    Dish just called me -- Free sling adapter?

    I had received an email from Dish Network today regarding the free Sling Adapter they wished to send me. Questions; Will the Sling Adapter work with the applications that I have already paid for and installed onto my phone & tablet (both Android)? Do they require that the original Sling...

    3D in 2012 -- May send me to DirecTv

    Check out Martin Scorsese's "Hugo", or Michael Bay's "Transformers: Revenge if the Fallen" in 3D, and I think you'll see that James Cameron has increasing competition where directing 3D movies are concerned. :-)

    Panasonic DMP-BDT500

    Nice review - Mine is on order and should arrive at my local Best Buy soon. Looking forward to read any future findings and/or impressions that you've got on the new player.

    75" Mitsubishi LaserVue (L75-A91)

    Here is the video that I had taken from my second visit to see the LaserVue. I made a point to bring along my IR thermometer, and obtain readings from both sides of the television (connection panel on the right hand side, and venting on the left). I had also took a temp of the top, however it...

    75" Mitsubishi LaserVue (L75-A91)

    On Saturday September 11th, I took a 1.5 hour drive down to Primetime Audio/Video of Rockford Ill, in order to obtain a first-hand view of Mitsubishi's 75" LaserVue television. This is the resultant video footage...

    Remote Access Frustration

    I have just upgraded my 622's to a pair of 722's and was experiencing the very same thing. In my case, I am attempting to remove my old receivers from my SlingGuide account, so that I can add the new receivers. No matter which browser I use, I am sent back to the SlingGuide account login page...

    Stargate SG-1 Discussion

    I see an ancient communication device listed as an item to be auctioned - does this mean that SG-U is no longer in production?

    922 Pics

    Well that bites! I own one ViP622, and lease a second one. I can honestly say that I will not be purchasing or leasing a 922 until the IR is enabled. I can use the universal remote of my choice (Harmony 880) with it.

    Is Chuck Renewed?

    yeah - but the producer is reported to have been forced into some 'serious budget cuts', and they are only getting an order for 13 episodes. ...hardly a 'full season'. I am really hating the production of 'half seasons' and branding them as 'a season'. :( Still, it is better than reality...

    It is currently for sale on Amazon, for $57 - a very good price, considering Best Buy had it listed in the store for $99! ...I wonder how much lower the Gold Box price could be?

    SlingGuide - Problems

    I was trying as late as 7:00 p.m. CST. with no success. Just tried again and it appears to be back up and running.

    SlingGuide - Problems

    Yup - sitting on the "Connecting to receiver, please wait" message. Let's hope they are performing some sort of update.

    SlingGuide - Problems

    I can confirm this - My 622's were activated and I have SlingGuide functionality and never needed to modify my firewall.

    SlingGuide - Problems

    Thanks again. The 622 that I have in my home theater runs in single mode, so the tuners are not split, feeding other televisions, so tuner one should not be an issue. It is primarily viewed in the early morning while my wife is on the treadmill, so I shouldn't run into any major conflicts...

    SlingGuide - Problems

    Thanks Zulu - it sounds as though the Solo will suit my needs. It is just my wife, my six year old daughter and myself, and the only time I would use the Sling is when we are either on vacation, or when I am taking my daughter to swimming lessons. I'll be able to stream live TV if I wish, from...

    SlingGuide - Problems

    I am considering the purchase of a Slingbox, but see a number of models. What is the consensus on the Slingbox Solo?

    SlingGuide - Problems

    Can someone confirm that having a ViP622 or 722 without an external Slingbox, will not allow streaming of content to computers or mobile devices. Perhaps I had incorrectly read the transcripts of the Tech Chat, in that they gave the impression that those models would have some sort of...

    Joss Whedon's Firefly

    Check out the recent round-table lunch with Joss, Ron, Alan & Nathan. It'll leave you wanting way more than you already want. ;)

    December 18th Dish Retailer Chat Recap

    Charlie - stop re-naming the gorram packages and use the capitol that would be saved by not having to change your marketing materials (for the re-named packages) to off-set your rate increases!!! ....jeeze... ...and I'm not even a collage graduate! :rolleyes:

    New Software Updates Discussion Thread

    I have no feeling one way or the other (unless I had received the update and had problems with my local channels). However many variables there may be within the 622/722 platform, to have issues being reported from such relatively small sampling group (active members posting in this forum)...

    New Software Updates Discussion Thread

    On behalf of those of us who have not received L615, thank you for volunteering to be beta testers. :D Perhaps this is why Dish did a staged roll-out? is unfortunate that they appear to skip over any thorough testing their firmware. Sorry to hear that it has messed up your locals...

    it wasn't all that 'all'. Both of my 622s remain at L614.

    It's a deal! ...but only after this season of 24 has finished airing. :D

    Maybe so, however Vegas has legalized 'things' that we don't see all that much of in the frozen Midwest. :)
