What's the secondary per month fee on the 922? I thought it was 19 but I don't know for sure.
Added the additional $4 for the 922 Sling service.
Hopefully quick question: Does DISH map all of their HD channels to the same SD channel, or do you have to tune to a separate HD channel in some cases? I was reviewing a DISH guide and it lists duplicates for several channels, but in some cases lists the SD channel on one number and the HD channel only on a separate number.
The core HD channels that are versions of SD channels should be mapped down to their SD channel numbers. The ones that don't have mapdowns are the Platinum HD channels and a few of the alternate sports channels.
What additional $4 for the 922 Sling service?
I'm not aware of an additional fee on the 922 for the Sling service. They already charge more for the 922 as a DVR on your account and more per receiver if you add a 2nd 922... I'm not aware of another $4 fee to use the Sling features that it comes with.
I suppose we can call the 922 a Sling DuoDVR again.
If I 'sling' to another TV, can I use the 922's DVR for both?
Yes. The 922 is an integrated DVR and Slingbox. I watch the DVR at work all the time.
WAIT I MEAN...
I guess I meant can I get HD on TV2, but then I still can't use the DVR for TV2 recording as I could with the agile mod. output (no HD of course).
So, the answer really is "NO"! I'm thinking of switching from D* to E* (back again), and as I understand it, D* lets you share share programs from multiple HD DVRs to multiple rooms, with HDTVs in each room, over Ethernet or their DECA network.
Whereas E* only shares one DVR between two TVs, and the second TV can only be SD.
Little change happened last month - using Sling Adapter you could get out of TV2 HD signal via Ethernet
Why is Miami florida on the western arc?
Because Dish didn't have a spotbeam on Eastern Arc for it at the time.
On my 222K receiver I found that I cannot manually select by keypad CNN SD (channel 200 SD) for example on TV 2 unless I lockout channel 200 HD in channel locks. The receiver will output the HD channel on tv 2 by default otherwise.
and...? standard behavior if there's an HD signal available is to default to that.
Seems like the TV2 receiver should have been designed to default to SD by design as HD pictures will not display properly on TV2. They are cropped on the sides. :scratch:
Or letterboxed ... your choice! The receiver remembers the last display aspect chosen for a HD channel and uses it again.
There are SD channels that are separately engineered to fit ... but many have become simple crops or letterboxing of their HD feed. About the only channels it makes a difference on are the ones that superstretch their SD feed for HD.
It has been that way since the first dual output HD receivers were introduced. I suppose it could be changed - but eight years later?
smithduluth - a simpler answer might be to create a channel list on TV2
True. I forgot about the lists.
One can also have a separate set of locked and hidden channels on TV2.
