    Replacement VIP211K won't show previous DVR shows

    My daughter had to replace her silver VIP211. Dish sent a VIP211K. The old VIP211 had the DVR function activated and the new VIP211K does have DVR functionality. The problem is that all of the shows previously recorded by the old VIP211 show up, but can't be played. If she tries, the screen...

    Application Software version number

    It has been a week since my HWS/Joey was installed and the Apps are still not working. When I look at the 'System Info' screen there is no number after "Application Software". Is that why none of the Apps are functional? I have done both soft and hard resets, but the Apps are still MIA. Is...

    DTV HD Satellites

    My neighbor, who has his main residence in NJ, has a DTV SD package with NYC locals. A year ago I installed a 3 lnb dish for him at up here at his camp in NH. He carries his receiver back and forth. As far as I can tell he is only using the satellite at 101, I could have used a single lnb dish...

    HughesNet Parts ID

    The manger of our local "Recovery Park" (AKA 'The Dump') has been keeping an eye out for me in collecting old Satellite Dishes. While most of the things taken from the dump are legacy D* and E* dishes, I have had a few jems. Last spring someone brought in an old 121 SuperDish. I converted that...

    72W, 83W & 91W with SuperDish

    Last fall I picked up a discarded Superdish (121,119 & 110) at the dump. It works well enough for FTA, but does not give me as much signal strength as my Primestar dish. The good news is that I found it was relatively easy to add multiple LNBs to the arm. Through EBay I picked up 2 more...

    Picking up RTV with SuperDish 121

    I am having trouble picking up RTV on AMC-9 @ 83 using an old SuperDish 121. From what I can tell, I am on AMC-9 because I can pick up a few wild feeds like colorbars from NBC in Charlotte, NC, a basketball game from the Sunbelt network and another basketball game from ESPN3. I also can pick...

    SD receiver and 110w

    I'm helping a buddy set up a 3-LNB dish at his seasonal camp. He has an older SD Directv receiver (circa 2007). We get about 93% signal strength on 101W and about 83% on 119W. But 110W has 0% signal. Is that correct for a non-HD receiver? LyngSat shows one transponder still active on 110W...

    My son has his EA 1000.4 dish mounted on a Pressure Treated post on the side of his front lawn. Three times now it has moved out of position to the extent that he has lost all signals. The elevation is not changing, it is only the azimuth. Each time I have been able to repoint the dish by...
