if it is my 722 or my A/V receiver. I'm 90% sure it is not my receiver because no other device have the problem (ie, Xbox...

    Google Fiber Goes Live in Kansas City

    Everything sounds amazing about this until you look at the channel selection; no Time Warner, Fox, Disney/ABC, AMC, BBCA channels. No ESPN = no sale for me. I don't live in KC anyway and, if this ever goes nationwide, hopefully the channel selection will be better in the future.

    Did you get a free Roku offer?

    Mine arrived, wife says it is a Roku 2 XD. It came in a plain brown box so I'm guessing it is refurbished, or maybe that is just how Roku ships them when ordered online.

    Did you get a free Roku offer?

    I'm wondering this as well. The CSR specifically told me the Roku I was being sent was valued at 59.99 but others have said they were told 79.99. I bet they are sending both out and it just depends on what the CSR determines you should receive. I'll know soon, I received an email from FedEx...

    DISH Drops AMC Networks (AMC Back on DISH channel 131)

    Dish should strike a deal with Amazon and add the Amazon streaming app to there DVRs, then you'd still be able to get AMC shows through your Dish equipment (although, not for free). I don't believe for one second that Dish dropped AMC because of streaming and some perceived "diminished value."...

    DISH Drops AMC Networks (AMC Back on DISH channel 131)

    I received 2 emails from FedEx. The first saying shipping information had been received and the second, about an hour later, saying it had been picked up. Both emails said it was shipping from Roku, not Dish and, it will be here by 3pm tomorrow.

    DISH Drops AMC Networks (AMC Back on DISH channel 131)

    Well, the credit is not showing for me online yet (would it be listed under billing?) but I'll wait a day or two because the csr told me the Roku would be shipped overnight and should be there Tuesday. So, if a Roku shows up tomorrow I will trust that the credit will show up as well.
