    Will a VIP 211k work?

    I'm thinking of getting rid of my Hopper 3 and going with a 211k that I own in order to save on the $15 a month DVR fee. I really don't record much and wouldn't miss the DVR that much anyway. Would the 211k work with my current set up or would I need a technician to come to my home?

    Fox looks horrible

    Opinions on an OTA setup

    Just got an estimate for an OTA install at my home and it is quite higher than I expected. $2300 for high end antenna, high gain booster, 350ft of cable and a mast pole with rotor put in cement.

    Intermittent HDCP error

    I'm getting this error occasionally during the 4K broadcast of the Baylor-Iowa State football game on channel 540-01 and it flashes a screen stating the content is unauthorized. Is this a problem with my Hopper 3 or something else? Faulty HDMI cable maybe?

    Question about 4K channel 540-1

    Should this channel show up on my channel guide even when nothing is broadcasting? I have set the channel guide on my Hopper 3 to display all channels, but 540-1 is not there.

    Hopper 3 picture quality versus other receivers

    Can anyone tell me if I'll get better picture quality with the H3 versus my VIP 722k? Been thinking of upgrading to the newest and finest that Dish offers if it'll improve the picture on my Sony Bravia 4k TV.

    Problems with a lot of channels

    Been having problems the last couple of days. The video is jerky and stutters constantly. Anyone else having problems? I'm on the Dish America pack with a VIP 612 receiver. Was first only affecting ESPN and ESPN2 but now it seems to be affecting many others.

    Thinking of trying FTA satellite

    Can someone give me an idea of where to start, such as finding installers and such. A google search pulls up nothing but sites in the UK and Ireland. Thanks.

    Dish Network 4k programming?

    Was wondering if anyone knows if Dish has 4K programming or when they plan to add it. I have the Dish America package and every channel seems to be in 720p.
