Wally and pathway x2

Do not buy a Wally receiver. They are junk. I was on my third receiver and finally spoke to a senior RV specialist. I bought a Vip211K and plugged it in. Wow, my pathway x2 works great my issues are gone. I reset my Wally’s 50 times in three weeks. No signal, pixeling, lost signal. You get the idea. New receiver is great. Must be manufactured in 1980. Lol. Don’t buy a Wally. Junk.

Hello 

Bigjay113791! I am sorry to hear that you have such an issue when using the Wally receiver. That experience would frustrate me as well, and is definitely not the experience we want any of our customers to have. I am ecstatic to see that you were able to find a resolution, and are now able to enjoy your services with ease.

What receivers work with the X2 for both Western and Eastern Satellites besides Wally? That is why I bought X2, I had a Wally and now tired of low voltage problem. Resets stink. Need one of new Wallus.

This has been TOTALLY our problem as well. The wally receiver, of which i now own THREE, and nothing but HASSLES. I am so sick of it and therefore sick of dish network. My husband says to try the other receiver but i say junk the whole system!! Money down the drain.....as for my time and aggravation??

Sure wish I'd known of the low voltage from the Wallys before i spent my money on one and a PathwayX2.

 

Apparently Dish doesn't give a D--M that so many spent their money on what they were led to believe was a good setup. Why would they offer a package with a dish that needs 14 to 18 volts to work properly and a receiver that only puts out 13.1? From what I've read that seems to be the major issue keeping this pairing from working.

 

Ours is brand new and doesn't work worth a Darn. It hooked up just fine, once, when i was setting up the account which was the most frustrating thing I've ever done. Where did they find that representative? Since then it can't aquire the satelites on either arc even though the Pathway X2 is sitting out in a clear field. Messed with it all afternoon.

 

My wife says not to throw the whole damned thing in the dumpster yet. She better hide the trailer keys or that may happen.

Hi Kimberly,

 

The Wally is gone. A friend swapped me a 211K for it so I'm good. He's in a house not an RV so he has a hard mounted dish not a portable. Hopefully it'll work for him and he won't come "looking" for me.
