    The "Enhanced TV" popups that tell you to press select for more information or another?

    If you don't like it, you can go under tv enhancements and disable it.

    I get this too! For me, these will appear as a 'caller ID' pop-up & display characters that have no meaning. I always assumed this had something to do with Dish sending a signal (?) to the receiver. If you didn't have caller ID, you wouldn't see it. It is annoying though....

    If it is showing up like Caller ID perhaps it is static or noise on the phone line.

    The Caller ID function can be disabled as well.
