    You'll need to change this - LNBF (ALL dishes using LNBF, not a LNB) a) doesn't do 'lock' b) capacitors doesn't 'fail' c) drift - it's a frequency changes , not timing circuit.

    The drift is a term using to describe changes (deviation) of LOF (local oscillator's frequency) inside of the LNBF. Actually DP and DPP LNBFs has two LOFs.
    Post a screenshot(s) with the diagnostics and we will explain each number on it.

    Should you also add BB (Blockbuster) in the list of acronyms? That confused me at first.

    Hi, still crunching out some monthly fees before I make a commitment to HD.

    What are the advantages/disadvantages of buying as opposed to leasing a receiver?

    Ditto for the DVR. What fees are associated with leasing?

    Can I still use my old 301 (the one that I am currently using) on one of my older Non HDTV sets when I sign up for HD?

    Thanks for any help,

    Second question needs an edit. It says "whole-hole DVR".

    The only 'advantage' to buying over leasing is that you're not in a contract. The cost is the same regardless.

    Using your 301 depends on whether or not you're in an Eastern Arc market; the 301 would be upgraded if you are.

    If the 922 is the primary or only receiver on a Dish account, there is a $6/month account level DVR fee, and a $10/month DVR fee for the 922, effective 1Aug12.

    Thanks for asking!

    Upgraded to a 722 and 211 and have an old 2800 receiver to dispose of. Is it ok to leave it with my trash collection & leave the smart card in it?

    if you changing TVs (am I right ?), then no difference; all hoppers/joeys are capable deliver HD to your TV (if you subscribed to HD channels).

    Yes a DP34 can work with a 1000.2 dish but you would lose 1 output. 1000.2 uses DPP technology and would allow connecting 3 dual tuner receivers. The DP34 takes the dish backwards one generation of product and requires 2 cables to each dual tuner so it can support only 2 receivers. Why don't you go back to the DISH forum and ask what you really want to do?
