    Media Server Questions

    Thanks for your reply Scott, I was hoping that you would reply:) Would it be possible to pass these questions along to the CEO? If XStreamHD does all of this well, I will be placing my order ASAP.

    Media Server Questions

    I am just starting to research various media players as I recently installed a Synology NAS. I currently am using a PS3 for viewing the media off of the NAS but would like to step up to a media player such as the Dune BD Prime 3.0. I started reading about XStreamHD and have questions about...

    Upgrade from a 942 and AEP

    Call From Dish I got a call from the executive office and they are willing to replace my 625 with a 622 for $199. They would then change my programing package to the DishHD Platinum. Is the $199 charge the same everyone else is paying or should I be able to ask for a lower price or perhaps...

    Upgrade from a 942 and AEP

    Followup Question I am okay with not receiving the new HD channels with the 942 - it will be in the bedroom and we will be okay with the existing HD channels in there. Should I also be looking to upgrade my dish? I currently have two dishes, one at 61.5 and the other at 110/119. To...

    Upgrade from a 942 and AEP

    I currently have a 942 and a 625 with America's Everything Pack. I recently bought a second HDTV for the bedroom and would like to move the 942 to that room and get a 622 for the main room. If I lease a 622, I will be able to receive the new HDTV channels, but do I need to switch my...

    Multiple rebates per household?

    I am currently leasing a 942 and a 625. Since having the 625 installed I have replaced that old tv with a new 37" plasma. I would like 2 622's and would like to know if I will be able to get a rebate for both of them. If not, can I trade my 625 in for the new 622 and then keep the 942? That...

    Cablevision May Be Going Private

    It looks like the Dolan's are offering to buy the outstanding shares in Cablevision and spin-off Rainbow Media as a separate company. Charles Dolan would be running Cablevision and James would be running Rainbow Media. If this would have happened a year ago, maybe we would still be...

    Wirless Phone Jacks

    Our phone company wants several dollars a month for caller id so until we switch to something like Vonage - no caller ID for us. For as little as we use the phone - it is very annoying to pay $30 each month. Vonage does not offer area codes in our area so I am waiting until they do before I...

    Wirless Phone Jacks

    I just ordered a RCA RC930 off of eBay for around $30 shipped. It is not new in the box, but the seller has excellent feedback and a DOA policy so I am pretty confident. When we turned the 625 on last night it gave us the message that a phone line needs to be connected to avoid the fee. If...

    Ocasional audio break-ups on Rave-HD

    I too have noticed the audio blips on Rave ever since I signed up for Voom. I now have Dish and the blips are still there. This is a great channel but I sure wish they would do something about the audio problem.

    Wirless Phone Jacks

    I am sure that this has been discussed, so if someone can provide me with a link that is all I need. I just had a 625 installed in my bedroom and the phone jack is on the opposite side of the room. I don't want to pay the $4.99 monthly fee for not having it connected to a phone line and I...

    E* is now part-owner of Voom 21HD channels

    Conference call over. Not much else to report except that the contracts that Voom DBS had entered into are still being looked at to determine how much it will cost Cablevision to terminate. I personally hope that it costs Cablevision a huge amount of money to break these contracts :p Also...

    E* is now part-owner of Voom 21HD channels

    Still listening to the conference call. A caller wanted to know when Cablevision would carry the Voom HD channels on their cable network, the reply was that they are looking at this and plan on doing it, but no firm plans yet.

    E* is now part-owner of Voom 21HD channels

    I decided to listen to the first quarter earnings call for Cablevision to see what they would say about this subject. Here is what was said (not word for word), Rainbow signed the first carriage agreement for the Voom HD channels with Echostar last week and E* will carry 10 of the Voom HD...

    Voom sold customer list to E*??

    I just wanted to post what happened to me yesterday when I called E* to inquire about adding another receiver to our account. We had E* installed just before Voom went dark. The CSR I spoke with immediately after accessing my account, said "I see that you are a former Voom customer" I asked...

    My experience was virtually pain-free. The installer removed my old Voom dish since I am setup with Dish Pro+ equipment. He then mounted a Dish 500 using the Voom mast which made it go very quickly. He then ran a coax from the 61.5 Dish to my main dish and had me go inside and do a check...
