    on your own

    glad to hear your equipment lasted 8 years. i live in the desert where tempatures are routinely in the 100-110 area. apparently that is very hard on the switches. how did you get the free upgrade?

    • I found the Good News and you can help yourself if you want to. Your description of events didn't say much regarding diagnosis. I doubt it's a switch problem.

      I wonder if you know what kind of equipment you have or the foggiest notion of how it works or goes together. From the homepage, click on Site Search. You can find descriptions and diagrams for the different types of installations and equipment.

      Who installed your second receiver? It's rare that you would have a second line pre-installed so I wonder if you did it yourself without knowing what you were doing. If Dish or a retailer did it you should get a FREE return call as part of warranty for work done.

      Your best defense against getting ripped off is knowing how to do it yourself. Now you have the info online if you care to read and learn.

      This is part of technical info;

      I tried searching for Dish Up. The closest thing I could find was the Dish 500 upgrade. Good luck with the fine print aspects of it. It could be a $50 solution to your problem since someone will have to come out and change the antenna and point it and the LNBFs (if supplied) should be newer models that don't require external switches.

      Did you learn how to read the agreements instead of relying on 'what someone said/promised'? Read before you sign.

      Happy Dishing!
