    Tonight, about an hour ago, 722 receiver went from showing programming to showing the 005 smartcard not authorized message on a local channel. Dishfyi channel works, dish home works, guide seems normal, the what's on dish and what's on dish 500 channels work, nothing else does. Bill is paid up, confirmed on web site.

    1-888-686-2388 listed on the contact us page, I talked to the automated system, when it's resend of programming failed, it tried to transfer me to a representative, and I was disconnected. Calling the same number again gets me quickly transferred to that disconnection.
    I tried on the website, to get to the tech chat that lets you talk to a rep in a chat box, every link that should take me to it, goes to the contact us page.
    I was able to get another number at the end of the ask dish/this did not solve my problem path, 1-888-300-4472 This number confirmed my home number, then puts me on an endless hold...28 minutes so far and waiting.

    Ok if the call centers are closed, say so in a message, and don't do something that results in service disconnection during the closed hours.

    and I did do the front panel reset, and the unplug reset, before even trying to call. Just gave up on the call, if it's not working in the morning, I'll have to call again, and will have some questions for them. I can deal with something going wrong and having to call in to have them fix it, but not this kind of "is the call center even open" situation.

    Same thing with me it seems. About 12:25AM, all channels. Getting the
    'SmartCard not authorized' msg. Tried 1-800-333-3474 (msg said 15 minute
    wait--no thanks, sounds widespread) and 888-686-2388 (busy first time,
    got thru 2nd time but dumped after 90 seconds). Tried the instructions
    noted on the CustService/Contact page for "If you are currently experiencing
    loss of programming or audio..."---Cycle Power and SmartCard re-load several
    times, no luck. See what turns up here, or what tomorrow brings

    my 501 has been acting flakey. bad hard disk message. it was stuck on that message during the kill signal or what dish network customer service says is a satellite problem. so that receiver is still working. at least thats my theory.

    add to the list of channels that are working are:
    213 nasa
    9421 hd theather

    My 625 is down but my 722 has service.

    Wonder if NASA had anything to do with out outage *Heh*

    Houston we have a problem, we just elbowed some satellites.

    Customer line keeps disconnecting me.
    Hotline says signal outage on local channels, well they better update that message.

    I'm also seeing the same 'SmartCard not authorized' scenario (625). Did the usual reset, unplug & reboot before coming here. Hopefully by morning it'll get sorted out...

    DISH Tech Chat says "not sure" when problem will be resolved. Also stated "hopefully it will be resolved by this afternoon". This can't be good. (6:30 a.m. Central)

    Phone numbers are now busy.

    Online chat tech support -
    You are currently at position number
    246 in the queue.
    All agents are currently busy. Please stand by.

    So, someone broke something.

    How the heck does channel 100 work if all the rest are broken?!?

    I just registered for this. I have 3 322 recievers, and the one in my living room is having the same problem. Tried resetting, unplugging but nada. At least I know others are having the same problem. Hope this is fixed soon.

    I have 722 in one room and it has a HBO channel that just came on #301 but when I change to HD 301 I get the Smart Card error. All other channels also get the error. I have another Receiver in the other room working fine though. I think Dish zapped pirate cards last night and the stream took out paid customers.
    Oh and calling Dish right now nothing works you get disconnected every time.
    I also heard billing is all messed up on client accounts. This sounds like someone messed around in the mainframe of the system.
