    Scott - It's a small world!

    Scott - I work for a direct mail shop (junk mail), and one of our printers jammed, and the operator brought me a sample of the last letter printed. I looked at it, and it was for Scott Greczkowski in CT!! I don't know if you remember me, but I met you (and Prize Goddess) at Team Summit at The...

    DishComm Problems

    I have two 622's. When I try to set up DishComm, each reciver shows that it is "online", and green. If I try to add the other receiver, I get a warning: "Error in DishComm Setup". Any ideas on how to add the receiver? They are each plugged directly into a wall socket, no power strip. Tom in TX

    I got a call today from Dish, offering to upgrade one of my 942's ( I have one leased, one owned) for $199, with a $199 credit, for a "no-cost" upgrade. Is this the standard offer now? I haven't been keeping up with it too much lately. I told the person that I was not interested, because I...

    Stock Ticker

    Scott - it might be interesting to add Tivo's stock price to the "ticker", to see how the lawsuit affects the stock of Dish and Tivo. I don't know if that's something that can be aded easily, or not. Just thought it might be interesting! Tom in TX

    Future Terrorist Target - New Orleans?

    I was watching the coverage about how they need to fix the breaches in the levees, so they can begin pumping the city, then begin rebuilding. It may have been mentioned elsewhere, I don't know, but it seems like it may be futile. How easy will it be for terrorists to blow 3-4 holes along any...

    RG6 -vs- RG59 Question

    I had my 811 installed a few months ago, and had run a new RG6 cable (100 ft) from the dish to my attic, but it wasn't quite long enough to reach down the wall to the receiver. I ran an old RG59 the last 15 feet. I had forgot all about it until today! My question is, will I get any improvement...
