I have a Dish 500 system, with an 811 and a 322. On the 322, I just noticed a channel 9950, labeled "RDRCT", that just displays text saying "You must have a second dish to view this channel. Dish Network will provide one free of any charges. Call..." The channel doesnt appear on the 811, though

What is the channel? :confused:

It is a channel that's suppossed to be used as a re-mapper for the channels that someone would need a second dish to see. The 322 for some reason shows this channel in the EPG

If you have a local channel that is on a wing (61.5 or 148), when you tune to the channel, it shows the "you need a second dish to see this channel". It is on 9950, but maps itself to whatever channel requires the 2nd dish (ch 22 in the Mpls area as an example)

If you are in the Greenville, SC DMA then you have 2 channels on 61.5.

You can call Dish and get a free upgrade.

Here is a list of additional channels you could get with the 61.5 dish.
