    Diurnal Variation of TV Signals from Day to Night

    Yes. Early in the morning is the best for distant signals. It is all atmospheric. Even by mid morning the distant stations are gone.

    PBS On Demand??

    If you have a Roku, Amazon FireStick or Apple TV then you have PBS onDemand through the PBS app. No subscription is required and the App will configure itself to your local PBS station to show even the locally produced shows.

    Best Bang for Buck

    Two things I don’t like about the fire stick: 1. You cannot key in channel numbers directly, you have to scroll up or down through the guide. 2. ( the biggest pain) Having to reauthorize it with your Dish account every month or so.

    Roku vs Firestick streamers to supplement Hopper

    The Dishanywhere app on the Firestick does work well but two big drawbacks are 1.) having to continually having to reauthorize it and 2.) not being able to easily enter channel numbers.

    OTA -4K Tv

    The ViewTV STB would work nicely with your monitor. It pulls in OTA channels as well as digital clear QAM from your cable company. A really handy feature is the ability to remap channels to a different number. Add an external drive and you can use it as a DVR.

    So Who's Having OTA Problems on Their Joeys?

    Since last August even my strongest OTA station pixelates on my Joey 4K and Joey 2.0 . However if I tune my HWS to that OTA station the pixelation on the Joeys stop. I have the older single tuner USB dongle.

    Spectrum TV Choice vs DISH Welcome Pack for new (cheap) service

    If you had a VIP211 Dish receiver with an EHD and the satellite dish installed all ready, the Welcome Pack would definitely be the way to go. She would have all the channels plus DVR service for only $22.95 a month. However Dish will not give her a 211 and Dish installation for free. There...

    Buying and Replacing Joey to Save Monthly Fee

    You can buy a Joey off the Internet and activate it yourself by calling Dish and giving them the receiver number. Yes you still get the $7 monthly fee but what you do not need is to have Dish tech come out to “install” a leased Joey. That is a $100 fee which is twice as much as the cost of a...

    OTA breakup on Joeys

    The same fix works for live. Tune the Hopper to the OTA station and the pixelation on the the Joey ( and DishAnywhere app) will clear up. Works for me.

    OTA breakup on Joeys

    There is a discussion on this in an earlier thread: OTA Breakup Problem A work around to this is to either manually tune the Hopper to the OTA station prior to the recording or to set a timer to auto-tune to a program on that station prior to a scheduled recording. For example if you want to...

    OTA Breakup Problem

    Sounds like a plan. I set a timer to auto tune the program series that comes on right before the series I want to record on the OTA channel. Should work!

    OTA Breakup Problem

    On the Joeys and DishAnywhere app the pixelation does not stop until the Hopper is tuned to the OTA station no matter how long the station is on. As long as the Hopper is on a Satellite channel it continues. Seemingly recording OTA behaves in the same way so I suspect that padding the start...
