    Satellite AV Contest - GEOSATpro microHD - Enter to Win - Drawing on 6/11/2012

    My greatest summertime memory is going up to the Catskills to visit my Grandparents. My grandfather would take me down to the stream and taught me that patience is a virtue when fishing! I was a kid and patience didn't come easy (or at all) and I never caught much back then but as we grow older...

    722k second TV - can I hook up to computer monitor w/no Coax?

    So I have been offered a 47" Plasma monitor from my FIL. I want to put it upstairs in our loft. The issue I have is this, the upstairs loft is connection 2 on my 722 that is downstairs.

    Blockbuster on 612 stinks! Is it coming to WDTV?

I am one of the lucky ones who still has a Blockbuster 2 miles down the road from me, so I am dropping Netflix as we were only casual users anyways. The additional movie channels, disc by mail and streaming seem like it should...

    Exchange 612 for a 722K??

    Mary has been super helpful (love the DIRT folks) and I think I might upgrade to the 722K and drop the 211 receiver. It should solve all of my issues and will drop $7/mo as well.

    Exchange 612 for a 722K??

    So I thought about adding a HD and paying the $40 fee to the 211, but then I would be close to $100. At that point is it better to opt for the 722?

It locks up on reboot constantly (I come down in the morning and listen to the fan spin on high...
