What do you need to view DISH’s 3D content?

3D Television

3D on DISH works with modern 3D HDTVs. Some older 3D TVs may require additional hardware in order to view today’s 3D content, so be sure to ask the TV manufacturer.

3D Glasses

Depending on the 3D HDTV manufacturer, the glasses may have to be purchased separately from the TV. Consider purchasing more than one pair so that everyone in your home can enjoy the 3D experience.

3D Cables

DISH Superior Customer Service

February 20th, 2013

In this day and age it can be hard to find customer service that’s actually there to serve the customers. You want a company that allows you to talk to a person when you need to talk to them, not only during very specific hours and for only certain things. You want a company that cares about their customers and puts their satisfaction first. A company that will help you resolve your technical issues and answer questions about your bill, when ever those issues and questions may arise.

DISH Network is one of the only television providers that offer 24/7 customer and technical support. Whenever you need us, we’re here to take your call and help you. DIRECTV, AT&T U-verse and Verizon FiOS don’t offer that. If you don’t want to talk on the phone, you can also chat with customer support representatives online and even look at DISH’s extensive self help pages to find your answer.

According to the 2012 American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), DISH beats DIRECTV and the nation’s largest cable providers in Customer Satisfaction, Value and Customer Loyalty. DISH offers the best customer service for the best products in the industry.

External Hard Drive FAQs

February 11th, 2013

We’ve gotten a lot of feedback on our post about connecting an external hard drive to your DISH Network receiver. We’ve seen some great questions brought up in the comments and thought it’d be great to share them with everyone.

External Hard Drive FAQs

Do I need to leave my external hard drive powered on all the time when connected to my Dish DVR, or can I power it on only when I want to use it?
It does not need to be powered on at all times; however, it can take a few minutes to load the contents when it is first turned on.

I currently have a 622 receiver with an external hard drive. Would I be able to move the external hard drive to a 922 and not lose my recordings?
As long as both receivers are activated to the same account.

I’ve connected my external hard drive, but my receiver is giving me error message 860: “There is no multimedia device connected to the USB port”.
If you’ve had your external hard drive connected before the error message appeared, trying shutting the EHD down, unplugging, then performing a hard reset on your receiver. Once your receiver has powered on again, turn your hard drive back on and once fully on connect to the USB port again. If it’s still not being recognized it’s best to call DISH Tech Support at 800-333-3474 to troubleshoot your receiver.

If you are seeing this error message after the first time you connect your external hard drive, be sure to review the criteria and ensure your external hard drive meets them.

I’ve formatted and installed the software to use my external hard drive with my DISH receiver, but now I’d like to reformat it and use it with my computer.
Plugging the EHD into your computer should prompt for the EHD to be reformatted. If this isn’t happening it’s best to contact your EHD manufacturer for directions on how to format the EHD another way.

The USB port on the back of my 722 is reporting USB failure, and when I plug my external hard drive into the USB port on the front it’s not recognized. What can I do to recover my recordings?
To help with USB failure it’s best to call DISH Tech Support at 800-333-3474 to troubleshoot the issue. If they cannot resolve the USB issues so you can continue to use your external hard drive they will most likely replace your receiver. In that event you will be able to use your EHD with your new receiver. Just be sure not to try to connect the EHD to any other devices, such as your computer, as this will prompt a reformat.

Why does the external hard drive have to have its own power supply?
The EHD must have its own power supply because the USB ports on the DISH Network receivers do not provide power which is necessary for an EHD to read and write.

If you have any more questions about external hard drives and their use with DISH Network receivers, feel free to leave a comment and we’ll answer as soon as possible!

Return of ‘The Walking Dead’

February 8th, 2013

The Walking Dead‘s midseason cliffhanger had many fans frustrated and hungry for more. Well the wait is over and one of AMC’s most popular shows is returning on Sunday with an all new showrunner. Now in its third season Walking Dead is also now moving onto its third showrunner. Originally created for TV (and based on the graphic novels of the same name) by Frank Darabont, Darabont was showrunner until 2011 when Glen Mazzara took over. Mazzara stepped down earlier in the year due to creative differences with AMC and now Scott M. Gimple will be taking up the position starting in season four.

When last we saw the gang the group’s numbers had seriously dwindled and Rick’s leadership was waivering. Now facing their greatest foe yet, the Governor played by British actor David Morrissey, Rick must pull himself and the group back together if they are going to survive. And how will Daryl and Merle fare against the Governor and Woodbury’s wrath? Will his rage open Andrea’s eyes?

The Walking Dead will be airing on AMC at 9/8c this Sunday, February 10th. Will you be watching?
