Hello Brad_Felmey. I completely understand this issue has definitely been a frustrating one! I know where you're coming from, and we definitely don't want our members to purchase a new Wally due to this issue. I would like to see how I can help with this situation. Can you send us a Private Message with your phone number and 4-digit PIN please?
I hate to say this but at this point I feel like my best option is to drive to Camping World and buy a new Wally and hope it's got an older version that I can update to U802. I'm so tired of seeing the error messages on screen, not being able to record anything etc that it's worth the $100 bucks or whatever it will cost just to resolve this once and for all. It's clear Dish is not going to make this right, I don't feel like Dish management even knows it's going on. I can't bear to pick up the phone and call Dish Outdoors at this point which is where I left off with support yesterday after being told to find an RV dealer to take my Wally to, also an unacceptable resolution to this problem.
We have a King Dome In-Motion and we are having the exact same issues as everyone else with our Wally’s. It is WALLY/DISH NETWORK problem! And their “Don’t CARE attitude “!
Hi there, grams2bjc! We are right there with you, wanting to get these Wally's updated to a better working software. We know that this has been a frustrating time, and we really appreciate you hanging in there with us while we work to correct this.
At this time, to get everything up and running verify signal strength on 119/19 or 61.5/114, place receiver in standby or change daily reset time to initiate software download to the nearest hour. Hopefully this helps!
We are also happy to help troubleshoot here if you would like to send us a Private Message with your phone number and 4-digit security code. You can view step-by-step instructions on how to send a PM here: https://communities.dish.com/t5/Communities-101/How-To-Send-a-Private-Message/td-p/15039
Thank you for reaching out to us, LarryRHobbs! Our engineering team is working very hard to get this issue resolved as soon as possible! Once it's resolved, the functionality of the Wally on your portable satellite will go back to working correctly. Thank you so much for your continued patience.
Hello JakeB (Dish Employee).....how many are on your Engineering Team? And are they working on this problem full time for the last two months, or just in their spare time?
We definitely understand the frustration, Pax. Our competent Engineering team handles many issues on a daily basis, and they perform extensive testing and work hard to ensure any software updates won't impact other areas of your TV viewing.
