    NFL Thursday Night Football in 4k looks bland

    I'm watching the Steelers at Browns game and switching between NFL Network and the 4k channel (ch. 540) and the 4k feed looks bland in comparison. When I get up close, I guess the 4k channel looks a little bit more crisp on the edges, but the color is definitely muted compared to the standard...

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    I'm watching the Steelers – Browns game and switching between my local FOX channel and the 4k channel (ch. 540). I have to say, the 4k picture looks kind of bland compared to the standard HD picture. Any idea why that would be?

    Wireless Joey speeds slow, anyone else?

    My Wireless Joey seems to be somewhat slow when accessing the guide, scrolling through the channels in the guide and accessing my recordings on the DVR. Has anyone else experienced this? Also, anyone know if there are any plans on upgrading the Wireless Joey, like they did with the standard Joey?

    DISH DVR 510 and 301 receiver...worth anything??

    I'm not a dealer, so I'll probably just recycle both. Why should I keep the card?

    DISH DVR 510 and 301 receiver...worth anything??

    I'm currently cleaning out my basement and I have two old dish boxes, as mentioned in the topic title. Are these worth anything, maybe to sell on eBay or craigslist, or should they just go to the curb on trash day?

    Guide Options – Favorite Channels list will not scroll

    Thanks for the replies, everyone! So, I removed my Big10, SEC and Root Sports "expandable" channels, and exited out. Problem still persisted. Only after I removed all the SiriusXM channels did the guide operate correctly. I then added back my sports channels just mentioned, but left the SXM...

    Guide Options – Favorite Channels list will not scroll

    I have had this problem before, but it has occurred again. I have a Favorite Channel list that I created that contains just the channels that I watch. Everything will work fine until, out of nowhere, I will hit the Guide button, which displays my favorite channel list (Main), and I will not be...

    HOPPER 3 UPGRADE WAITING LIST!

    I was in the midst of getting a Hopper 3 upgrade setup several months ago, but I have since lost contact with the DIRT member that was assisting me. Could someone else please assist me in following through on my Hopper 3 system upgrade?

    Full time RSN's on Dish?

    I just looked forward a few days and my RSN-HD goes "off air" from 3 AM - 11 AM every day. From a technical standpoint, I'm curious as to why the channel is not 24-hour HD, but in real-world usability, I'm COMPLETELY satisfied! It was always a bit annoying when the pregame or post game of my...

    Full time RSN's on Dish?

    FYI, my guide does show "Off Air" for the HD channel, while the SD channel shows programming.

    Full time RSN's on Dish?

    Hmmm...so, at 3 AM on the nose, my Root Sports HD channel went off the air (412-18). It shows the following warning/error screen: Anyone know if this was supposed to happen? Still working out the bugs, maybe? Will this be a normal thing (no HD RSNs overnight) or will the channel go 24/7 HD in...

    Full time RSN's on Dish?

    Holy schnikes!! So, this is not a drill, this is not a test?!? I can finally delete the SD version of Root Sports from my guide list favorites?!

    Hopper 3 users...how is the new 52.0 remote vs. the old 40.0?

    I think I'll be on the same page as those that prefer the old 40.0 remote over the new one. I use PIP often enough and I use the green CC button a lot, so I don't think I'll like having to go back to multiple button pushes and diving through menus on the new remote when the old one is one push...

    Hopper 3 users...how is the new 52.0 remote vs. the old 40.0?

    Did he initially say he needed to take the 40.0 remote(s), or was it a non-issue?

    Hopper 3 users...how is the new 52.0 remote vs. the old 40.0?

    Another question for you H3 early-adopters...I've read in a few other postings that when the installers were unhooking the old DVR (Hopper, Hopper w/ Sling, etc.) and Joeys, they were taking (or at least trying to take) the old 40.0 remotes with them. What the heck are these installers going to...

    Hopper 3 users...how is the new 52.0 remote vs. the old 40.0?

    Awesome that you're enjoying the 52.0! How does the rewind/fast-forward buttons work? I know you press them to jump back/forward and you hold them to rewind/fast-forward, but how long does it take to engage? A second, half-second? Do you just keep holding it down to go faster (15x, 60x, 300x)...

    Hopper 3 users...how is the new 52.0 remote vs. the old 40.0?

    For those that have had the new Hopper 3 system installed, how does the new remote (52.0) compare to the old Hopper/Hopper with Sling remote (40.0)? At first glance, it seems that it is less functional since it has fewer buttons, especially the four colored buttons, but without a Hopper 3...

    DISH Long Term Customers

    Wow...are you sure that you didn't have to sign a new 2-year contract? I ask because from everything I have read on these forums, it seems like the only way to get the new hopper system is to commit to a new 2-year contract. Did you negotiate with a DIRT member? Online chat? Over the phone?

    Scott's Mini Hopper 3 Review

    Are the power supplies for the 4K Joey and Joey 2 the same as the ones used for the original Joeys, with that proprietary end connector on it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
