Is there anywhere I can get a replacement battery cover for the 508's remote? The little clip on mine broke tonight.

You could possibly get one directly from DISH they did make battery covers for older remotes but a dealer had to order so many it was cost prohibitive for a dealer to buy them. You might find someone on the forums that has a bad remote who will sell you the battery cover.

I don't know anything about this site, but they have remote door replacements:

I had the same thing happen to me so I called Dish to ask for a new cover (I have Premium Warranty coverage). Much to my surprise, they sent me a new remote instead - no charge.

Thanks.

I called dish and they said it was no problem sending me a replacement cover. I don't have any receivers under warranty and don't sub to the warranty plan. Guess they see it as keeping a customer happy for the few cents a battery cover costs them.
