    Dish Spam

    I am constantly getting spammed by independent satellite installation companies selling Dish subscriptions. I try to filter them out but they just use new email addresses. I know it's not coming directly from Dish, but these companies represent Dish IMO in a bad light by spamming customers. At...

    X-1 Questions

    I'll be going from Dish to Comcast when we move and I have a few questions: Is there an OTA tuner ? Can you combine 2 together so all TV's share the tuners/DVR's? How much more do they charge for the second X-1? Do they charge a fee for each of the client boxes? Can you watch live TV on an iPad...

    My daughter is going away to college and I'd like to know if there's a way for her to watch her recordings on her TV at school. I have a Sling adapter, and I know she can watch that from a computer/tablet/cell phone, but is there any way to watch directly on a TV ?

    Any Way to Watch On-Line Videos on a TV

    There's so many videos that are 0n-line only, not just from Dish but from many other sources. I have a 722, a Mac, iPads, a Roku and a Marantz AVR, and some videos will play via Plex but most will not . Is there any possible way to play them all on a TV either with hardware or software?

    Anyone Want to Sell Their Roku?

    I got my free one, but I could use 1 more for my kid's TV so they can watch Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead (which we are all hooked on). I already bought the Seasons Pass for Breaking Bad on Amazon and it works pretty well. I could keep shuttling the Roku between TV's but it's already become...

    Shipping Fee For Leased Receiver Replacement ?

    I have 4 722's, and one of them died a couple of weeks ago. The CSR said they'd send me a replacement, but there's a $15 shipping fee. Then I remembered that I had to have another of my 772's replaced in April because the HD went bad, and I wasn't charged anything. What has been everyone...

    Returning Disc to BB Store for the first time

    I have a disc that I received from Dish/BB via mail and I'm going to return it and get a new one at my local Blockbuster.

    Is There Any Way to Tranfer Recordings to iPad?

    I used to use my Archos to record my shows to watch while traveling but that no longer works with the 722 receivers. Is there any way to do this with an iPad? I also have a Dish Sling but I don't want to just stream, I want to be able to record/transfer my programs from my 722 to my iPad to...

    I'm using the Channel 3 output on TV1 to feed a distant TV in my house but the signal is a little noisy. Anyone know if the built-in modulator for channels 21 and up has an amplifier on it?

    Since being switched over to Eastern Arc, I seem to get MUCH more outages due to clouds. I live about 60 miles due north of NYC and have all 722 receivers. What could be causing this? Are the sats at a shallower angle than before ?

    Way to Teach Commands to 722 Remote in Sat Mode

    I really love that you can teach the new remotes commands. I'd like a way for the wife and kids to change the channel on the TV to our security cameras without leaving Sat mode. Is there any way to teach commands to the 4 colored buttons while in Satellite mode? Or, are there any 'punch...

    Pocketdish+722 Not Working

    I've used my Pocketdish (Archos 500) in the past with my 522 receivers without any problems. I now have all 722's and tried hooking up to that and I'm having problems. First it wasn't recognized at all by the receiver, so I downloaded the latest firmware from Archos. It shows up fine now and...
