Dish -- older equipment -- what to do?
Posted 16 July 2005 - 01:57 PM
I understand that Dish has had some kind of card swapout and all of my equipment still has the original blue cards (and was never hacked). So, is any of this equipment still usable? There's no mention of it on the website but I'd think that at least the E6000 would still work. My old account if Dish keeps records back more than a year or two would only have the E2000's on it and at a different address. Should I just have them create a new account and transfer the E6000 on it (assuming it still works) or am I forced into getting a new HD receiver.
It appears that I'd be better off just dumping all of the old equipment, pretending that I've never subscribed to Dish, and sign up as a new subscriber. I could then get a new 811 with the Digital Home Plan and a 12 mo commitment. If I read the offer right, that's no installation or equipment charges. Any reason not to do that or would Dish's historical database still flag me as a returning customer even with a different address?
