    Can Dish and Cable Co-exist on Coax?

    If I remember I had successfully used this with the Dish Hopper and cable internet. It worked very well.. As for Joey. there was a separate run from the dish Joey using an alternate switch.

    Can you mirror Hopper 3 on 2nd TV?

    You can also use an hdmi splitter and then use a baln hdmi to coax converter. This comes with a pair. hdmi to ethernet is cheaper if you have ethernet runs around your home. The drop of your target location can convert back from coax or ethernet to hdmi. I've used this with the joey in one...

    Can Dish and Cable Co-exist on Coax?

    I'm surprised at the answers given. Offcourse you can do this. Its called a pair of Diplexers. Search for the "Holland Diplexer Splitter DPD2 Satellite FTA Dish TV" on ebay and get two. I have successfully run Cable TV/Cable Internet and Dish on one Coax around the home. Infact you can go higher...

    Possible to use 1000.2 dish for 1000.4?

    Bobby. you do remember well on the CONUS locals. :) I had also changed my configuration to a partial western ARC solution with 110,119,118.5 and 72.7 as the wing dish. I had used the DPP lnb on I believe a single old Dish 500. I changed the DMA to San Diego and since San Diego is on spot, it...

    Possible to use 1000.2 dish for 1000.4?

    Northern Michigan should work well with dish 1000.2 with the dual lnb which gets 61.5 and 72. 77 is not needed. I was in los angeles and had the dish 1000.4 with three lnb's for 61.5, 72 and 77 because the 1000.4 got the signal levels to the mid 40's vs the low 20's of 1000.2. Pointing is...

    Throttling on Internet

    Thats right. I'm positive it has something to do with Sling. I have tried iptv subscriptions and they are stable. Never drop in quality. However when I start sling, it works well but after a few hours, the quality deteriorates.

    Throttling on Internet

    The BBC NVidia Application. I downloaded it and got it loaded through usb. I have the locator service and that makes the region preferences work.

    Throttling on Internet

    Is there a debug menu or a button combination on the keyboard or the remote that can re-establish the connection back with sling. For example if I'm watching a content and the speed drops and I change the channel, the speed bounces back up. The problem is that I have to search for the content...

    Throttling on Internet

    Another find. By using Sling International for International channels keeps the speed consistent. The fact that nvidia has two apps for sling is a bonus in my opinion. the bbc app works well too.

    Throttling on Internet

    yes with firetv, i do have the zoom cut out. I can check on nvidia shield. So here are my test observations. 1. NVidia Shield breaks down after about an hour to even 0.3 mbps if constantly streaming. 2. Same occurrence with Firetv 3. Added VPN on ddwrt and that too after an hour or so...

    Throttling on Internet

    Yes its the nvidia shield. The firetv is very slow when compared to the shield. When I watch an mkv stream, it plays just fine. If I quit the sling app and restart it, I regain the full speed. I suspect it has something to do with the service. confused.

    Throttling on Internet

    Hi all. I wanted to share some of my experience when viewing sling on my nvidia and firetv. On both devices I get great speed like about 3.7 mbps constant and in about an hour the speed suddenly drops to 0.3 mbps. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Is it the ISP that is throttling. Its...

    SAT. 118

    I guess Dish does not care much for the Internationals as It would replicate 118 onto 77. For the sake of discussion, all internationals were earlier located on 61.5 before the 118 FSS came into being. I believe in the earlier days it was 61.5 and for the west, we could point to 148 which is not...

    SAT. 118

    I have used the eastern arc in mix with the 118 only. The setup was 72, 61.5, 77 and I added the 118 in the single input. The International LNB had to be changed out to the version without the built in switch. I didn't have an issue with the guide populating and it worked totally fine. I don't...

    SAT. 118

    Dishworld is not a viable solution as its sling/internet based and does not have a dvr option. From my knowledge the International package are now considered as a basic package and you don't need to subscribe to any thing more. You do need the dish 500+ to get the 118 with the guide as the guide...

    Not happy, being forced to leave Dish.

    I know how dish handles such situations. No wonder they are rated as one of the worst companies in customer service. The only hope you would have is one of the DIRTS here. They are the only ones who really help in situations like this. I live in Los Angeles and installed the eastern arc myself...

    Old Dish LNBF. Still compatible?

    With that you will pick up 110/119 and will get all the available HD's as well on 110. You can add a cheap wing dish from Craig list for sat 129 and add it to the mix. The newer ones of the 110/119 had an input for the wing so you could get a cheap dish wing and complete the setup. Alternatively...

    1000.2 or 1000.4

    Let me pitch in with my personal usage of Eastern arc from 1000.2 to 1000.4. Note: I'm located in Los Angeles and Eastern Arc is not designed for installation on the west coast. I had the dish 1000.2 installed and I would pull signals of about 11 to 15 in yellow on satellite 72 but 61.5 came in...

    Trying a setup with 110/119 and 129 with wing dish

    Hi all. I am trying a friend to get setup with dish and there is a huge tree in front of his patio and thanks to the dish pointer app, I could manage to get him 110/119 through an old dish 500 dish. I've also made him purchase the portable wineguard dish and will try to pull 129 from between the...
