    Random Reboots (ViP 622)

    My elderly mom is happy with her 622. She really doesn't want to upgrade because she doesn't like to learn new things. However, lately it's been randomly rebooting. I'm going to try using an alternate power outlet for a while to see if it resolves it, but I suspect that's not the issue. It's...

    Keep Getting Message That OTA Tuner Was Disconnected

    All day today, while my wife has been watching satellite broadcast channels, there have been periodic blank screens. It happens maybe every 30 min or so. Lasts only a couple seconds. Then the channel banner comes on and the broadcast soon follows. Minor nuisance only. All sat signal...

    Unsolicited Remote Being Shipped to Me

    I just received this email. Apparently DISH is shipping me a 54.1 remote. Why are they doing this? I didn't ask for it. I don't want it. My Harmony remote does everything I want a remote to do. Are they going to jack with the software thereby disabling the legacy remote's function? I guess...

    Bizarre Coincidence?

    I have Hopper with Sling Yesterday ~1300, I received a call from 866-668-8047 that my caller ID indicated was DISH Net. The person on the other end said they noticed I was experiencing frequent signal loss and then asked if I was having issues. I told her that I wasn't. She said, "Okay...

    Hopper not seeing OTA module

    I've had this module for at least a couple years without issue. Sometime last week I noticed my OTAs were missing from the guide. I initially didn't think much of it, but today I actually wanted to see one of my OTAs. I went to the OTA antenna setup on Hopper software and it doesn't have the...

    DFW (Dallas/Ft Worth) LiL issues?

    Is anyone else having problems with these HD locals this morning? I keep getting pixelation, break-up, then yellow screen. Mine are on 61.5, spotbeam 24. My signal strength is where it usually is (65).

    Previously, I could stream a YouTube video from my android phone to my Hopper. I don't even remember how I did it, because once I set it up, it just remembered it and automatically did it. I could pull up a YouTube video and select share and I could choose BubbleUPnP or semperVidLinks (somehow...

    Channel With Scrolling Football Schedule?

    My Dad was unable to find the Baylor game today, so Mom called and asked what channel it was on. My TV was off, so a quick google search revealed it was on FS1 (150). They have a ViP622 (I have a HWS). Mom said, sometime in the past, she'd seen a channel in which the football schedule and the...

    61.5 issues?

    Around 0730 this morning, while watching an HD LiL on my HWS, the image froze. No error screen. The HWS responded quickly when I went to guide and I was able to tune to the OTA version of the same channel. When I attempted to check signal strength, there was no lock on 61.5. My other 2 sats...

    Hopper Swap - No Tech Install?

    A friend of mine has a Hopper 2k with external sling and 1 Joey. The Hopper is crapping out. He called DISH and they are sending him a new box Saturday. I assume it will be a HWS. He said they told him to just swap it out and then call them to activate it. I know DISH requires a tech to...

    Harmony Remote & Joey

    I have a HWS but no Joey and I exclusively use a Harmony One remote. A friend of mine has Hopper 2000 with Sling adapter in his living room. His Harmony One operates his Hopper flawlessly. He has a separate setup in the bedroom where he wants to use a separate Harmony One remote. The...

    "All Channels" Favorites List Will Not Stick

    I usually leave my guide favorites set to "My HD Channels". Occasionally I go to "All Channels" for browsing. I can change the favorites to "All Channels", but as soon as I re-enter the guide, it goes back to "My HD Channels". This only happens with "All Channels", so I guess I can just start...

    Guide Data - No Information on select stations

    I noted Walking Dead wasn't in my timer list to record later tonight. When I check the guide, "No Information" begins displaying on AMC starting around 2:00 pm until 2:00 a.m. tomorrow. Browsing around, I discovered a few channels with the same issue. System Info says all sats are fine...

    Remotely Set DVR WITHOUT Sling?

    A friend has Hopper 2000 (no Sling). He wants to remotely set DVR from his phone. He's not interested in actually watching anything from his phone. His Hopper is broadband connected. Can he still use the DISH Anywhere site and app even if he doesn't have Sling?

    Beyond The Farthest Star I had the pleasure if seeing "Beyond the Farthest Star" on October 18, 2013 at the Cinemark West Plano in Plano, Texas. I have seen several faith-based films. In each case, I left the film feeling like I had just watched a made-for-TV movie or an after...

    Home Transponders & Minimum & Average Thresholds

    So, those are the EA Home Transponders. What are the WA Home Transponders? Is there an updated Minimum & Average Thresholds file? I'm going to troubleshoot a friend's WA DISH today and this information would be useful.

    61.5 down? Anyone else?

    As of 0645 this morning, I have abysmal to no signal on several transponders on 61.5. I can't find the latest "home transponders" to check, so I just checked the ones I've used in the past. Anyone else having this problem?

    PTAT decided not to record

    It's 2030 CST & I noticed no red light on the Hopper. I have it set to record every night. I took it out of standby & noted tuner 3 is "watching" the big 4, but not recording at the moment. What gives? Sent from my Samsung GS3

    Exposed Unused Joey Port on Solo Node

    My Solo Node is mounted to the side of my house and is exposed to the elements. We have pretty deep eaves, so the only rain it will get is blown rain. I assume it's intended to be mounted outside anyway, but since I do not have a Joey, the "To Client" port is unused and thus exposed. Does...

    FS: D-Link Xtreme N Duo Wireless N Access Point Model: DAP-1522 I've been using it as a wireless bridge for my ViP622 and ViP722 to connect to my wireless network. Works flawlessly, but the Hopper has...
