    New install questions

    Everything is working fine, but a few annoyances coming from the genie; may be me just not knowing how to do it on the hopper, any tips appreciated: Used to be able to go to a channel and remove it from my favorites list on the channel Favorites lists shows both HD and SD channels, found...

    New install questions

    One difference I notice from the genie to the hopper is the genie would automatically choose the best format to fill the screen such as when watching older shows; on dish network I have to do this manually with the * button. Is there a setting I am missing?

    New install questions

    Had the install yesterday, about an hour after I called to sign up. I went with the hopper, a super joey, and a wireless joey. Decided didn't need it on the fourth tv.

    Another question, is it OK to have my wireless router next to the hopper? The joeys are wireless, correct?

    New install questions

    If I have joeys installed in all the rooms and later decide I do not need all of them, can I just send some of them back? Is there a charge and would it change my contract any?

    New install questions

    Is it possible to use sling to watch different programming on each television, instead if splitting the outputs? If so, what do I need to make it work?

    New install questions

    Probably going to jump from direct to dish and have a few questions on the best set-up. We will have 4 tvs: 1 main, 1 that gets moderate use, 1 that is used a little, and 1 that seldom gets used. Is it possible to get two boxes (hopper, super joey) and somehow use the sling feature to get...

    Dish says I own my receiver?

    When I log in now all options except billing and restart service is greyed out. I think I will email dish after I receive the box to return the receiver and ask them to confirm that I need to return receiver #### and do not need to return #### because it is an owned receiver.

    Dish says I own my receiver?

    I called and cancelled dish yesterday and the rep said they would be sending a box for me to return one receiver. I told her I had 2 receivers, a 622 and a 722. She said I only had to return the 622 because I owned the 722. Both receivers were installed at the same time as a new customer. Anyone...

    Full Screen Program Guide no longer an option - thanks Dish!

    This is a rear projection television, no settings as mentioned, in 16x9 standard mode. I found a work around, by switching from 6 rows to 4 rows I can see all the channels listed on the screen. This is going to take a lot longer to cycle through all the channels compared to way it was without...

    Full Screen Program Guide no longer an option - thanks Dish!

    Does directv offer the option for the guide without video? I can not stand the guide with video, and to top it off the bottom row is showing up out of view so I can not even see only the channels unless I go through them one by one instead by the page like I have always done. Never had this...

    Losing HD Absolute. Any suggestions?

    I agree about the fees. The low price of the absolute package is the only thing that is giving dish the edge over direct with me. I have 4 televisions, 2 dual dvrs, absolute package with HBO. If dish pulls the plug on absolute, I can go with direct and pick up some channels I would like to have...

    Post your Dish offers to move from Dish HD Absolute

    Yesterday I dropped Cinemax and picked up HBO since they started charging me for Cinemax on my last bill and my wife wants HBO. I did it online and it appears that it did not affect my absolute package. I like the absolute package (price being the main reason) but there are a few channels I...

    Selecting TV1/2 for recording .... Would really love this 722 DVR feature ...

    I agree with OP. I have wanted this feature ever since I got the 722. Let them have a 'simple' default mode for the masses, and an 'advanced' mode for those of us that want control.

    Audio stutter

    The audio on my 722 is stuttering really bad tonight. I rebooted the receiver and it did not help. Is this a problem with the receiver or is dish having problems on their end? Thanks

    No Fx HD or SPEED HD here

    I have the absolute package, so I did not get speedtv. I would like to watch the all star race Saturday but am not willing to lose this package and double my bill for one race. Is there any way to watch it online?

    HD Absolute - how long?

    +17, I don't look at it as absolute being cheap, I look at it as the other packages are overpriced. There are a few channels I would like to have, but as others stated, I do not want them enough to double my bill. If I ever upgraded it would probably be to the AEP since the dvr fees inflate the...
