    What is going on - were you hacked?

    I came to the main page and under "recent threads" say the title "I'm back....and an announcement to the FTA folks". I clicked on it and our work software blocked the redirect to another page - it was so quick that I could not copy the re-direct down. Went to the FTA forum and did not see the...

    Is this normal for a 211K? Delete timer requires reboot.

    My 1 TB EHD is starting to get full so I decided to delete some timers that recorded everything. Everytime I deleted one it went through the reboot process. This is a pain when trying to delete multiple timers, if this is the norm. Thanks Steve

    Solar flare affecting Anik F2

    About 6:30 AM EDT F2 was practically knocked out by a massive solar flare. Shaw channels affected are the French and most HD. Telesat says it will take about 12 to 18 hours to correct the problem. Satboyz

    WNGS/WBBZ on 61.5 and 129

    Recently looked in the guide and saw a bunch if stuff that I wanted to watch finally now that it has ME affiliation(reminded me of RTN/V of old). No signal until I figured out the receiver was trying to tune it in on the notorious SB13 that is very hard to get in my area (thanks to The List). My...

    Will 211k ever support >1GB EHD?

    With the cost of a 2GB EHD under $100 and me making the mistake of telling my wife how to use the DVR, I really want to use a large EHD. It is hard to switch out in the entertainment on a regular basis. Just wondering if anyone has heard about a receiver update. Thanks Steve

    I just logged onto my account and it says that I need to reset a 4 digit PIN to talk on the phone to a CSR. It wants to know the current one and a new one. Thing is, I don't recall setting one up ever. I tried all kinds of combinations for the current one, but no luck. Is there some kind of...

    Can this be done? 61.5/72.5/110/119

    As I mentioned before in another thread , I would like to get the new HD channels on 72.5, I guess. Buffalo HD locals are on 61.5 and the signal level is horrible so I do think I want to keep my 20" dish and not go to a 1000.4. I have to sometimes switch to sd locals on 110 (I currently have a...

    On the weekend, some fine people here helped me find and lock onto RTV. Now the obsesive compulsive comes out and I have to know how everything works. I have googled the DVB-s standard and they mostly mention the history of the standard and not what it all means. Specifically, I want to...
