    Unlock Home Video Network?

    I'm new to the Hopper this week and have been exploring the various features. I found that it recognized and accessed my Plex Server, which is a great feature! However, I have my Hopper set up with parental locks and when I did this, it locked the Plex access as well, so I would need to enter...

    Is there a way to tell which remote they will send you when you order from the Dish Website? I'd like to have a 21.- remote, but I can't find a way to tell which model they send out. I need UHF on Receiver 1, so I don't want to get stuck with a 20.- that is IR only on 1. Any help would be...

    No ESPN Interactive on a 722

    I searched the archive and was unsuccessful in finding an answer as to why there's no ESPN Interactive on my 722 receiver. I like the feature of being able to check last night's scores the next morning, without having to sit through the scrolling scores on ESPN News etc. Anybody have any info...

    Storage space inconsistent with transfer to EHD

    I recently added a usb external hard drive to my 722. I copied some hd movies over with no problem, but when I looked at the space available on the 722, it didn't appear to equal the amount of space I should have freed up. According to the listing on the usb drive I was copying 20gig of...

    Combining Signals - Problem

    I need some expert advice. I'm taking the modulated output of TV2 from my 722 and combining it with the rf output from my 508 and sending it to a bedroom TV. When I do this, the signal from the 508 on Channel 4 becomes degraded with interference. If I view each feed separately without the...

    Remove Hard Drive from 510...

    Is it feasible to remove the hard drive from a 510 that I just retired and use it with this Thermaltake BlacX USB Docking Station and hook it up to my new 722 via USB? If so would the DVR material I have stored on it still be recognized, or would it have to be re-formatted...

    New 722 - Couple Dual Mode Questions...

    Just got a new 722 receiver this week and am trying to sort out the Dual mode set-up and have a couple of questions.... When I'm in dual mode (two TVs in different locations), TV1 and TV2 should be able to see all the recordings (both TV1 and TV2) from the DVR, correct? If so, I'm not sure...

    SuperDish for 129?

    I'm looking to upgrade soon to HD and wanted to know if the SuperDish I already have could be used to pull in 129 for the HD content? Just for kicks, I did a signal strength test from my current receiver and I was picking up a fairly strong signal on 129. On one of the transponders I even...

    Upgrade ?: HD on 129 - Signal Strength

    I'm looking to upgrade to HD and it appears that I'll need a Dish 1000 set-up to grab the HD content off of 129. Since 129 is more to the west of 110/119, I'm concerned about a tree branch that might block the signal. From other's experiences, would one branch from my neighbor's tree cause...

    Question about 722 HD antenna input

    Just wondering if the 722 would recognize the HD signal from Cable as an antenna input. I am currently getting my local HD from Basic Cable service and didn't know whether or not the 722 would recognize that, or does it have to be an antenna only? I have a Samsung QAM box that tunes the...

    The Big Ten Network

    For people who want this channel I think it's time to take a couple of minutes and send a polite request, urging Dish Network to add the Big Ten Network. If you don't do something now, when September rolls around and E* still hasn't added the channel, don't come on here complaining. Action needs...

    Dishpro Legacy Adaptor Problem?

    I've got an old workhorse 4000 that is no longer receiving a signal. It appears that the Dishpro Legacy Adaptor may be the culprit. Is it possible to get any kind of signal to the 4000 by bypassing the adaptor, or any way to test to make sure it's the adapter that's bad and not the receiver...

    Here in the Champaign-Springfield market in Central Illinois, the ABC affiliate is changing to NBC and the NBC affiliate is changing to ABC. Currently, E* does not carry the NBC affiliate (from Champaign) that is changing to ABC, but carries the NBC affiliate out of Springfield. Is NBC in...

    DVR Recording Lock-Out

    Does anyone have any info as to whether or not there are plans to make it possible to lock individual recordings on the DVR? Currently I believe the only way to lock a recorded program is to lock the entire channel from which the show was recorded. This is not really a workable situation. For...

    2 Month SuperDish Install Appointment Canceled...

    Back in December when Locals were offered in Champaign I called and had an install date set for the SuperDish on Feb. 16. I scheduled the morning off from work, but I wasn't holding my breath based on what I've been reading here. Sure enough on Saturday the 14th I get a call from E* telling me...
