    Odd HDMI issues with new home theater system.

    I don't think you can turn off CEC on the hopper.

    Odd HDMI issues with new home theater system.

    Here is what I've found out so far. 1. Brand New HDMI cables did not fix anything. 2. The hopper connected directly to my Monitor or my DLP Projector causes no issues. 3. My LG BluRay player connected to the Sony HT Receiver plays fine, no matter what gets turned on or off first. Cycling the...

    Odd HDMI issues with new home theater system.

    Just got a new sony surround sound receiver. Hooked it all up, and the hdmi from dish was purple... I thought "awe crap, the HDMI board in the Sony is bad". So I reboot the Dish Hopper red button style. Comes back perfect. I shut the receiver and the Sony off, and turn it back on. Purple...

    Inside an old cable head-end.

    According to the channel chart, it was used for Bloomberg. Bloomberg was launched in 94..I'm wondering since they had like 3 dishes, so at least 5 satellites...if Bloomberg was a small dish only channel? Maybe back then it was free on Directv like the Nasa channel? BTW. I can't remember if I...

    Inside an old cable head-end.

    Did some google magic. Hallmark was changed from Odyssey in 2001. So this is before 2001. Turner South was short lived, lasting from 1999 to 2006. Since this paper has that channel, it's after 1999. New Urban Entertainment operate from 2000 to 2002, so it's after 2000. So looks like this...

    Inside an old cable head-end.

    The channel charts, including phone numbers to call. This must be generic, because the head end only had around 32 channels.

    Inside an old cable head-end.

    Here is the equipment inside. According to the channel chart, there were 30 channels. Now since each channel needs it's own tuner and it's own modulator, there should be 60 peices of equipment. However I only see about a dozen. I googled these. Could not find what they do. A modulator...

    Inside an old cable head-end.

    A tornado recently blew the door open a cable head end, located on the property of a friend of my dad. The cable company has not used the head end in 10 some odd years. With his permission I went inside and took some photos. The head end itself. I found it odd that there was, and never has...

    Conflicting recordings.

    I have no recordings scheduled on the hopper in my room. However my mother wanted to record something in the other room. Keeps saying "recording may conflict". What gives?

    Dish won't replace smart card, since when?

    I'm pretty sure if there "were no hopper cards". That my receiver wouldn't be saying "please insert your smartcard".

    Dish won't replace smart card, since when?

    So I asked the guy if I can cancel the replacement. He says I can only refuse the package. Seriously dish, the uneducated people you have working as representatives of your company are making it look bad. Why can't you train your reps better? This is simple sh*t, not highly technical...

    Dish won't replace smart card, since when?

    Nick (ID: 04V): We have to set this up as a smartcard exchange. They would be expecting a smartcard back, or you would get charged a $50 unreturned equipment fee for that smartcard, as they are quite expensive to make. I told them I didn't have my old one! Seriously..WHY IS DISH NOT TRANING...

    Dish won't replace smart card, since when?

    Ok, now I'm a little pissed. Why doesn't Dish train their reps better? This is beyond moronic. Chrizel Ann (ID: J3L): I understand. Chrizel Ann (ID: J3L): I'm sorry to hear that Chrizel Ann (ID: J3L): Let me check what we can do with thaty Chrizel Ann (ID: J3L): One moment please Chrizel...

    Dish won't replace smart card, since when?

    I have not had one replaced in eons, but this weekend I had family over and my 3 year old cousin thought it would be funny to take one out and chew on it. I called dish, and they said the entire receiver would need to be replaced. Since when?

    Dish has it's own porn site.

    We all know dish has porn, but I just found out through uh...research and stuff..that dish has it's own 18+ website for one if it's own porn channels, complete with even a dating site. Not gonna post the link here, for obvious reasons, but did some backend checking and it is indeed owned by dish.

    VideoPlus Model: VP1000 Satellite Receiver

    Reviving an old thread, I found one today at an auction. It's a really odd thing, because they are small, about the size of a blu ray player. There is no output for an actuator, and the channel, skew, and audio control are all done via knobs on the front. There is no remote. The manual states...
