I have no idea how the D tag ever got on my account in the first place, since I never specifically requested it. Seemingly, it's a glitch that just automatically happens, and has to be undone each time I reactivate a Hopper if I don't want the D. Keep in mind that this same glitch also removes DVR functionality from a Wally on the account, not just the Hoppers. That sitch ticked me off the first time I stumbled upon this, since I had paid the $40 fee specifically to have DVR functions on the Wally. I posted a whole thread on this issue and everything.I'm also using RV account..2 hoppers w/sling $15 DVR service fee and $5 for second receiver... now I also have a vip222k that's $10..a vip211k that's $5 and a Wally that's $5.. now if I shutoff the hoppers and use just the 222k there's no fee..I can add the 211k or Wally to the 222k and it's $5 fee each but if I add more than one additional receiver along with the 222k the fee for the 222k applies and it's $10 for just that receiver.. Like Crodrules said theres a lot of variables..In my case without the hoppers active my first receiver has no fees regardless of which one..
Crodrules... I tried to get my hoppers w/sling to get the d but they wouldn't deactivate the dvr function for me..I just want the sling function for dish anywhere on 2 devices at once..
Yes that was the number I called.. commercial dept.. really nice guy and understood what I was wanting to do..He told me that once the hopper had been activated that he couldn't change it to the D account..I guess that I should have called him before adding the receiver to my account using dish chat..I think you're right that somehow your account was tagged as commercial from the start.. come to think about it maybe that's why you seem to be able to get some different packages that others claim they can't get..lolTvland1, I gave you that special phone number, and a link to the thread where I detailed this whole experience, in a private conversation recently. Is that the number you called when you asked for the D to be put on your account?
The weird part about the "commercial" theory though, is that according to Unpluggedtech (the member who gave me the number for the commercial department) the model listed on the Diagnostics screen would also include "COMM" in it if that were the case. For example, it would be shown as a "Hopper 3 COMM D" instead of just "Hopper 3D." (Adding the "COMM" would also ruin my "3D" joke, of course.) There are commercial and non-commercial versions of most of these account codes, if not all of them. So, the lack of the "COMM" tag on my account would seem to rule out the "commercial" theory.Yes that was the number I called.. commercial dept.. really nice guy and understood what I was wanting to do..He told me that once the hopper had been activated that he couldn't change it to the D account..I guess that I should have called him before adding the receiver to my account using dish chat..I think you're right that somehow your account was tagged as commercial from the start..
