RE: Dish Network Arbitration

I was once on the winning side of a class action suit for MANY millions. I got a check for $1.25 and the lawyers got MILLIONS. Class actions are good for the lawyers .What is the definition of a million lawyers at the bottom of the ocean? A good start.

RE: Amazon Prime offers SOME offline viewing on some devices

I tried Prime for the free month. That video service is a joke. Even though there are 1,000's of titles, there was very little of interest to us. All the stuff like old HGTV and DIY episodes were still pay to view. After spending an hour to find something I wanted to watch, I was tired of watching TV. :) Just seemed like another catch to get you to spend.

RE: I regret purchasing a Winegard Trav'ler for Dish Network

Everything on 77 is just a SD duplicate of 72 HD channels unless your locals are there. I use the 2 head LNB at home and on my portable. I have one of those 72,61 LNB's but it would take a completely redesigned bracket around it. It also would not resolve the skew issue. The thought on modifying the standard 110,119,129 LNB was that I could manually go to 61 (which works) and then use the LNB head that is normally for 129 and modify that one for simulated skew and correct spacing.

RE: I regret purchasing a Winegard Trav'ler for Dish Network

The existing LNBs are close enough to EA spacing that I wonder if I could get power to the skew motor and set it manually? There must be two wires in the control box cable that control it.You work on the control box and I'll work on the LNB.:) I would never buy another Travler for Dish to use on the east coast. It worked very well for me with Direc though.

RE: I regret purchasing a Winegard Trav'ler for Dish Network

ljr- The problem is the skew. If you are on much of the east coast there is only a few degrees. By using the previously mentioned method of turning off power during the 72 manual search, I am able to get 61 and 72 of the EA by loosening the LNB screws and twisting the left side of the LNB up a few degrees and nylon tieing it. Have someone watch the signal meter then run the switch test.The manual mode searches with the center LNB head. It defeats the purpose of the intended 1 button setup but is a work around if you will be at a site for a while. There is nothing on 77 at this point that I understand. We used to use this staggered LNB setup years ago for getting 101 and 91 on the same dish.:) When I get time I am going to cut up an LNB head and put the proper spacing in it and some homemade skew. I think I can do it so it finds 61 and the offset LNB head will be on 72. Probably just easier and quicker to setup a portable.

RE: Dish Network Arbitration

They are not trying to take away anyone's rights. Do you work for Dish Network? Or are you a politician?

RE: Jayco Seneca vs. dynamax force

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXMJrRQ3SVkWhy would you even make a video about how fast you can knock out a product. Anyone should be able to figure out that a fast throw together time does not equal a good quality product. Jayco sure proved it by my unit also.

RE: I regret purchasing a Winegard Trav'ler for Dish Network

I have contacted them repeatedly about the lack of EA on the Trav'ler. What makes it even worse is the manual use of the antenna does not work either. So the average person can't even get 72º sat manually. I've had this discussion in other threads but for some strange reason, I can. That's another topic though.You must have gotten a defective unit. :)

RE: Dish Network Arbitration

Where is this underhanded or shady? By sending it in an email that 85% of the people ignore and by also knowing that 90% of those remaining 15% will not take the time and effort to print out a form and mail it in by certified mail to be sure they get it. It is extremely underhanded and deceitful. There has to be a reason they are trying to take away your rights.

RE: Dish Network Arbitration

I am not sure why I would want to sue them either, but their liars sure must know why, if they are trying to take our right away. And in a rather sneaky manner for my taste. They know 85% of the people don't read those types of notices. I can think of several reasons why Dish, Direct and any cable co. would be named in a class action. But I do agree that only the liars profit from a class action.

Dish Network Arbitration

Did anyone else see the new notice Dish sent their customers? If you don't fill out a form and send it to them (which they will likely lose)you give up your right to a jury trial and being part of a class action.

RE: Winegard Rayzar Automatic

Keep your crankup. If it is old and does not have the Wingman addon just get that. Save $400 and the worry of a poor installation. You could also get the Sensar IV head for about $47 on Amazon. 2pins and 1 coax to replace it.

RE: Jayco Seneca vs. dynamax force

As the owner of a Jayco C, I wouldn't buy one again...I would go better quality. You don't have a Jayco Seneca though, do you? That's their high end Super C, so I'm guessing (hoping) that the quality would be better.I have what was their model even above the Seneca,the Embark. I agree with him. The Jayco quality is terrible. It seems their main goal is to see how fast they can get them out the door. They let the dealer and the customer worry about fixing all the little things and finishing what the factory didn't have time to do. The parts they put into it are good but the "Amish craftsmen" doing the work fail miserably. But that said,at the Seneca price point, you don't really have many options.

RE: Verizon is doing away with contracts

So what I wonder is if we will be able to switch data plans up and down on a month to month basis, and if there will be any sort of change fee when a plan is switched or a device is added. According to a rep at the Verizon store yesterday, you will be able to change data plans monthly, no mention of a charge to do this.That is how the ATT plan works. The only catch is that you lose any rollover data when you switch plans. I go back and forth between the $30 no data but unlimited phone and the $45 1.5 GB data plan as needed.

RE: Hughes Satellite vs. Verizon MiFi

Not sure where the 2 posters above MrWizard are getting their info but the new Hughes Gen4 service is very dependable and has many, many happy customers. I got my info from personal experience. I called them to check on service for a lot I was looking to purchase that had no DSL or cable. The first slick talking, ready to get my billing info salesman hung up on me when I started to ask questions about speed and download limits. The 2nd one was another slick talker telling me anything I wanted to hear. Both people I asked that had it said they wished they could get anything else. I would bet it is more like they have many,many customers that have no other options.

RE: Hughes Satellite vs. Verizon MiFi

Proceed with extreme caution with Hughes. They will tell you anything to get your CC# to sell you equipment and service.

RE: Navigation nightmare

Even though MS Streets & Trips no longer updates their map file, It still works well for planning routes.Agreed. It is on your laptop and does not need an internet connection to plan a route like Google. It also can be used with a GPS dongle to provide guidance. The constant downloading of new maps is a sales pitch by the GPS makers. How many new roads are built that would cause you to get lost.
