    No. On boot up it will look it will look for the satellite.

    You need GenieGo.

    And this was just discussed last week.

    Oh, for heaven's sakes: it's a reasonable question, and the answer is it varies widely by model and by software version. And personal experiences within model and software.

    Best thing to do is disconnect it from the dish, then unplug it and the next morning see what you can see.

    Plus the previous board software would check for similar threads when you went to create a new thread. Rookie mistake? Yes. But the TS joined yesterday and this was their first post.

    See post 7. Sorry we were all caught up in extraneous matters, so we all failed to welcome you to DBSTalk. Please don't be put off by this initial rudeness..... And, WELCOME!

    okay this seems like an unprofessional response from some of you guys.

    If you want to watch content out of home either GenieGo or Slingbox would work.
