Installation Instructions
HOW TO USE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
These instructions guide you through the installation of a Satellite System
which includes your DishPro receiver (included with this manual), and
one of two kinds of dish antenna systems.
•
DishPro antenna systems which can be identified by the DishPro logo shown below.
•
Legacy antenna systems which do not have the DishPro logo.
Important: You cannot use DishPro LNBFs and switches (those marked
with the DishPro logo) with Legacy switches and LNBFs (those without
the DishPro logo). You must install your DISH antenna system with either
all DishPro LNBFs and switches or all Legacy LNBFs and switches. If
you mix the two, the system will not work.
Note: If you have a Dish antenna system already installed, and the dish
has been pointed for the strongest possible signal strength, you can skip
this chapter and go directly to Appendix A to install the satellite receiver in
an existing system.
Tip: Look for the
DishPro logo to
determine if your
system is a DishPro or Legacy
(non-DishPro)
system. After you
determine the
type of system
you have, use the
instructions that
apply to that system.
Note: If you are installing a DishPro receiver into a system with DishPro
LNBFs (and/or switches), you can have as much as 200 feet of cable
between the LNBF and the receiver. However, you must use only RG-6
coaxial cables rated for 950 to 2150 MHz. Some cables may say "Swept
tested for 2150 MHz." If you have any doubt about this, ask your DISH
retailer, or look on the container the cable came in. Do not use cable
company TV cables or cables from other satellite TV systems not rated
for 950-2150 MHz. These other cables may cause signal loss. Do not use
existing cables such as RG-59. Also, be sure that any outdoor connections
are made using waterproof F-connectors.
Note: If you are installing the DishPro receiver into a system with Legacy
LNBFs and/or switches (that do not have a DishPro logo), you can have
as much as 100 feet of cable between the LNBF and the receiver.
However, you must use only RG-6 cable - do not use existing cables such
as RG-59. Also, be sure that any outdoor connections are made using
waterproof F-connectors.
Tighten all the coaxial cable connections only by hand. If you
use a wrench you may over-tighten the connections and
damage your equipment. Such damage is not covered by the
Limited Warranty in the User Guide that came with the
system.

Installation Instructions
INSTALLING A DISH 500 ANTENNA
Whether you are installing a DishPro or Legacy system, you need to
assemble the satellite dish, mount it, and point it in the general
direction of a satellite. To do this, follow these instructions.
FINDING THE SATELLITES
To find the satellites in the sky, you need to know the azimuth (the
south, southeast, or southwest direction to the satellites), elevation
(the angle up to the satellites), and the skew angles from your
location.
Do the following to get these angles:
1. Connect the TV Set Out port on the receiver’s back panel to the
television’s RF Tuner Input using a coaxial cable. Make sure
that the TV is tuned to the same channel as the Channel 3/4
Switch on the receiver’s back panel (for example, if this switch is
at “3,” the TV must be tuned to Channel 3).
Note: You may choose other connections between your receiver
and TV. See page 13 for more information.
2. Make sure that the remote control batteries are fresh, and are
installed properly. Press the SAT mode button on the remote to
make sure the remote is in SAT mode to control the satellite
receiver.
3. Turn ON the television and receiver.
4. Go to the Point Dish/Signal menu, by opening the Main Menu
and pressing 6-1-1 (unless the receiver already displays this
menu).
Tip: When you
select the Dish
500 option, you
will see the Dish
500 angles. Otherwise, the
angles for the
Dish 300 are displayed.
5. Enter your ZIP code in the ZIP Code field.
Page 64
Mounting the Dish
6. Select the Dish 500 option.
7. The receiver displays the Dish 500 Setup menu. The menu displays
the azimuth, elevation, and skew angles. Write down these numbers
in the space provided.
Azimuth:
8. Select Cancel to exit out of this menu and return to the Point Dish/
Signal menu.
Skew:
Elevation:
MOUNTING THE DISH
1. With a compass, find the required azimuth angle. Then, use the
elevation angle to find out how high the satellites are in the sky from
your location. Estimate the angle by comparing what you wrote down
and the drawing below.
2. Make sure the dish is located so that nothing blocks the line of sight
to the satellites. Mount the mast to a solid surface so that the dish
antenna cannot move, even during windy condition, or be bumped out
of adjustment. Keep in mind that physical and environmental
conditions can block your satellite dish’s ability to receive a clear
satellite signal.
Mount the dish so there are no obstacles between the dish and the
satellite. This will help keep the signal strength strong even in bad
weather. Obstacles that can block the signal include plant growth, and
eaves and overhangs on your house.
Note: Never mount to a tree.
NO
YES
3. Align the top part of the mast so that it is absolutely vertical, as
shown below. If the top part of the mast is off vertical by only a few
degrees, it will be difficult or maybe even impossible for you to find
the satellites. Take at least two readings with a bubble level, on the
upper mast, that are 90 degrees apart from one another.

4. Assemble the satellite dish as shown below.
Note: There are steps that require you to run cable through parts
of the antenna assembly, so do not connect the LNBF(s) or the Y
Bracket and do not tighten the mast clamp on the mast until
specifically instructed.
Tip: Once the
skew angle is
set, do not try to
fine-tune this
angle when aiming the dish.
Page 66
5. Loosen both skew bolts and set the skew by rotating the dish
mounting bracket to align the red mark with the required angle on
the skew scale which you wrote down on page 65. Tighten the
skew bolts securely to keep the dish from rotating.

INSTALLING A DISHPRO DISH 500 SYSTEM
The following instructions are for installing a DishPro receiver in a
system with a DishPro Twin LNBF. If you are installing a multi-dish
system, you will need to follow these instructions and then the
instructions that begin on page 72. If you are installing a DISH 500 with
Legacy LNBFs (with no DishPro logo), go to Installing a DISH 500
Legacy System beginning on page 79.
Tip: The DishPro
Twin LNBF has
the DishPro
Logo on it.
Important: You cannot use DishPro LNBFs and switches (those marked
with the DishPro logo) with Legacy switches and LNBFs (those without
the DishPro logo). You must install your DISH antenna system with
either all DishPro LNBFs and switches or all Legacy LNBFs and
switches. If you mix the two, the system will not work.
Note: If you are installing a DishPro receiver into a system with DishPro
LNBFs (and/or switches), you can have as much as 200 feet of cable
between the LNBF and the receiver. However, you must use only RG-6
coaxial cables rated for 950 to 2150 MHz. Some cables may say "Swept
tested for 2150 MHz." If you have any doubt about this, ask your DISH
retailer, or look on the container the cable came in. Do not use cable
company TV cables or cables from other satellite TV systems not rated
for 950-2150 MHz. These other cables may cause signal loss. Do not use
existing cables such as RG-59. Also, be sure that any outdoor connections
are made using waterproof F-connectors.
lPage 67
Chapter 4
Installation Instructions
1. Thread the RG-6 coaxial cable through the mast (optional),
support arm and the Y-bracket. This cable should be long enough
to run from your receiver to your LNBF. See Grounding the
System on page 95 for detailed cable installation instructions.
2. Connect the RG-6 cable from the DishPro Satellite In
connection on the back of the receiver directly to port 1 of the
DishPro Twin LNBF, as shown below.
Important: Be sure there are no multi-dish switches between the
LNBF and the receiver.
Port 2
Port 1
Connect to Port 1. It’s on
the left when the LNBF is
pointed towards you
3. Attach the LNBF to the Y-bracket, using the two LNBF screws.
4. Slide the dish assembly down onto the mast if not already
installed. Make sure the pivot bolt rests on the top of the mast.
Turn the dish assembly so that it points in the general direction of
the satellites, using the azimuth angle from page 65.
5. You should see the Point Dish/Signal menu. If not, open the
Main Menu, select System Setup, then Installation, then
Point Dish/Signal or press 6-1-1 on the remote.
Page 68
Installing a DishPro DISH 500 system
6. Select Check Switch.The Check Switch screen will open.
7. Select Check. The receiver shows you a message that it is checking
the switches.
8. When the check switch procedure finishes, you should see an
installation summary screen similar to the one shown on the
following page. In the Satellite line, you should see the word
“Conn,” twice. In the Device line, you will see the word “Twin”
twice. In the LNBF line, you should see “twin-1.” This indicates that
your receiver has confirmed the connection with Port 1 on your
DishPro Twin LNBF is working. If your Installation Summary
screen matches this, you can go directly to step #10. If not, do one of
the following:
•
If “Xs” appear in the Satellite line, recheck and tighten all the
connections in your system, and then select Retest to run Check
Switch again.
•
If “Twin-2” is in the LNBF line, your receiver is connected to
Port 2 of the DishPro Twin LNBF. Disconnect the cable and
reconnect it to Port 1 of the LNBF, and then select Retest to run
Check Switch again.
•
If you happened to pick up a satellite at this point, you may see
“110” or “119” in the Satellite line.
•
If “119” shows under Dish Input 1, then go to step #10. If
“119”shows under Dish Input 2, move the dish about 9
degrees to the east, and then select Retest to run Check
Switch again.
•
If “110” shows under Dish Input 2,then go to Step #10. If
“110” shows under Dish Input 1, move your dish about 9
degrees to the west, and then select Retest to run Check
Switch again.
Tip: If, by accident, a satellite
is detected
through the
wrong side of
the LNBF, the
dish needs to be
turned to line up
the satellite signal to the correct side of the
LNBF.
lPage 69
Chapter 4
Installation Instructions
Tip: Have one
person aim the
dish while
another watches
the signal
strength or
listens to the
signal tone.
Tip: Don’t stand
in front of the
dish while you
aim it, because
your body will
block the satellite
signal. After you
adjust the aim, let
go of the dish so
that it can settle
back in place by
itself.
9. Select OK to return to the Point Dish/Signal screen. Make sure
the check mark is next to 119 West. If not, move the highlight to
119 West and press Select. Notice the signal strength bar. This is
used to help you aim the dish by showing the strength of the
signal you are receiving. Look at the signal strength bar while you
aim the dish.
Important: Do not change the skew setting.
10. Turn the dish back and forth very slowly, until the signal strength
bar turns green. This shows you’ve found the signal.
Note: If you cannot find the signal, turn the dish back to the first
azimuth angle. Then, loosen both elevation bolts just enough so you
can tilt the dish. Tilt the dish up by two degrees, and then tighten
both bolts. Now, turn the dish back and forth again. If you still can’t
find the signal, tilt the dish up again very slightly and turn the dish
back and forth until you find the signal.
11. When the signal strength bar is green, turn the dish back and forth
just a little, to where the signal strength bar shows the strongest
signal. When you find the strongest signal, tighten both mast
clamp bolts. Then loosen both elevation bolts, just enough so you
can tilt the dish. Tilt the dish up and down just a little, to where
the signal strength bar shows the strongest signal. Do not adjust
the skew. When you find the strongest signal, tighten all bolts in
the dish assembly so the dish cannot be moved.
Page 70
Installing a DishPro DISH 500 system
12. Verify reception from both satellites. Select the Check Switch
option.When the Check Switch menu opens, select Check. The
receiver shows you a message that it is checking the switches. When
the procedure is finished, you will see an Installation Summary
screen similar to the one shown below. Confirm that you have
signals from both the 110 West and 119 West Satellites, that
you see “All” twice in the Transponder line, and that the message
“Satellite reception verified” is displayed. Select Cancel to exit this
menu.
13. If you do not see “110,” under Dish Input 2:
•
Make sure the skew angle you wrote down on page 65 is exactly
the same as the skew angle you set in step #5 on page 65. If it is
not, reset the skew angle as described on page 66. After you reset
the skew angle, go back to page 70, and start over from step #10.
•
If “119” is shown under Dish Input 2, move the dish
approximately 9o to the east and restart the procedure at step #6.
14. Look at the Point Dish/Signal menu. If you have good signal
strength with the check mark in 119 West, move the check mark to
110 West. If you have good signal strength on 110 West, go to
step #15. If you do not have good signal strength with the check mark
in 110 West, repeat Step #12, and fine-tune the dish but with the
check mark in 110 West instead of 119 West. While the 110 West
and 119 West signals will not be equal, you should be able to finetune the dish until you have the strongest possible signal from both
satellites. When you have finished this, select Check Switch. When
the Check Switch menu opens, select Check to run Check
Switch again.
15. Select Cancel to exit the Point Dish/Signal menu. An Attention
screen will open asking the mounting and positioning of your dish is
complete with a “Locked” indication in the Point Dish/Signals
screen. If the answer is yes, select Yes.
If the answer is No, you will need to repoint your dish following the
preceding steps until the mounting and positioning is complete and
you do have the “Locked” indication.
16. After you select Yes, the receiver will begin taking a software
upgrade. You will see a Warning that “Vital program information
will now be downloaded into your receiver.” You will also see a
status bar showing the progress of this upgrade.
lPage 71
Chapter 4
Installation Instructions
17. When the software upgrade is complete, you will see a message
that your receiver’s memory is being upgraded.
While this message is displaying, the green power light on the
receiver’s front panel will blink. Do not disturb the receiver while
the green light is blinking.
If you will be installing a multi-dish system, follow the
instructions that begin below. If not, skip to the section that
begins on page 94 titled Grounding the System for instructions on
how to ground your system.
INSTALLING A MULTIPLE DISH DISHPRO SYSTEM
Important: You cannot use DishPro LNBFs and switches (those
marked with the DishPro logo) together with Legacy switches and
LNBFs (those without the DishPro logo).You must install your DISH
antenna system with either all DishPro LNBFs and switches or all
Legacy LNBFs and switches. If you mix the two, the system will not
work.
Note: If you are installing a DishPro receiver into a system with
DishPro LNBFs (and/or switches), you can have as much as 200 feet
of cable between the LNBF and the receiver. However, you must use
only RG-6 coaxial cables rated for 950 to 2150 MHz. Some cables
may say "Swept tested for 2150 MHz." If you have any doubt about
this, ask your Dish retailer, or look on the container the cable came in.
Do not use cable company TV cables or cables from other satellite TV
systems not rated for 950-2150 MHz. These other cables may cause
signal loss. Do not use existing cables such as RG-59. Also, be sure
that any outdoor connections are made using waterproof Fconnectors.
Once you have installed the DISH 500 with DishPro LNBFs (using
the preceding instructions), you can now install a DISH 300 with a
single DishPro LNBF as follows:
1. Turn on the television and the receiver if they are not already on.
You should see the Point Dish/Signal screen. If not, open the
Main Menu and press 6-1-1 on the remote.
2. Make sure there is a check mark next to the satellite your dish will
be pointing at. If there is not, use the Up and Down arrows on the
remote to move the highlight to the box next to the correct
satellite, and then press select on the remote.
Azimuth:
Elevation:
3. Enter your Zip code to get the necessary azimuth and elevation.
Write these down.
4. Connect an RG-6 cable from the Satellite In port on the DishPro
receiver’s back panel directly to the single DishPro LNBF on the
DISH 300. Make sure there are no multi-dish switches between
the LNBF and the DishPro receiver.
5. Select Check Switch from the Point Dish/Signal menu.
When the Check Switch screen opens, select Check.

the DishPro logo). You must install your DISH antenna system with
either all DishPro LNBFs and switches or all Legacy LNBFs and
switches. If you mix the two, the system will not work.
Tip: Look for the
DishPro logo to
determine if your
system is a DishPro or Legacy
(non-DishPro)
system. After you
determine the
type of system
you have, use the
instructions that
apply to that system.
Note: If you have a Dish antenna system already installed, and the dish
has been pointed for the strongest possible signal strength, you can skip
this chapter and go directly to Appendix A to install the satellite receiver
in an existing system.
Note: If you are installing a Legacy system with two single or dual
LNBFs, follow the instructions that begin below. If you will be installing
a Legacy system with a Twin LNBF, skip the following section and go to
page 82.
Note: If you are installing a multi-dish system, follow either these
instructions or the instructions for installing a system with a Twin LNBF,
and then follow the instructions that begin on page 86 to complete your
system.
INSTALLING A LEGACY DISH 500 SYSTEM WITH TWO SINGLE OR
DUAL LNBFS
Note: If you are installing a Legacy LNBF (that does not have a DishPro
logo), you can have up to 100 feet of cable between the satellite dish’s
LNBF connectors and the receiver, if you use only RG-6 cable. Also, be
sure that any outdoor connections are made using waterproof Fconnectors.
1. Once you have the dish mounted by completing all the steps in the
section titled Mounting the Dish, label both ends of one coaxial cable
“119”, and both ends of the other coaxial cable “110.” These cables
need to be long enough to reach from the receiver to the LNBF. If you
are installing dual LNBFs and want to support two receivers or
multiple dishes (see the Alternate Legacy Wiring Diagrams on
page 88), you will also need to thread two additional cables. If you
do, make sure you also label one cable “119” on both ends, and the
other “110” on both ends. See the section Grounding the Dish on
page 94 for detailed cable installation instructions.
lPage 79
Chapter 4
Installation Instructions
2. Thread both coaxial cables through the mast (optional) support
arm and the Y-bracket. Make sure the cable(s) labeled “119” are
threaded through the 119 side and the “110” cable(s) are threaded
through the “110” side as shown.

3. Attach the Y-bracket using the Y-bracket screw. Connect the
“119” cable(s) to one LNBF and the “110” cable(s) to the other
LNBF. Attach the LNBFs to the Y-bracket using the two LNBF
screws.
4. Slide the dish assembly down on the mast if not already installed.
Make sure the pivot bolt rests on the top of the mast. Turn the dish
assembly so that it points in the general direction of the satellites,
using the azimuth angle from page 65.
5. Connect the RG-6 coaxial cable from the “119” LNBF directly to
the Satellite In connection on the receiver’s back panel. You
may temporarily need to use a barrel connector in place of where
your switch will go later to complete this step. Do not connect the
multi-dish switch at this time.
6. Turn ON the television and the receiver. The Point Dish/Signal
menu should be displayed. If not, open the Main Menu and press
6-1-1 on the remote.
7. Make sure the check mark is next to 119 West. If it is not, move
the highlight to 119 West and press Select on the remote control.
8. Turn the dish back and forth very slowly, until the signal strength
bar turns green. This shows that you have found the signal.
Page 80
Installing a Legacy DISH 500 System
Note: If you cannot find the signal, turn the dish back to the original
azimuth setting. Then, loosen both elevation bolts just enough to be
able to tilt the dish. Tilt the dish up by two degrees, and then tighten
both bolts. Now, try turning the dish back and forth again. Repeat
these steps, raising and lowering the elevation, until you find the
satellite signal.
9. Once you have a signal, turn the dish assembly back and forth very
slightly until the signal strength bar displays the strongest possible
signal strength. Tighten the mast clamp bolts. Then, loosen the
elevation bolts and adjust the elevation of the dish up and down
slightly until the signal strength bar displays a strong signal. Do not
adjust skew. Tighten all the bolts in the dish assembly so that the dish
cannot be moved.
10. When you have the strongest possible signal, press the Cancel
button on the remote to exit the Point Dish/Signal menu. The
receiver displays an Attention message asking whether the
installation is complete. If the answer is yes, select the Yes option.
The receiver will begin taking a software upgrade. You will see a
Warning that “Vital program information will now be downloaded
into your receiver.” You will also see a status bar showing the
progress of this upgrade.
11. Once the software upgrade is complete, you will see a message that
your receiver’s memory is being upgraded.
While this message is displaying, the green power light on the
receiver’s front panel will blink. Do not disturb the receiver while the
green light is blinking.
This message may disappear, your screen may go blank for a few
minutes, and the green light may continue to blink. This is normal
and does not indicate a problem with the receiver.
12. Connect the “119” cable from the LNBF to the Dish 1 connection on
the multi-dish switch. Connect the “110” cable from the LNBF to the
Dish 2 connection the multi-dish switch. Connect a cable from the
multi-dish switch to the Satellite In port on the receiver’s back
panel.

Installation Instructions
13. Open the Main Menu and press 6-1-1 on the remote to again
open the Point Dish/Signal menu. Select Check Switch and
then select Check. The receiver will check your multi-switch
installation. After the system checks the installation, you will see
the Installation Summary screen. Make sure that the correct
switch is displayed and that you have “Satellite reception
verified” from both the 110 West and 119 West satellites.
14. At the Point Dish/Signal menu, select the 110 West option.
Verify that you have a green signal strength bar with a locked
signal.
•
If the signal from the 110 West satellite is weak and you do
not see a green signal strength bar, repeat steps #8 and #9 to
fine-tune the dish until you have the best attainable signal
strength for both the 119 West and 110 West satellites.
•
If there is no signal strength on 110 West, check your
connections and select Check Switch again. If there is still
no signal strength, check to make sure your skew angle is
correct, and start over, beginning with step #7 until you have
a good signal from both the 110 West and 119 West
satellites.
15. Connect any other receivers in the system, verify signal reception
from the Point Dish menu. Turn the receivers OFF so they can
take the software upgrade, and then run Check Switch to verify
signal reception from all satellites.
INSTALLING A LEGACY SYSTEM WITH A TWIN LNBF
Note: If you are installing a Legacy (non-DishPro) LNBF (that
does not have a DishPro logo), you can have up to 100 feet of
cable between the satellite dish’s LNBF connectors and the
receiver, if you use only RG-6 cables. Also, be sure that any
outdoor connections are made using waterproof F-connectors.
1. After you mount the dish, in accordance with the instructions
Installing a DISH 500 Antenna that begin on page 63, thread the
coaxial cable through the support arm, mast (optional), and the Ybracket. If you are planning on adding a second satellite receiver,
thread another cable through the support arm and the Y-bracket.
The cable should be long enough to reach from the LNBF on the
satellite dish to the receiver (refer to Grounding the System
beginning on page 94 or detailed cabling instructions).
Page 82
Installing a Legacy DISH 500 System
2. Attach the Y-bracket, using the Y-bracket screw.
3. Connect the RG-6 cable from the Satellite In connection on the back
of the receiver directly to the Twin LNBF, as shown below. Be sure
there are no multi-dish switches between the LNBF and the receiver.
4. Attach the LNBF to the Y-bracket using the two LNBF screws.
5. Slide the dish assembly down on the mast if not already installed.
Make sure the pivot bolt rests on the top of the mast. Turn the dish
assembly so that it points in the general direction of the satellite,
using the azimuth angle from page 65.
6. Turn ON the television and the receiver. The Point Dish/Signal
menu should be displayed.

7. Turn the dish back and forth very slowly, until the signal strength
bar turns green. This shows that you have found the signal.
Note: If you cannot find the signal, turn the dish back to the
original azimuth setting. Then, loosen both elevation bolts just
enough to be able to tilt the dish. Tilt the dish up by two degrees,
and then tighten both bolts. Now, try turning the dish back and
forth again. Repeat these steps, raising and lowering the elevation,
until you find the satellite signal.
8. When you have a signal, turn the dish assembly back and forth
very slightly until the signal strength bar displays the strongest
possible signal strength. Tighten the mast clamp bolts. Then,
loosen the elevation bolts and adjust the elevation of the dish up
and down slightly until the signal strength bar displays a strong
signal. Do not adjust skew. Tighten all the bolts in the dish
assembly so that the dish cannot be moved.
9. When you have the strongest possible signal, press the CANCEL
button on the remote to exit the Point Dish/Signal menu. The
receiver displays an Attention message asking whether the
installation is complete. If the answer is yes, select the Yes
option. The receiver will begin taking a software upgrade. You
will see a Warning that “Vital program information will now be
downloaded into your receiver.” You will also see a status bar
showing the progress of this upgrade.
Page 84
Installing a Legacy DISH 500 System
If the answer is no, you will need to repoint your dish following the
preceding steps until the mounting and positioning is complete and
you do have the “locked” indication.
10. When the software upgrade is complete, you will see a message that
your receiver’s memory is being upgraded.
While this message is displaying, the green power light on the
receiver’s front panel will blink. Do not disturb the receiver while the
green light is blinking.
11. When the software upgrade finishes, you need to return to the Point
Dish/Signal screen. To do this, open the Main Menu and press 6-11 on the remote.
12. Select Check Switch from the Point Dish/Signal menu. When
the Check Switch menu opens, select Check. The receiver will
check your satellite system. After the system checks your installation,
an Installation Summary screen will appear. Verify that the 500
Twin is displayed, and the 119 and 110 satellites are verified. Select
OK.
13. At the Point Dish/Signal menu, select the 110 West option and
verify that you have a green signal strength bar with a locked signal.
•
If there is no signal strength on 110 West, check your
connections and select Check Switch again. If there is still no
signal, confirm that your skew angle is correct, and start over
with step #6.
•
If the signal from the 110 West satellite is weak and you do not
see a green signal strength bar, repeat steps #5, #7, and #8 to finetune the dish until you have the best attainable signal strength for
both the 119 West and 110 West satellites.
14. Connect any other receivers in the system. Verify signal reception
from the Point Dish/Signal menu, allow the receivers to take a
software upgrade from the satellite, and then run Check Switch to
verify the signal from all satellites.
If you will be installing a multi-dish system, follow the instructions
that begin below. If not, you can skip to the section that begins on
page 94 titled Grounding the System.

INSTALLING A LEGACY MULTIPLE DISH SYSTEM
When you have installed the DISH 500 with its Legacy LNBF(s), you
can add a DISH 300 with a Legacy LNBF to your system as follows
(please see the section titled Alternate Legacy Wiring Diagrams for
more information on wiring the system).
1. Turn on the television and receiver. You should see the Point
Dish/Signal menu. If you do not, open the Main Menu and press
6-1-1 on the remote.
2. On the Point Dish and Signal Strength menu, use the Up/
Down/Left/Right arrow buttons to move the highlight to the
Satellite field and choose the satellite at which you would like to
aim, for example 61.5.
3. Enter your zip code in the ZIP Code field.
Azimuth:
Elevation:
4. The receiver displays the azimuth and elevation angles on the
menu. Write down these numbers as you will use them later in
this procedure.
5. Using these azimuth, and elevation angles, find a location for the
satellite dish. Then, use the elevation angle to find out how high
the satellite is in the sky from your location. Use the azimuth
angle to find out where the satellite is along the horizon (South,
Southwest). Make sure nothing blocks the line of sight to the
satellites.
6. Mount the satellite dish following the instructions that came with
it. Connect the RG-6 cable directly from the LNBF to the
Satellite In port on the receiver’s back panel. Make sure there
are no multi-dish switches between the LNBF and the receiver.
7. When the dish is mounted, you should still be on the Point
Dish/Signal menu. If not, open the Main Menu and press 6-1-1
on the remote.
8. Look at the Signal Strength bar. Turn the dish back and forth
very slowly, until the signal strength bar turns green.This shows
that you have found the signal.
Note: If you cannot find the signal, turn the dish back to the
original azimuth setting. Then, loosen both elevation bolts just
enough to be able to tilt the dish.
Page 86
Installing a Legacy Multiple Dish System
9. Tilt the dish up by two degrees, and then tighten both bolts. Now, try
turning the dish back and forth again. Repeat these steps, raising and
lowering the elevation, until you find the satellite signal.
10. When you have a signal, turn the dish assembly back and forth very
slightly until the signal strength bar displays the strongest possible
signal strength. Tighten the mast clamp bolts. Then, loosen the
elevation bolts and adjust the elevation of the dish up and down
slightly until the signal strength bar displays a strong signal. Tighten
all the bolts in the dish assembly so that the dish cannot be moved.
11. Mark the final locations on the mast and mounting bracket with a
permanent marker. This assists you later if you have to realign the
dish because of movement due to wind or weather. Do not scratch the
painted surfaces to mark them. This will cause rusting.
12. Connect the LNBFs to the switch(es) using the instructions that came
with your switches. (See the Alternate Wiring diagrams on page 88
for more information.)
13. Connect the switch(es) to the receiver using the instructions that came

Installation Instructions
GROUNDING THE SYSTEM
After you have installed either the DishPro or Legacy system, you
must ground the system, and then connect each receiver to a telephone
line, following these instructions.
INSTALLING THE GROUND BLOCK
A properly grounded multi-dish switch can take the place
of a ground block. The following instructions apply to a
block or a switch.
You may want to install the ground block onto the side of the
building, or on some other sturdy structure as close as possible to the
power entry ground. Make sure that the location is stable, and that you
fasten the ground block tightly to the surface. As stated in Article 82040 of the National Electrical Code (NEC), locate the ground block as
close as possible to the power entry ground.
RUNNING THE COAXIAL CABLES TO THE GROUND
BLOCK OR SWITCH
1. Mount the ground block or switch so that its connections are
horizontal. This helps keep moisture from leaking into the
connections. Using the shortest path possible, run the coaxial
cable(s) from the LNBF(s) to the input(s) on the ground block or
switch.
2. Put a drip loop in each cable to allow moisture to drip from the
cable before it runs into the ground block or switch.
3. Run the ground wire from the ground block or switch to the
power entry ground of the building in accordance with the
National Electrical Code (NEC) and all local electrical codes.
Page 94
Grounding the System
A ground wire must always be a single piece of wire. Never
splice two wires together for a ground. Corrosion and
weathering can lead to a poor connection at the splice, making
the ground ineffective and dangerous. If you cut the ground
wire too short, replace it with a single wire cut to the correct
length.
4. Use cable clips to attach the cable to the side of the building. This
helps prevent damage.
RUNNING THE COAXIAL CABLE(S) TO THE RECEIVER(S)
1. Using the shortest path possible, run the coaxial cable(s) from the
ground block or switch to the satellite receiver(s). Do not kink or
pinch any cable. Cables should be bent only in gentle curves.
Do not use a longer cable between the satellite dish and the
LNBF than is specified in the DishPro or Legacy system
installation instructions. In the case of a Legacy system, you
may have to install a line amplifier to boost the satellite signal.
Otherwise, the system is more likely to lose the signal during
periods of rain, snow, or heavy cloud cover. If your system
requires more cable than the limit specified in these installation
instructions, you should consider having the system
professionally installed.
2. Put a drip loop in each cable at a point before it enters the building. A
drip loop allows moisture to drip from the cable before it runs into the
building.
Before drilling any holes in the wall or roof of your
building, make sure that there are no wires or pipes in the
area of the holes. If you are not comfortable doing this,
contact a professional in your area. Follow all safety
instructions and building codes.
3. Locate each receiver inside the building, against or near an outside
wall. Then drill a hole through the outer wall to pass a cable inside the
building. If a receiver is located in an interior room, run a cable
through the outside wall, and into an attic, basement, or crawl space
in order to reach the receiver.
4. Seal all holes that you drill in the building with silicone or other
weatherproof sealant after installation. Once each cable is inside the
building, you may attach it to a wall receptacle or directly to a
receiver.
Tighten the back panel coaxial cable connections only by
hand. Using a wrench may over-tighten the connections,
causing damage. Such damage is not covered by the Limited
Warranty in the User Guide that came with the system.
lPage 95
Chapter 4
Installation Instructions
CONNECTING EACH RECEIVER TO A TELEPHONE LINE
You must keep each receiver connected to an active telephone line.
Otherwise, you may not be able to order pay per view programs or use
all of the DISH Interactive features. Run a telephone cable with a
standard RJ-11 connector from each receiver’s back panel Phone Jack
to an active telephone connection.
Tip: If you have
the receiver
connected to a
Digital Subscriber Line
(DSL) on the
phone line, you
may need to
install a DSL
filter between
the receiver
and the telephone jack.
You can obtain
the filter from
your DSL provider.
Note: You may be able to use a wireless telephone extender. How-
ever, this may not support all the features of some receivers.
You must also set up each receiver for your telephone system (touchtone or rotary/pulse), and set a telephone number prefix, if you need a
prefix to make an outside call.
1. Display the Installation and Setup menu.
2. Select the Telephone System option to display the Telephone
System Setup menu.
3. Select the Touch Tone or the Rotary/Pulse option in the Phone
Type list.
Note: Usually, you need a telephone number prefix only for
business installations. For most residential installations, all you
need to do is set the telephone system type. The default setting of
No Prefix will allow correct dialing. If this is the case, select the
Save option to save the above setting, and stop here. If you do
need to set a prefix, then instead of selecting the Save option, go
on to step 4.
4. Move the highlight to the No Prefix or the Prefix code option in
the Outside Line Prefix list. Press the Select button to select the
highlighted option.
Page 96
Connecting Each Receiver to a Telephone Line
5. If you selected the No Prefix option, highlight Save to finish.
If you selected the Prefix code option, the receiver displays two

USING THE REMOTE CONTROL
What Is
Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
You cannot find the
remote control.
N/A
Use the receiver front panel Control Buttons to control the
receiver until you find the remote. If the remote control is
permanently lost or too damaged to use, call the Service Center to
order a replacement.
When you press a button
on the remote control, the
receiver does not do what
you expect.
The remote control may be missing
batteries, the batteries may be
incorrectly placed in the remote, or
the batteries may be weak or dead.
If the batteries are missing or dead, insert fresh AAA-size batteries.
If the remote has fresh batteries, check whether they are placed
according to the label diagram. If not, remove them and place
correctly.
When you press the
remote control Power
button to turn the receiver
ON, the receiver front
panel Power light does
not light up.
Other lights are too bright.
Try other remote control buttons to see if the receiver is responding.
Replace the remote batteries with fresh ones.
You use a pyramid type IR
extender (not a “mouse
tail”), and it does not seem
to work.
The IR sensor on the extender that
receives the remote control signals
may not be facing the remote
control.
The IR cable on the extender that
sends the signal to the receiver may
not be right in front of the IR sensor
on the receiver front panel.
Remote control not operating
properly or the batteries are weak or
dead.
The receiver power cord not plugged
into a power outlet, or there may be
a problem with the power.
Check that the receiver power cord is not damaged, and that the
plug is inserted correctly into the outlet.
Make sure that the extender that receives the signal from the remote
control is facing the right way, so that the IR sensor can receive the
remote control signals.
Make sure that the IR cable on the extender that sends the signal to
the receiver is right in front of the IR sensor on the receiver front
panel, so that the receiver IR sensor can receive the signals.
If doing the above does not solve the problem, contact the
manufacturer of the extenders for assistance.

HEARING A PROGRAM
What Is
Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
The receiver front panel
Power light is on and
there is a good picture on
the TV set, but you do not
hear any sound.
You may have muted the sound, or
set the volume so low that you
cannot hear it.
The audio connections may not be
properly connected.
Check the volume level on the TV or audio device. Turn off the
mute or turn up the volume, as required.
Check the audio connectors and cables from the receiver to the TV
or the sound system.
Check the TV speakers or the sound system.
You hear a foreign
language with a program.
You may have set the receiver to
select an alternate audio language.
Use the Alternate Audio Language menu to select the language
that you prefer.
WATCHING A PROGRAM
What Is
Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
The TV set may not be working
properly.
If the TV and the receiver are
working properly, there may be
interference with the satellite signal.
The TV may be wired to the wrong
input.
Make sure that the TV set is plugged into an electrical outlet. Make
sure the outlet has electrical power. Make sure that the TV is turned
on. If the receiver is connected to the TV using only the RF or VHF
connections, make sure that the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4
(whichever works best
in your area) and that the receiver back panel Channel 3/4
Switch is set to the same channel as the TV.
Make sure that the TV brightness and contrast are adjusted
correctly.
Make sure that the TV is connected properly to the receiver.
Make sure that the TV’s text mode and closed captioned features
are turned off. Set the TV to SVIDEO or VIDEO input.
Check that the system has been installed correctly. Make sure that
all required coaxial cables are in place, and check that all cable
connectors
are tight and dry (for outdoor cables).
Make sure that the satellite dish has a clear line of sight to the
satellite. Check whether branches or leaves have grown into the line
of sight.
Make sure that the satellite dish is aimed at the satellite. Check the
strength of the signal using the Point Dish and Signal Strength
menu. Consult your installer to re-aim the dish, if necessary, to
obtain the maximum possible signal strength.
Note the local weather conditions. Heavy rain, snow, or cloud cover
may be interfering with transmission of the satellite signal. Remove
any snow or other debris which may have collected on the satellite
dish.
The TV set may not be working
properly.
If the receiver is connected to the TV
using only the RF or VHF
connections, there may be a strong
local broadcast on the same channel,
or a channel adjacent to the one to
which the TV is tuned.
There may be interference from
other nearby electrical devices (such
as cellular telephones, computers,
microwave ovens, radios, stereos, or
TVs).
Make sure that the TV brightness and contrast are adjusted
correctly, and that the TV is working properly.
Make sure that the TV is connected properly to the receiver.
Check other nearby electrical devices as possible sources of
interference. Check that all required coaxial cables are in place.
Check for moisture or water leaking into all connections. Dry them
out if needed, then seal them with coaxial cable sealant. Check the
dish-to-receiver cable run length; if it is over 100 feet, call your
dealer or installer.
A “black box” fills almost
all of the TV screen.
You may have turned on the Closed
Captioned feature on the TV, and put
that feature into Text mode.
Using the TV remote control and/or menus displayed by the TV
(not the receiver remote control or the menus displayed by the
receiver), turn off the closed captioned feature.
The TV screen is all blue.
You may have connected the
receiver to an input on the TV that is
incorrect for the signal output from
the receiver.
Check your TV owner’s manual for the correct TV input to use for
the signal output from the receiver.
The receiver front panel
Power light is on, but the
TV image:
is black (no picture),
is frozen,
has breakups,
has “snow,” or
shows small squares of
various colors.
The receiver front panel
Power light is on, and
there is a picture on the

Troubleshooting Tables
USING THE MENUS
What Is
Happening
You were using a menu,
and it suddenly closed.
Possible Reason
The receiver has a time-out feature
that closes any menu after several
minutes of no activity. This will
discard any changes you have made,
but otherwise does no harm to the
receiver.
What to Do
Start over again.
USING THE PROGRAM GUIDE OR THE BROWSE BANNER
What Is
Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
In the Program Guide,
some channels have a red
background.
Red means that you have not bought
the program. You must buy a
channel before you can tune the
receiver to it.
If you want to buy a channel, call the Customer Service Center.
You try to display future
programs in the Program
Guide or Browse
Banner, but find you
cannot.
The Program Guide and Browse
Banner can display programs
scheduled for an extended, but not
unlimited time beyond the present.
Try displaying the Program Guide again later. By that time, it
may show programs for the time and date you want.
You try to display
programs that have ended

channels are missing.
You may have applied a Favorite
List other than the list named All
Chan.
You may have set up the Program
Guide so that when the receiver is
locked, the Guide hides adult
channels.
If your setup includes a multi-dish
switch, you may need to do the
Check Switch procedure.
You can change the applied Favorite List while using the Program
Guide, by pressing the remote control Guide button. You can
choose another custom Favorite List, the All Chan list, which
includes all the channels, or the All Sub list, which includes all
subscribed channels. Unlock the receiver for the Program Guide
to display adult channels.
Do the Check Switch procedure (see the installation instructions
for details).
Possible Reason
What to Do
USING LOCKS
What Is
Happening
You set a lock (for
example, a lock on
programs by ratings), but
the lock does not take
effect.
You may not have locked the
receiver.
You must lock the receiver to apply any lock that you have set.
You forgot the password,
so that you are unable to
unlock the receiver.
You may not have written down the

CHANGING CHANNELS
What Is
Happening
You enter a desired
channel number. The
channel changes, but the
new channel is not exactly
the channel you entered.
You are scanning up or
down through the
channels, and the receiver
is skipping channels that
you know you have
bought.
Possible Reason
You may have made a mistake
entering the channel number, or the
channel number you entered may be
invalid.
If so, the channel displayed is the
closest possible to the channel you
entered.
If you entered the number for a
channel that you have not bought,
the receiver will change to the
channel and allow you to buy the
channel or display a message.
If a Favorite List other than All
Chan is applied, the receiver will
skip channels that are not on the
applied list.
If you have set up the Program
Guide to hide adult channels and
the receiver is locked, the receiver
will skip such channels.
What to Do
Carefully retry entering the channel number you want.
Press the remote control Recall button to return to the previous
channel number. Select All Chan as the active Favorite List.
Unlock the receiver so that it does not skip adult channels.
If you want to buy a channel, call the Customer Service Center.

Appendix A
INSTALLING A RECEIVER INTO AN EXISTING SYSTEM
These instructions guide you through the installation of your new DishPro
satellite receiver in an existing system where your satellite dish(es) has
already been installed and pointed for the strongest possible signal. If your
dish antenna(s) is not already installed, you will need to follow the
Installation Instructions found in Chapter 4.
There are two families of satellite receivers that are covered by these
installation instructions.
• DishPro Receivers which have the DishPro logo shown below.
•
Legacy receivers which do not have the DishPro logo.
If you are installing a DishPro receiver into one of the dish antenna
systems listed below, go to step 1 under Procedure to start your
installation:
• DishPro receiver into a dish antenna system with DishPro LNBFs and
switches.
• DishPro receiver into a dish antenna system with Legacy LNBFs and
switches.
If you are installing a Legacy receiver into a dish antenna system with
Legacy LNBs and switches, complete the installation using the
instructions which came with the Legacy receiver as well as instructions
which came with the Legacy LNBs and switches.
Important: If are trying to install a Legacy receiver (no DishPro logo)
into an existing system with DishPro LNBFs and switches, you will need
a DishPro Adapter. For more information on this, contact your DISH
Network retailer or call 1-800-333-DISH (3474) for more information.
They will give you the instructions for doing this installation with the
DishPro Adapter.
Page 113
Appendix A
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Connect an RG-6 coaxial cable (see notes below) from the Satellite In
port on the receiver's back panel to an available port on your switch or
LNBF in your existing system. See Chapter 4 wiring diagrams for
appropriate receiver connections in your system. See Grounding the
System in Chapter 4 for detailed cabling instructions.
Note: If you are installing a DishPro receiver into a system with
DishPro LNBFs (and/or switches), you can have as much as 200 feet
of cable between the LNBF and the receiver. However, you must use
only RG-6 coaxial cables rated for 950 to 2150 MHz. Some cables
may say "Swept tested for 2150 MHz." If you have any doubt about
this, ask your Dish retailer, or look on the container the cable came in.
Do not use cable company TV cables or cables from other satellite
TV systems not rated for 950-2150 MHz. These other cables may
cause signal loss. Do not use existing cables such as RG-59. Also, be
sure that any outdoor connections are made using waterproof Fconnectors.
Note: If you are installing the DishPro receiver into a system with
Legacy LNBFs and/or switches (that do not have a DishPro logo),
you can have as much as 100 feet of cable between the LNBF and the
receiver. However, you must use only RG-6 cable - do not use
existing cables such as RG-59. Also, be sure that any outdoor
connections are made using waterproof F-connectors.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Warning: Tighten all the coaxial cable connections only by hand.
Using a wrench may over-tighten the connections, causing damage.
Such damage is not covered by the Limited warranty.
Connect a coaxial cable from the TV Set Out connection on your
receiver to your television's RF tuner input. Check to see that the
Channel 3/4 switch on the new receiver's back panel is set to the same
channel 3 or 4 as your TV.
Plug in the receiver's power cord. Make sure both the receiver and TV
are turned on.
You should see the Point Dish/Signal menu in the new receiver. If
you do not, open the Main Menu, by pressing Menu followed by 61-1 on the remote.
Select Check Switch. An Attention screen will open. Select Check
to run Check Switch.
When Check Switch is complete, you will see an Installation Summary screen. If the screen shows the correct switch and the message
"Satellite reception verified" for all satellites in your system, go to
step 7. If not:
•
If the Installation Summary screen does not detect all of the
satellites your system should be receiving:
a. Check and retighten (by hand) the cable connections between
your receiver, LNBFs and switches in your system. Then
press Retest to rerun Check Switch again. If this does not
work, do step b below.
Page 114
Installation Instructions
b. If your receiver is connected to a DishPro LNB or switch, but
the DishPro switch/LNB is not indicated in the Installation
Summary screen and satellite signals are missing, press OK to
return to the Point Dish/Signal screen and follow the
instructions below under Alternate Installation Procedure for
DishPro Systems below.
7. Select OK to return to the Point Dish/Signal screen. Then select
Cancel to exit the Point Dish/Signal screen.
8. An Attention screen will open. This screen asks if the mounting and
positioning of your dish is complete with a "Locked" indication in the
Point Dish/Signal screen. Since your system is already installed
and your dish is pointed for the strongest possible signal strength, you
can select Yes.
9. The receiver will begin taking a software upgrade. You will see the
message shown below.
A progress bar at the bottom of the screen will show how the software
upgrade is progressing. Once the software upgrade is complete, you
will see a second message that the receiver's memory is now being
programmed.
This message may disappear, your screen may go blank for a few
minutes, and the green light may continue to blink. This is normal and
does not indicate a problem with the receiver.
10. When the software upgrade is complete, press View and you should
now be able to watch TV programming. To activate your programming on this newly installed receiver, call 1-800-333-DISH (3474).
Page 115
Appendix A
ALTERNATE INSTALLATION PROCEDURES FOR DISHPRO SYSTEMS
The following instructions are to be used to connect the receiver directly
to a DishPro LNBF which allows the receiver to take a software upgrade
from the satellite. After taking the software upgrade, the installation can
be completed. This procedure assumes that you have already completed
steps 1 through 6 from the preceding instructions.
1. Connect an RG-6 coaxial cable from the Satellite In port on the
receiver's back panel directly to any LNBF on a dish that has been
installed and pointed for the strongest possible signal. Make sure
there are no switches between the LNBF and the receiver (see
“Grounding the System” on page 94 for detailed cabling instructions).
You may want to use an in-line cable connector to bypass a switch. If
your system is already connected this way, go to the next step.
2. You should see the Point Dish/Signal menu in the new receiver. If
you do not, open the Main Menu, by pressing Menu followed by 61-1 on the remote.
Note: Your receiver and TV should already be connected and
powered on.
3. Look to make sure the number under Transponder is an odd number higher than 10 (for example, 11, 13, or 15) and you see a green
signal strength bar. If you do not see an odd number higher than 10,
move the highlight to the box under Transponder and use the Up or
Down arrow on the remote to change the number until it is an odd
number higher than 10 and you see a green signal strength bar. If you
are unable to get a green signal strength bar:
a. If you see the message Wrong Sat and the signal strength bar is
red, move the check mark in the Point Dish/Signal menu to the
satellite location indicated below the bar and the bar should turn
green.
b. If you do not see a signal strength bar on any odd transponder,
temporarily shorten the cable between the LNBF and the receiver
to 100 feet or less and then repeat step 3.
4. Once you have a green signal strength bar, press Cancel on the
remote to exit the Point Dish/Signal screen.
5. An Attention screen will open. This screen asks if the mounting and
positioning of your dish is complete with a Locked indication in the
Point Dish/Signal screen. Since your system is already installed
and your dish is pointed for the strongest possible signal strength, you
can select Yes.
Page 116
Alternate Installation Procedures for DishPro Systems
6. The receiver will begin taking a software upgrade. You will see the
message shown below.
7. When the software upgrade is complete, you will need to go back to
the Point Dish/Signal screen. To do this, open the Main Menu by
pressing Menu and then 6-1-1 on the remote.
8. If you removed any switches in step #1, reconnect them now, and
connect the Satellite In port on the receiver's back panel to any available receiver port on your switch. (See the wiring diagrams in Chapter
4 for more details.) If you shortened the cable between the LNBF and
your receiver as requested in step 3.b, you can now reinstall cable
that's up to 200 feet in length between the LNBF and the receiver.
9. Select Check Switch. An Attention screen will open. Select Check
to run Check Switch.
10. A second Attention screen will open asking you to please wait while
your switch installation is being checked.
11. When Check Switch is complete, you will see an Installation
Summary screen. Make sure the screen shows the correct switch and
the message “Satellite reception verified” for all satellites in your system.

shipping rates (additional charges may apply outside of the continental US). This
fee will be charged to your billing account or your valid credit card.
If you do not ship the defective equipment to EchoStar within ten days after
receiving the replacement, your billing account or credit card will be charged the
market price of the replacement. If you return the defective equipment after ten
days, you will receive a full refund less an administrative fee.
If your equipment is out of warranty and can be repaired your billing account or
credit card will be charged the standard repair fee for the replacement. If damage
to the defective equipment is found, which EchoStar in its sole discretion determines has voided the warranty, or makes the equipment unrepairable, billing
account or credit card will be charged the market price of the replacement.
POST RECEIPT EXCHANGE PROGRAM
You may choose to ship the equipment to us at your cost. To provide faster service, upon receipt of your equipment you will be shipped a replacement. Your
original equipment will not be available for return.
The equipment you return will be checked to verify whether it is covered under
this warranty. If the defective equipment is covered under this warranty, it will be
replaced and shipped back to you at no additional cost (additional charges may
apply outside of the continental US).
If your equipment is out of warranty and can be repaired your billing account or
credit card will be charged the standard repair fee for the replacement. If damage
to the defective equipment is found, which EchoStar in its sole discretion determines has voided the warranty, or makes the equipment unrepairable, your billing
account or credit card will be charged the market price of the replacement.

1.
THE DISH NETWORK SERVICE.
A. Services Defined. DISH Network offers a wide variety of video and audio
programming and other services and we are constantly striving to add new services to our
lineup. For purposes of this Agreement the term “Services” shall mean the programming
available on DISH Network (whether subscription based or pay per view based) and any
other services that we may provide to consumers either now or in the future. For
purposes of this Agreement the terms “You” or “Your” refer to you, the DISH Network
subscriber.
Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, you
B. Programming Changes.
may change your programming selection at any time by notifying us. A fee may apply to
such changes (Change of Service Fee). In addition, you may be charged a fee (Service
Access Fee) if you fail to subscribe to one of DISH Network’s basic programming
packages which include America’s Top 50, America’s Top 100/CD, America’s Top 150,
DISH Latino or DISH Latino Dos.
Page 122
Residential Customer Agreement
C. Programming Availability. Certain Services transmitted by us, including but
not limited to some subscription Services, sporting events and broadcast network Services,
may be blacked out in your area of reception. If you circumvent or attempt to circumvent
any of these blackouts, you may be subject to legal action. You must be at least 18 years of
age, or the applicable age of majority where you reside, in order to receive adult-oriented
programming services.
D. Ordering Pay Per View. You may order DISH Network pay-per-view
Services by using your on-screen Program Guide and remote control unit to select the
movies and other events we offer. To order DISH Network pay-per-view Services, your
DISH Network DBS digital receiver must be connected to a telephone outlet. You may
also order DISH Network special events and pay-per-view Services over the telephone by
calling the Customer Service Center or by using our automated system through the
following toll free numbers:
1-877-778-MOVI (6684) for ordering movies
1-877-363-EVNT (3868) for ordering events
1-877-778-ADLT (2358) for ordering adult movies
A small fee will apply for use of the automated system (Pay-Per-View Automated Fee) or
the Customer Service Center (Pay-Per-View Fee).
E. Private Viewing. DISH Network provides Services to you for your private
home viewing, use and enjoyment. You agree that the Services provided will not be
viewed outside of your private residence. You are permitted to exhibit the Services solely
in your private residence and not in any other areas. The Services may not be rebroadcast,
transmitted, recorded or performed, nor may admission be charged for listening to or
viewing any Services provided by us. If we later determine that you utilized your DISH
Network Equipment (including any additional DISH Network receivers) or sold, leased or
otherwise gave possession of the same to a third party who you knew or reasonably should
have known intended to use it to permit the viewing of the Services in a commercial
establishment or any other area open to the public, we may terminate the Services and in
addition to all other applicable fees, you agree to pay us the difference between the price
actually paid for the Services and the full commercial rate for such Services, regardless of
whether we have or had the commercial rights to such Services. The payment of that
amount and/or the termination of Services shall not prejudice our ability to exercise any
other rights and remedies we may have under this Agreement, at law, in equity, or
otherwise.
F. Additional Receivers. To independently tune additional televisions within
your home, a separate DISH Network receiver is required for each television. DISH
Network will allow you to place up to five additional receivers on your account. Each
additional receiver would be authorized to receive the same Services as your initial
receiver. DISH Network will charge you a reduced monthly fee (Additional Receiver
Authorization Fee) for each additional receiver added to your account. This option is only
available if your initial DISH Network receiver and all additional receiver(s) are located at
the same residence and are continuously connected to the same telephone line. If you
desire to receive Services at two different locations, you must open a separate account for
each location. You agree that you will not directly or indirectly use a single account for the
purpose of authorizing Services for multiple DISH Network receivers that are not all
located in the same residence and connected to the same phone line. If we later determine
that you did, we may terminate your Services and, in addition to all other applicable fees,
you agree to pay us the difference between the amounts actually received by us and the full
retail price for the Services authorized for each DISH Network DBS receiver on the
account, whether owned by you or not. The payment of that amount and/or the termination
of Services shall not prejudice our ability to exercise any other rights and remedies we may
have under this Agreement, at law, in equity, or otherwise.
Page 123
Appendix B
G. Changes in Services offered.
DISH Network reserves the right to change the
Services that we offer, and our prices or fees related to such Services at any time. If the
change affects you, we will provide you notice of the change and its effective date. The
notice may be provided on your billing statement or by other communication permitted
under Section 9B. In the event of a change in the contents of any programming,
programming packages or other Services, you understand and agree that we have no
obligation to replace or supplement the programming, programming packages or other
Services previously offered that have been deleted, rearranged or otherwise changed. You
further understand and agree you will not be entitled to any refund because of a change in
the contents of any programming, programming packages, or other Services previously
offered.
H. Multi-Month Subscriptions. For multi-month subscriptions, you may
downgrade the Services only at the time of renewal. You may not downgrade the Services
during the term of the multi-month subscription.
2.
BILLING POLICIES AND PAYMENTS
FOR SERVICES.
A. You agree to pay all amounts billed for Services and to pay all taxes, fees and
other charges, if any, which are now or may in the future be assessed on the Services you
receive from us. Unless you prepay for a multi-month subscription to Services, we will
bill you each month, in advance, for Services ordered by you or anyone who uses your
DISH Network Equipment, whether with or without your permission, until you cancel the
Services. The bills you receive will show the total amount due, the payment due date,
payments, credits, purchases and other charges to your account.
B. You agree to pay us in full monthly by the payment due date for the Services
and for any other charges due us, including any fees set forth in this Section 2. Payment of
your bill after the due date will result in you paying us a Late Payment Fee. Other fees and
charges may also be assessed. If partial payments are made, they will be applied first to
the oldest outstanding bill. If you send checks or money orders marked “payment in full,”
we can accept them without losing any of our rights to collect any other amounts owed by
you, notwithstanding your characterization of the payment. DISH Network does not
extend credit to our customers, and the Late Payment Fee is not interest, a credit service
charge or a finance charge. You understand and agree that in the case of late payment or
nonpayment for any Services ordered by you or for any of the charges stated below, we
may report such late payment or nonpayment to credit reporting agencies. If you do not
pay your bill by the due date, we have the right to disconnect your Services at any time
thereafter, in our sole discretion. DISH Network may require you to pay all past due
charges, a Reconnect Fee, a deposit equal to a minimum of one month's advance charges
and all outstanding balances accrued through the date of deactivation, before we
reconnect your Services. Deposits will not be held segregated from other funds and shall
not earn or accrue interest.
C. If you at any time fail, neglect, or refuse to make timely payments hereunder, or
if a petition in bankruptcy shall be filed on your behalf or against you, or if you take
advantage of any insolvency law or become insolvent or make an assignment for the
benefit of creditors, or if a receiver, liquidator, or trustee is appointed for your property or
affairs, we shall be wholly relieved from our obligations hereunder.
Page 124
Residential Customer Agreement
D. If you paid for an annual or other multi-month subscription to any Services and
your account is past due for any amounts owed to us, at our option we may suspend any or
all Service until payment is received, and/or convert your annual or other multi-month
subscription to a monthly subscription. If we convert your multi-month subscription to a
monthly subscription, we will first apply the amount you paid for your multi-month
subscription to any past due amounts and then any remaining amounts to future
obligations. If we elect to offset the amount paid for the remaining portion of a multimonth subscription against amounts past due, you agree to pay, in addition to all other
applicable fees, the Offset Fee set forth below for each month and partial month that the
multi-month subscription was previously received.
E. If we use a collection agency or attorney to collect money you owe us or to
assert any other right which we may have against you, you agree to pay the reasonable
costs of collection or other action. These costs might include, but are not limited to, the
costs of a collection agency, reasonable attorney's fees and court costs. If there are billing
errors or other requests for credit, you can contact our Customer Service Center by
telephone or in writing. You must contact us within sixty (60) days of the time you receive
the billing statement for which you are seeking corrections. Failure to timely notify us of a
dispute shall constitute acceptance of the bill. Undisputed portions of the billing statement
must be paid before the next billing statement is issued to avoid an administrative fee for
late payment. All payments for Services must be made directly by you to us. DISH
Network shall have no obligation to provide Services for which payment is made by you to
a third party.
F. In addition to the amounts due for Services, you agree to pay the fees referenced
below (“Fees”) when applicable. DISH Network reserves the right to increase these Fees
or add additional Fees in the future, in our sole discretion.

3.
CANCELLATION OF SERVICE.
A. Your Service will continue until cancelled as provided for herein. Your
subscription will be automatically renewed unless you contact us to cancel as provided for
in the next paragraph.
B. You have the right to cancel your Service for any reason at any time by notifying
us via telephone or in writing at the phone number or address set forth on page 1, above.
Please be aware that certain promotional offers have a minimum subscription commitment
(usually 12 months) and if you cancel your service prior to the expiration of that
commitment, certain early termination fees may apply.
Page 125
Appendix B
C. DISH Network has the right to terminate your Services at any time without
providing notice to you if: (i) you fail to pay your bill when it is due; (ii) we receive
confirmation that you have received the Services, or any part of the Services without
paying for them; or (iii) you otherwise violate the terms of this Agreement.
D. If you Service is canceled for any reason, you are still responsible for payment
of all outstanding balances accrued, including any applicable Fees.
E. You understand that charges for Services, once charged to your account, are
nonrefundable. For monthly subscriptions, the cancellation will be effective at the end of
the period covered by the last monthly bill. No refunds or credits will be provided in
connection with the cancellation of monthly subscriptions. For annual or other multimonth subscriptions, the cancellation will be effective as of the date the multi-month
subscription expires. Because you are receiving a discounted price in exchange for your
agreement to pay for your services on an annual or other multi-month basis, in the event
you cancel the Services prior to expiration of your multi-month subscription, you
understand and agree that you are not entitled to any refund or credit for the unused
portions of the multi-month subscription and that we have the right to retain any prepaid
monies as liquidated damages.
4.
EQUIPMENT.
A. In order to receive the Services it will be necessary for you to purchase or lease
certain reception equipment consisting primarily of a DISH Network compatible satellite
receiver, a satellite antenna, LNBF unit and remote control (“Equipment”). You will also
be provided with a conditional access card (“Smart Card”) that is inserted into your
satellite receiver. The Smart Card remains the property of EchoStar Communications
Corporation, the corporate parent of DISH Network and any tampering or other
unauthorized modification to the Smart Card is strictly prohibited and may result in, and
subject you to, legal action. You agree to return the Smart Card to us upon request.
B. Smart Cards are nontransferable. Your Smart Card will only work in the DISH
Network receiver to which it was assigned by DISH Network. If you report to the
Customer Service Center that your Smart Card was lost, damaged, defective or stolen we
will replace it, as long as there is no evidence of unauthorized tampering or modification.
A replacement fee will apply. In addition, in order to minimize downtime for your
Equipment, DISH Network will, upon your request, deliver a replacement Smart Card to
you via overnight delivery. Our Overnight Delivery Fee will apply.
C. DISH Network reserves the right to alter software in your DISH Network
receiver, an provide content to PVR products, through periodic downloads. DISH
Network will use commercially reasonable efforts to schedule these downloads in a
manner that result in the least amount of interference with or interruption to your Service.
D. Your DISH Network receiver contains certain components and software which
are proprietary to DISH Network. You agree that you will not try to reverse-engineer,
decompile or disassemble any software or hardware contained within your receiver or our
Smart Card. Such actions are strictly prohibited and may result in the termination of your
Services and/or legal action.
E. For proper operation of your Equipment, DISH Network requires that you
connect each DISH Network receiver on your account to a telephone line. For accounts
containing multiple receivers, each receiver must be connected to the same telephone line.
F. If your DISH Network Equipment is stolen or otherwise removed from your
premises without your authorization, you must notify our Customer Service Center
immediately, but in any event not more than three (3) business days after such removal to
avoid liability for payment for unauthorized use of the DISH Network Equipment. You
will not be liable for unauthorized use after we have received your timely notification.
Page 126
Residential Customer Agreement
5.
LEASED EQUIPMENT.
A. If you decide to lease your Equipment from DISH Network, such Equipment
shall at all times remain the sole and exclusive property of DISH Network and we will
have the right, at our discretion, to replace it with new or reconditioned equipment and to
remove the equipment upon termination of Services. None of the equipment shall be
deemed fixtures or part of your realty. Our ownership of the equipment may be displayed
by notice contained on the equipment. You shall have no right to pledge, sell, mortgage,
give away or remove, relocate, alter or tamper with the equipment (or any notice of our
ownership thereon) at any time. Any reinstallation, return of or change in location of the
equipment shall be performed by us at the service rates in effect at the time of service. You
shall not attach any electrical or other devices to or otherwise alter the equipment without
our prior written consent. DISH Network shall have the right to make such filings as are
necessary to evidence our ownership rights in the equipment, and you agree to execute any
and all documents as are necessary for us to make such filings. Upon termination of
Services, you must notify our Customer Service Center to schedule the return the
Equipment.
B. You shall notify us promptly of any defect in, damage to, or accident involving
the equipment. All maintenance and repair of the equipment shall be performed by us or
our designees. DISH Network may charge you for any repairs that are necessitated by any
damage to, or misuse of, the Equipment.
6.
TRANSFER OF ACCOUNT, SERVICES
OR EQUIPMENT.
DISH Network may sell, assign or transfer your account to a third party without
notice to you. You may not assign or transfer your Services without our written consent
which will not be unreasonably withheld. We may, however, refuse to allow you to assign
or transfer your Services if you lease your Equipment or if your account has an outstanding
balance.
7.
LIMITATION OF OUR LIABILITY.
A. WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INTERRUPTIONS IN SERVICE OR
LIABLE FOR ANY DELAY OR FAILURE TO PERFORM, IF SUCH DELAY OR
NONPERFORMANCE ARISES IN CONNECTION WITH THE TERMINATION OF
ALL OR A PORTION OF THE SERVICES, THE RELOCATION OF ALL OR A
PORTION OF THE SERVICES TO DIFFERENT SATELLITE(S), A CHANGE IN THE
FEATURES AVAILABLE WITH YOUR DISH NETWORK DBS EQUIPMENT OR
ANY ACTS OF GOD, FIRES, EARTHQUAKES, FLOODS, POWER OR TECHNICAL
FAILURE, ACTS OF ANY GOVERNMENTAL BODY OR ANY OTHER CAUSE
BEYOND OUR CONTROL. WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE
RESULTING FROM LOSS OF RECORDED MATERIAL OR THE PREVENTION OF
RECORDING DUE TO ANY FAULT, FAILURE, DEFICIENCY OR DEFECT IN
SERVICES OR EQUIPMENT. WE MAKE NO WARRANTY, EITHER EXPRESSED
OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE DISH NETWORK DBS EQUIPMENT OR ANY
SERVICES FURNISHED TO YOU. ALL SUCH WARRANTIES ARE EXPRESSLY
EXCLUDED. IN NO EVENT SHALL WE HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR SPECIAL,
INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RELATING TO THE
DBS EQUIPMENT OR RESULTING FROM OUR FURNISHING OR FAILURE TO
FURNISH ANY SERVICES OR EQUIPMENT TO YOU, OR FROM ANY FAULT,
FAILURE, DEFICIENCY OR DEFECT IN SERVICES OR EQUIPMENT FURNISHED
TO YOU.
Page 127
Appendix B
B. It is your responsibility to impose any restrictions on viewing by you, other
members of your household, or guests, and we shall have no liability to anyone due to or
based on the content of any of the Services furnished to you.
8.
WARNING AGAINST PIRACY.
It is a violation of several U.S. federal and state laws to receive any Services, or any
portion of such Services, without paying for them. The penalties for violating such laws
can range from imprisonment to civil damage awards of up to $110,000 per violation.
9.
MISCELLANEOUS.
A. Physical Address/Change of Address. When setting up your DISH Network
account, you agree to provide us with the physical street address where the Equipment
will be located. A post office box does not constitute a physical address and is not
sufficient to meet this requirement. You agree to give us prompt notice of your change of
name, mailing address, physical address where the Equipment is located or telephone
number. You may do this by notifying our Customer Service Center by telephone or in
writing.
B. Notice. If we send you notice, it will be considered given when deposited in
the U.S. Mail, addressed to you at your billing address or hand-delivered to you. Our
notice to you will also be effective if provided on your billing statement or by telephone.
If you give notice to us, it will be deemed given when received by us at the address listed
on the first page of this Agreement.
C. Applicable Law. This Agreement, including all matters relating to its validity,
construction, performance and enforcement, shall be governed by applicable federal law,
the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission, and the laws and
regulations of the state and local area where Service is provided. These terms and
conditions are subject to amendment, modification or termination if required by such
regulations or laws. If any provision in this Agreement is declared to be illegal or in
conflict with any law or regulation, that provision may be deleted or modified, without
affecting the validity of the other provisions.
D. Other. This document contains the entire agreement between DISH Network
and you, the customer, and no salesperson, installer, customer service representative,
authorized retailer, or other similarly situated individual is authorized to change the terms
set forth herein. DISH Network may, however, change the terms and conditions of this
Agreement in the future and will notify you if that occurs. The terms of this Agreement,
which either are expressly stated to survive or by their nature would logically be expected
to survive termination, shall continue thereafter until fully performed.

Staying Legal
STAYING LEGAL
Title 47, Section 605(e)4, United States Code (U.S.C.) makes it a federal
crime to modify this receiver to enable it to receive encrypted (scrambled)
television programming without payment of required subscriptions.
Conviction can result in a fine of up to $500,000 and imprisonment for five
years, or both. Any owner of this receiver who procures or willfully causes
its modification is an accessory to that offense and may be punishable in the
same manner. Investigative authority for violations lies with the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
This product may incorporate copyright protection technology that is
protected by U.S. patents and other intellectual property rights. Use of such
copyright protection technology must be authorized by Macrovision, and is
intended for home and other limited pay-per-view uses only unless otherwise
authorized by Macrovision. Reverse engineering or disassembly is
prohibited.
FCC COMPLIANCE
Telephone Communication
The following text is extracted from Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) regulations, as of the publication date of this
Guide. Contact the FCC (see following) or your library for the
complete text of the regulations.
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules. On the rear panel of
this equipment is a label that contains, among other information, the FCC
registration number and ringer equivalence number (REN) for this
equipment. If requested, this information must be provided to the telephone
company. See the inside of the back cover of this guide for the REN of this
equipment.
The REN is used to determine the quantity of devices which may be
connected to the telephone line. Excessive RENs on the telephone line may
result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most, but
not all areas, the sum of the RENs should not exceed five (5.0). The receiver
does not affect the sum of RENs. To be certain of the number of devices that
may be connected to the line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the
telephone company to determine the maximum REN for the calling area.
This equipment uses the following Universal Service Order Code (USOC)
jacks: RJ-11C.
An FCC compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this
equipment. This equipment is designed to be connected to the telephone
network or premises wiring using a compatible modular jack which is Part
68 compliant.
This equipment cannot be used on telephone company-provided coin
service. Connection to Party Line Service is subject to state tariffs.
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone
company will notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service
may be required. If advance notice is not practical, the telephone company
will notify the customer as soon as possible. Also, you will be advised of
your right to file a complaint with the FCC if you believe it is necessary.
The telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment,
operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of the equipment. If
this happens, the telephone company will provide advance notice in order for
you to make the necessary modifications in order to maintain uninterrupted
service.
Page 129
Appendix B
If you experience trouble with this equipment, please contact Customer
Service at 1-800-333-3474 for repair and warranty information. If the
trouble is causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone company
may request you remove the equipment from the network until the problem
is resolved.
Do not attempt to open the receiver, as this will void the
warranty. There is risk of electrical shock, which may result in
damage to the equipment, or personal injury or death. There are
no user-serviceable parts inside the receiver. Unauthorized
modification will void the warranty.
This equipment is hearing-aid compatible.
It is recommended that the customer install an AC surge arrester in the AC
outlet to which this device is connected. This is to avoid damage to the
equipment caused by local lightning strikes and other electrical surges.
RADIO INTERFERENCE
The receiver complies with the limits for a Class B digital device, as
specified in Part 15 of the FCC Rules. This compliance helps ensure against
radio interference with other equipment in a typical residential location.
Except for the telephone cable, you are required to use shielded cables and
cords, such as coaxial and communication cables, to maintain FCC
compliance.
The receiver does use radio frequencies during operation. If you do not
install or use the receiver properly, radio energy may be generated that can
interfere with radio communications. Also, it is possible that radio
interference can occur even in a proper installation. The typical symptom of
radio interference is distortion of television or radio reception. You can
determine if the receiver is the cause by confirming that the interference
stops if you unplug the receiver from the power outlet, and the interference
returns when you plug the receiver back into the outlet.
The customer may perform minor adjustments such as the following, in case
of problems with the equipment.
Move or realign the antenna or receiving device, such as your broadcast TV
antenna.
Increase the distance between the receiver and the equipment with the
interference. Change the angle of the receiver relative to the equipment.
Plug the receiver into a different power outlet, preferably on a different fuse
circuit within your building.
Refer to Troubleshooting on page 99 for a detailed description of
recommended customer actions.
If none of the remedies on the previous page stops the radio interference,
you should contact a licensed radio/television technician, your satellite
dealer, or call the Customer Service Center at 1-800-333-3474, for
assistance.
In addition, the FCC provides a booklet that can help you. You can order the
