    Dish Anywhere (PC) - All HD channels missing

    Here is a problem that I have never seen before. When I bring up the program guide on my PC (Microsoft Chromium Edge) Dish Anywhere does not display any of my HD channels, and most of the channels that I subscribe to are not displayed at all. I have tried logging out and in again a few times and...

    Dropping local channels - Leave old timers?

    I am finally to the point where I can get all of my locals OTA. If I drop the local channels from Dish, can I leave my local channel timers on my HWS? I am thinking that if I ever want to get my locals from Dish in the future, that all of my timers will still be in place. Will this work, or will...

    Has anyone with a Hopper w/Sling been able to download the new U726 software? Using 'Tools' in settings I have tried multiple times, but after going thru the motions of upgrading the software, my HWS displays the message that I already have the latest software (U725). Has U726 been deployed...

    Dish Anywhere PQ much improved on PC

    I had pretty much given up using Dish Anywhere on my PC. With the new non-flash version of Dish Anywhere, the bitrate hardly ever went over 1Mbps, and the picture quality was really bad. Today, I decided to give Dish Anywhere another try, and to my surprise, the PQ looked very good, with the...

    Positive changes for Dish Anywhere (PC version)

    Today, I noticed some positive changes for Dish Anywhere on my PC (windows 10, Edge Chromium): The red progress bar no longer remains on top of the video image.

    Program guide only 4 hours long

    I just noticed that the program guide on my HWS is very short. It is only showing the next 4 hours and nothing after that. As a result, none of my timers are scheduled to start because there is no program guide information. I have tried a front panel reset, and pulling the AC plug reset, but...

    Dish Anywhere on PC - says offline, but it is not

    Today, the Windows PC version of Dish Anywhere is reporting that my HWS receiver is offline, but it is not. I can actually watch Live TV (even though Dish Anywhere is indicating that the receiver is offline), but because it thinks the receiver is offline, Dish Anywhere will not list any of my...

    I just got U703 on my HWS

    Today, I was still on software version U249 on my HWS, so I decided to try the manual update. To my surprise, I downloaded U703 (with a date of 7/30/18). I don't think I have seen U703 mentioned yet. I wonder what has changed?

    Disappearing timers

    I had timers set up for our local news stations. Yesterday, I noticed that they did not record. When I checked, I found that both of my timers for my local news stations were missing. I didn't erase them. Where did they go? This is a first for me. Anyone else ever have multiple timers disappear...

    Today I was searching for the channels that are showing Olympic events. USA was one of the channels. Afterwards, I was using Dish Anywhere on my PC and I noticed that the USA channel is not listed in the Dish Anywhere guide. The guide goes from channel 104 to 106 and skips channel 105! However...
