    I have a dish Walley and a Playmaker antenna for my RV and am trying to get it to work. I paid $90 for the first month of service of which I lost $75 due to trees in the campground before I learned that I could "disconnect my receiver". I had previously been told that I could not pause my service but he never mentioned "disconnect. At that time a asked if I could access a preview channel before reactivating and tech support said yes I could. Fast forward 5 weeks and no trees are blocking my view. I set up the antenna and got ch 110 and 119 but could not access ch 103. Called dish and asked for tech support but since my receiver is disconnected, I could not talk to Tech support. So they want $75 for me to see if my system works.

    Should I be able to receive ch 103. I really do not spend another $75 to find out if my system does not work.

    You should be able to activate the Welcome Pack for about $25.

    I think the only channel you can get is Dish 101 since it's Free to air.

    Apparently he is saying that the test channels show no content other than a slate identifying the satellite.
    The one I get (9582 from 61.5) only shows a white DISH logo on a black background. No on screen indication of the satellite (although the orbital position is noted in the EPG).

    The test channels show a processed channel proving receiver is working and the satellite you are receiving. Adult guard give some promo.

    Now that DISH also changed the slate for 9582 D61.5, and the CD 21 Plaza audio feed got removed. Note that 61.5° TP 14 was still in QPSK.

    One of my previous receivers kept losing its enable from Dish and I would call Dish to hit it again. However when not enabled I could view a bunch of channels that Dish was forced to carry for free.

    it's depend on status the smart card's records … if there old/expired permissions, generic permissions, etc;
    the card could be shiny new - no records, so it will allow to view one-two channels;

    how long is your list of free channels ? what channels are there ?

    I expect a difference between the channels one would receive on a deactivated receiver and a virgin receiver, but I would also not expect to be able to find a virgin receiver (one that had never seen a satellite signal) unless purchased "new". On a deactivated receiver I'd expect all subscription channels to be turned off (regardless of if the channels are scrambled or not on the actual satellite feeds). Channels marked Free or Preview in the system would probably be available (although DISH changed the way they do previews a few years ago preferring to add channels to lower packages instead of turning on channels to every receiver - limiting previews to subscribers).

    The channels currently marked Free or Preview on the satellite feed follow. I would not expect to be able to receive them all on a virgin or deactivated receiver.

    if we will go into secret processing of executing viewing channels by STB, we should know how FW treat permissions with expired date vs totally missing permissions for FTA and temporary/promo channels … but we don't know that :(
