    Has Anyone used Grande Communications (Local TX fiber provider)

    Moving to Texas and noticed that Grande had Gig Internet for $40 less than Spectrum. Also have a good deal on Double play 200 channels + Gig Internet for about $150. Im paying way more than that between cable internet (300MB) and Dish. They have their own branded Tivo solution and offer most of...

    I'm moving to Texas later this year and I'm looking over my choices. Not having RSNs has been a hassle, having to use a VPN to bypass blackouts on So I'm trying to figure out how much recording time I have on my Hopper with Sling, I never use it all maybe dip down to 40% free when I go...

    Dish won't even answer their phones now / pissed football fans?

    Dish is horrible with sports channels especially, I'm in NY and I haven't had SNY (Mets) for many years (I'd guess 7-8) because they said SNY wanted an unfair amount and then recently we lost YES (Yankees) for a similar reasons. If it wasn't for the fact that my roommate is the one who pays for...

    Hopper w/ Sling just formatted it self and now recordings

    Did a bit of googling and found advice to do a hard reset (unplug) for a minute or 2. everything is back. I should probably back everything up to the hard drive. But would I be able to restore to a new hopper if the current one was to fail?

    Problems with Super Joey

    I have a Hopper W/Sling, Wireless Joey, and a Super Joey. Super Joey has problems with sound dropping out, stuttering, some pixelation. Don't think it has to do with the reception because after a reboot, DVR content works. I am however getting some readings on several transponders on 61.5 of mid...

    Joey freezes video and then audio out of sync

    There is a Hopper W/Sling, a Super Joey and a wireless Joey. I did do a soft reset but not a hard one. The errors have cleared up but I suspect they will come back. I will do a hard reset and see what happens when it occurs again

    Joey freezes video and then audio out of sync

    Super Joey will freeze audio and video randomly and then start 5-10 seconds later, sometimes putting the audio out of sync. Thinking this is a bigger problem than just the Joey because I had to replace my Hopper. I was having a problem that the Hopper would pixelate quite heavily at times, then...

    How long does it take Dish to pickup a new MUST CARRY

    Oops, when I saw that Comcast had announced the addition, I thought it was going to start, but it seems as if its being delayed because a Hartford TV station has filed a petition with the FCC because their station is carried in Fairfield County, CT (New York DMA) on the same channel preposed by...

    How long does it take Dish to pickup a new MUST CARRY

    A VHF TV station (KVNV) is being moved from Ely, NV to Middletown, NJ (in the New York DMA) due to a loophole in FCC rules. It will carry ME-TV and some orginal programming (perhaps news). I believe it will be a must carry station. When will DISH begin carrying it in the New York DMA? It...

    The Weather BACK!

    You don't even get your local forecast on the weather channel on satellite, atleast on Dish they run a national forecast. You don't need the Weather Channel, even if it was all weather all the time. You have the internet, local TV, and if you live in an area that subject to unpredictable severe...

    if I want to record 2 or more shows that are on the big 4 networks in Primetime on tuner 3, do I need to enable Primetime anytime for that night or will it work without that? I don't want to have to record everything on that network on that night to record 2 shows on 1 tuner.

    Does Dish PAY for Russian News Channel RT?

    I was flipping thru and surprised how blatently anti-american the RT network was. Thats neither here nor there. I just was hoping that I wasn't paying to sponsor it. Does RT pay or does Dish pay for carriage of the Russian news network.?
