    The 866-974-0752 number is now disconnected, however the 866-974-0769 number got me to a friendly guy in NJ. I have been with Dish over 18 years he said and qualified for $15.00 a month off of my AT200 package, plus I asked for (and got) the additional $5.00 a month off my Hopper 3 fee. With the...

    Hopper Upgrades

    Dish customer since Nov, 2000 with a long list of receivers used over the years. Time to get updated to a Hopper W/Sling and one Joey to replace my 722 & 211. Could I get a PM from DIRT as to options, costs, etc. to make this happen? Thanks, (and Happy New Year!)

    L623 is out

    I also have the exact same issue on my WD Ext HD, can't delete or move programs off of it. It appears to be deleting the programs, however when you check to see if it did indeed delete, it is still there. Transferring the programs back to the DVR works, however it leaves the copy on the external...

    Do you think this might include our missing PBS-HD locals in some areas?

    VIP-622 freezing & locking up.. Dish says its "known issue"?

    Mine started out with the freezing, or locking up, then moved on to the inability to select my recordings. Got an error each time I hit DVR twice, however it would come back after repeated resets. Then the big one happened, lost all recordings and timers, they were just gone. Suspect the hard...

    Dish Mover Moved Me Early

    Figures, if something simple can be screwed up, Dish will find a way to do so. Thanks for the help,

    Dish Mover Moved Me Early

    The issue was I lost my CA DMA HD channels (and did not pick up the AZ DMA HD) and the guide was on the wrong time zone, not workable. Had to put it back as before I requested the Dish Mover. Again, what I want to do is schedule a Dish Mover appointment now and not have the move made...

    Dish Mover Moved Me Early

    I will be moving from CA to AZ next month and because I will be going back and forth some, I went ahead and scheduled a Dish Mover appointment for my new address in AZ now on a day next month where I knew I would be in AZ. Well, I was moved right away, my guide shows Mountain Time instead of...

    Intermittent problem -- check switch 622

    Big_Ed posted he had the Dish 200 and 3 sat SW-21, both that do not exist to my knowledge and I have the DPP-44 for my 2 622's, me thinks Roadwarrior got us two mixed-up. However his advice is spot on for the most part. I do not think a LNB is involved as my other 622 was fine at the time and...

    Intermittent problem -- check switch 622

    I got the same error last night, tried to cancel out, but it did a switch check anyway. While 622 #1 was doing the auto switch check, my second 622 was working just fine, even allowed me to switch channels. Something seems strange that #1 had the error and #2 did not, both go to the same DPP44.

    129 Satellite, which dish?

    Duh! I had to go out and take a look, I did use the original W-bracket's center mount. Don't know why I was thinking I used an I-bracket, sorry for the confusion. It was the 500 that had an I-bracket on it. :sleeo

    129 Satellite, which dish?

    In a word, probably. Your mileage may vary, but the 129 on a Dish 1000 is not going to be very solid anywhere. Check out the other posts on the 129 signal reception issues.

    129 Satellite, which dish?

    I used a standard I-bracket I had for a 148 installation. Do you think it may not be the correct length to work with a 1000 dish? It is kind of short. One has to wonder if it is shorter than it should be, would it still be better than a Y-bracket with it's off-center LNB. :confused:

    129 Satellite, which dish?

    It would have been better to use a I bracket (single LNB) instead of the Y since the LNB would have been centered on the dish. Probably makes very little difference in actual signal strength, I made the change from a Y to an I on a 148 dish, maybe it was a little bit better, won't swear it was...

    129 Satellite, which dish?

    That would be great SimpleSimon, just be careful to record the signal strengths over a period of time as we are aware they vary considerably. Not sure what that time should be, my experience to date says maybe 15 minutes or more. I have been using TP-17 as a base, had low 60's with the 1000 set...

    129 Satellite, which dish?

    We have some pretty sharp posters contributing to this thread now, so maybe it's time to ask the definitive question and get opinions. After all, the title of this thread is 'Which Dish' Which stand alone dish should provide the better signal for 129: A: 1000 using the W bracket's center...

    129 Satellite, which dish?

    I do not believe there would be any difference using the center position on the W-bracket for 129 on the 1000 than using an I-bracket, both are centered on the dish. I used my existing W-bracket's center position, however the W-bracket is slightly longer than an I-bracket and since fractions of...

    129 Satellite, which dish?

    Exactly the question. I currently have 110/119 on a 500 and 129 on a 1000. I also have a spare 500, so I could go with any combination I thought would give the best results, such as two 500's or 110/119 on a 1000 and 129 on a 500. I just don't know if a 500 or 1000 gives better results for 129...

    129 Satellite, which dish?

    After reading this thread, I am still a little confused. If someone wants to get the best possible signal strength for 129 and has both a 500 and 1000 dish with a Dual LNBF they can use as a stand alone install for 129, which dish would be the better way to go? Does it really make a difference...

    Average 622/722 Temperature thread, Is your's Hot?

    Is there a way to reset the counters in order to start over with fresh readings? Or is there a preset time period when it rolls out old temps and averages in newer ones? I have tried several things to lower my average temp, yet do not really know to what effect because the old high temp is still...

    AC Power Required for DPP44 Install?

    Yes, you are correct. Make it 3 separators, 3 coax runs and a DPP44 to go please.
