Hello and welcome to SatelliteGuys.US the only forum authorized by Dish Network to watch and post items of interest to the consumers from the Retailer Chat!

As always we will only be posting items of interest to you the consumers. Items dealing with sensitive dealer issues will not be discussed.

If you are a retailer and wish to discuss these dealler issues please visit our sister site at http://www.dishretailer.com

The show is just starting, stay tuned this page will be updated whenever news of interest is given. :)

Looks like no new channel announcements are coming in this show.

No word on ramping up supply of Dish Network equipment, which is scarce.
 
Great News, The Dish Network TV's will work with ALL HD inputs (even if they they are non Dish Network sources!) This is a change as of today. Looks like the monitors will not longer have the DVI restriction

what does that mean exactly??
 
CBS HDTV will remain on the wings.
 
As announced last month they are adding Dealer Information to the SySinfo screen on new accounts, this way if you press sysinfo you can get the number for your retailer who installed your system.
 
I heard from a Dish tech person that CBS-HD would be moving off of 61.5 but they didn't have a date.
Can someone confirm if it is staying or going? I am planning on having a second dish put up this weekend just for that one channel.
It is very misleading to quote that all HD is moving off of the wings if CBS-HD will be staying.
 
You guys are gonna love this...

New Feature added to the Customer Support application which lets you sign up for CREDIT CARD AUTO PAY via your setup. :)
 
OpenTV for the 522 and 721 will be made available in the next 2 weeks
 
They are now showing the new "Who let the pigs in" commercials.
 
Now they are taking questions. First one up is a question is how do I get my locals using a 811. (Dumb question) :)
