So we recently got Dish for the 2nd time (I thought I could cut the cord, but the kids wanted Nick)...
Anyway, we had very high winds in Chicago area today.
I come home, dish shows complete signal loss. I used to install these things in late 1990s, so I started troubleshooting. Sat input 2 on my 722 shows complete signal loss. Input 2 - Reception Verified.
I swapped Dish separator, since I had a spare - same issue.
I get on dish chat. I describe the problem exactly to the point.
After 30 minutes, he's asking me if my TV is on and if I have an amplifier.
At this point I didn't want to waste another 30 minutes.... It's friday night and I have kids.
Then he asked if I can press "TV VCR" button on my remote. Yeah, VCR button.
At this point I didn't want to waste another 30 minutes.... It's friday night and I don't want to explain to some tech guy that VCR buttons are long gone.
The dish tech support is pathetic. If I didn't have a commitment with them, I'd be gone today.
Sorry for the vent.
