Hey, i just found the forum. Im new to dish tv, but im also becoming a pro. I'm a DNS technician and have been doing it for a year now. i know the ins and outs of the everyday lnbf's and recievers but looking for more ditealed info on how the stuff works. (such as how big is the 622 HD? it doesn't say a thing about it in the manual. and also what does the ethernet port do on the 622 and lastly, when will it be 1080p?)

i hope these forums are helpful and i hope i can contribute

Dish Network vs DirecTV

I currently have the following from Dish Network: Dish 211 HD receiver, Dish 1000 Receiver, and 2 Dish 4900 receivers. One 4900 receiver provides a signal for two tv's and the other 4900 receiver provides a signal for two other tv's and tv picture on one computer.

I have been a Dish Network customer since January 1998.

I would like to get into recording the shows similar to Tivo, and have seen the low prices for the receivers from DirecTV offered to new customers.

I subscribe to all the channels from Dish Network, all locals, and all the HD channels. I do not subscribe to any of the Premium movie channels.

Can anyone advise on whether I should switch from Dish Network to DirecTV, or should I stay with Dish Network?

Welcome from Ohio

Found this site from the Motley Fool boards. I am in the process of a basement remodel. I am ready to purchase not only a satelite system (i'm sick of cable), but a couple of HDTV's. This looks like a great site to learn about both of these topics.

Hi everyone! I found this site while hunting for info about adding Ku to my BUD. I'm pretty clueless, but not willing to give up and go to the mini dish. It looks like there's a lot of information here so I hope y'all can help.

Hello-this is my first post. I check the forums all the time for Dish 622 stuff, especially recently when some "Bugs" appeared (reboots, etc.). So far it's nothing like the old 7200 Dishplayer woes. You guys are a big help.

Hi, this is my first post. I surfed in here a few times looking for DISHNetwork info and decided to join. I've been a Dish subscriber for 10 years, reasonably satisfied, but occasional issues like any service. There is no cable where I live and poor OTA. I have enjoyed the site so far and thanks for all the helpful info.
