    You can setup protection on series you care about. It will delete other things instead.

    Rain Fade .. day 1 after install :(

    You probably need to have the system peaked again. I had to have that done a few times after new dish installs. You might also want to check the connectors. The first install at my new house, there were several that were loose. I tightened everything and picked up a good amount of signal.

    I like the phone app to schedule recordings. A lot of times I use that instead of the DVR. ( I mostly watch from a STB ). Other thing I noticed is that when you have 2 recordings with an EHD, the DVR will slow some.

    VoIP Provider Recommendations

    I have voicepulse and think its great. I had AT&T callvantage before that. The one feature that I like most about voicepulse is the call handling. I setup a default rule to send everyone to voicemail, and then an "always ring" rule for "family" and "friends". That way only contacts in my...

    I switched to voicepulse. Its not the cheapest, but my wife is fine with it. I even got my retired parents to use it. My mother doesn't even know how to turn on a computer and she is ok with voicepulse. Just a thought.

    You have to select the triple play 35/35, ultimate, phone and then go to the next screen. Its $500. I think you can get $300 for any other triple play if you don't want to max it out.

    Although, this still pops up for triple play... So, you pay $15 more for phone and get a $500 gift card. :)

    Talk me out of leaving dish

    I was curious, so I went and played with the sign up wizard. Looks like they don't have as good of deals now as they did a couple of months ago. When I signed up, it was basically the same price for either double play or triple play ( with or without phone ). Now its $15 more for phone, so I...

    I had that problem and was told that I had to have more than 10 items in my queue or I may not get a title.

    I didn't want the triple play either, but thats where the discounts are. I got 35/35, Ultimate, and Phone for $154.37 a month after taxes. ( multiroom DVR and 2 STBs. - no other packages ) This is 2 year contract with the price locked in and I got a $500 gift card, which paid for groceries this...

    I was concerned about BBC America HD before I switched (Dish to FIOS), but I can hardly tell the difference. The SD quality on FIOS is pretty good, even on larger screens. Not perfect, but pretty good.

    how to hook up HD tv and receiver to the internet?

    I agree. If it is fairly easy, I would do like Jay is saying... Run one Ethernet and hook up a 5 port hub at the TV. A fairly cheap 10/100 Mbps would work just fine. If running a wire is an issue, then use something like an old linksys router as a client bridge to your wireless. You...

    Weird family Dish Network Florida

    I agree. I'm sure they've told their friends what a great son you are and that you can fix anything. :) The other people probably don't feel confident enough to call and talk to Dish. They would rather just wait for someone to come take care of it. They probably don't realize that Dish will...
