    Monthly cost difference from 722K to either HWS+Joey or H3+Joey

    Been holding on to my 722K for many years and has served us well. Have held off upgrading to Hoppers due to (perceived?) increase in monthly cost. Have been exploring an upgrade (Hopper+Joey) lately. Have been a sub since '97. Wanting to confirm what my monthly increase would be. For some...

    Man ‘Controlled By Satellites’ Makes 100 Calls To 911 In A Month, Vows To Continue

    Hmm, wonder if he is a poster here..... :) ..... He claims to believe his body is controlled by satellites. “My brain, I can feel it starting. I’m blasted by the signals, every couple of minutes,” he said. “I yell and I scream, ‘Stop it, I don’t need this,’ but they never listen.” ...

    Cable internet installation question

    Considering switching from dsl to cable internet, and was wondering if anyone might know this. I would like them to use a coax from outside the house to the spot in my home where my current router setup is. My concern is that it is wired from 1997, and I think it is likely rg59 rather than...

    Joey on SD tv

    I'm sure this is likely to be another one of those 'we won't know until they are released....' threads, but just in case someone already noticed this at CES. Was wondering about viewing the DVR RECORDINGS list on an SD tv with a Joey. I'm just thinking that the view using snapshots of each...

    Switching to EA dish soon...

    I will be switching to an EA dish this coming Saturday. Question for those that have already been through this - how will this affect my timers on local SAT delivered channels? For example, if I have a timer on my local 36-0 (SD on Western Arc) what channel number will the new HD local be...

    Google Desktop - how did it index my Yahoo email?

    Just installed Google Desktop and was a bit surprised that it had indexed all of my Yahoo emails. When I set it up, it never prompted me for my Yahoo account and/or password. Does anyone know how it did this? Perhaps stored passwords in Firefox?

    Lexington, KY HD LIL info

    I saw this pdf letter posted on our NBC affiliate's website. They are bickering with TWC over carriage disputes. Anyway, the last sentence in this letter basically indicates that E* and D* will be adding their HD local channel in the next several weeks. Great news, especially for our Fox...

    Is there a shortcut to toggle closed captions on/off for the 622?

    Just curious - if not, that would be a nice enhancement. I sometimes find it useful for dialog that for whatever reason I can't understand (talking to low, etc.) Menu, 8, 8, 1, then left arrow, etc. is somewhat a hassle (but not a huge deal) to turn them on/off. This way it could work more...

    DVR recording question

    I have a 622 and was curious about how something works. I have a program from Disney Channel that I record for the kids. It has about 3 seasons of shows (and is still being made). I figured I could set it up to RECORD ALL and not have to worry about it ever repeating a recording. I assumed...

    Minimum programming for 622

    I just got one this past weekend and mentioned it to some other people. Once all the $10/10 month rebates have expired I have been asked what the minimum $$'s per month could be. They mostly watch network stuff but love the HD DVR capability. Would you be able to keep the 622 with charges like...

    ViP222 - Is there a special upgrade for this?

    A lot was discussed for upgrading an 811 to a 211. But I am interested in the 222. We currently just have a single receiver (811) and getting an additonal tuner for no extra fee looks great. Are there any upgrade specials for this box? Or will it be used for new customers only.

    Hoyle Card Games - work on home network?

    Would like to purchase a card game package that will work on a local network. Texas Holdem, Hearts, spades, etc. I've look online at the Hoyle package and it doesn't appear to work like this. I can remember in the early-mid 90's where I worked people would play hearts on win3.1 against each...
