    Dish off in storm, permanently?

    Hi Again... Just came back to say they didn't follow up on the promise to contact me within 24 hours, but I did find that I could watch the debate live on YouTube. I guess they aren't going to show up until next weekend. A whole week to go. In the meantime, I'm watching things on Amazon...

    Dish off in storm, permanently?

    No Roku but I'll keep looking. I think I may have found a spot to watch at Cord Cutters.

    Dish off in storm, permanently?

    Hi I did call back and finally got them to say they would contact me within 24 hours and try to get there sooner, but that was the best I could do. So I'm still really waiting to see when they are going to come. I did find out that I've been a customer for over 16 years. The TV does work I...

    Dish off in storm, permanently?

    Hi He's right the message is from the TV set not the Dish Box. I can still get some TV through Smart TV over the internet. But not our regular programs. I've been with Dish, for many years even before Comcast was available around here. You would think they would try harder. Comcast usually...

    Dish off in storm, permanently?

    Hi We just had a thunderstorm this evening. During the storm, the dish box went dead. I can hear the disk drive running but there is no light on the front, not Green, or Yellow but power is going in. I tried pushing the buttons for start and reset. I unplugged it waited and plugged it back...

    Does the Hopper have both and eSATA and USB hook up?

    Thanks for the information I'll have to see if the drive comes with the appropriate USB cable or if I have to get one separately, the description seemed to indicate that most new DVRs don't come with a USB connection anymore. I'm not sure what Hopper I have but I'm pretty sure it is't the...

    Does the Hopper have both and eSATA and USB hook up?

    Hi I"m finally going to get a hard drive to hook up to my Hopper before it dies. I'm looking at a Western Digital My Book AV DVR Expander. I notice that they recommend hooking to DVRs using an eSATA cable which is included with the drive, rather then USB. Does the Hopper have an eSATA input...

    Buggy Hopper?

    Hi For the last couple of weeks my Hopper will suddenly go off, the TV will go black and after a while the Starting Up screen will pop up and it will go through the startup process and the TV will come back on. This happens at least once a day, at random times but usually right in the middle...

    Does anyone else find Hopper search almost unusable?

    Hi My Hopper has a lot of glitches but the search function drives me crazy. When I start searching I have to go very slowly, or it will zip to some other letter key just as I type the next one. I have to wait a few seconds to see if it's going to stay on the letter selected or zoom off...

    Dish Anywhere for PC?

    Hi I've had dish for years and now I can get it through my Smart TV, my Dish Box and my Android Tablet. I'd like to be able to get it on my PC, but I can't seem to find an app for that. Is there a way to use Dish Anywhere through my Windows 10 computer. I was surprised that I didn't find a...

    Can't connect to server?

    Hi Back to say that nothing has gotten any better, every time I try and use On Demand it say that it can't connect to the server, and that I should try again later. Both tests of Wired and Wireless show that I have a connection and none of the other devices I have running from this router...

    A few of Hopper Questions?

    The problem is that its' white type on a grey background, and not that big from where I'm sitting. LOL I'm just saying it could be easier to read. Like I said I've been making things as easy to read as possible for for 50 years! Now that I'm 77 I need all the help I can get. Mike

    A few of Hopper Questions?

    Don't want white on black but something with more contrast, how about a nice medium or darker blue with white reversed type. I've been a graphic designer for over 50 years, and I don't think I've ever put small reverse type in a grey background. Mike

    Dish on Demand Questions/Problems

    Hi I posted elsewhere that On Demand didn't connect, but it seems that it just downloads stuff so slow it seems like it. I do sometimes get the Can't Connect message but I think that just because it takes so long to do it that it throws the message. I started downloading Shrek Forever After...

    Can't connect to server?

    Hi That's weird, I also had Rizzoli and Isles recorded, about 3/4 of the way through it suddenly said it was done. It showed that it had recorded for 1 hour and 4 minutes but it wasn't there? I rerecorded it when it ran later and it worked the next day when I ran it. My Hopper seems to have...

    Can't connect to server?

    Hi It's a Hopper with Sling. I did get to watch the last part of Tin Man, by doing it using Dish Anywhere through my computer, which is hooked to my TV via HDMI. I did get it to download one movie through the dish box this afternoon, the message "Can't connect to the server, try again later."...

    Can't connect to server?

    Hi Did the Reboot, I didn't have to reset the network connection this time it came up working fine. Then I reset the router, this required resetting the connection on the Hopper again. While testing I did get it to download one On Demand movie, the the next one is sitting on Processing Your...
