    Got error 303 last night now can't modify favorites list

    Last night I got the error code 303 - Receiver's memory is now being programmed. I assume that means an update. After whatever it was doing finished, I looked at my favorites list. It only had all the On Demand channels. When I went to edit and move all my favorite channels back to list one...

    Split joey to 2 tvs

    Yes, powered splitter is the best way to go. I have a joey going to a powered splitter with hdmi. The splitter then sends the signal also via hdmi to my a/v receiver (which then goes to my projector), another output goes to a tv in the office room, and the third goes to a bedroom tv. No...

    On Demand question

    Yep, that is what I complained about in my first post. It is not worth it unless you commit to the movie from start to finish. If you come back tomorrow to watch where you left off you will have to go through all the commercials again. Crazy!

    On Demand question

    Looks like we have to live with it. From now on I will schedule my watching of an on Demand movie for when I can watch it completely from start to finish.

    On Demand question

    I agree, they are a bonus and I have watched quite a few, commercials and all. However, I have watched the movies straight through from start to finish. But the last one I watched I stopped about half way through, hoping to pick up where I left off the next day. I don't mind the commercials...

    On Demand question

    I loaded an on demand movie and watched half of it. I planed on watching the second half the next day. When I went to finish the movie it kicked me back to the start, rather than where I left off. I could not fast forward to the spot I had left either. I had to sit through all the...

    New Service, getting a hopper 3 with only two tvs...

    I like to use as little Dish equipment as possible, especially if I have to rent that equipment from Dish, no matter how many tvs I have. I have four displays: a projector in the den, and tvs in the master bedroom, computer room and second bedroom. The master bedroom has the Hopper. The...

    Nexstar, DISH Network reach multi-year agreement

    They sure do get richer! And they complicate things as you described, to insure there is always some legal chaos going on because of all the entities involved. No wonder Dish wants nothing to do with them.

    Nexstar, DISH Network reach multi-year agreement

    Like I posted earlier, Nexstar operates both my local NBC and FOX stations. The NBC local is now up and running as a result of this agreement but FOX has been down for months and is still down. The guide shows no programming and the station itself shows access to fox programming through the...

    Nexstar, DISH Network reach multi-year agreement

    I got my NBC local back but not FOX local. The FOX local is also operated by Nexstar and the two stations are shown as sister stations. I don't understand why I got one and not the other.

    Cancelling Dish Question

    To resurrect an old thread I have a question about returning equipment if I cancel Dish. I have one hopper and one joey plus the dish on the roof. I am pretty sure I have to return the joey and hopper since I don't own them. What about the dish itself on the roof? Will they make me return it...

    Why is my monthly charge for AT250 higher than shown on website?

    Thanks, crodrules, that must be it then.

    Why is my monthly charge for AT250 higher than shown on website?

    My bill shows that I pay $97.99 for AT250 (plus $12.00 locals). The Dish website page which compares their different plans shows AT250 for $94.99. I chatted yesterday with a service rep who said the lower amount is for new customers. I don't think that is right but she could not explain it...

    Nexstar dispute looming...

    I have not had my local FOX station for six months. Now NBC is gone. We have had blackouts before and eventually they settled and programming resumed. The FOX station owner (not sure who it is) and Dish obviously are no longer talking or at least not making progress. I'm not sure where...

    Nexstar dispute looming...

    I'm paying for all my locals through Dish and not using an OTA because of distance. I lost FOX local several months ago and now I will lose NBC. I complained and all they could do for me was deduct $5 a month from my bill. That is not good enough. I now have Youtube tv which (with tax) is...

    Nexstar dispute looming...

    My Fox local has been in dispute for six months and now it looks like my NBC local will also no longer be available. I have the local package because I live too far out from some station towers to receive an ota signal. I would need a deep fringe antenna with booster and router atop a 50'...
