    Hopper 3 - 10 Sec. Skip Back

    Yes. Exactly the same thing.

    110/119 Listings Post 129 Transition (Updated 4/13/2024)

    I took some time to check about this, but I don't know if I have discovered anything that will be of any value. I have a Hopper 3 (I don't know if it matters, but on the front it also states "with Sling") that has feeds from 110, 119, and 72. In order to try and be as accurate as possible, I...

    110/119 Listings Post 129 Transition (Updated 4/13/2024)

    I'm happy to check on that for you, but right now I've got some other pressing things I need to attend to. I'll see what I can do as soon as I can.

    110/119 Listings Post 129 Transition (Updated 4/13/2024)

    My account service address is listed as New York City, but I'm not physically there, so I can't see the spotbeams. Here is some information for your list that I can see: Channel Type Network Satellite, Transponder 2 SD WCBS (CBS) 110, TP 01 4 SD WNBC (NBC) 110, TP 01 5 SD...

    New York Locals

    Just set up your account with an address in New York City. If you aren't able to pick up the spotbeam, you will have the New York City locals in SD.

    Accurately checking satellite and transponder on receiver (H3)

    Oh! I don't know if I've ever pushed that button when just watching TV (I use it when I want to transfer a program from the DVR to the external hard drive, though). I just did it, and it showed that only 1 tuner out of 16 was in use (the channel that was on at that time). No programs were...

    Accurately checking satellite and transponder on receiver (H3)

    I hate to admit this, but I don't know how to do that. I checked the menu to see if I could find anything labeled "TV Activity", but I didn't have any luck. I'd be happy to do it if you'll tell me how.

    Accurately checking satellite and transponder on receiver (H3)

    Thanks for this. However, the other day when I was checking, the Hopper 3 was the only thing on (both Joeys were off), there were no programs recording, and it was in the middle of the afternoon, so no prime time (not to mention the fact that I can't see any spotbeams anyway). So even though I...

    MPEG2 Western Arc shutoff

    Let me start off by stating that I realize that many of you know way more about all of this stuff than I do (although no one knows as much as what's going on as the folks at Dish - all of us are only speculating). However, what about this: I'm only counting 19 transponders on Echostar 11...

    Accurately checking satellite and transponder on receiver (H3)

    In my experience, yes, the channel loads properly, the Info>Recall method shows the correct satellite, but the Home x3>Dish method may or may not give the correct information.

    Accurately checking satellite and transponder on receiver (H3)

    Exactly! This type of stuff is the same thing that I have experienced. Totally unreliable, inconsistent, and therefore, nearly useless.

    SEC Network SD disappeared

    Ha! To be honest, as I mentioned before, I really don't watch the ACC network this time of year. However, even if you had posted news about a channel taken down that I do watch regularly, I certainly wouldn't be mad at you for being the messenger. In fact, it would be quite the opposite - I...

    SEC Network SD disappeared

    That's fantastic. Thanks for the great news. I'm looking forward to watching my NC State ball games in HD.

    SEC Network SD disappeared

    I don't know when I lost it, although I suspect it was when zippyfrog posted all of those changes. I only use the ACC network to watch NC State football and men's basketball, so I haven't had a need to watch it lately. I am only able to pick up CONUS beams (no spots).

    SEC Network SD disappeared

    Thanks ethanlerma . That's true. That time got a little ugly, and I would prefer to not have that happen again, either. I'd like to just mind my own business and enjoy my perfectly legit and paid for Dish service (albeit, not actually on US soil).

    MPEG2 Western Arc shutoff

    This is a fantastic place to learn about all things Dish, that's for sure! I would be lost without this site.

    SEC Network SD disappeared

    Silly me! I didn't even think to go check and see if I had the SEC network. I also have a Hopper 3, and also have SEC HD on 404-01. There are also SEC Alternate HD options on 404-02 and 404-03. Determining the specific transponder is questionable for me, though. Whenever I go into the...

    SEC Network SD disappeared

    This quote is from this thread. It looks like your SEC Network has been taken down and isn't being broadcast on the Western Arc at all at the moment. I don't know for sure, but I would suspect that once Dish is done with their rearranging (which is supposed to be by the end of July), you will...

    MPEG2 Western Arc shutoff

    Wow! They're staying busy moving stuff around and making other changes. I don't even know what all of what you have listed means, but thanks for sharing. I'm really curious to see what things are going to look like for me come the end of July. I'm very hopeful that for the first time ever I...

    MPEG2 Western Arc shutoff

    I don't mind checking at all. Right now, 110 transponder 2 is showing a strength of 43.

    MPEG2 Western Arc shutoff

    Well, I have no idea how to determine specifically which satellite I'm tuned in to. From what I understand, Dish is using Echostar 10, 11, and 23 at the 110 location (although I don't know whether they are actually broadcasting from 23 yet or not). Honestly, I don't ever pay any attention to...

    MPEG2 Western Arc shutoff

    Thanks! That method shows that all four channels are on 110, transponder 1.

    MPEG2 Western Arc shutoff

    Thanks! All four of those channels are now on 110. That method doesn't give me the transponder, though.

    MPEG2 Western Arc shutoff

    With my subscription, I get New York locals in SD from a CONUS feed. They have been on 119, transponder 20 (according to LyngSat). I'm extremely hopeful that when Dish is done with all of their changes to the WA that I will end up with these channels in HD. I got to thinking last night that...

    Echostar 14 satellite info

    Maybe once Dish finishes moving channels around, you will get some of them back. They appear to be getting ready to start using Echostar 23 in the 110 slot, and the map appears that you may be within the footprint. It has been said that they will have these moves done by July, so if you stick...
