5040 no longer works with Dish 311?!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
After eagerly waiting for what seems like eternity, our installer ("Tom") finally showed up to install Dish Network. (We've been wanting to dump Comcast for quite some time, but that's a whole nother nasty topic.)

Anyway, all was well until Tom caught sight of my existing Comcast box (ie, Motorola DCT 2244 / 1661). He saw that my ReplayTV 5040 was hooked up to it, and said, "You know that our Dish 311 will NOT work with your ReplayTV, right?" I told him that I had Dish in 2004, and that my ReplayTV worked perfectly fine with the Dish receiver. He said, "Yes, ReplayTV 'used to' work with our Dish receivers, but not no more. I've been doing these Dish installations for 9 years, sir."

Long story short, I had Tom postpone the installation. In the meantime, do any of you have a ReplayTV 5040 that is currently working fine with your Dish 311? (I know that that some 5040 owners are still doing well with the Dish 301, but I'm explicitly looking for feedback from 311 owners.)

Many thanks!

I do, and it works perfectly. The installer guy doesn't know what he's talking about.

Installers aren't always right!?!? Say it isn't so
