Someone gave me this receiver model 3700, is it still able to be activated?
yes, it become 3900 as many FW of different models united in less lines ... you will need G3 card (yellow) if it not
Call them or better yet chat with Dish online...pretty sure they won't activate any legacy equipment anymore. Just give them the R00.
If it can be activated, it won't be for much longer. Almost certainly not worth the purchase of a new card given what you can get for not too much more.
you can't legally purchase smart card; it's owning by nagrastar company; so the price you'll pay is for shipping or so
Forgedd about it's so old it's an antique. If you want another receiver you need at least a 311 on Western Arc or a 211 on Eastern Arc.
[SIZE=medium]We would be able to activate the 3700 receiver but as soon as we did it would say the Smartcard is not valid. Would you PM me with the phone number on the account to better answer your questions? [/SIZE]
wanna eat the crow ?
Read MikeH I think he agrees.
I'm holding the crow ! Quick !!
Being able to activate a receiver and actually wanting that receiver once it is activated are two different things.
I believe RBA was expressing his opinion that a 311 or 211 would be a better choice. Not saying that the 3700 could not be activated. And it may just be more trouble than it is worth.
Seems to me DIRT member has no problem to activate it. So, RBA categorized statement "Forgedd about it's so old it's an antique" is wrong. Hence I'm holding the crow !
Thank you for continually repeating the message that the 3700 isn't worth much anymore. As far as the CROW goes you are perfectly welcome to my share you seem to like it.
I think the crow has been beaten (and perhaps eaten) to death now... it would be better to return to the actual topic, if that hasn't already been answered sufficiently. Thanks!
time to close the thread
My take on this -
I had an old 4700./4900 that I had been using on a DishPro Plus Twin. When I fried the 2nd DPP convertor, I said uncle and had Dish swap it for a 311.
The only bad thing to that swap is that I had originally gotten that 4900 for the UHF remote -
The trouble with the 3700 is the processor is very slow. Normal tv watching is fine but if you want to use the guide to look what's coming up in the future, as I recall, it can only hold just a few hours of data, which means lots of downloading new data for every few hours you want to view.
