I made switch from DTV to Dish. Where do I start. The 811 receiver has been released to soon(junk at this point). The receiver will not allow me to receive all of the Off Air TV that is available in my area (only the rescaled SD channels and any special Hd programing that happens to be on these. Not any of the HD feeds that run 24/7 in my area). What they sell in there HD package is not HD but rescaled SD(sucks). You are not able to go to the off air directly IE no dash key on remote. There are also issues with the guide system staying updated. Customer satisfaction 0.
Stick with DTV There HD receivers work.
Do you make your living off of D* because your post is nothing but false. Lets see:
"The 811 receiver has been released to soon(junk at this point)" I get 5 digital OTA/HD channels and 5 HD channels over the dish. I would hardly call it junk.
"Not any of the HD feeds that run 24/7 in my area". I can assure that you are not using it correctly or that the station is too far away. I pull in stations 20 miles from my house with 92% signal strenght.
"What they sell in there HD package is not HD but rescaled SD(sucks)." Again, nothing but garbage. Discover HD and HD net are HD all the time. ESPN is upconverted but that is ESPN's fault, and not E*. It is the same with D*.
"You are not able to go to the off air directly IE no dash key on remote." For a channel that is 26-01, all you have to do is type 02601 and it put the dash in for you. Besides, why not just browse for the channel.
As noted above, you post is full of complete mistruths. Why do you feel like you should spread such lies about a great product that is FREE. You definitly have a motivation somewhere, i.e. a pay check.
