722 lost programming
Posted 20 July 2011 - 11:15 AM
My question is.....Why does Dish remove my programming after a long period of being unplugged? How do they know I was unconnected? I do not think the satellite knows if I am receiving or not so is the receiver programmed to require a re-hit after a long period of disuse?

Eventually, if left long enough... 30 days might be it, 2 months definitely crosses it... the receiver deactivates itself due to lack of connection to the satellites.
As you discovered, it requires calling in to have them re-activate again.
IF your power was out for 2 months... were you paying the whole bill? I hope you put the account on hold and weren't paying the whole bill during those 2 months when you weren't watching TV.

A "hit" does fix this though.

Thanks guys, it is always interesting to better understand how DISH is manipulating us ;-)
