    Dish shuts down Slingbox - Will brick all devices by 2022

    Here is a link to an interesting article I just read: Dish shuts down Slingbox In the article, Dish said Slingbox has been discontinued "to make room for new innovative products so that we can continue to serve our customers in the best way possible," but it added that it wouldn't be releasing...

    FCC Retrans Fines

    Wow! The FCC is finally starting to act on this issue. If they did more of this, maybe the stations will think twice about pulling channels and charging unreasonable fees.

    On Demand "Watch Now" vs "Watch Later"

    Maybe Dish does the download only after determining that you do not have sufficient bandwidth to watch on the fly? That is just me speculating. I don't know how it really works. I do know that on my HWS it no longer downloads, it streams on the fly.

    On Demand "Watch Now" vs "Watch Later"

    I don't remember exactly when it changed, but it was not recent. It has been that way for quite a while.

    On Demand "Watch Now" vs "Watch Later"

    It is not just the VIPs. My HWS used to download and store (which worked better), but now it doesn't. Dish must have changed the software at some point.

    Watch recorded content on PC laptop?

    I would add that Microsoft's Edge browser also works with Dish Anywhere (because it is Chromium based).

    DISH just lost a 20 year customer.....

    I agree that Dish's billing system software most likely will not allow the customer service agent to add the loyal customer discount back, however, the mistake was made by Dish customer service, so Dish is responsible for the issue (and should correct it). OK, they can't add back the loyal...

    DVR Shows That Are Not There or......

    There was a problem a couple of months ago, where Dish Anywhere was showing recordings and TV stations from other people's accounts. That problem has been fixed, but maybe, because your box was owned by someone else, you are seeing their old recordings? I have been a Dish customer for a long...

    Now that you mentioned it, I think you are correct. Does anyone know for sure?

    Yes, the original remains intact. My understanding is that 'Prepare for mobile' makes a separate copy that is optimized for mobile devices.

    'Prepare for mobile' makes a separate copy of the show that is optimized for mobile devices. The file size, bitrate, and resolution are optimized for mobile devices. If you are going to transmit copies of the show to your mobile devices, it saves time to leave it on. Then it will do that in the...

    Is DishAnywhere really as bad as I read?

    As Scott wrote above, the new Dish Anywhere was really bad when it first came out, but I have to agree that it is much better now. Although the old version had some features that are missing in the new app, it is now functional and fairly reliable. Like you, I had abandoned Dish Anywhere, but...

    What direction should the antenna be pointing for the EA?

    Years ago, when I had a new roof installed, I switched my satellite dish from the roof to a pole mount. My installation went exactly as NYDutch described it in his post above. Dish did not charge me because I was a long time customer.

    Just signed up for service

    Another downside... Sometimes, when Dish offers a promotion or incentive to its customers, the offer does not apply to customers that are on a 3rd party plan (because they are already on a bundling package that is supported and administered by the 3rd party company, not Dish).

    U927 on H3

    Now that you mentioned it... The first time that I tried the update it went thru all the motions of upgrading, however the next two times that I tried to update i got the 'latest software is already installed' message. I'd forgotten about that.

    U927 on H3

    The same thing happened to me with the last update for my HWS. I tried 3 times to download it with the upgrade tool and each time it went thru the motions of upgrading, but when it was done I was on the same older release. I just gave up trying, and a few days later the update happened all by...

    DISH Everywhere = Dish Nowhere

    Just so you know... that issue has been fixed. That is not the problem. If you haven't already, try resetting your modem and router, then reset your Hopper again. That usually gets it working for me.

    Dish Anywhere (PC) - All HD channels missing

    It's back working normally again! Missing channels have returned! Thanks Dish!

    Dish Anywhere (PC) - All HD channels missing

    I tried resetting PC...did not work. Tried front panel reset/reboot on HWS...did not work. Tried resetting modem, router and PC again... still didn't work. I am pretty sure this is a Dish Anywhere problem because Dish Anywhere displays all of my recordings properly, and I can view the channels...
