    Will I need New dish?

    I plan on letting him do his job but I also want to be in informed consumer. Without the advice of you guys here I would just let this guy come in and do what he hast to do never asking any questions and when he left I would probably no longer have that 77 satellite. Plus years ago when the last...

    Will I need New dish?

    And just for my own piece of mind. Im getting the hopper 3 and 2 wireless Joeys. So the installer would run the lines from my current sat to the dph42 then he could go straight to the Hopper using my existing cable run. Is that correct? I read that I only need the hub if I have other wired...

    Will I need New dish?

    This is all stuff I had no clue of which is why I came here to ask the experts. So hopefully I can get the installer to leave my dish alone and just install the 42 switch and be on his way After activating the equipment

    Will I need New dish?

    Thank you Guys for all the great advice. And I really don’t know a lot about this stuff so is it worth it to try to have the installer replace my LNB with the same one only newer ( still keeping the 77) Not sure if this stuff goes bad but it’s all 6 yrs old. Thanks

    Will I need New dish?

    Thanks, I would definitely like to keep the 77 sat for that reason alone. Hopefully the tech will work with me. Sent from my iPad using the SatelliteGuys app!

    Cost of Adding Receiver

    Right now I have a vip 722 running my tv 1&2 and a 211 with a HDD hooked up to it on tv3. I purchased the 211 box myself. I need to add a 4th tv and need to know which would be the better option price wise: A) add another 211 for tv4 or B) get rid of the 211 on tv 3 and get a 722 for tv's 3&4...

    Networking/Dishonline

    Sorry about the confusion. I want to be able to watch live tv from my laptop or Iphone like it says you can on the dish on line website. Its not really clear if you need a slingbox for that, at least to me anyway. I was just wondering if I hook my 722 up to the internet if I'm able to access...

Can U use a wifi stick usb adapter or do I need to use an adapter that goes into the ethernet jack? Also will this allow me to access the tv content from dish online or will I...

    Recommended hard drive to work with 211

    As long as the receiver is turned on the drive will have power, but if you turn the receiver off you also turn off the drive, just as in a computer. I have a standard usb drive on my 211 and if I turn the receiver off no scheduled programs will record. I have to leave the receiver on all the...

    What Am I Missing Here?

    Right now I have the DishDVR Advantage Classic Silver 200 + Silver HD package which will cost 67.99. I have a 722/222. In looking at a chart I found the Classic Silver 200 + Silver HD with locals is only 62.99. What am I not seeing price wise here? Why not switch to the lower price package to...

    At Wits End - Snowy TV 2

    After trying all things mentioned here with no luck, I went to HomeDepot and bought some new RG6Q cable. I ran a line from the outside box straight to the diplexer(sorry if this is not the correct term) on the back of the receiver. TV 2 had a perfect picture. Im guessing that whats left on my...

    My 211 DVR function is activated

    The drive is a Hitachi sata drive out of a non working lap top I had lying around. Its in a cheap Rocket Fish USB enclosure I picked up off Ebay. Although it has an ac adapter Im thinking it may actually turn off when the receiver is off. I set it to record a program and left the receiver on...

    My 211 DVR function is activated

    Before I went out tonight I set the receiver to record three programs then using the remote turned the receiver off (just like I do with my 722). Not one of the programs recorded. The test program I recorded while watching tv was still there, so unless there is a setting Im missing looks like...

    At Wits End - Snowy TV 2

    I moved my 222 to a new room that did not have a cable line in it. I installed a new RG 6 line from the box to the inside wall plate. I terminated both ends with twist on connectors. When I originally moved the box I just unconnected it from the wall plate keeping all the original wires and...
