    Wally RV Problems- Software Update?

    I saw it on the Facebook "Tiffin Motorhomes Technical Forum" on Facebook. It is hard to post a direct link, but you can search. It looks like the folks with the "dome antennas" are complaining about a variety of symptoms since an update on 4/24. Some are getting pushed to SD, some have...

    Wally RV Problems- Software Update?

    I've been following an RV forum where multiple Wally users say they began having problems with a frequent "signal loss" message. They are all saying that this popped up in the last few days, possibly after a software update. Any ideas? Is Dish aware/working on this??

    Scott's Friend Leaving Dish

    Vivek certainly will be missed! Somehow, I suspect that there is more to the story. It appears that this is where he is going: Liberty Latin America Appoints Vivek Khemka as Chief Technology and Product Officer

    Ham and Dish Ground

    I'm starting to think about getting my ham shack set up at the house. It has been many, many years since I've played with any of the HF stuff. I will have a second floor ham shack with some type of long-wire antenna, which will likely be in the eaves. I'm starting to consider grounding...

    Why we are not going to CES.

    Yeah.... It all adds up. While it is fun to gadget-watch and people-watch, It has become too durn expensive. A few years ago, I had a clean and fairly nice hotel that I could get for less than $100 per night. This year (I just looked), rooms are $419 at the same place! When you add that to...

    Iphone 8 Battery Life

    I'm getting about 3 full days, like 72 hours, (really!) of battery life on my Iphone 8. That compares with about a day on my 6s. I did a backup and restore, so app demand should be similar on both. Are others seeing the same thing?

    Smartbox and IP Output

    We're giving some thought into installing Smartbox in a large communications center. We'd like to have the option for multi-channel TV on flat panel TVs, as well as an IP interface so that channels can be viewed on operator's PCs. Does anyone have experience with this? I see some limited...

    Ham Radio guys on this forum

    Yes... Other than being a "WN8" as a Novice and now a "WB8" when I got my General way back when, I have the same call, even though I now live in "5" land.

    Hopper 3 / 4K Joey - 4k Programming List

    Thanks Scott.... I don't have a 4K primary TV yet. I wondered how Hopper would handle. When I tried to download the 4K Version of Defiance, it indicated that I didn't have a 4K TV and asked if I wanted to download a compatible version. The Samsung TV says that it is playing a 1080i (not...

    So far not a good upgrade.

    The sift to the new remote hasn't been too bad. I was sure that I wouldn't adapt to it. I have both on the table next to my chair. Now I always reach for the new one.

    OK... Here is the summary of my install: Task: Replace a HWS and Joey1 with a Hopper 3 and a Joey4K. Location: Austin, Texas area I planned to go through DIRT, but they were (understandably) jammed and I was in the 200's. I called Dish yesterday (Saturday) morning to check on the "deal" and...
