    satellite 148 w/ Dish500?

    I just tried to connect using SW21, but it doesn't work. Sometimes it shows sat 110/119 (no 148), but sometimes it shows only sat 148 w/ bad reception. With birddoggy's comments, I checked the LNB of original Dish500. It shows "plus". So I think the installer replaced LNB to Dishpro Plus Twin...

    satellite 148 w/ Dish500?

    Currently I have Dish500 with twin LNB to get satellite 119 and 110. Is it possible to have satellite 148 by sacrificing one of them? Does it require LNB change or software/installtion setup change? Or, I'd better have additional dish for (additional) sat 148? I have small dish (I think it is...

    Efficient way to record DVD from DVR

    That's 625. But it also requires me to stand by for the exact time to stop recording when it's done. If DVR625 can play multiple video in sequence then It may solve my headache, but DVR function seems to select one by one to play manually..

I'd like to record it, say over the night (TV off), by setting up to play multiple DVR videos to be recorded into DVD, and...
