    The DEATH of my 508...

    Well, I found a deal on a new VIP211k so I ordered it and it should be here next week sometime. Still contemplating the 40$ one time fee. Will have to talk with the wife to see if she wants to that or not.

    Yes, I am getting the credit. But that credit will eventually go away and then I have to pay extra.

    The DEATH of my 508...

    Sometime back in 2005, I purchased a 508 DVR. I thoroughly enjoyed using it over the last 7 years. Last night as I hopped in bed with the wife, snuggling up to watch some recordings, I get the dreaded msg that something is wrong and that dvr functions are no longer available. So we just...

    Ya I know, its been around forever. What can I say, I'm cheap! If I hadn't won a 50" HDTV, I still wouldn't have it! Got a nice blackish(?) 110/119/129 dish installed on the side of the house, and now watching a few HD channels. I can really see the difference! I can't remember the rep...

    Sometimes DISH reall burns me up...
