Dish has been deliberately making the guides default to My Channels in their receivers for a while now, I guess it took a while to make it to the 622.Translation?
If you are saying that's a "feature" of that firmware, perhaps it's yet another bug Dish created when they tried fixing other issues. They are real good at doing stuff like that.
Jim5506 said:I have all the channels I don't subscribe to locked out and hidden on all my receivers (4), so All Channels is the best choice for me.
He locked out all current channels that he does not subscribe to and does not want.Isn't that the same as it defaulting to "My Channels"?
He locked out all current channels that he does not subscribe to and does not want.
Then if the Guide is on "All Channels", if Dish adds a new channel to the system (such as the much requested "Fearnet HD"), then it would be the only Red or Green channel in the Guide, easily noticed, so that he can decide if he wants to add the package.
If the Guide is on "My Channels", then he will only see a new channel IF Dish adds it to the package that he already has.
SO, it is actually better for Dish Network, if he uses "All Channels".
Actually Google does the same thing. They have done changes in Google Mail and Google News that have received tens of thousands of complaints, and refuse to allow the user to choose an option to continue to do it the old way. Those changes are very similar to the change in the Dish Guide.It's like Dish DVR's have become the iPhones of the DVR world, where the company that makes it thinks they know what you want better than you do.
