    With the 2012 calendar year on the horizon, what are your wishes for the upcoming year---------as far as Dish Network is concerned?

    Personally, I'd like to see the return of GOL TV, as well as the additions of BBC World News, Sky News, Comcast Sportsnet Northwest to Dish Network.

    As well as adding the Big Ten Network to the A250 lineup as well as Euronews.

    And of course, the Pacific-12 Network.

    * When subscribing to PPV sports events, please have it enabled in all DVRs in my residence - NOT just on ONE of them.
    * Dishonline to work correctly.
    * Unlimited store exchanges even for BBMP
    * More movies (decent) for online streaming
    * Give more functionality when watching through sling - like see recorded DVR programs through sling. I don't think it is possible now.

    Move all sports programming to an upper tier and allow anyone that wants it to pay for it.

    I thought if you order a PPV from your remote on the receiver, then you could go to another receiver on the account and order it again and Bly be charged once. Ordering online or via phone does not work this way, but a receiver connected to phone or Internet should.

    I watch DVR recordings via Sling all the time already.

    I ordered World Cup cricket and I was thoroughly screwed as it was authorized on ONLY ONE receiver. I talked to DN many times, they would not do it. Even though it was supposed to non-refundable they were ready to give my money back BEFORE the event started.

    There are certain other PPV events as well which apparently suffer the same fate.

    Not sure what I am doing wrong (does browser matter) but through online sling remote DVR button is disabled.

    Cricket is one exception to the rule of being able to order with your remote from any receiver on your account and only being charge the one time for that PPV event as long as the event number is the same.

    The only browser that isn't supported for DISH Online is Chrome. Are you getting an error message when you try to sling? Is your receiver showing ONLINE or OFFLINE when you are logged into your account? Usually when the receiver shows OFFLINE, you can't see any of the DVR events. Do you have the latest software version for your receiver?

    Please let me know. Thanks.

    How about something all of us can use and appreciate, a LIGHTED REMOTE. Directv has or had one. I loved it.

    I have the A250 for a long time now and have had BTN since its inception (a few years already).

    BTN is a RSN for you. The rest of the country has to have multi sports pack to receive it.
