Dish DVR deal

For you folks with a 722 Dish DVR there is an interesting thing that happens if you install the Over The Air adapter. Now you can record 3 shows at once, one over the air and one from each of the satellite tuners. Not bad for $30 (Ebay) I really did it because they don't support all of the sub channels on the satellite feed. I have a pretty simple antenna and it reports signal strength from 75 to 99 from stations about 25 miles away.

I had two of those receivers, actually it can record 4 things at once, 2 satellite and 2 oTA.
I dumped dish when they jacked the extra receiver fee from 7 bucks to 17 bucks and my boxs were owned

I wouldn't recommend Dish Network to my worst enemy.
My antenna gets me about 20 channels, and they dont cost me a cent.

I have had Comcast and Direct TV. Dish seems to be the cream of the crap. I really like the RF Out capability of the tuner. That gives you whole house coverage, 2 channels at a time from one receiver. I have 2 receivers one is DVR, so I have 4 satellite channels in every room plus my RTV on channel three and my PC on Channel 68, (with an agile modulator).
I don't really watch much network TV so just having the antenna won't work for me. I would miss the stuff that is only on cable/sat.
I am looking forward to the day that the whole "network" cabal gives way to direct distribution on the internet. I already have a PC connected to my TV and I am ready to go. I do watch HBO-Go, Hulu etc now but the possibilities are endless once content providers decide they don't need the networks and cable companies anymore.

I have two DVRs on my DISH installation in my "old" house. DISH has always been a PITA, so I switched to DirectTV in the new house. The DVR is far superior (DirectTV is fat better, also) and it'll run something like 5 remote TVs, each (HD model) accessing the DVR disk.

Probably 60% of what we watch is "cable".

Just what we need to do; strangle the Internet with video.

I used to think that too but the pipe seems to be able to handle everything we can throw at it. The future is going toward bandwidth and unthinkable amounts of it. Cable companies and telcos will be reduced to bandwidth providers. When everyone gets fiber to the home the sky will be the limit.. They may just be metering terabytes like they meter kilowatts and you buy content directly from the provider.
