    Excessive Signal Loss

    Strange Thing With LG PLex App

    I have Plex on my Hopper 3, Firestick and my 4 yr old LG TV App. My LG Optical output is PCM only. I have no idea why, but regardless, it's why I normally run optical out on the hopper with my Polk 5.1 SS System. When the output is PCM/Stereo, the power light is white. When it's Dolby Digital...

    New Fee To Add Joey

    Well, I don't like this. There's a $10 fee to add a joey, aka the $25 fee for WiFi Joeys, unless you're a 1 Star Customer with Dish Protect Gold. This going to be a double nightmare when Sales reps do upgrades from VIP to Hopper Duo and not add the needed Joey for TV2 - which is very common...

    New On-Demand Commercial

    Today was the 1st time I heard the On Demand commercials touting over 80,000 shows and movies on VOD. Mine still shows 15,000 so they must not be uploaded yet, but I guess the rumor that Dish was adding 70,000+ Titles was true
