    New TV, Dish vs Antenna comparison

    I know that the antenna is supposed to give the best reception for network tv. I guess it’s an uncompressed signal? I’ve always read that but to be honest I’ve never really been able to tell much difference between OTA and Dish on my locals. I had a really good tv (65” Samsung JS8500) although...

    Why won’t remote control tv?

    In my bedroom I have a cheap Olevia brand tv that I’ve had for years. I’ve also had the same Joey and remote for years. The past few weeks I’ve had problems with the dish remote controlling the tv (power & volume). The batteries are good so I’m not sure why this is happening. It only happens...

    MacBook Pro or iPad Pro for college?

    My daughter will be starting college this fall as a freshman. For her high school graduation present she has asked for a new laptop. We are an Apple family so she was leaning toward the MacBook Pro. But after reading about the new iPad pro she’s not so sure now. I know the new iPads can do many...

    Preferred customer promotion?

    I noticed by bill went up $20 this month and it appears I’ve been getting a $20 discount for the past 12 months. I can’t remember for sure but I’m thinking this was for the preferred customer promotion?? Any chance Dish is renewing this promotion? Sent from my iPad using SatelliteGuys

    Why didn’t my show record?

    I just noticed that The Neighborhood wasn’t in my recordings folder and there was a new episode last night. So when I go to the schedule for last night I noticed it says “not applicable “ for recording started and stopped. Has anyone else ever noticed this? It’s obviously in reference to the...

    Help with wireless router

    I recently switched from Charter internet to AT&T fiber. The speed I’m supposed to be receiving is 300mbps and occasionally I get that. But I seem to have a lot of issues with web browsers lagging when using iPhones and iPads. After some research on the AT&T forums it seems to be a wide spread...

    Cord cutting advice for heavy DVR user

    I’ve been with Dish for over 15 years now and I really love the hopper because I’m a really big DVR user. During prime time I’ve been known to record up to 8-10 shows in one night. But I’m really getting sick of losing channels (or at least the threat of losing) because of contract negotiations...

    Dish customer looking into Direct, with questions

    I’ve been with Dish for over 15 years and I’ve stayed with them mainly because I love their equipment. I record a lot of tv and the hopper has been awesome for that. But Dish seems to have a lot of disputes with carriers and it’s starting to get old. We lost HBO months ago and I had to end up...

    iPhone broken screen

    My daughter broke the screen on her iPhone 8 Plus. The phone still works fine but the screen is cracked really bad in numerous places. Her phone will be paid off in August. Does anyone know if Apple will let you trade in phones with cracked screens? I’m sure I can get a new screen put on here...

    Has anyone else had any shows not record on the hopper? I’m currently on software U535 (not sure how long I’ve had it). I watch a lot of tv and have all of my shows to record all new episodes. But last night I noticed that my timer for Chicago PD didn’t record on Wednesday night (although...

    How do I get rid of multiview?

    I decided to check out the bracket view app this evening. While in the app I clicked on the multiview link. Now every time I click my select button on the remote it highlights the multiview app. In the past anytime I wanted to check what channel I’m on or see how much time was remaining on a...

    Charter internet vs AT&T Fiber

    I’ve had Charter internet for a couple years now and never really had any issues. But my price recently went from $45 to $65 per month for 100mbps. Yesterday I had an AT&T salesperson stop by and said that their fiber internet service just recently became available in my neighborhood. She’s...

    Sending photos without losing resolution

    What’s the best method to send photos from an iPhone to a Mac? I create a photo calendar every Christmas for my parents. And I want to use some photos that my wife took on her iPhone. I’m afraid if she text me the pics then I’ll lose some resolution. I need to keep the best resolution possible...

    Black out game?

    I was looking for this weekends Tennessee / Charlotte game on Dish finder. It says channel 404-2 ALTSC. I know that’s an alternate SEC channel. But it says “yes” to blackout. Does that mean it’s blacked out in the Knoxville area? Or the entire state of TN? Sent from my iPad using SatelliteGuys

    Move hopper to another room

    Can my hopper 3 be moved to any other room and still work? At one time I had a tv and Joey in my den. But that tv was never used so I got rid of the tv and Joey. But the wiring is still in place. We’re about to do some remodeling in my living room (with the hopper). So I would like to...

    What channels are on each satellite?

    My dish is mounted on a pole that’s concreted in the ground. I bumped the pole yesterday while mowing. It didn’t seem to hurt it at the time. But tonight we’re getting some rain and now most of my channels aren’t working (normally rain doesn’t effect it). I’m guessing my bump knocked it out of...

    Cable modem for Charter

    I bought my own cable modem several years ago when I switched to Charter cable because at the time they were charging monthly rent to use theirs. So this morning I had a technician come out to move my modem from one room to another (my back won’t allow me to go under my house). Everything went...

    Setting timers with Dish Anywhere app

    Has anyone had issues setting timers remotely using the Dish anywhere app lately? Ive never had any issues in the past. But I tried setting one last week and also tried again tonight. But nothing recorded either time. I’m beginning to wonder if it has something to do with the new iOS11 I...
