    An additional dish for when you're set up for more than a day? (One you manually set up next to or on top of the RV.)

    You are correct but it really hurts that I spent over $2,000 a few months ago to avoid doing that anymore. I've gotten pretty good at setting up a portable dish but it seems like I always end up doing it at night in the rain.

    There's too much going on in the world to be without a news channel so I may have to bite the bullet.

    Oh, of course the RV Gods will make it that way! News, though, can be digested pretty well in SD, at least for my druthers. Then when you're set up in the sunshine for a few days, you can set up the portable dish, record a zillion things in HD to watch later.

    ¡Vaya con Dios!

    When you all on this thread get a chance, turn on channel 204 to hear Charlie Ergen brand new message.

    Basicly, Dish & Fox News have agreed on major terms to have Fox back for a long term agreement . Final contractual details still needs to be worked out.

    Thank you for your patience!

    We are pleased to announce that DISH and Fox have agreed to the major terms of a new long term agreement that will restore Fox News and Fox Business to our customers. We are working with Fox on a few contractual details but we are optimistic that these channels will be restored very quickly.

    We know these negotiations were frustrating and we cannot thank you enough for remaining patient as we work to finalize this agreement. We were very appreciative of all the comments, emails and phone calls we received from our customers that were very supportive of our stance to fight for fair rates and terms. But we also appreciated the feedback that was critical of our decisions. These comments to DISH and to Fox ultimately brought our respective teams together in a spirit of compromise so that our mutual customers would no longer be impacted.

    Again, thank you very much for standing by us during this time. With this new agreement, you will be able to enjoy Fox News and Fox Business for many years to come.

    We sincerely thank you for your patience and for being a valued DISH customer.

    Yeah, I would like to see the Blaze stay in HD and be mapped to the same channel as its SD counterpart.

    I was just finishing up eating and saw the press release email from Dish... So I came here to spread the good news to see you guys already talking about it, but at least I got the press release up before they uplinked the channels.

    Since the release says "these channels are available now" I would expect the uplink to happen very soon, unless someone got press-happy and sent out that release too soon. I did check the channels, and saw that they are still showing Newsmax and Blaze at the moment.

    It usually takes my receiver a couple of minutes longer to process Uplink Activity than the computer I use to monitor the satellite streams. Sometimes I'll have it posted (manually) to DBSTalk before the receiver refreshes the guide and shows the new content. :)


    BTW: There is a scroll running on The Blaze channel 205 suggesting people tune to channel 204 for an update on the negotiations.

    206 NewsMax got the correct EPG for their channel during the dispute ... I suppose Fox News and Fox Business will get their old channels back.
