RE: Winegard SK1000 Satellite dish kapot afer 2.5 years

My SK1000 is obsolete and becoming more so. I wouldn't invest a dime in it. It doesn't fully support all the satellites or the newest Hopper. That would be quite a trick for the SK1000 to be able to acquire both DISH's Western and Eastern Arc sats. Even DISH's fixed tripod dishes can't do this w/o setting up two, separate dishes. Also, a standard SK1000 can be modified to support the new Hopper 3s. EA would require an LNB assembly replacement and new aiming code. The first is easy. The second probably would be too but Winegard won't do it. I'd heard there was a DIY DPH mod around but Winegard denied it. Thanks.Winegard told me there is no demand for EA. That is because they are not in the trees on the east coast.

RE: Go Anywhere Direct TV app

I was told the same thing by ATT. I told them that unless it goes to the DVR so I can skip the ENDLESS commercials, I was not interested.

RE: DirecTV Winegard Travler to DISH Conversion

You don't need 16 tuners but it is nice to not run into recording conflicts when adding a minute or two to each show to be sure the whole show records. The other 2 big things with Dish is Prime Time recording of all networks and the ease of getting locals changed when moving. The main problem with Dish and the Travl'r is the lack of EA. It can be an issue on the east coast. If you move to Dish you really should get the H3.

RE: NEW Super C

Congratulations! I was very disappointed with the DX3 also. It looked a lot more Forest River than Dynamax. I assumed that was what would happen to Dynamax after it was bought out. FR probably just wanted the name.

RE: Hopper 3 Locals Guide Problem

Problem solved. Someone on another forum posted an article about it. Unplug H3 for 1/2 hour after the service address change has taken place.

Hopper 3 Locals Guide Problem

I am having a problem after changing service location with a Hopper 3. The guide will only load for 1/2 hour on the locals except the NBC (3) local which shows many hours out but shows CBS shows. Our last location had CBS on 3. All the non locals channels display the guide properly. I called Dish and even though I got an English speaking rep that seemed to care, he was not able to resolve the problem. We tried every type reset, reauthorize, change local to another area. I had made this same locals change many times before with the old Hopper. Any suggestions? Thanx

RE: dvr or standard receiver?

DVR or nothing. With all shows now up to near 50% commercials, I refuse to pay the high price of satellite TV to watch endless commercials.

RE: Good Free Virus Scan For Older User

Thanx for all the replies. She is on XP. Tried to give her a Win 10 computer but she refused to use it. She is 90 and I told her never to buy anything on the computer. That was obviously forgotten. I have it setup with Team Viewer so I can fix all the problems remotely. As long as she can still turn it on. :) She thinks the monitor is the computer. It is a challenge but good to see her still on email and the internet at her age.

RE: RV GPS Recommendation

All in All I will keep my RVGPS, I use the RV760LTM and for AZ99 that is not a waste of money. LENIn your opinion it is not a waste of money. :)

Good Free Virus Scan For Older User

Is there a free virus scan with not as many or no popup scams like Avast has gone to? My elderly mother,with no computer knowledge, is a minimal PC internet user. I had Avast Free on her PC and told her to just ignore the popups. Well after a while she forgot and their deceptive scamming popups got her to buy a self renewing subscription for android. I caught it when it auto renewed recently only from seeing an email as the Avast on the PC was still on the Free version. Is there anything else out there that is not as deceptive with their attempts to lure unknowing people to purchase? Thanx

RE: RV GPS Recommendation

Don't waste your money on an RV specific GPS. Why do you say that have you actually tried one? Have you ever owned one?I have. I had the 760. It gives just as bad routing with misinformation as any other GPS. Paying a lot of $ for a super duper RV labeled GPS guarantees you nothing more than a thinner wallet. There are 100's of posts on here and other RV forums telling the Pros and Cons of the "special" RV units. My personal opinion is they are an overpriced waste of money.

RE: This may be the end of buying a new Windows 7 PC.

As an IT professional, I hate having to support Windows 7 until 2025, or further. It is so slow and cumbersome compared to Windows 8 and 10. As a tech-savvy user, I hate it every time I have to use win 8 or 10. They're both slower than 7, and 10 feels like its primary purpose is a storefront for microsoft.I'll second that. The auto update is the worst thing they have tried to stick up our butts EVER. The only thing 10 does better is start and stop quicker.

RE: Home HVAC Thermostat

Read the manual. Most "intelligent" thermostats say that they require 8 to 10 days to learn the characteristics of a heating/cooling system and will adjust the on/off cycles accordingly.Thanx for that. Unfortunately it is not a "intelligent" thermostat. Just an electronic. I have tried the previously recommended 3. I have also tried from 1 to 6. Still always runs too long and overheats. I may have to move up to the intelligent type learning model. For now I just put the antique back on. :)

RE: Home HVAC Thermostat

Switch the cycle rate to 3Why 3? Wouldn't that extend the run time of the burner with only being 3 cycles per hour or am I missing something? Thanx 1. You asked for help. The poster suggested 3. WHY argue with him. Try it and see what happens 2. WHY would you post this on an RV forum????????????????? DougWhat is your problem? I posted on this RV forum because there are many helpful professionals. An answer can usually be found for any problem. Not that your opinion matters to me but I was not arguing with his answer. I was simply asking why he suggested it. Unfortunately people like you can read your negativity into anything. If you have nothing better to do than stir ----, go post on TOBT.

Home HVAC Thermostat

I changed out my old Honeywell CT87 with the anticipator thermostat. I replaced it with an new Honeywell digital unit so we could add central AC later. The problem is that it now overshoots the set temp by 3-4ยบ. The burner runs far too long. Heating cycle rate is set for 5. I also tried 6 with the similar result.Switch on back is set to Gas/Oil. There is nothing I can find to do the function of the old anticipator. It is an oil hot air system that works perfectly otherwise and holds a very constant temp with the anticipator set at .4. Any suggestions? I called Honeywell India tech support. That was a disgrace. Thanx

RE: Winterizing house

I have noticed drywall cracks since we started shutting down completely. Still not worth spending $1,000 for heat.
