Both web apps can be accessed from the Dish Network site after logging in. They seem to provide the same features. Both allow you to schedule recordings on your DVR Dish Remote Access opens in the same window and shows a sling logo in the top right corner. It shows a programming grid with all your channels. It also shows current and scheduled recordings. Dish Online opens a new window or tab. It briefly shows a Beta login window and then goes to programming grid. The both give access to your DVR, including the attached EHD, if any. Neither gives any indication whether any particular recording is internal or external. Why are they both available?
