    The Dish technical chat is Monday, 21 Feb. Any ideas what they might talk about? I suspect we will hear about the 942. I also wonder if they will address name based recording on the 5XX series. :grin:

    By the way, our chat room will be open during the tech chat so please join us.

    I hope we will see something on the new receivers that DISH plans on introducung this year. I also would like to hear what DISH plans on doing with the uplink center and satellite that they are buying from CableVision.

    I hope that they don't have any guest like they are having on every Charlie Chat. The guests take away a lot of time that, I feel, could be better used to answer customer questions (call-in and e-mail).

    The whole direction that the Tech Forums and Charlie Chats are taking lately (less customer e-mail and call-in time) is starting to make the chats a waste of time for a lot of customers. They need to go back to a more "customer involved" format like they had a few years ago.

    Chris, you may want to post the event time and time zone the event is being aired so newcomers can find it easier.

    I just read that the Tech Chat has been postponed until the 21st so I've removed the announcement from the front page.

    As we get closer to chat day, I will post the time and channel at the top of the forums.

    Advanced technical questions, such as selecting a program to record.

    This explains why my Dish EPG on my 522 had "Dish Network FYI" listed instead as of "Technical Chat". I even had the DVR set to record the show, but now I can just make the changes when the EPG is showing for the 21st.

    I wonder if they are delaying to get NBR up on the 510/50x series. :D
    Or is it so they have another week to figure out Rainbow1? :D

    Better be careful, or this could be the "March" Tech Chat.

    It used to be. But honoring two great presidents was dropped when they decided to honor someone else. :(

    They've cancelled the Tech Chat altogether before to another two or three months later (or delay they said) replacing it with a regular Consumer Chat for that month.

    What are the compelling technical reasons that CSTV, YES Network, and Oxygen have not been added yet? :)

    Ah Darkman....Your sense of humor almost went unnoticed. April Fools Day is a perfect day for CSTV, you think? ;)

    BTW you haven't change your avatar in a while. :D

    LOL

    Too lazy for the "avatar game" lately... Also, finally working again :((((((( (even though, i guess, it's not such a bad news, and it's life :))))))

    As to " CSTV - it's not April 1st yet ;) " - this particular time, i wasn't joking actually (even though, joke a lot, of course)
    This particular time i was directly replying to the post that was one above mine... this post:
    As the above question surely applied to "YES" (maybe) and "Oxygen" (for sure), the CSTV was clearly indicated to arrive April 1st ( and actually "NO later then April 1st" :) ) ... making it official, i would think....

    When i DO joke about April 1st date ( which i, admit, i did on several occasions ;) ), i would use a bit different language...
    I would use something like "coming April's Fools Day" (instead of "coming April 1st") :D

    Some day I'll have to follow through on my CGI avatar idea. A different avatar every time from a pool?

    But I do like my current one. Maybe some day I'll get to use that satellite. :D
    (And my old one is still on SatGuys ... the little racoon lurking in my yard.)
