RE: DISH TV - Locals

May have to move from DirecTV to Dish. (Love being able to record 5 channels at once w/DTV) But want more than 1 receiver to record with what the Wally HD will only do. I see the Hopper 3 won't work with the Portable dishes only the Wally. I wont to be able to record many more channels at one like the eHopper 3 will do. Sure could get the Hopper 3 with a regular dish antenna. Like I do now with DTV. Wally HD just doesn't offer enough for me.

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

I see on another forum monacoers.org this also works on both LA spot beam and also NY spot beam if you declare a local service address in each area. I would rather get NY locals for earlier recording times. Shall see if all this goes away on June 1

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

No DNS. Location= 4 corners NM Not paying any extra for anything. https://photos.imageevent.com/2oldman/rvnetlinks/websize/dtv.JPG height=300 WOW Thanks for the screenshot I can't believe they are doing the LA spot beam all over the country. Any ideas why this is working for you? Did you have any trouble changing your service address to LA and did they want to come and set up a new dish? Did you just pick a generic address or do you have a property in LA? All most enlightening...

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

Do you get the LA feeds everywhere or just in the LA area? I get them everywhere, everywhere being NM, AZ, CA, UT. And is that without having DNS service? What shows up on your receiver the local station ID like KCBS or CBSwHD, etc. If you are seeing KCBS that should only spot beam to LA area. If CBSw then that is DNS service. It would help to know you current location. If you are in LA area do you see both KCBS and CBSw channels? And if not in CA what is shown? Are you paying $20 extra for what is called on the bill Network Packages? Just trying to understand...

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

I got fed up with this hoop-jumping and just switched my service address to Los Angeles, figuring that was the DNS service, and it turns out I was right. I don't care about literal 'locals', I just care about any network feed I can get. Do you get the LA feeds everywhere or just in the LA area?

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

Off-topic but I got a chuckle when I got an email from DirecTV that said they were going to give me NFL Sunday Ticket for FREE. Ya like there is going to be live football on this fall. And I don't even care to watch the NFL.

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

Has anyone called them to ask if they are going to make it easier to switch local channels via zip code? There is a phone number in the email to call with questions. OK I called and asked if they were going to make it easier to change to local channels when traveling. He understood and said that was a good question. I explained they know how many people have this service and that they will move to Dish if they don't do something so we can just call to change service. He took lots of time researching and came back with I would have to put in a move order to move my service address. I told him in the past I have been able to call with a new zip and it was changed. I asked if there was a special dept I should ask for when calling in? Didn't know of any. Told him he should take this up the line with employee suggestion so as to save thousands of customers. We'll see. Has anyone had success calling in to change local channels in the past?

RE: Help finding fresh date Tires

I had mich. 22’s and just went to Toyos. Just a fraction diff n size, much less $ and rode as good as Mich. Date is close to manuf date. Heck, when I got my bus, the orig tires were already 6 months old. Hard to get close to manuf date, but my Toyo dealer did great. $2600, 6 tires, mount, balanced, and out the door. I went in w cash and negotiated, and got a deal $500 less than Michelin’s. I had my orig tires 6.5 years, started sidewall cracking and 22,000 miles. Cash is king. And again, look at Toyos. A pleasant surprise. I just got this week 6 Toyos 255 70R 22.5 M122 Load H tires in the Tucson area Out The Door for $2499 at a well respected local tire dealer for my 05 Monaco Cayman 36 PDQ DP.

RE: New Source of TV While on the Road

The big advantage is that watching TV this way uses NO data on my phone plan, therefore no additional cost. Aren't you still downloading DTV content over the cell internet, thus using your data?

RE: Got a Amazon fire TV stick

Sure can watch directly but need Wi-Fi and may not have cell service in Canada or Alaska so then can play (mirror to the TV via the fireTV stick connected to it) the downloaded ahead of time videos. A little more info on downloading videos from Netflix and Amazon. On Netflix, you can watch videos live on a browser at www.netflix.com but you can't download. Must use a smartphone app or install the Netflix PC app from the Microsoft Store. Now on Amazon, you can only download to a smartphone, not to a PC. I don't use Apple stuff so don't know what works on them.

Got a Amazon fire TV stick

I got an Amazon fireTV stick and love it as I can now download Netflix and Amazon videos to my Samsung S10 phone and then mirror them to my TV via the fire stick. (using the "smart view" setting on the smartphone)(I also put in a 256 GB SD card so I can have lots of movies ready to watch) It is the HD 1080p model. It worked so well thought I would get the 4K model (has a few more features) for my main HD TV and use the HD TV stick in my MH. The 4K model sez will still work on a non 4K TV. Well guess what got the 4K model and it does most things but doesn't mirror from my S10 using "smart view" to the TV via the 4K fire stick. Did a search and found they took that option out when they came out with the 4K model. There are some third-party mirroring apps but couldn't get one to work. Sending it back and getting another 1080p HD model. Buyer beware. I did all this as I am going through Canada and Alaska and cell service may be limited. I know we should be into nature and not TV but may have some rainy days.

RE: LTVA "storage"

We are in northern Montana at the Fresno Res. on Rte 2 on BLM land high up over the Res. and all around were campers that looked they had been there forever. Later a game warden stopped by and we asked him what the deal was, He said the BLM office is so far away they never get out here so the locals know they can just leave their units without any hassles. We got the last decent spot. https://fulltime.hitchitch.com/2016-08-18%2016_49_28-Picasa%203.jpg height=300 width=500

Class A metal roof sealant

I have a Monaco Class A with a metal roof and the sealant is starting to check. Wonder if this is what I should use to reseal it. See pics. Not the whole roof just over the seams. https://www.hitchitch.com/roof1.jpg height=300 width=400 https://www.hitchitch.com/roof2.jpg height=300 width=400 https://www.hitchitch.com/dicor.jpg height=300 width=400

Cell service in Canada

We have Verizon and they talk about turning on TravelPass for $5 a day only charged when actually using your phone when in Canada. Is this what most use or are there other options?

RE: Where do you find water

I have stopped at rural fire departments and asked if I could get water.

RE: Quartzsite LTVA

Read online the BLM sez they haven't received LTVA stickers yet. So just go in and stay and go back to the entrance stations later when they can check you in. Desert Messenger Yesterday at 1:19 PM · La Posa BLM LTVA area is open for camping. However the permit stickers have not arrived, so entrance stations are closed. Yuma Field office states campers are welcome to camp for free until the stations open. When the flag is raised, the entrance station is open! https://www.blm.gov/office/yuma-field-office https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=Desert%20Messenger&epa=SEARCH_BOX
