They are coming with hd DVR, hd receiver and slimline dish. I assume they're installing SWiM. The hd DVR (I assume will be an HR24) does not include an OTA tuner? I spoke to a CSR to request an AM21. She told me that she hasn't had any other requests for one. Apparently most...
My DVR is connected to my new Panasonic display using HDMI through my Av receiver. Everything looks stunning except Dish. When set to 1080i the on-screen guide and graphics look awful. Video is reasonable. I set it to 720p. It looks a lot better now. Can't believe that dish does not...
Sorry if this has been covered before.
I have been with Dish since VOOM went dark. Still have a ViP622 DVR. No other receivers. I just got a 65" plasma. Everything looks stunning on it ... except Dish. I have an HDMI connection from it. Can't believe they still don't support 1080p. I...
Hi Guys & Gals,
I have a dish 1000 aimed at 119, 110 and 129 and a dish 500 aimed at 72.7. Not sure why because I thought that everything on 72.7 is on 129. I would like to move the dish 500 and aim it at 118.7 for some French channels. Is this possible?
I played with it at BB last night. The PQ is stunning. Watched the Samsung Blue Ray setup at CC. The PQ just didn't wow me. More manufacturers and studios are supporting BR but the quality of the initial BR titles are disappointing. I don't know what to do. I'm pissed at this stupid format...
According to E* and dishchannelchart.com, Antenna Satellite should be on 605, Mega Cosmos should be on 602 and ERT should be on 603. I'm only seeing Antenna Satellite on 605 in my EPG. I don't subscribe to these channels but are considering it. With a DPP Twin for 119/110 and a...
On January 30, I swapped an 811 for a ViP211 and changed my programming to DishHD Gold on Febuary 1. I have been thinking about the new DVR. The 622 holds 9 days of EPG data and the 211 only 2 days. Reading Scott's review pushed me off the fence. :) I just called to see if they'd upgrade me...
I upgraded my 811 for the ViP211 and gave up 2 usefull features. One being UHF control. I purchased the upgrade kit and can now control the 211 in my rear playroom but the UHF Pro remote that came with the 811 is useless. Apparently they're on different transmit frequencies. The 811 remote...

Is it possible to change the six channels that appear on the Dish Home screen? Right now, mine are CNN, FOX NEWS, CNBC, Weather Channel, HGTV, MSNBC (I think). I couldn't find any menu selection to change these.
Sorry if this has already been asked but here goes:
I currently have a Dish500 with DishPro Twin LNBF aimed at 119/110 and a Dish500 with DP single LNBF aimed at 61.5 joined with a DP 21 switch.
Can I replace the 21 switch with the 34 and add a third dish aimed at 129? I'm not clear if...
I have a Winegard 30" dish that I was using for VOOM to improve rain fade margin. It is the DS-2078 ( http://www.winegard.com/home/76cm.htm ) with RCA style feed support.
Is there an LNB that will fit that I can use for FTA (linear transponders instead of circular on DBS)?
I saw a guy with his VOOM van at the Orlando Hamfest on 2/12. He was showing the receiver and dish and was handing out brochures. I didn't have time to stop and chat but was pleased to see him there. No visual picture demo, though.
I received a download the day before Thanksgiving (Nov 23). The box crashes and locks-up shortly after the VOOM starting-up screen. I called VOOM on Thanksgiving morning. They were able to schedule a service call with the original installer on Friday. It was actually scheduled for Friday...
