    Looks Like Lin is back!

    My interaction with our local affiliate: ===== Bill, Thanks for the thoughtful response. I do appreciate fair market values and LIN's right to ask whatever fees they want for rebroadcast of their programming. I live in Pojoaque, and cable is not available, and I cannot get your signal OTA at...

    Poor HD Video Today - 2010-07-11

    I'm seeing terrible HD video performance today. One "frame" every 1 to 3 seconds... happening on all my HD channels. In Santa Fe, NM using a 722 receiver with an OK signal strength. Check Switch didn't change this behavior.

    Albuquerque and New Mexico HD

    I sent the message, but haven't heard any response from Dish. Do they normally respond to messages sent to dishquality@echostar.com? It would be nice to know that KOB/Dish are aware of the yellow screen dropouts, and that they are working on a solution...

    Several yellow screen dropouts during The Office... sending an email to dishquality@echostar.com.

    dfergie, are you on the edge of the spotbeam? My signal on transponder 10 was very strong this morning, but I'm in the middle of the spot.

    Albuquerque and New Mexico HD

    So, does that mean the yellow screen was (is) not due to the weak signals from the old satellite? Must be a problem with KOB's link to Dish? Now that the new sat is working, I hope KOB will work the yellow screen problem, assuming they are aware of it...

    Yes! This is great. My signal strength went from 24 to 78! Hopefully, this means fewer dropouts during stormy weather.

    Albuquerque and New Mexico HD

    Haven't seen the top-half offset problem lately, however, the yellow screen drop-outs are still there (I presume this is because we still get our signal from the old satellite). Anyone know when Albuquerque locals are scheduled to migrate to Ciel-2?

    DISH is having a banner week.

    Yes, yes, yes! I *hate* the Dish Network goulash of packages, "special deals", fees, etc.. It is almost impossible to know what programming package to subscribe to. In my case, I see a list of packages and add-ons on my online report, but the monthly bill has a different nomenclature that...

    Ha! The yellow pic. Yeah, seen that one a few times. We should have a stronger signal soon, already seeing improvements in some of the transponders.

    Albuquerque and New Mexico HD

    If you happened to record anything from last night, you'll see it - on "Life", "Law & Order" for sure. Didn't catch Leno last night, but I suspect it would show up there, too....

    Albuquerque and New Mexico HD

    KOB's pic is offset last night and this morning on the Today Show... looks like the refresh rate of the top half of the picture lags behind that of the bottom half. When there is a cut from one shot to another, the top half briefly displays black, while the bottom half looks normal. When there...

    I can only manage 22-24 signal strength on 129. Hope the new sat improves my reception.

    commercial volume out of control

    CNN-HD seems to be worse than other channels (at least on dish network). Late at night, I'll be watching CNN and then they cut to a commercial and BOOM! everyone in the house wakes up.

    622 Hangs/Freezes

    OK, so Dish techs arrived yesterday around 4:30pm and swapped out my 622 with a 722. I haven't had a chance to test. It may be a few days before I'm confident the problem is resolved. More later...

    Dish tech never showed up yesterday. Calling them back this morning... :-(

    622 Hangs/Freezes

    The 622 still freezes. My recording of SNL this weekend is unwatchable due to this problem. I called Dish support back and supposedly a tech is coming today from 12pm-5pm with a replacement receiver. However, it is now 4:30pm, and so far no techs...

    622 Hangs/Freezes

    Dish techs showed up today and re-pointed the dish. They could only get the signal for 129 transponder 18 up to around 23-24. Hopefully, this is enough and it fixes the freeze problem. I should know if it worked later tonight.
