Hi all, new here and new Dish Network subscriber. My wife and I just moved into our new home and have selected Dish Network as our television provider. Initially, we started with a tube T.V., but two days later, we purchased a Samsung HD TV. I have several questions that I hope some fellow Dish subscribers can answer. 1. Should the receiver be turned off (all lights off) when the TV is off? I'm thinking the answer is no, since some DVRing will take place with the TV off. The reason I ask is that, when I turn off the TV using the Dish remote control, the Dish also turns off (all lights turn off). In other words, as it is currently set up, my receiver is never on (lights on) unless the TV is on. If, in fact, this is the incorrect setup, how do I fix it? 2. Building on my first question, when I turn on the TV (and consequently, my receiver), there is about a 15-20 second delay where the Dish logo is on the screen. Apparently, it is loading whatever it needs to load -- but I can't recall this being the same when we used the tube TV (although that was just for a 24-hour span, and I very easily could be relying on my poor memory). If this shouldn't be happening, does the solution fall within the answer to my first question? 3. Lastly, it seems once per day I am unable to go directly to viewing shows without first updating the channel guide, which takes five minutes, or canceling the channel guide update, which leaves the guide filled with "no information" for the tv lineups for each channel. Again, is this a result of question one? If not, is there any work-around? It seems all of these questions are linked and would be easily solved by leaving my receiver on. But, with zero experience with a Dish, I really don't know if this is accurate and, if so, how I would go about leaving it on. Any help would be much appreciated!
