how do I get a new smartcard?
Just by reading the thread from beginnong.
Just sit back and wait for the purple smart card gnomes to send you one! :new_sleep
Or eBay it .
They will send you one in the mail. I received mine last week so I do not think that they are going out all at once.
The new smartcards have been in a staged rollout for well over a month, with at least another month to go.
I'm hearing that it will take about four more months to get all the new cards out.
Got mine yesterday for a 722 & 622, installed, rebooted, all channels after it came back up, not sure where the 20 minute wait comes from?
same here..although i still got a message that popped up last night on my screen saying i need to update my smart card to avoid interruption in service even though i already did..time to call dish i guess
Got mine yesterday too. I have three boxes - two 622s and a 501. Replacement on the 622s went fine, but the 501 doesn't have a TV hooked up to it at the moment, and we're about to go out of town, so the earliest I will probably be able to do anything about it would be Nov. 1.
That's within the 2 week window, so I should be OK, but I'm just wondering what would happen if something came up and I was unable to replace the card then. If it gets deauthorized and I swap the card later will it just get re-authorized and everything will be fine? Or am I going to have to jump through some hoops to get it re-authorized first, and then swap cards?
Yes, that is exactly how it works. There will be no need to call DISH.
Why can't you go to a single dish (1000.4) now?
If you lose programming and have not received a new smart card, call 888-230-7836
Still waiting for my new cards. Just curious. Since you have two 622s, and they sent you two cards, do they indicate which 622 to install each card, or can you install either card in either 622?
Won't be a problem. Worse case you will get a message telling you the old smart card will no longer work. I just did it - take out the old - replace with the new - the donload will start on it's own and you are all set. The whole procedure takes less than 5 minutes.
Each card is for a specific receiver and the instructions will guide you in determining which card goes into which receiver.
NM I posted before searching
Did anyone start getting the threatening warnings on their receivers before actually receiving the smart cards in the mail? My 622 was has been showing the warning pop-up since Saturday night, and I haven't received the new smartcard in the mail yet. Hopefully it should be here today or tomorrow, though, assuming Dish Network actually did indeed send it out.
Presumably it arrives in a mailing separate from a bill?...
Why does that matter? What about folks that take their receiver with them on the weekends to their vacations homes (Charlie said on a Charlie Chat that it was OK with him to do that).
Please give a reference to which Charlie Chat that was on. Month and year will be enough. Or is this just a reference to "somebody said that Charlie said sometime that it was OK".
The written terms of the residential agreement with DISH says *NO*.
