Now that Dish has completly cut off my locals I wonder if they are going to refund the $$$$ they charged me for the extra equiptment they sold me to receive the distants? I checked this morning and found that I was charged $179.56 (in another thread in posted the wrong amount) to put in a DP44 & a dish 500 so that I could receive the signal from 148.

I hope this thread does not become a long complaint thread about loosing the distants, I am just looking for anyone else that paid for the hardware and now can't use it.

You may receive a small service credit but that's all you should expect at this time.

Ok... so your complaint was that you paid $179.56 for a DPP switch that you only needed to get distants, which are now gone... and you are ok with a $50 credit?
A shrewd person should be able to make up the difference by selling the DPP44. The only switch that you're somewhat stuck with at this point is the DP34.

But if that's the case... then he should just have sold the DPP to begin with and not complained that he paid for something he couldn't use. If he can sell it and get his money back, or at least most of it... then where's the gripe?

I was with him on the initial post of feeling bad for paying a bunch of money for something no longer useful... but now after follow-up realizing that he may actually make money if he sells the switch... it seems like he had no reason to complain after all.

At first I didn't think I could sell a used switch but after the reply from Harsh "the light went on". I don't have a complaint now.
