    Dish Remote Control App

    I've been with dish for many years, and do like it. I use it primarily with SageTV though, and never interact with the boxes directly. I do have an interesting question though. Dish seems to have rolled out, as part of their Sling add-on to the 722 boxes, a remote control app for iOS and...

    STB control over Ethernet.. possible?

    So, apparently the new ethernet/http interface of the DirecTV boxes offers a lot of interesting options (especially for HTPC/PC DVR users). Most importantly, it opens up a way to control the STB via ethernet, as opposed to serial. Dish, on the other hand, doesn't even have the serial option...

    Old VOOMer, maybe new DISHer.

I have looked at the programming packages offered, but was a little confused about the actual deal for Voom customers. Anyone know what the deal actually includes? I am interested in the...

    The New Channel Poll...Which Channels should VOOM now add?

    This is to hopefully make it easier to see what channels people really want. Hopfully this will help VOOM prioritize the addition of new channels. Hopefully this will work better than ending up with a 15 page long thread. Sean, STICKY this if possible... Thanks, CraziFuzzy
