    HDMI Cable Quality

    Most of my HDMI cables came from the local Fred's store. They haven't given me any problems.

    Western Arc problems this afternoon?

    He left a short while ago, after replacing the LNB, repointing us to Eastern Arc, and replacing the run of buried cable. Turned out the buried cable still had a few splices from the original install years ago by a part-time contractor...we were both surprised they had lasted as long as they...

    Western Arc problems this afternoon?

    Thanks, ChadT41. The tech should be here within the next few hours. OTA/FTA and the Roku are all working ok, so we haven't been hurting :)

    Western Arc problems this afternoon?

    Rebooting and unplugging everything didn't help me unfortunately.

    Western Arc problems this afternoon?

    Thanks, KAB. Worst case is probably that the LNB kicked the bucket (the dish itself looks fine and hasn't moved). I'll give it a little while longer then call support.

    Poor quality picture with new hopper set up

    How is your Hopper connected to your TV? That is, what input is it attached to? If it's connected to either the antenna input or a composite video input (yellow RCA jack), then you will only see an SD-quality signal at best.

    Weak or no signal message - snowy screen

    How is the DVR connected to the TV--to the antenna connector? The would explain the snowy picture and weak/no signal message from the TV while the DVR is trying to restart. My first impression is that the hard drive in the DVR is going bad. We had a similar problem with a 522 DVR receiver...

    HD Locals

    Used to be in Mexico, I guess :) The only channels listed on 77W TP16 are LR and Pine Bluff stations, per TheList. KVTN (25) and KMYA (49) are SD-only. Do you receive ANY of the LR stations on satellite? What Dish package do you subscribe to?

    HD Locals

    Little Rock stations are carried in HD only on the 77w sat. 129w has those stations in SD only. Are you certain you're pointed to the 77 sat? Do you receive any of the national channels in HD? What about OTA?

    Are these boots OK for installers?

    I can't speak to that particular boot but as a Dish customer (other than installing my own dishes for FTA), I would recommend something that's comfortable--for your feet's sake :) --but is also easy to clean and/or take off before entering a customer's premises. I personally would look for...

    Question that appears that Dish customer service could not answer...

    Looks like dare2be beat me to the punch! :)

    Question that appears that Dish customer service could not answer...

    As you're in NH, a Dish installer would most likely aim the dish towards the "Eastern Arc" satellites (61.5W, 72.7W and 77W as mentioned above), although if the signal is blocked they might use the 110W, 119W and 129W "Western Arc" satellites.

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    I just happened to receive the downgrade overnight last night, and missed RandallA's post about it. I didn't...just did the calculation manually. 50-51C on the display. Sorry for any confusion.

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    We've had the 622HZ for about a month now and have had many of the same issues as I've seen posted on the board. An additional one I don't recall seeing posted is the loss of audio output after tuning an OTA station (we can receive 15 OTA channels from my house). This usually happens when I...

    522 Software L4.11 Issues?

    SirDomino, you can hit the Menu button on your remote twice and it will take you directly to the system info screen. Alternatively, you can go through the System Setup (Menu-6) menus to get the same info. I may be off the mark, but it sounds like your 522 may have other issues, such as a...
