    Need Suggestions For Stabilizing Pole Mount

    Hey guys. I had a question about pole stabilization. I am living in Houston now and today has been very windy.

    Paperless Campaign

    So I just got a call from Dish letting me know that they are now going paperless. I always thought I had signed up for paperless, but they were just stupid and kept sending me statements. Well, it turns out I was signed up for autopay, which still involves plenty of paper. Anywho, it was an...

    I Can't Watch Dark Knight on Dish PPV

    I am not sure if this has been brought up yet, but I can't watch the Dark Knight on PPV. I checked the guide info on Dish's website, and I should find the HD ppv on channel 534, but the guide doesn't have it. It just skips over the channel. I have it set to show 'all channels' and there are no...
