Have had an ongoing problem with signal loss. A few Laker games have been ruined, where all of a sudden the game is over because of signal loss. Happens a fair amount to the point where I'm beginning to think I should cancel. Good many down the toilet.
Right now, there is no signal at all again, and I'm doing a reset. The weather is perfect.
Is this how it is for everyone?
Skeptical that signal loss is to fraudulently promote a Hopper upgrade:
After no recent problems, it seemed an odd coincidence that, 30 minutes into a major NFL playoff game, my satellite signal goes down. (I have guests, food, the works, to watch the game; use your imagination). On phone with DISH technician who says codes indicate 'physical cable problem' and suggests sending a $95 service call. After I confirm all cable/connections are sound, he then says there may be a 'long shot' attempt with re-accessing satellite signal and guess what, it worked. I see another customer on this string that had the same incident at the same time for the same game. Note that during this process, I was told that, "by the way, you qualify for a Hopper upgrade--which would improve reliability for the future." DISH, surely you wouldn't fraudulently cause a temporary problem during a major national TV event to promote a product....? This stinks to high heaven.
