    So What Do Y'all Think (Signal Levels on HD Satellites)

    Okay, I had my tech out today to realign the dish b/c I was seeing low levels on the new 99a satellite (I have an H21) - and my 103 levels had dropped as well since my install in February. Well, after the fact, everything was pointed perfectly. He checked at the dish, at the ground block...

    Executive Center Email Address

    Does anyone here know of any Executive Center level email addresses for DirecTV? DISH Network has one that would put you in touch with the Executive Relations group that would handle issues, complaints, etc. After getting bent over on my $50 referral credit - they told me...

    New Direct Customer

    Yesterday, with the help of all the great rebate and referral posters here (thanks!!!), I had a chance to get DirecTV installed. Despite the constant 30mph with gusts to 50mph winds and snow squalls yesterday, a great technician came out - removed my 2 old DN dishes for me, and installed the new...

    FIOS HD Quality

    With the addition of Food HD and HGTV HD this past week (okay, I know we also got LMN HD) - I just have to say the picture quality of HD on FIOS TV is AMAZING. I previously had Food HD and HGTV HD on Dish Network - and even though I thought it looked great then - it's even better now! The...

    DISH Retention Department

    Well, I finally got exhausted of seeing the same 866 # on my Caller ID every two hours for the past week and answered it last night - even though it was almost 9pm. It was DISH Network's retention department calling me since I dropped service last Tuesday. -- First off, they don't even...

    My FIOS TV vs. DISH Compare

    Well, after being a DISH customer since March of 06' - FIOS TV just rolled out in my area, and I was installed on Thursday with an HD-DVR and an HD box - just as I had with DISH (622 & 211). After a few days of missing channels (was a local issue in my area - I was one of the 1st out of my CO)...

    ESPN HD & ESPN2 HD Quality - Today's Bowl games

    Okay- The big Penn State game on now looks pretty nice on ESPN-HD (10-10 halftime - go LIONS!) However, The Texas Tech b-ball game on ESPN2-HD looks like sh*t. Fuzzy whenever a player runs to the basket - blurry - you can really tell how much less bandwidth 2 is getting. I'm anxious to...

    The Mystery of 61.5 TP's 20 and 22 is Solved

    Well, I must now happily post about my tech visit this morning. Previously, off of 61.5 - I received signal levels in the low 90's for the majority of the TP's, except for TP 20 and 22, where I saw levels of around 70 and 75, respectively. Not a death wish, but the channels on these two (Food...

    August - the Month of new HD?????

    Well, August is now here - DISH apparently has to add Food HD by 8/30 - and we'll now see if any other goodies are on the menu. Comcast rolled out MHD today in a broad area of the Northeast - so that's definitely one on my (and other's) lists. Hopefully DISH can wrap up a MHD/Logo...

    DISH Games

    Has anyone attempted to use the new "DISH Games" feature on DISH Home? It is shown as "not available" on both my 622 and 211 receivers. Is this only available to certain models?

    MHD - Comcast beat us!

    In a story worthy of the "wow" column, Comcast actually beat DISH in adding a new HD channel, as apparently they've come to an agreement on MHD and have added it to systems in New England. I know based on all of the discussions that it may be in our future as well, but i'm surprised Comcast...
