    How long does it take for the EHD to "Spin Up?"

    Called DISH to have the EHD function activated for my HWS, was told "oh, just go ahead and connect the EHD to the receiver, it should show up and be fine." So, did connect an older WD unit, turned on the TV and saw a pop up from DISH notifying me that an external hard drive had been connected...

    Can I transfer "old" EHD recordings to an H3?

    Back in the day of the 722, used to archive favorite shows on EHD, ended up with three EHD's worth. Presently I have HWS, and am thinking of upgrading to H3. Never had accessed the EHDs on the HWS, now I wonder if they are "toast," given the requirements for USB 2.0 cables, etc, per the DISH...

    Universal Sports Network--any successors?

    I have been hoping some other network (NBCSports, BEin), might step up and fill the void left when USN went dark last November. They broadcast a lot of the cycling events that don't make the cut for NBCSports, so it definitely leaves a big gap in coverage for those of us who enjoy pro road...

    Any DIRT members online right now?

    Did not recognize any DIRT member names on the "helpers" list (5/28, 7:20 PM MDT). Thought there was a gentlemen's agreement they would sign in when on duty. Need to follow up on an issue. Thanks

    Sling Adapter Missing in Action

    Getting ready to travel, went to check out the performance of my Sling Adapter, found it was kaput. No light on the device itself, and, the DISHAnyhwere site kept coming up with a "not connected" message after trying to bring up a recorded program. I got the Sling Adapter back in the day when...

    DISHAnywhere to AppleTV

    This might be one of those "well, duh!" things, but I gotta ask. I want to access my home DISH system (Hopper with Sling Adapter) through the DISHAnywhere app on my iPhone 4s. I was told by Apple Customer Support that "all I need to do is make sure AirPlay is enabled, then you're set." Well...

    Sling Player vs. Sling Box

    I have a Sling Player, which I got from DISH when they first became available. Used it originally with my 722K, then hooked it up to the Hopper when I changed to the H/J family. Have used it while traveling, thru an iPad hooked up to an HDTV. But when I used it, I had poor Internet speed...

    Moving part-time to Denver, thinking of Comcast for Internet only, but.....

    Hello all: Been lurking a bit on this forum, I like the straight talk and the absence (mostly) of bashing. Anyway, been a DISH customer since their year one, out here in CA. But we need to be in Denver part of the year now, due to family obligations. Last trip to Denver, tried using...

    Breaking Bad fans, confirm your recording order for 9/29

    I was checking my Daily Schedule, got to next Sunday, 9/29, noticed the absence of Breaking Bad. Went to the guide, AMC is doing a marathon, and the series finale is indeed on, but it was not showing the little icon for being on the record list. Definitely cannot miss that episode. Maybe it...

    DISH Anywhere and Personal Mobile Hotspot

    I may be way "out there" with this thought, but please bear with me. Last time we traveled, took our iPad with us, hoping to use the DISH Anywhere system to keep caught up with our favorite shows. Place we stayed had horrible wi-fi, try as it may, the iPad just could not deliver the content...

    DVR getting hijacked

    Had my Hopper+2 Joeys since April, love it, but.... On more than one occasion, have had programs recorded which I did not select. Generally not an issue, but Sunday night, two of my favorite shows, which I have on the weekly cycle to record, got bumped by two programs I did not select. One of...

    Did we lose the Chinese television channel CCTV?

    Occasionally watch(ed) the English-language Chinese station "CCTV," on 265. But last night, having not tried it for several weeks, could not find it, there was nothing on 265 at all. Tried a search on the forums for CCTV, but, as would be expected, got a lot of "closed circuit television"...

    The cable that goes nowhere??

    I upgraded to Hopper + 3 J's a couple of months ago. Previously, I had two 722K's, each in separate locations. The DISH tech used one of the RG-6 lines from the DP Plus to set up the Hopper, and, until yesterday, I thought the other RG-6 line that went to the second 722K was just abandoned in...

    Is DISH Net worth it?

    Been lurking here a bit, trying to see if there is a "global" assessment of DISH Net service. Been with U-Verse Internet for several years, not totally enamored of ATT. Was hoping a direct satellite feed for the Internet signal might avoid the slow downs and occasional land-line outages...

    Didn't set to record Pokemon, but still got it

    Been thoroughly enjoying the Hopper system since install in late March. Went away for about a month, had all our favorites set to record, got 'em all, DVR states it is only 25% full, gotta love it. Small, but vexing, issue. I keep getting a couple of shows on the recorded screen, that I had...

    Guess I live here now

    Just got a Hopper and her three kids living in the house as of today. After what, ten plus years with the ViP boxes?, this is a new ballgame, but I am enjoying the experience. Big shout-out to MaryB at DIRT. I pm'd her Wednesday night with a whole bunch of newbie questions, she got right...

    BEIN Channel carries cycling, too

    I had been thinking the only places to catch pro cycling races was either on NBCSports or USN, but this morning, I noted the red record light on my DVR was on during the morning, when I don't normally have anything scheduled. Turned on the telly and saw BEIN, Channel 408, was televising the...
