On the basic packages i know that the music channels are being added to Americas top 60 or 100 then what channels will be added to Americas top 120 or 200 then?
It actually works a LOT better than Direct's in my opinion. There is the "all channels" (Direct's Default), then there is an option called "all subs" listing all the channels you subscribe to only, and then you can build a favorites list, where it starts empty and you go through and add what your favorites are. Also if you have High Definition, there is an option on the listing to list only HD channelsTreeFarm said:Hey, just in case I actually do switch, does the Dish program guide work like D*s? Do I have to manually step thru all those flippin music channels and individually delete them from my favorites?
The hide locked channels feature is my favorite. It removes all the ch's that i never watch from the guide and makes sure that the kids can not order any PPV or porn.James Long said:Other than the "All Channels" and "All Subscribed" lists, one has to make the effort to ADD new channels to their personal favorites lists. If you really hate the CD channels and want to eradicate them from your system there is a small effort required to go into locks and lock out the channels where they will never be able to be tuned or appear in an EPG.
Channel 84 does not show up in my favorites list. I didn't want to see it, so I didn't add it... and I never see itMike D-CO5 said:The locks work great EXCEPT for channel 84 HOME SHOPPING NETWORK. You can lock that sucker out and it comes back like a bad penny every time.
Odd. It locks out easily on my 622, 211 and 501 (I have not tried my 301). Stays locked out even after forced reboots. When is yours magically reappearing? Have you tried locking it out lately?Mike D-CO5 said:It does show up in the all channels or all subbed list NO MATTER what you do to lock it out.
How about some channels with logs burning or fish swimming ? That would increase the numbers also. I sure would like my RSN in HD as I am sure a lot of others would also.Mike D-CO5 said:You will be getting about 32 Cd music channels that no one wants ,that used to be available to only top 120 and above. Oh and maybe some other shopping channels etc to fill up to make about 100 channels. ARen't you blessed? Did you really think that Dish would give you something with no price increase? This is to help repackage the programming pack so they can say Top 100 instead of Top 60. Same when they repackage the top 120 to the top 200 and so on.
On both of my 622 dvrs it will not lock out. THis has been discussed on another thread and others reported the same. Maybe it only plagues some of the 622 owners.James Long said:Odd.

EDIT: Had to take the 211 off of the list. That one is magically reappearing. :sure:
Well at night the Dish hd demo channels shows swimming fish in HD no less.gjh3260 said:How about some channels with logs burning or fish swimming ? That would increase the numbers also. I sure would like my RSN in HD as I am sure a lot of others would also.
The programming on the Muzak channels is often far superior to the Sirius channels. That has not always been true but, for the last few months, Sirius music has been programmed by drooling idiots.Mike D-CO5 said:You will be getting about 32 Cd music channels that no one wants ,that used to be available to only top 120 and above.
