Recent Review: ChicKT - Green Cove Springs, FL - 11/6/2016 Hooked up the receiver and have had no problems with it at all. Great receiver!
Hooked up the receiver and have had no problems with it at all. Great receiver! ChicKT - Green Cove Springs, FL - 11/6/2016 11:40:17 AM I initially had issues, but it turned out to be a bad coax. Once that was corrected, I have had no problems and HIGHLY recommend this reveiver.
good deal, great price, works fine, great off-air digital tuner SC-tech-guy - Asheville, NC - 9/3/2016 12:09:31 AM Received brand new recvr from DISH (not reman'd). Worked fine, no issues. Activated online with DISH in 10 min, no problem. This unit has digital off-air tuner built in, & worth the $$ just for that. Off air tuner is excellent - very sensitive. Picked up 18 stations perfectly with very small antenna. One of the best tuners I've seen. Setup is standard DISH, so nothing different there. DVR works fine, in the little testing I've done. Everything worked as advertised, no problems so far. Only negative was I ordered this unit with a UHF (RF) remote for control when not in line of sight to rcvr - but the unit was not shipped with the UHF antenna (1 star off for that). I've had other DISH recvr's with UHF RF remote capability - and those all came with the small dipole antenna that attaches in back of the recvr. I had a spare antenna, so was able to use the recvr with the UHF RF remote as well as the IR standard remote (included with recvr). Overall, great bang for the buck... if it lasts (always an unknown with modern offshore manufactured electronics).
It works great. It dose just what it was said to do. The Big Guy - Satellite Beach, FL - 10/3/2014 7:56:27 PM I hooked it up to the Satellite Dish. I went through the set up procedure and within 30 minutes I was watching TV with a really great two turner DVR.
Simple to install. wildbillpidg - Bristol, PA - 3/15/2014 3:05:34 PM Was very easy to install, I called Dish to activate and within 20 minutes recording my first program.
Worked Like a Champ Tommyboy - New Castle, VA - 11/29/2013 11:05:33 PM Bought this unit to replace my secondary DP311 receiver I had through Dish. I had put a new HD tv in the bedroom, and my secondary receiver was a SD. Knew the cabling and alignments were good ( my primary receiver was a VP612 and already working ), so just had to replace the receiver. It started the Wizard download out of the box, and 20 minutes later I called Dish to have them activate. Ten minutes later was watching TV and recording a show. Equipment looked brand new, ( I think it was. ) and was pleased it went so easily. Thanks Solid Signal.
A very good receiverqualityperformance alf - Newburg, Pa. - 3/28/2013 A good buy for the money and performs as advertisedand simple to installand use.
Piece of junk ectjr - Palm coast, FL - 4/11/2015 11:29:14 PM This is the second one since January and it just died. The both of them did the same thing, turn it on and all I get is a solid pink screen and the remote does nothing. I can't even turn it off with the power button on the receiver, I have to unplug it. I tried to do a hard reset with no results.
