    OFFICAL: I am STAYING with DISH Network thread

    10 years with Dish and loving it. And since News Corps fee increases are so outrageous, I suspect every provider is going to fight them.

    Is there a reputable company, that can backup a VIP 722 to DVD

    She could subscribe to Netflix and rent the DVDs or stream as the content becomes available for about $9 a month.

    New EA dish install

    If it is true, you are better off to leave it as making the signal better on 61.5 will probably weaken it on 72.

    Anyone else seeing the audio out of sync on TNT HD?

    Yup, out of sync for me and at my daughter's place.

    Now I remember why cable sucks...

    I don't know whether to laugh or get angry when I see the cable ads touting no rain fade vs satellite. I had cable for 9 years and it seemed like almost every thunderstorm knocked it offline for hours. Plus cable get its content from satellite feed. It takes a real doozy of a storm for me to...

    My head is spinning so confused

    I think your installer is blowing smoke if you have no obstructions to the south. I get EA just fine (61.5/72.7) in Northern Vermont. 77 is the only one I can't get a good signal from, but that doesn't seem to be a problem.

    BBC HD needs a 3rd dish??

    The Burlington, VT DMA only requires a single 1000.4 Dish for 61.5/72.7 satellites. The signal from 77 is too weak to use and not needed anyway. You will not need a wing dish for sat 110 like the tech will probably tell you because 61.5 and 72.7 take care of all our channels so make sure it is...

    Unneed wing after EA

    Will there be any peaking issues as a result of removing the 1000.4 LNB to disconnect the wing dish input? I am assuming it connects to the back of the LNB.

    Unneed wing after EA

    I just got an Eastern Arc update with a 1000.4, but the tech insisted I needed a 110 wing dish also. I've discovered this is not true and I am not getting any channels off 110 (I am an HD customer). The EA and wing dishes are mounted on separate ground posts with cabling running underground...

    Does Dish still require 2 dishes?

    It depends on your DMA. Burlington, VT has been 110/119/61.5 which requires two dishes, but effective April 21, we are supposed to work with 61.5/72 and can get those with a single 1000.4 dish.

    Charlie Chat Monday Night

    I contacted Dish via chat and was told the Platinum HD was a separate and valid charge, but they would remove it from my programming if I wanted.

    722k-playback ending prematurely

    I'm having the same issue with my VIP622. Most of the time I can back it up and get the rest of the recording.

    Statement from DISH - Not Getting the New HD?

    How will we receive the promotion code for the upgrade for the new HD channels? I get online billing and auto pay, so will it be emailed, snail mailed or just posted to my account? I wasn't going to worry about it yet, but just saw a $5 increase in my statement, so now I want everything I am...

    Setting Timer for Alice on Sci Fi

    We set a timer for Part 1 of Alice on Sci Fi tonight, but are unable to set a timer for Part 2 on Monday night. It just shows the red X in that time slot after we attempt to set that timer. Any ideas?

    NASCAR on ESPN stutters badly

    It cleared up for me, but if history is any indicator, it may go back and forth between stuttering for a while, then good for a while.

    Anyone else getting a lot of video stutter during NASCAR race on ESPN? I currently watching the Nationwide Race at Lowes Motor Speedway and it is pretty bad. And it isn't the first time.
