    How to pair a 21.0 remote to a Hopper Duo

    BYOR (bring your own receiver)

    I've been away from Dish for 2 years, ready to come back, but looking for a very basic package without a commitment. If I want to buy my own VIP622 from DishDepot, install it and call up Dish to activate. Where can I find the cost of packages without equipment.

    PIP location

    It's always irritated me how the 622 PIP window is so far out in the main picture. I was wondering if the Hopper puts it any closer to the edge. I'd prefer it right on the edge. Could someone upload a pic of how it looks? Here's how the 622 presents PIP.

    When I go to the 'compare packages' page, it shows Fox News as available in HD in the Smart Pack, yet I've never gotten it in HD in that package, only the SD version. Every time I chat with a rep, they just say that its only in SD in the smart pack. Anyine else have this issue?

    So, to get FoxNewsHD, I called to upgrade from Absolute to Silver. I have a 622 and a 301. The rep said they couldn't upgrade me to Silver unless I also upgraded the 301 to a 211k, for $75.
