    On my HWS, ever since update U718, now on the bottom of my guide i get ads for ppv movies, even thought it is set for TIPS AND TRICKS ONLY, not SHOW ALL.
    I even reset the setting for the guide banner but still get the ppv ads. Anyone else having this? Thanks in advance.

    It's not a bug, it's a feature!

    That banner has been on the guide for so long that I don't even notice it.

    Yes the banner has been there forever but it never had ppv ads when i had it set to TIPS AND TRICKS ONLY,
    Not sure why there is even a choice in the settings if Dish is going to put whatever in the banner?

    You missed the point. DISH can put whatever in the banner but I wont see it as my mind automatically ignores it because banner has always been there.

    if people are paying to advertise..........why aren't we getting a price break, since this is a new source of income for Charlie

    Maybe next Feb. we will see a 2 cent smaller price increase. REALLY you don't expect Charlie to give profits back to consumers PROFITS are for share holders buy stock if you want money back.

    What advertisements are you seeing? All I am seeing are promotions for DISH PPVs. Not exactly high dollar advertising where DISH is raking in the cash from every banner view. They only make more money if the additional awareness of the PPV content raises sales of the advertised PPV.
