I am moving over to Direct Feb 1 when AT&T picks up the new partner. If it is not possible via normal specs would it be possible to at least watch DVR shows...

    Benefits of the easturn ARC

    Thanks to Scotts review of the eastern arc we know pretty much that if you have a 2 dish setup now with 110/119/129/61.5 there is really no reason to upgrade from a PQ perspective. However having that setup in Ohio I never lose 61.5 in a storm only the others "61.5" is the wingdish. Are the...

    Here in Cleveland I have been experiencing intermittent sound issues with the NBC affiliate from Dish. I do not get the issue off air so I assume it’s only a dish local encoder issue.

    Remote DVR setting

    Now that dish has an active ethernet connection on the VIP DVRs. Does anyone know when we will be able to go on the web to set our DVRs to record shows? I for one think they need to develop an easy to use web interface we can log into. Sure would make it nice. While they are at it can we...

    Lip Sync issues on National HD

    Am I the only one who has noticed significant lip sync issues with the Dish Network national HD channels? Is this an issue with MPEG4 or with the accusition methods used by dish? I wonder if they are getting this content via IP instead of layer 1 which FEC on IP would cause such an issue. If...

    I see the uplink activity still shows WOIO/WJW/WEWS/ and WKYC on Sat location 61.5. This is a problem since the Cleveland area RSNs and Sports Time Ohio - Home of our Cleveland Indians is still on sat location 129. I am thinking about getting a dish 300 to point at 61.5 for locals. Is it...
