I was briefly writing because I had a small question. I tried to find the answer to this question for a few hours before I ventured out as my first post to write here. You all seem very knowledgeable in comparison to me, so I figured I would send up a flare and see if anyone responds.
I am currently a DishNetwork customer, and I recently bought a Plasma TV. However, to my dismay, the best connection that I can currently get to/from the receiver to the plasma is s-video. No HDMI, No Component.
So, I called up DishNetwork and asked them if I could get an upgraded box. I didn't want the HD channels, I just wanted to be able to connect a HDMI cable between the TV and the receiver. No luck. They want lots extra money per month, as well as charging me up front for a new satellite (?), new receiver. I also don't want the HD channels, which I am required to have if I want the HDMI capable unit.
Then I began to look online at receivers on eBay ... and it seems that there are several write ups about "Do Not Buy Receivers on eBay"
Is there anything I can do to get a Dual DVR Receiver with HDMI, without paying a lot of money and feeling like I'm getting ripped off ?
Any insight you can give me would be very helpful.
