    I renamed a couple OTA channels because Dish had them wrong. Is there a way to use lower case letters when entering the new names?

    It would be nice if Dish would implement an alternate set of lowercase characters you could toggle for the renaming.

    I once renamed a recording and didn't like that you couldn't choose what to capitalize and what not to capitalize.

    I hear ya.
    Dish does use lowercase letters, so it can be done. But just not by the user.

    Actually, if you scroll through the letters using the number keys, you'll get uppercase letters, then the digit, then lowercase letters. Seems like a lot of button-pushing, but it works.
