    How is it 2 of 4 receivers state they are connected to the internet when they have not been for months? Also a while back it never stated the fact or fiction before.

    One of mine says, in the account screen, that it isn't connected when it is.

    I have had a receiver, active on the account, charged a non-return fee. I don't think that error comes up real often, but I have a client on DISH that had it happen too.

    Computers, people, it's a bad mix, LOL!

    If it was connected in the past and gave a broadband callback, it will say it's connected, even if that was over a year ago.

    I've noticed that the receiver itself seems to know about the internet. My R22 has never been connected to the internet and one day I pushed some remote key that caused a blue pop-up onscreen that said just this! The internet settings are still the same as when I got the receiver and have never been changed.

    That would be the dash (-) key
