    61.5 help

    I still can't get a signal using all the info you have furnished. I'm using 10' of brand new cable and connectors. I tried the cable on my 721 and it was fine. I have the dish hooked to my 501 and a small tv on my deck so I can see the bar. It's funny I can get a 60% reading on satellite 92 in...

    It does not show up at all. The lnb is dishpro and not the fss one. I'm hoping by connecting directly to the reciever I will be able to get the signal and then run the switch check.

    The one thing I did not do is hook the lnb directly to point the reciever. I'm still learning about the DishPro technology. If a lnb is a DishPro model would it not work with any setup as long as everything is DishPro? I only use DishPro and have no Legacy equipment or switches in place.

    I have an old Dish300 and a DishPro LNBF from my Superdish. I have ran the cable from the dish to the third port on DP34. I can't get the switch check to recognize the 300. What do I need to do to get the dish recognized so I can get a signal? I am using brand new RG6 cable about 12' long. My...

    Can Dish Stop the Bleeding? Is Dish Bleeding?

    Consider me one of guys perfectly happy with the SD video. I have an HDTV only because my old analog set finally quit. I have never given it much thought about going for the HD receivers and channels. If Encore Westerns someday go HD, I might consider it. Besides my two 721's work just fine...

    Dish Network News

    Make me understand the why HD is a must? For the channels that are carried, none are must have. Why not let Dish sit on them and no one sign up? Would that not make a statement that the programming and pricing is unacceptable? Before HD came along, most all of us were happy with the...

I cut the unit off for a couple of minutes and it comes back on. Does anyone think the unit is going bad? It is 3.5 years old. Anyone have any suggestions...

    Caller Id on 721

    I just received another 721 after my original had a hard drive failure. Caller id has not worked on it at all. I guess I'll have to get by without even though it was nice when it was working.

    Caller Id on 721

    I have talked with Tech Support several times about why Caller Id will not work on my two 721's. This last time they told me it was a grounding issue. I checked everything and all appears well but still no Caller ID. By chance I have a 501 which I hooked up to see if Caller Id would work. I used...

    New Technology May Force TV Ad Viewing

    I would boycott any channel that locked me in to commercials. For the most part they are the most disgusting part of television. The show gets you hooked on it for the first twenty minutes than shows commercials every 5 mintues thereafter.

    Who LOVES Dish over DirecTV

    I have had a 501 and a 721 since they became available. I have always been mostly a lurker but have responed to some of the posts. I have never had name based recordings so I can't give a response. My 501 had a power switch failure a year or so ago but other than that I haven't had a problem...
