    Dish Internet Response Team. They used to frequent these forums helping out with more complex situations through private message. Then they were reassigned for the most part to Facebook and other online venues.

    That much excitement could mean only one thing, one momentous thing: The return of the red recording in progress LED! VIP receiver. There, fixed. ;)

    My router turns itself upside down and walks around the house at night while we're all sleeping ;) [​IMG]

    I’ve always thought a router can’t have too many external antennas, but damn!

    Reminds me of fishing lures. Designed to catch fishermen more than fish.

    My router has 4 towers but they have blue colored lights, not red. That router you picture must really extend out wifi signal all over the entire neighborhood.:biggrin

    LOL I've never tested the signal strength but compared to my old router I do get enough signal everywhere and no device disconnects

    2 thumbs up to Caleb (DIRT team) for swapping my wired Joey to my Wireless Joey today (back to wireless for summer use), took just a few minutes which was much less stressful than having to call!

    Don't we really need 16 red LEDs, so we know how many recordings are in progress at any given time.
    This is especially important when there is an issue that may require a reboot.

    ...and special sunglasses to be able to see the picture on the TV over the flood of red light emitted by 16 LEDs at full blast. :D

    Nah. You just need a two digit red LED counter on the front of the H3 to display the number of recordings in progress.;)

    I'm not a fan of led lights. Went through the whole house and covered every single 1 with small strips of electrical tape.

    I feel the same way about blue lights. At least red lights won't screw up my sleep the way blue lights do.

    Not sure what BT has to do with blue LEDs, but I have used a fair amount of electrical tape to cover up blue LEDs throughout my house. I also tend to avoid products with them as well, when I can.
