    OTA Adapter

    I wanted to tell people about my absurd experience with Dish when I tried to buy their OTA adapter back in November. As noted, I bought the AirTV Dual Tuner Adapter.

    OTA Adapter

    Back in November I read on this site that 2 of my locals could be lost to a contract dispute, so I called Dish about getting the Dish 2 tuner adapter. As I remember, they would not sell me the adapter, but for $150 they could come to my house and install the adapter. I explained that I already...

    Opinions on an OTA setup

    Do you have broadband internet? If so, you have options to get programming that way.

    Nexstar Media Group forces blackout of nearly 5.4 million DISH customers

    Let's do some math. $1,000,000,000/5,400,000 customers = $185+ per customer asked by Nexstar. If this is for 36 months, then Nexstar is asking Dish to charge an average of over $5 per month to each Dish customer who currently has channels blacked out. I have both the local Fox and CBS...

    CBS Hopping

    My previous programs on the EHD do not show protected status. Today, the two programs that I moved to the EHD yesterday no longer show protected status! So it's back to normal.

    CBS Hopping

    Those two programs are auto hopped for me. It is odd that my H3 timers aren't set to protect them, but when I looked at them on my external hard drive where I moved them, they are protected. I'm the only person in the house, so Dish software must be responsible for changing them to protected...

    Movie reviews not working?

    Yeah, they've been gone for a few weeks. I chatted with Dish on their website and it was a known issue. I have a Hopper 3 and PTAT auto hop stopped working as of May 18th. This was also a known issue. I hope other customers contact Dish so that they fix these issues.

    External hard drive for dish hopper?

    Dish says USB powered hard drives aren't supported and 2 TB is the maximum size supported. I have a Hopper 3 and bought a USB powered WD Easystore 2 TB portable hard drive from Best Buy back in 2018. It has worked just fine. I also bought a USB hub that can be powered if needed. So far, I...

    Downgrading to Welcome Pack?

    I have the Welcome Pack. My account shows I can add Heartland Pack, Outdoor Pack + Premium channels + Fox Soccer Plus, Dog TV, Racetrack TV + Latino Live Streaming channels + Midnight Lounge channels. I didn't see Star And Stripes Pack and National Action Pack listed. Flex Pack channel packs...

    Local Fox channel guide data wrong.

    There's another thread about the Super Bowl that suggested setting up a manual timer for the OTA channel. I'd give that a try.

    Hopper 3 misssed recordings

    Thanks, this suggestion helped me watch 2 episodes of a different program that disappeared from my Hopper 3, but were available on Dish Anywhere.

    Arghhh, I am so frustrated with the H3 timers situation

    I just accessed DishAnywhere.com from my PC, selected DVR, then My Timers. I was able to get a list of timers, but it only listed timers than are scheduled to record something in the next 8.5 days. Edit: It also includes scheduled but skipped timers. It is printable, but my 2nd page over...

    Hopper with Sling Old UI Software Version S545 is Here

    I got it April 14th around 3 AM as well. Not Happy about it. I had 3 black screen reboot events in 24 hours on the 15th. 2 black screen reboot events on the Sunday, the 16th. Not sure it's the new update, since I've had a black screen reboot occur a couple of times before over the last few...

    Justice Central

    Sorry about that. I've never watched the channel and needed to read the thread more carefully.

    It's channel 252 (SD, not HD) in "My Channels" guide in my Welcome Pack.

    After Hopper S542 Update, Guide Search No Longer Works.

    I have a HWS updated to S542 and my search function is also broken. I contacted Dish 2 days ago to report the problem. There is no solution except to update to Carbon UI as suggested by Joe891.

    Seek and record timers stopped working: sports

    Yesterday I noticed that the search function on my HWS, software version S542 updated 12/14/2016, could not find anything in the guide--not even the program I was watching! It could only find DVR (including EHD's) and On Demand programs. I tried rebooting, then contacted Dish, but no solution...

    crashing when cycling through recording screens

    I've had the same problem occur 3 times in the last 2 weeks when prime time was recording. It occurred another time during prime time in early November. I was updated to S541 on 10/26/16.

    How long does it take to format an EHD?

    Amazon no longer has the WD 2TB My Book EHD's at a reasonable price, but it looks like Staples.com has them available. http://www.staples.com/WD-My-Book-2TB-Desktop-USB-3-0-External-Hard-Drive-Black-WDBFJK0020HBK-/product_265653 Can't find them in stores around here anymore, so I stocked up...

    How long does it take to format an EHD?

    3TB not supported by Dish. https://www.mydish.com/external-hard-drive Some people claim to have used 3TB, but I stick with 2TB WD My Book EHD's which is the maximum size supported by Dish.
