    Will DISH ever support Dolby 5.1 audio in Netflix?

    DISH cabling for an apartment

    I am a satsified Comcast customer except for the price I pay for what I get now (enhanced basic SD service and one premium On Demand channel), but do like some things about DISH better...the DISH on-screen guide, for example, is superior to Comcast's. I also have a freind who is OK with it...

    DISH cabling for an apartment

    I don't have a utility closet on the patio, or at least one that is available to me. There is a closet that contains my hot water heater but they keep it locked and even if I were to be able to utilize it, I would then need to get the cable thru another bedroom to the bedroom with the TV, which...

    DISH cabling for an apartment

    As much as I like DISH (my girlfriend has it at her house), it sounds like just sticking with Comcast makes the most sense. With their Triple Play promotion I can get HD, VOIP and 20 Mbps intenet for about $100/month (for pne year) , which is about 1/2 of what I am paying now for my Comcast SD...

    DISH cabling for an apartment

    Thanks everyone. My living room TV is just inside the sliding glass door on my patio so getting a cable there from the dish using a flat cable should not be a problem. It's the bedroom TV I am concerned about because getting a cable from the dish to the window in the bedroom would require...

    Will this work with a sliding glass door? No windows near where the dish will be.

    DISH cabling for an apartment

    I live on the 2nd floor of an apartment and DISH came out several years ago and said that they could not install because of the fact that all the cabling in my apartment complex was owned by Comcast and the only option was to drill new holes for new cabling. I have since found out from my...

    CSN Bay Area HD

    Yes, this is very annoying and continues. I see above that someone said it's something to do with DISH allocating only so much bandwidth for RSNs. What is an RSN?

    Any confirmed bugs on 612?

    This happens to me as well. Anyone know what causes it? (EDIT: I thought this thread was about the VIP 612.)

    OTA Indoor Antenna

    Yep, sometimes rabbit ears are all it takes if you are close enough to the towers. Isn't technology great...I mean, who would have ever thought we would go back to using our old rabbit ear antennas to get HD broadcasts?

    OTA Indoor Antenna

    We're the same distance as you are from the Sacramento towers. We've had good luck with the Terk HDTVA indoor antenna. I've found that if you can raise the antenna up as high as possible, that makes a noticeable difference in signal strength. I've got both of ours sitting on top of the curtain...

    Why is the 622 retarded?

    I am frustrated at times when I DVR programs that run longer than their scheduled time and then I miss the end of the program. It seems as though there should be data that the DVR can read which basically says the program is still going and will continue recording past the normally scheduled...

    Real simple (to ask) external hard drive question?

    Just one more question... :) When setting up a recording, is there an option for which device you want to record to...DVR or EHD?

    Real simple (to ask) external hard drive question?

    Thanks Randall. Is that a "per DVR" activation fee or does it cover the whole account (in my case, two DVRs)

    Real simple (to ask) external hard drive question?

    A couple related questions: Can one just buy an EHD then attach it and have it work, or does it require some sort of activation by DISH? Can the EHD be moved between two VIP612 boxes?Thanks!

    Here are the 612 temps: Bedroom TV - High: 127 Low: 32 (yes, that is what it says) Ave: 113 (The bedroom is where the problems were the other night; OK, bring on the jokes!) Living Room TV - High: 125 Low: 111 Ave: 116 And for you voyeurs, here is a pic of the 612's diagnosis screen in...

    Average 622/722 Temperature thread, Is your's Hot?

    Did I read somewhere here that raising them a bit helps? Does that imply that you put something small under each corner to act as a support so that air can circulate underneath the box?
