Or just call DISH and request a service call..Cables have all been checked. I am already quite sure that it's on its way out and was hoping to just get a replacement but always have to go thru the 100 steps first. Haven't gotten enough gumption to switch them around, it's a pain in the rear to do so, entails moving furniture to get behind one and I really don't feel like it, then have it not work in the other room, have to put it back THEN get a replacement (hopefully) and hook that one up. Too many other things going on in life to spend an hour or two fiddling around. But, suppose it may have to come to that at some point.
I understand what you are saying, and I'm all for paying for a tech visit but not 95 dollars. As I said, I can buy a refurb on ebay for cheaper. The receivers are leased, when you lease a car, repairs are covered. Why not with electronics? Not trying to start an argument and I do not ever talk politics.
