    Antenna Suggestions

    I am trying this OTA thing as a cord cutter but I'm having trouble selecting the right antenna. The towers for all of my affiliates are between 15 and 29 miles away. My main problem seems to be the direction of the towers. One is north at 14 degrees, one is east at 91 degrees, one is southeast...

    Page Forwarding Ads

    Scott, I don't like page-forwarding ads, the ads where you are redirected to a whole new site and can't get back to the original site because it keeps forwarding you over and over again. That happened here on SatelliteGuys. Pictures are attached. Please do away with these. Thanks, Chad

    My failed DirecTV install

    After 8.5 years of being a Dish customer, I finally decided to switch to DirecTV. Apparently, that was a mistake and DirecTV has gone out of their way to keep me from becoming a customer. My first install date was last Friday. No one ever showed up. No one called. Nothing. I had to call them...

    Just got a call regarding local channel carraige

    I've been trying for a couple of years to get DISH to carry a missing local channel (now two missing local channels) that DIRECTV has carried since they were launched. One of them is a must-carry eligible full power station in our DMA that tried to get carriage in 2004 but was denied based on...

    Deal with NPS to "save" distants on DISH!

    The major networks have filed an emergency motion because they think that Echostar's deal with NPS to lease satellite capacity on Echostar 7 at 119 is a deal to keep distant networks on DISH. See attached court filing below. I guess it would work similar to the Sky Angel deal. You are...

    Automatic Read Receipt for PM

    With the old software, the option for Read Receipts for private messages was checked by default. Is there an option to make it checked by default with the new software? I've looked all over for the option but can't find one.

    Strange new oddity with L2.53 on the 522

    I got L2.53 early this morning and noticed that my DVR recorded an event that had no timer set-up for it. It recorded an episode of Crossing Jordan on A&E. If the guide had simply been incorrect and the DVR thought it was recorded another event, the info for the event wouldn't have been correct...

    Just got a new error message on my 522

    I pulled up a DVR event. When I tried to play it, it immediately kicked back to the event page. In the blue box where the EPG data normally would be present, it says: On the Tech Portal, there is an error code 001 that is for a switch problem but no 01 so I don't know if they are the same...

    If you are currently experiencing problems with the 110 satellites...

    Everyone seems to have lost the ability to receive programming from 110 at this time. I don't have any information but I thought I'd start a thread since I'm sure plenty of people will be along.

    Audio level: who to complain to

    I'm not sure whether this is a DISH Network problem or a station problem. The audio level on one of my local channels has suddenly become extremely loud. For most channels, I keep the volume level between 45 and 50. For this channel, I have to turn it down to 10-15 because it is extremely loud...

    SatelliteGuys spamming? (No it's not)

    I just got an email from a website peddling FTA satellite products. It was sent to the email address provided ONLY to satelliteguys. As far as I know, that email address is not available publicly on this website so it could only have come from the SatelliteGuys database. I use a technique to...
