Any body else having trouble with Dish the past few days? I'm getting Random "partial" or complete signal losses.even during good weather. If I change the channel the signal sometimes comes back.

First thing to look at is whether a tree has grown into it's path.
Then call your retailer to see if your signals are up to par.
Then we start looking at cabling and connectors.

Same thing has been happening with Innovative cable for the past few days. Plus random channels are "Off Air".

Dish program listings at night frequently show a channel to be "Off the Air" when, in fact, it's on the air and showing programming. Very strange.

The Innovative channels that are "off air" really ARE off air. Program listings are displayed in the program lineup but, when tuned, there's just a "temporarily off air please check back soon" notice.

My biggest problem with Dish was getting them to get to the house to hook it up..... it took FOREVER. It was all worth it though cause the guy who came to install it was this dread lock Rasta who used a machete to cut the brush down behind the house. You don't see that in Boston !!!! Put shots of him with the machete on my facebook page everyone loved it!!!!

I have not had any issues with Dish as some of you have posted. So to me it's not a Dish problem.. As for smaller font on the channel guide, all you have to do is press menu button, find the selection where you change the font on the guide display. I changed from small to medium & if that is still too small for you, change font to large.

GeoTan,
It only takes FOREVER if you order directly from Dish.

People on STX that call us get installed within a week generally.
