    Only for stations that may or could broadcast out information, or content rated PG and above.
    Crazy thread though, I use channel locks for my sub all the time. From Locking out SD versions of channels, as I use the map downs, to shopping channels, PPV's and all those REALLY DUMB NHL channels,and all the crazy religous channels, more of them than shopping channels. Still not sure how a channel about all the Dish Services out there is the end all or the beginning of the end.
    Between Friends and Family, we have over 20+ units, both SD and HD. Nobody has been forced to watch it, no one has been forced to have the channel autotuned or anything, so it really isn't being forced.

    Its a FYI channel for users, and a Trouble shooting channel for Dish, for some signal problems. Remember on the total amount of Dish users out there, this site is a VERY small portion, more users will get a benefit of the basics after a install with Channel 101.

    Sure... the "exchange" of opinion is exactly what is going on in this thread.

    If I post a thread, I assume not everyone will agree with my position. IF I knew everyone would agree, then the thread would just be my post + dozens of "I agree" and "you da man"... and there'd be no point.

    It's hard to argue that the OP's opinion isn't valid without also agreeing counter-opinions aren't also valid.

    In fact, all I really asked/suggested was that I didn't see this as being the end of the world as some would believe. I view the suggestion to use the Favorites list too as being helpful as a workaround to the OP.

    He might be referring to the fact that many tiimes after you have the reciever of for awhlie and turn it back on you get ch.101.

    I have had my 622 for 2+ years and a 211 for 1+ years and a second 211k for 1 month - NEVER had any of them autotune to 101.

    If this is all one can find to gripe about they are fortunate - GET OVER IT!!

    Unfortunately, any good intentions on your part got lost in the sarcasm.

    So can we get back to the topic of the thread and stop discussing the thread itself?

    Topic: "I can't lock out channel 101." Discuss. :)

    Maybe the thread should be renamed that as well. 101 being forced on me, leads to to many arguements, Can't lock out Channel 101 is a much better thread heading.

    Actually, I agree with that... and it's a good point. The thread title implies something that is not happening, and sidesteps what the OP's complaint actually was (i.e. he can't lockout channel 101 anymore).
