The issue changed a bit for me. I have not had any further issues when watching something previously recorded on a channel I no longer have. However, I believe the issue still remains in two areas:dchay said:Same issue here: My kids recorded a ton of I Love Lucy episodes during the "Heartland" preview. A week later when it ended none of the episodes were viewable due to the "you're not subscribed to this channel" error.
Do you no longer subscribe to the channel that event was recorded from?Kerry71;3183665 said:This very thing just happened to me...tried to watch a recording off ehd on Joey and said I had to be subscribed. So, I then transferred it from ehd to hopper, hoping it would let me watch it from Joey and still same msg. Odd thing is, it let me watch it off Hopper(before I transferred). ????
Unless this problem is fixed, the Hopper or any new box with the same restriction is forever not an option for me.
I have over 800 hours of recorded movies and unwatched TV show episodes from the premium channels and, with the sole exception of HBO, I simply don't subscribe to all of them 12 months a year.
If the DIRT folks are reading this thread, please pass on to management that should Dish ever make that content inaccessible while I'm a Dish subscriber, I will have to reevaluate my decades long commitment to Dish/Echostar.
If the Hopper must be this way for licensing reasons, fine. But it is the Dish policy to not allow even a lowly 612 in a home with a Hopper that will have eliminated access to content customers have paid for, not the Hopper EHD feature design.
Thanks! That's what I was looking for.
