    Can I watch recorded shows on VIP722 after De-activation?

    We don't watch much Satellite TV anymore, so I just called to get deactivated. The support person said that I won't be able to watch anything on the DVR (VIP722 receiver) after it is deactivated. So I had them schedule the deactivation out for 1 week. Is it true that the recorded content on...

    Internal Hard Drive List for 722 Receiver

    Yes, that is the same list that I have found. I am in a bit of a pickle, as I own my 722 receiver, but am planning on canceling my service in the next couple of months. So it doesn't make sense for me to add the service plan so that I can get a replacement receiver. Dish requires that I...

    Can someone point me to a current list of "approved" internal hard drives for the 722 receiver? After a fair amount of searching, the list I can find is over 5 years old.

    Digi-cipher receiver -- is it worth it?

    Sorry, I should have been more clear in my needs. I already have a GEOSATPRO micro HD receiver, an AZBOX Premium HD+, and analog receiver (with a VCII module).

    Digi-cipher receiver -- is it worth it?

    Several years ago, I was interested in getting a Digi-cipher receiver and started this thread: I never did get a DCII capable receiver, but am again thinking about it. The question is - is it worth it? Is there still...

    Titanium Satellite - New Products Announcement: PLL "lite" C-Band Phase Lock Loop LNBFs

    For clarification - I am already running an ortho setup with the 8115s. I know that the 6ft dish is limiting, but I don't have a ton of space and I don't want the dish to be an eyesore to the neighbors. I am running this feedhorn/LNB combo because I want the best performance possible on the...

    Titanium Satellite - New Products Announcement: PLL "lite" C-Band Phase Lock Loop LNBFs

    Brian -- can you comment on how the C2W-PLL would compare against an ortho feed with a pair of Norsat 8115 LNBs? I have a 6 foot dish and am trying to eek out every bit of performance from it.

Meaning, if I am on the same satellite, same transponder, same LNB, using the same cabling, but swapping the receivers, would...
