Safety
Note to Satellite TV System Installer: This reminder is provided to call the satellite TV system installer’s
attention to Article 820-40 of the National Electrical Code (NEC) that provides guidelines for proper grounding
and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building as
close to the point of cable entry as practical.
•
Operate the receiver using only the type of power source indicated on the marking label. Unplug the
receiver power cord by gripping the power plug, not the cord.
•
Do not overload wall outlets or extension cords, as this can result in a risk of fire or electrical shock.
•
Never insert objects of any kind into the receiver through openings, as the objects may touch dangerous
voltage points or short out parts. This could cause fire or electrical shock.
•
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or
circuits. When installing the antenna, take extreme care to avoid touching such power lines or circuits, as
contact with them can be fatal.
•
Do not attempt to service the receiver yourself, as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage, and will void the Limited Warranty. Refer all servicing to authorized service personnel.
Proper Care of Your Equipment
•
Always handle the satellite receiver carefully. Avoid excessive shock and vibration at all times as this can
damage the hard drive.
•
Unplug the receiver from the AC power outlet before cleaning.
•
If you have the receiver turned on and need to move it, be sure to unplug the receiver and let it sit for at
least 30 seconds before moving it.
•
The use of accessories or attachments not recommended by the receiver manufacturer will void the Limited
Warranty.
•
Do not place the receiver in an enclosure such as a cabinet without proper ventilation.
•
Do not stack the receiver on top of or below other electronic devices as this can cause heat build-up and
vibration.
•
Do not install the receiver in any area where the temperature can be less than 40°F or more than 113°F. If
the receiver is cold to the touch, do not plug it in immediately. Let it sit unplugged at room temperature for at
least 45 minutes before plugging it in.
•
Use an outlet that contains surge suppression or ground fault protection. For added protection during a
lightning storm, or when the receiver is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug the
power cord from the wall outlet, disconnect the lines between the receiver and the antenna, and disconnect
the telephone line. This will provide some protection against damage caused by lightning or power line
surges.
On some TVs, the presence of fixed images for extended periods of time may cause them to be
permanently imprinted on the screen. Consult your TV user guide for information on whether this is
a problem for your TV, what operating/viewing restrictions apply to avoid this problem, and
associated TV warranty coverage.

Pay-Per-View
Catch all the action on Pay-Per-View. Take a break from regular TV and order the latest movies,
sports, and special events. For details on ordering Pay-Per-View events, see page 33. Be sure to
connect an active phone line to your receiver before you order a Pay-Per-View event (see the
instructions on page 92).
DishHOME

information, TV and movie buzz, customer service, games, and more.
ABOUT SATELLITE TV RECEPTION
Satellite television uses satellites in a stationary orbit over the Earth to deliver television and audio
programming. This type of orbit enables the satellites to stay aligned over one place on the surface
of the Earth. Once the satellite dish is aimed at the satellite, the dish does not have to move to
follow it.
Here’s something interesting! Noted science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke
calculated the orbit that causes satellites to remain stationary in the sky. To this
day the 22,000 mile high orbit bears the name Clarke Belt.
Rain and Snow Fade
Heavy rain, snow, or dense cloud cover can reduce the
satellite signal, which may interrupt your programming
service. Your service will return after the weather
condition has passed. Aiming the satellite dish to get the
strongest signal during installation, will help prevent rain
and snow from interrupting the signal.

Introduction
Why Connect to a Phone Line
Solar Interference
Twice a year, the sun moves to a position behind the
DISH Network satellite as it orbits the Earth. This event
occurs during a few days at the beginning of the spring
and the beginning of the autumn and lasts only a few
minutes.
During these brief periods, you will not be able to see
programs on DISH Network. When the sun has moved
from behind the satellite, the programs will reappear. This
is an unavoidable natural event for all television involving
the use of satellites and has an adverse effect on many
program providers.
WHY CONNECT TO A PHONE LINE
Your satellite receiver is equipped with a standard telephone jack that you use to connect to an
active telephone line. Keep the receiver connected to an active telephone line so that you will be
able to order pay-per-view programs using your remote control, use all of the DishHOME
Interactive TV features, and other services from DISH Network (see the instructions on page 92).
MOVING LOGO
Whenever the receiver is turned off using the remote control or front panel POWER button, you will
see the DISH Network logo moving around on your TV screen. This feature is included with your
receiver to assure you that the connections between your receiver and TV(s) are not lost. Press
POWER or SELECT on the remote control to resume watching satellite TV programming.

Tips
TIPS
•
Always have the latest software - Turn off the receiver when you’re not using it.
•
Order Pay-Per-View with your remote control - Keep an active phone line connected to the
receiver. Not only will you have Pay-Per-View at your fingertips, but you’ll also avoid
unnecessary charges.
QUESTIONS
8
•
How do I find something to watch? Refer to page 5. For more information on finding something to watch, see Chapter 3 - Finding Programs to Watch.
•
Why are some of the channels red in the Program Guide? The channels that are red in the
Program Guide are those which are not currently in your subscription. If you’d like to watch
those channels, call 1-800-333-DISH (3474) or go to www.dishnetwork.com.
•
I’m looking at program information in a guide I bought at the grocery store, but nothing
matches what’s on my DISH Network receiver, is something wrong? No. DISH Network
programming may vary from what you’ll find in a local publication. For best results, use the
Program Guide on your receiver or order DISH Entertainment.

Receiver and Remote Controls
Dual and Single Modes
DUAL AND SINGLE MODES
Your satellite receiver includes two modes of operation: Dual and Single. These modes
increase your entertainment options because you’ll be able to choose how you watch your
favorite programs.
Dual Mode
While in Dual Mode, you can use this dual-tuner satellite receiver to watch different
programming in two separate locations:
•
Nearby TV - Programming from the receiver is delivered to the TV near the receiver
using short audio/video cables and is controlled using Remote Control 1. The Nearby
TV is also referred to as “TV1.”
•
Remote TV - Programming from the receiver is delivered to a TV located in another
room using existing in-home coaxial cable and is controlled using Remote Control 2.
The video displayed on the remote TV is always in standard definition (SD). The
Remote TV is also referred to as “TV2.”

11
Chapter 02 Two Color.fm Page 12 Tuesday, July 25, 2006 3:02 PM
Chapter 2
Dual and Single Modes
Single Mode
Single Mode provides dual-tuner receiver features—like Picture-in-Picture (PIP)—to all
connected TVs.
Single Mode delivers the same programming to all of the TVs connected to the satellite
receiver and allows this programming to be controlled by either remote control. The format
of the programming shown on the remote TV(s) is standard definition (SD) and high
definition (HD) is shown only on the nearby TV. You can tell you are in Single Mode
because the Mode front panel indicator will light and the menus and other screens will
display Single Mode (as shown below).

Remote Controls
REMOTE CONTROLS
The two remote controls give you access to all the features of your satellite receiver. You
can set up each remote to control the satellite receiver and up to three other devices (see
page 61). These devices can be a TV, a VCR or DVD player, and a third device.
This section describes how to use the various features on the two types of remote controls
included with your satellite TV system.
Types of Remote Controls
2
UHF
PRO
PRO
Remote Control 1 uses infrared (IR)
signals to:
Remote Control 2 uses UHF Pro
signals to:
•
Control TV1 menus for the nearby
TV in Dual Mode.
•
Control TV2 menus for the remote
TVs in Dual Mode.
•
Control the satellite receiver in
Single Mode.
•
Control the satellite receiver in
Single Mode.
IR signals travel only short distances
(60 feet or less), and cannot go
through walls or other solid objects.
You must point the remote control
directly at the device, with no objects
blocking the line of sight.
Remote Control 1 uses IR signals
to control both the receiver and other
devices programmed into the remote.
This remote control is identified by the
green number 1 at the bottom of the
remote control.
UHF Pro signals travel long distances
and go through walls and other solid
objects.
To use Remote Control 2 to control
the receiver, you must attach the UHF
antenna to the receiver back panel
(see page 15).
Remote Control 2 uses IR signals to
control other devices programmed
into the remote. You must point the
remote control directly at these
devices, with no objects blocking the
line of sight.
This remote control is identified by the
blue number 2 at the bottom of the
remote control.

Receiver and Remote Controls
Remote Controls
Remote Control Batteries
The remote control comes with AAA batteries. When you replace old
batteries, you should replace all of the batteries. Use batteries of the same
kind, for example, alkaline or carbon zinc. Don’t mix batteries of different
kinds. Alkaline batteries last longer.
1 Press down on the top of the battery cover and slide the cover off.
2 Take out all of the old batteries.
3 Put the new batteries in. Make sure you match the plus (“+”) ends with the
plus markings on the battery case.
4 Slide the cover back into place.
Low Battery Warning
When you see a low battery warning message on your screen below the Program Banner,
the batteries in your remote control are weak and need to be replaced.
Here's a helpful hint...Don’t wait until you see this warning to change the remote
control batteries. If your remote control doesn’t seem to be working very well (for
example, you have to press POWER more than once to turn the receiver on or off),
it’s a good indication that the batteries are getting weak.
Attach the Remote Antenna
Attach the UHF remote antenna to the receiver's back panel Remote Antenna input so you
can use your UHF Pro Remote Control 2. Without the UHF antenna, you cannot use the
remote to control the receiver. See Adjusting the Remote Antenna on page 60 for more
detailed information about improving the performance of your UHF Pro remote control.

Buying a Pay-Per-View Program
To buy Pay-Per-View programs using your remote control, you must connect the receiver
to an active phone line. After you buy a Pay-Per-View program, you can watch it on all of
the receivers on your DISH Network account. Using the remote control, you can order the
exact same program for each receiver but you pay for the program only once. However,
replays (other than All-Day events) of programs are separate events. Go to
dishnetwork.com/ppv for a description of the types of Pay-Per-View events.

Order the event over the phone 1-877-DISH-PPV (347-4778). Charges may
apply.
–
Order the event online at www.dishnetwork.com/ppv.
–
Order the event over the phone at 1-800-333-DISH. Charges may apply.
•
I ordered a Pay-Per-View but can only see it on one receiver. Some Pay-Per-View
programs are restricted to one receiver per account.
•
Will I be charged more than once for ordering the same Pay-Per-View on two or
more receivers? If you’re using the remote control, you won’t be charged more than
once as long as it is the same exact event (for example, at the same time or All Day
events).
•
Why doesn’t my Program Guide show any Pay-Per-View channels? You may be
using a Favorites List that doesn’t include Pay-Per-View channels. Press GUIDE to
open the Program Guide and then press GUIDE again until you see All Chan in the
upper left corner of the Program Guide. See Chapter 5 - Favorites Lists on page 37 for
more information on using Favorites Lists. You may have Pay-Per-View channels
locked and hidden. See Chapter 6 - Parental Controls on page 41.
•
Why are some Pay-Per-View programs blacked out? Sporting events and other
programs are sometimes blacked out because of local restrictions.
•
Why did my all-day Pay-Per-View program shut off while I was watching it? The
all-day events run from 3 AM to 3 AM (Mountain Time).

What are Favorites Lists?
WHAT ARE FAVORITES LISTS?
Favorites Lists are lists of your favorite channels. You can create and change the lists
yourself, adding and removing channels as you wish. Your favorite channels can be
grouped into up to four lists for TV1 and four lists for TV2 (in Dual Mode).
38
•
When using a Favorites List, the Program Guide and Browse Banner display only the
channels in that Favorites List. Also, when you use the remote control UP or DOWN
ARROW to change channels, the receiver skips channels that are not on the list.
•
The All Chan list contains all the channels, including channels not in your current
subscription. You cannot make any changes to the All Chan list.
•
The All Sub list contains all the channels in your subscription. You cannot make any
changes to the All Sub list, except by changing your subscription.
•
The All HD list contains all the HD channels in your subscription.
•
Each Favorites List has a unique color in the Program Guide. You can give each list a
name. When you first get the receiver, the four lists are named List 1, List 2, List 3,
and List 4. The lists are empty until you add channels to them.
•
When you put the receiver in Single Mode, the Favorites Lists for only TV1 are
available. However, when you go back to Dual Mode, the Favorites Lists for TV2 are
available again.
•
If you choose a program using Themes or by entering a channel number using the
remote controls, the receiver tunes to the channel for that program whether or not that
channel is on the active Favorites List.
•
You can include over-the-air channels in your Favorites Lists if an over-the-air antenna
is connected to the receiver. See page 95 for instructions on connecting an over-theair antenna.

What are Locks?
WHAT ARE LOCKS?
Locks (Parental Controls) allow you to password-protect programming based on ratings,
or on a channel-by-channel basis. When you have locked the receiver:
•
If you try to access a locked item or open the Locks menu, the receiver displays a
message prompting you to enter the password.
•
The receiver allows you three attempts to enter the correct password. If you fail to
enter the correct password, the receiver does not allow you to try again for several
minutes.
•
If you enter the correct password, you can access the locked item or open the Locks
menu.
•
If you exit a locked item or close the Locks menu, you must enter the password to
access the item.
•
If you want to enable the TV1 Out on the Modulator Setup screen (see page 74), you
must enter the password to continue.
Locks for programming on the TV1 outputs for the nearby TV are set using the TV1
menus. Locks for programming for the TV2 outputs to remote TVs are set using the TV2
menus. Locks set for TV1 programming are separate from locks set for TV2 programming.
The information in this chapter applies to locks set by either TV1 or TV2 menus.
When you unlock programming delivered by the CH 21-69 OUT to your inhome cabling system, you are allowing all TVs connected to your in-home
cabling system to have access to this programming. In this case, you must rely
on the V-Chip technology and settings in the individual TVs to prevent viewing
of inappropriate programming. Consult your TV user’s guides for instructions to
set up V-Chip protection.
Locking the receiver is a two-step process:
1 Create the locks that you want.
2 Lock the receiver.
When the receiver is locked, anyone who wants to access locked items must enter the
password.

TIMERS
A timer is your instruction telling the satellite receiver the programs you want to view in the future.
For most VCR timers, you select a specific program on a specific channel, and tell the satellite
receiver how often you want to record that program. Be sure to set up the receiver to control your
VCR (see page 77).
Timer Types
There are three types of timers:
•
VCR - Records an event on a previously inserted tape for later viewing. Make sure you have
your VCR connected and turned on when using this type of timer. Also, be sure to set up the
receiver to tell the VCR to start/stop recording.
•
Auto Tune - Automatically changes the channel for live viewing of the event.
•
Reminder - Creates an on-screen reminder when the event is about to air.
•
ERD - Records an event to an external device such as a PocketDISH. See page 53 for
instructions on how to enable this feature.
Timer Frequency
Deciding how often you want to watch a program will help you make the best choice:
•
Once - Records a program once (good for movies, sporting events, etc.).
•
Weekly - Records a program once a week, at that time, on that channel.
•
Daily - Records a program once a day, at that time, on that channel.
•
Monday-Friday - Records a program once a day, Monday through Friday, at the selected
time, on that channel.

Improving Receiver Control
Adjusting the Remote Antenna
Be sure to set the remote control antenna (back of the receiver) straight up so you can use
the remote control from as far away as possible. Don't let the antenna touch anything.
If your UHF Pro Remote Control isn't working very well from far away, you
may be experiencing interference from objects near your receiver. To
improve your remote control's range, try the following:
– Place the receiver higher than all of the other equipment in your
entertainment center.
– Provide room above the receiver so that the antenna can be installed
straight up. If this is not possible, tilt the UHF antenna at about a 30°
angle.
– Place the UHF antenna outside the entertainment center by using a
coaxial cable to connect the antenna to the receiver.
– Try moving the receiver to other locations.
– Move any nearby over-the-air antennas away from the UHF remote
antenna. Do not place an over-the-air antenna on top of your receiver.
– Install a UHF attenuator. See Installing a UHF Attenuator in the following
section for details.
Changing the UHF Frequency Using the A/B Switch
Your remote has a switch to change the UHF frequency that your remote control uses. It
comes preset to the A position but you can change the setting to the B position to lessen
the likelihood of any other UHF remote interfering with yours.
2 Use a small screw driver or a paper clip to carefully change the setting.

Installing a UHF Attenuator
Unwanted UHF signals may interfere with signals from the remote control to the receiver.
To prevent such interference, you can install a 10 dB attenuator (available from many
consumer electronics parts stores). Adding this attenuator will help keep out stray UHF
signals, but it also cut down how far away you can use the remote control.
1 Remove the UHF antenna from the UHF Remote
Antenna input on the receiver back panel.
2 Attach a 10 dB attenuator to the UHF Remote
Antenna input.
3 Attach the UHF antenna to the attenuator.
CONTROLLING OTHER COMPONENTS
To use the remote to control other devices (such as a TV, VCR, DVD player, tuner,
amplifier, or DISH Network satellite receiver), you must first program it to control these
other devices. You can do this by either following the instructions in Setting Up Using
Device Code Tables on page 63, or the Setting Up Using Device Codes Scan procedure
described on page 64.

Using Dolby® Surround Sound
USING DOLBY® SURROUND SOUND
Dolby Digital gives you the capability to enjoy programs in surround sound. An external
decoder is required to enjoy this feature. Refer to your decoder user’s guide.
Note: Not all programs contain a Dolby Digital sound track.
The receiver uses an optical port for outputting digital audio. The optical output can
provide two audio data types: Dolby Digital and Linear PCM (only Dolby Digital can
provide full 5.1-channel sound).
•
Dolby Digital Only - Select this option if the stereo system or amplifier can decode
only Dolby Digital and will not process Linear PCM signals. See your amplifier's
owner's manual for more details on the amplifier (and see the following table).
•
PCM Only - Select this option only if the stereo system or amplifier cannot decode
Dolby Digital signals.
•
Dolby Digital/PCM - Select this option only if the stereo system or amplifier can
decode both Dolby Digital and Linear PCM signals.
The audio output is also dependent on what is present in the program you are watching.
The table below shows what type of output you will hear:

Connecting to the Remote TVs (TV1 or TV2)
Connecting Other TV(s) (TV1 or TV2)
When connecting to the home distribution (CH 21–69 Out) coaxial port, you must meet the FCC
requirements listed in the Appendix. To meet these requirements, a physical and/or electronic
attenuator is included with your receiver and may need to be installed with the following guidance:
•
If connecting to your in-home cabling system to distribute the signal to a TV(s) in other rooms,
in most cases you will not have to install the attenuator on the CH 21–69 port.
•
If connecting directly to a nearby TV tuner port, attenuate the signal to the television using only
one of the following methods:
•
If included, install the physical attenuator in the cable between the CH 21–69 Out port and
the TV tuner.
•
Enable the attenuator feature on the receiver. Open the Modulator Setup screen (MENU6-1-5) and select Connection. When the Connect screen opens, select Direct Connection.
Select Done to save your changes.
Note: If the picture quality on the nearby TV is degraded, remove the attenuator or change the
setting on the Connection screen back to Home Distribution.
If you have an over-the-air antenna or cable connected to your in-home cable system, see
Connecting Over-the-Air Antenna following this section.
Make sure you are familiar with how to change channels on your TV and if necessary how
to switch your TV between over-the-air and cable channels. During this procedure, it will
be necessary to change the channels on your TV(s) to tune to these channels to see the
video from the receiver. See your TV user’s guide for instructions.
1 Connect the tuner input of the remote TV(s) in other rooms to an existing wall cable outlet using a
coaxial cable.
2 Turn on every remote TV connected to the in-home cabling system.
3 Find three channels next to each other on one of your remote TVs that do not pick up any signals
from over-the-air or cable broadcasts (they should show nothing but snow or static). These
channels must fall in one of the two ranges below. For example, if you find that cable channels 75,
76, and 77 do not pickup any broadcasts, pick these channels since they fall into the range below
for cable channels. Make sure these three channels on other remote TVs also do not pick up
broadcasts.
•
Air Mode - Select a channel between 21 and 69 if your TV(s) will be set in Air Mode.
•
Cable Mode - Select a channel between 73 and 125 if your TV(s) will be set in Cable Mode.
Note: The remote TV(s) will have to be set to the same channel mode, either over-the-air or cable
channel mode for this installation. See your TV user’s guide for instructions on how to set your TV
to over-the-air or cable channel modes.
4 Pick the channel in the middle of the three you selected in step 3. Write that channel down in the

If your TV(s) do not have a picture or if it is not as clear as you would like it to be, go to the next
step.
16 You may need to change the cable connection on the splitter that sends the TV signal throughout
your house. The change that needs to be made is move the cable coming from the receiver CH
21-69 Out from the output of the splitter to the input of the splitter using the instructions that follow.
The following figure shows an example of what your splitter may look like. Your splitter may look
different. The places where the splitter indicates Out refers to all TVs connected to your cable system. The places where the splitter indicates In refers to where the TV signal is fed into the splitter.
1 Input, 4 Output (4-Way) Splitter
17 Find where the TV signal is distributed throughout your house. It should be near where the cable
TV service enters the house.
18 Disconnect the cable TV service cable or antenna cable from the splitter input, if necessary. Make
sure the disconnected cable is capped or otherwise protected from the weather. Disconnect the
cable coming from the receiver CH 21–69 Out port from the splitter. If you do not know which cable
this is, go to the next step. Otherwise, go to step 20.
19 If you have multiple TVs on the cable system, do the following to determine which cable on the
splitter is coming from the receiver:
•
If you have at least some picture on your TV(s), turn on all remote TVs connected to the cable
system. Disconnect and reconnect each cable one by one observing what happens to the
TV(s). When all remote TVs lose the signal, you have disconnected the receiver’s cable. If
only some or one TV loses the signal, then you have disconnected a cable from the TV(s).
•
If the above step does not work, disconnect one of the output cables and connect to the
splitter input. If you do not see a picture, connect the cable back to its output. Repeat this step
on every connection until you get a picture on the remote TV(s).
20 Reconnect the receiver’s cable to the input of the splitter. Make sure you have a good picture on
your remote TV(s).
21 If desired to remind you of which TV channel your satellite programming is on, write the channel
number you wrote in step 5 on a blank channel sticker and place it on or near your remote TV(s).

Connecting Over-the-Air Antenna
CONNECTING OVER-THE-AIR ANTENNA
If you want to receive channels from an over-the-air antenna or cable in addition to your
satellite receiver programming, connect the over-the-air antenna/cable into your TV
distribution equipment.
•
The TV Antenna/Cable In on your receiver's back panel can be used to receive and
view programming on the nearby TV from an over-the-air antenna or cable service.
•
Connect a VHF/UHF over-the-air antenna to the 8VSB TV Antenna/Cable port. Peel
off the black sticker and affix it to the cable close to where it connects to the back of
the receiver. The stickers are inside the front cover of this guide.
•
Not all over-the-air broadcasts can be recorded with your receiver.
•
The remote TV can view over-the-air channels only in Single Mode.
•
For remote TVs receiving programming from CH 21-69 Out, the over-the-air antenna
needs to be connected to your TV distribution equipment. When adding this
connection, the FCC requires that your install appropriate equipment between the
over-the-air antenna/cable and the satellite TV receiver to prevent you from
accidentally retransmitting DISH Network programming (see FCC Compliance in the
Appendix). TV distribution equipment devices include coax panels, amplifiers or super
home nodes, and are available through many companies. See www.dishnetwork.com
for a list of approved equipment.
•
You can add local over-the-air channels and assign them network affiliations. Once
you have done this, you can access the channels via the Program Guide or the
Browse Banner in much the same way as you would satellite channels.
Note: The type of antenna required depends on the channels used by, and the locations
of, the local broadcasters for your area. Visit www.antennaweb.org or contact a
professional installer to help you select a suitable antenna.
Make sure to follow the antenna installation instructions correctly. Ground an
outdoor antenna per the National Electrical Code (NEC) and any local
electrical codes.
The audio/video quality on local over-the-air channels depends on the
distance and terrain between the broadcast station and your home, and on
the placement and quality of the over-the-air TV antenna you use. If you have
questions about over-the-air channels, contact the broadcaster, not DISH
Network.

Connecting Over-the-Air Antenna
Scanning for Over-the-Air Channels
With your over-the-air antenna adjusted for best reception, use these instructions to scan for overthe-air channels for the nearby TV.
1 Make sure you have your over-the-air antenna connected to the receiver’s 8VSB TV Antenna/
Cable connection.
2 Press MENU, select System Setup (6), and then Local Channels (9) to open the Local Channels
screen. If this is the first time you have opened this screen, it will have no channels listed.
3 Scan for channels by selecting Scan Locals.
4 The scan will take a few minutes to complete. When it finishes, the results will show how many
channels the scan found.
5 Select OK to go back to the Local Channels screen.
Note: If the channel number says None, you have not yet assigned this channel a network
affiliation or name. The Arrow at the bottom left means that there are more channels, off the
bottom of the screen, which you can get to with the ARROW keys if you wish to edit their names or
remove them.
6 If you want to name the over-the-air channels, continue on. If you do not want to name your overthe-air channels, select Done. You will then be taken out of the menus back to watching TV.
7 Select a channel and then select Edit Name to modify the way the channel name displays on your
screen.
8 Use the virtual keyboard on the screen to select the letters of your channel name.
9 When you are finished making changes, select Done.

Transmit Channel Numbers
For information on channel numbers, you can visit the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB)
web page at www.nab.org. On this web page, go to www.nab.org/Newsroom/Issues/digitaltv/
DTVstations.asp for a listing of digital broadcast stations and their Transmit Channel numbers.
Note: Where Transmit Channel is displayed by the receiver, the NAB web page uses the term RF
Channel. These terms mean the same thing.
Another good source of local channel information is available from the Consumer Electronics
Association (CEA) web page at: www.antennaweb.org. This website provides recommendations
for antenna types and pointing directions.
About Over-the-Air TV Broadcasts
Over-the-air TV signals are broadcast from stations on the ground, while satellite TV signals are
broadcast from satellites in space. You receive over-the-air TV signals using an indoor or outdoor
antenna instead of the satellite dish. You are likely familiar with analog over-the-air TV signals these are the signals that have been used to broadcast TV for many years. New digital over-the-air
TV signals are broadcast and received in the same way. Digital over-the-air TV broadcasting uses
advanced technology like that of the DISH Network to deliver superb picture quality and CD quality
sound. However, digital over-the-air signal reception (like analog over-the-air signal reception)
depends on several things:
•
The distance between the broadcast station and your home (the farther away the station, the
weaker the signal);
•
The broadcast station's power (the lower the power, the weaker the signal);
•
Obstacles between the station and your home, such as mountains, buildings, trees, or other
objects (these may block or reflect the signal before it reaches you);
•
Multiple broadcast stations (to receive good signals from several stations, you may need to
compromise in how you aim the antenna or you may need more than one antenna).
The effects of poor digital reception are different from the effects of poor analog reception:
98
•
Poor analog reception usually causes the TV picture to be “snowy” or to include “ghosts,” that
is, multiple images caused by receiving reflected signals along with the direct signal from a
station.
•
Poor digital reception may cause the TV picture to be “pixelized,” that is, broken up into small
squares of various colors, or to be lost completely (the TV screen is all black or all blue).
•
Digital broadcasts often provide either a very good picture or no picture at all.
•
You may be able to receive a poor analog signal but not be able to receive a digital signal at
all.
Chapter 11 Two Color.fm Page 99 Wednesday, August 2, 2006 1:00 PM
Connections and Setup
Connecting Over-the-Air Antenna
To get the best possible digital signal reception, make sure you use the best over-the-air
antenna for where you live:
•
You can receive a limited number of channels using a rabbit ears type antenna on top
of the TV set, or a much larger number via a large UHF/VHF indoor/outdoor antenna.
•
The higher the quality of the antenna you use, the greater its range and the better its
reception will be.
Digital OTA Broadcasts are Still Developing
•
Broadcasters may still be testing digital signals and their strength, and may stop
broadcasting without notice, vary power output, or turn it off.
•
Some broadcasters do not yet have permanent transmitter tower.
•
Broadcasters may choose to multicast, which allows them to provide multiple
standard-definition channels in the same bandwidth used to provide a high-definition
channel.
•
These factors are outside of DISH Network's control.
Additional Installation Considerations
•
Follow local and National Electric Code requirements for grounding the antenna.
•
RG-6 coaxial cable is preferred for the ANTENNA IN line. If you are diplexing the
ANTENNA IN and SATELLITE IN cables, RG-6 coaxial cable must be used.
•
You can not use a diplexer to combine the ANTENNA IN and SATELLITE IN cables if
using an amplified antenna.
•
If you are using a diplexer to combine the TV 2 CH 21-69 OUT of the receiver, and the
ANTENNA IN, you must use a Super Home Node to prevent accidentally
broadcasting the TV2 OUTPUT from the antenna. See page 49 for more information.
If you have questions about over-the-air channels, contact the broadcasters, not DISH
Network. DISH Network does not broadcast over-the-air signals and so cannot do
anything to change over-the-air signal quality. However, the receiver's digital channel
setup menus provide a signal strength bar that can help you in aiming the over-the-air TV
antenna for the strongest possible signal.
Here’s something interesting! We all know that there’s no Channel 1, but did you
know that no TV stations broadcast on Channel 37? That channel is reserved for
radio astronomy. Perhaps someday we will receive TV shows from Alpha Centauri.

Using Troubleshooting Tools
USING TROUBLESHOOTING TOOLS
Your receiver has troubleshooting tools that a Customer Service Representative may ask you to
use if you should ever run into problems while using your equipment. Even though these tools are
quite helpful, it is recommended that you only use them when on the phone with a DISH Network
representative.
Resetting Your Receiver
Reset your receiver as directed by the Customer Service Representative as follows:
1 Press and hold the front panel POWER until only the green TV1 indicator is lit.
2 Let go of the front panel POWER.
It will take a few minutes for your receiver to reset and come back on. When you reset your
receiver, your receiver may have to download an updated Program Guide. If this is the case, it may
take longer for the receiver to come back on.
Diagnostics
The Customer Service Representative may ask you to open the Diagnostics screen. Remember to
have an active phone line connected to your receiver.
1 Press MENU, select System Setup (6), and then select Diagnostics. The Diagnostics screen
shows you various tests the Customer Service Representative may ask you to perform on your
receiver:
•
Connection - Tests for a valid receiver phone connection.
•
Dial Out - If “No Dial Out Pending” is displayed, the receiver does not need to have its smart
card records updated.
•
Counters - Shows you a list of diagnostic counters. Use PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN to scroll
through the list of counters displayed.
2 Select Done.

Advance Exchange Program
The Advance Exchange Program allows you to have replacement equipment shipped immediately to you (depending
upon where you live, it could take three to five business days). Along with replacement equipment, you will receive a
prepaid shipping label and instructions on how to return the defective equipment. The shipping charge, for receiving
replacement equipment and returning the defective equipment, is a one-time fee based on EchoStar's competitive bulk
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.
Accessory Warranty
An accessory is any DISH Network branded equipment, displaying the DISH Network logo, excluding the receiver,
cables and hookups, and non-mechanical components. A one-year warranty becomes effective upon the activation of
the DISH system or date of purchase, if bought separately. A proof of purchase is required to verify the purchase date. If
an accessory has an expired warranty, no exchange will be issued. You may purchase replacement accessories from
DISH Network or your local retailer.

B. Changing Your Programming Selection. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement or the customer agreement(s), if
any, applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment, you may change your
programming selection at any time by notifying us. A fee may apply to such changes (“Transaction Fee”). In addition (and
without limitation), you may be charged a monthly fee (“Service Access Fee”) if you fail to subscribe to one of the following
DISH Network basic programming packages: America's Top 60, America's Top 120, America's Top 180, Great Wall TV
Package, DISH Latino, DISH Latino Dos DISH Latino Max, America's “Everything” Pak, Latino “Everything” Pak, or any of
their successor packages. Some Services are only available if you purchase and maintain a minimum level of
programming.
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 special events and pay-per-view Services by using your onscreen Program Guide and remote control unit to select the movies and other events we offer. To receive the full
functionality of DISH Network pay-per-view Services, your DISH Network receiver must be connected to a land-based
telephone line. You may also order DISH Network special events and pay-per-view Services by calling the following toll
free number: 1-877-DISH-PPV (3474-778) and using our automated system or speaking with a live operator at one of our
Customer Service Centers. A fee will apply for using our automated system (“Pay-Per-View Automated Fee”) or calling one
of our Customer Service Centers (“Pay-Per-View Live Operator Fee”).
E. Private Home Viewing Only. DISH Network provides Services to you solely for your private home viewing, use and
enjoyment. You agree that no Services provided to you will be viewed in areas open to the public or in commercial
establishments. Services may not be rebroadcast, nor performed, nor may admission be charged for listening to or viewing
any Services. If we later determine that you utilized your Equipment (or sold, leased or otherwise gave possession of such
equipment to a third party who you knew or reasonably should have known intended to use it) to permit the viewing of
Services in a commercial establishment or any other area open to the public, we may disconnect your Services and in
addition to all other applicable fees, you agree to pay us the difference between the price actually paid for Services and the
full commercial rate for such Services, regardless of whether we have or had the rights to distribute such Services in a
commercial establishment.
F. Additional Tuners and Receivers. We may allow you to place additional receivers on your account in our sole discretion.
Each additional receiver will be authorized to receive the same Services as your initial receiver. 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 your same land-based telephone line. Unless otherwise specified in the customer
agreement(s), if any, applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment, DISH
Network will charge you a monthly additional outlet programming access fee (“Additional Outlet Programming Access
Fee”) for each tuner activated on your account beyond the first. If you desire to receive Services at two different residential
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 your same land-based telephone line. If we later determine that you did, we may disconnect
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 receiver on your account.
G. Changes in Services Offered. We reserve the right to add, delete, rearrange and/or change any and all programming,
programming packages and other Services that we offer, and our prices and fees related to such programming,
programming packages and Services at any time, including without limitation during any term agreement period to which
you have agreed under the terms and conditions of any other agreement with DISH Network. If a change affects you, we
will provide you notice of such change and its effective date. In the event that we delete, rearrange or change any
programming, programming packages or other Services, you understand and agree that we have no obligation to replace
or supplement any programming, programming packages or other Services previously offered that have been deleted,
rearranged or otherwise changed. You further understand and agree that you will not be entitled to any refund because of
a deletion, rearrangement or 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 your Services only at your time of
renewal. You may not downgrade your Services during the term of a 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 in connection with any Services you receive from us. Unless you prepay for a multi-month
subscription to Services, we will bill you each month, in advance, for most Services and in arrears for other Services such
as pay-per-view ordered by you or anyone who uses your Equipment, whether with or without your permission, until you
cancel your Services. Bills you receive will show the total amount due, the payment due date, payments, credits,
purchases and certain other charges to your account.
122
Appendix Two Color.fm Page 123 Tuesday, July 25, 2006 3:06 PM
Appendix
Residential Customer Agreement
B. You agree to pay us in full monthly by the payment due date indicated on your bill for your Services and for any other
charges due and owing to us, including without limitation any fees named in this Section 2. If you do not pay your bill in full
on or before its due date, you agree to pay an administrative fee for late payment (“Late Payment Fee”) as described
below. Other fees and charges may also be assessed, including without limitation a returned payment fee (“Returned
Payment Fee”) in the event such non-payment arises from non-sufficient funds. If you request a duplicate billing statement,
you will be assessed an additional fee (also referred to as a “Transaction Fee”). You may submit your payment by mail, on
our website, through our autopay program, by calling a DISH Network customer service representative or by any other
means we may designate. If payment is made by calling a DISH Network customer service representative, a fee will be
assessed (“Live Operator Payment Fee”) as described below. If partial payments are made, they will be applied first to the
oldest outstanding bill. We do not assume the risk of undelivered mail. If you send checks or money orders marked with a
designation such as “payment in full,” we can accept them without waiving any of our rights, including without limitation our
rights to collect any other amounts owed by you, notwithstanding your characterization of such 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 in full by its due date, or if you at any time otherwise fail, neglect or refuse to make timely payment for your
Services, we have the right to disconnect your Services at any time thereafter, in our sole discretion, and in such event we
shall be wholly relieved from any and all of our duties and obligations under this Agreement. If your Services are
disconnected for non-payment or for any other reason, DISH Network may require you to pay, and you agree to pay, all
past due charges, a fee for reconnection (“Restart Fee”), a deposit equal to a minimum of two month's service charges and
all outstanding balances accrued through the date of such disconnection, before we reconnect your Services. Unless
required by applicable law, deposits will not be held segregated from other funds and shall not earn or accrue interest.
Promotional pricing is valid only at time of installation. Additional charges may apply for you to upgrade your Services or
Equipment after installation or for non-standard installations.
C. If you paid for an annual or other multi-month subscription to any Services and your account is past due for any amount
owed to us, at our option we may suspend any or all Services until we receive payment in full of all past due amounts, 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 any obligations you incur in the future.
D. If we use a collection agency or attorney to collect any 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 may contact our Customer Service Center by telephone or in writing. You must contact us within
twenty (20) days after the date you receive the billing statement for which you are seeking corrections. Failure to timely
notify us of a dispute shall constitute your acceptance of the corresponding bill. Undisputed portions of a billing statement
must be paid before the next billing statement is issued or you agree to pay an administrative fee for late payment. All
payments for Services must be made directly by you to us. For example, DISH Network shall have no obligation to provide
Services for which payment is made by you to a third party or payment is made by a third party on your behalf.
E. In addition to (and without limitation of) any amounts due for your Services and any other amounts due pursuant to any
customer agreement(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment, you agree to pay the fees
referenced below (“Fees”) if and when applicable. DISH Network reserves the right to change these Fees, increase these
Fees or add additional Fees at any time and from time to time, in our sole discretion upon notice to you.

F. Different or other payment and billing terms and conditions may apply when billing is provided through a third-party
billing agent, including without limitation, a local telephone company. See Section 9.F below.
3.
CANCELLATION OF SERVICE
A. Your Services will continue until cancelled or disconnected as provided herein. Unless previously disconnected, your
subscription will be automatically renewed unless and until you contact us to cancel it as provided in the next paragraph.
B. You have the right to cancel your Services for any reason and at any time by notifying us via telephone, via e-mail or in
writing, at the phone number, e-mail address or mailing address set forth in the first paragraph of this Agreement. Please
be aware that certain promotions have an optional or mandatory term agreement period and if you cancel your Services
prior to the expiration of that optional or mandatory term agreement period, certain early termination or cancellation fees
may apply.

Appendix
Residential Customer Agreement
C. In addition to all other rights that DISH Network may have to disconnect your Services, DISH Network has the right to
disconnect your Services at any time without providing notice to you if: (i) you fail to pay any bill in full when it is due; (ii) we
receive confirmation that you have received Services, or any part of the Services, without paying for them; (iii) you
otherwise violate the terms and conditions of this Agreement or any customer agreement(s) applicable to the promotion(s)
pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment; (iv) you transfer, encumber or relocate any leased
Equipment (unless you relocate such equipment as part of a residential move into an area within which you can
permissibly continue to receive such Services); (v) you assign or attempt to assign any of your rights, duties or obligations
under the terms and conditions of this Agreement or any customer agreement(s) applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to
which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment; (vi) you are receiving Services through a third-party billing agent and
become ineligible to receive applicable services provided by such third-party billing agent; or (vii) any act of bankruptcy on
your part or the commencement of bankruptcy proceedings against you.
D. If your Services are canceled or disconnected for any reason, you are still responsible for the payment of all outstanding
balances accrued, including without limitation any applicable Fees.
E. You understand that, except in certain limited circumstances, charges for Services, once charged to your account, are
nonrefundable and no refunds or credits will be provided in connection with the cancellation of subscriptions to Services. If
you received a discounted price in exchange for your agreement to pay for your Services on a multi-month basis, and you
cancel your Services prior to the 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 your multi-month subscription.
4.
EQUIPMENT
A. In order to receive Services it will be necessary for you to purchase or lease certain reception equipment consisting
primarily of a DISH Network compatible satellite receiver(s), satellite antenna(s), low noise block converter(s) with
integrated feed(s) and remote control(s) (collectively, “Equipment”). Receiver(s) provided to you may also be equipped with
a conditional access card (“Smart Card”) inserted into a slot in such receiver. Not all receivers with a Smart Card slot
require Smart Cards for proper authorization. Smart Cards remain the property of DISH Network at all times and any
tampering or other unauthorized modification to any Smart Card is strictly prohibited and may result in, and subject you to,
legal action. You agree to return Smart Cards to us upon our request.
B. Smart Cards are non-transferable. Your Smart Card will only work in the DISH Network receiver to which it was
assigned by DISH Network. If you report to our Customer Service Center that your Smart Card was lost, damaged,
defective or stolen, then we will replace it, as long as there is no evidence of unauthorized tampering or modification. A
replacement fee will apply (“Smart Card Replacement Fee”). 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 in which
event our overnight delivery fee (“Overnight Delivery Fee”) will apply.
C. DISH Network reserves the rights to alter software, features and/or functionality in your DISH Network receivers,
provide data and content to Personal Video Recorder/Digital Video Recorder (“PVR/DVR”) products, store data and
content on the hard drives of PVR/DVR products, and send electronic counter-measures to your DISH Network receivers,
through periodic downloads. DISH Network will use commercially reasonable efforts to schedule these downloads to
minimize interference with or interruption to your Services, but shall have no liability to you for any interruptions in Services
arising out of or related to such downloads.
D. DISH Network's PVR/DVR Products allow you to record programming in digital format. Total recording time varies
depending on your receiver and the nature of the programs being recorded. DISH Network does not guarantee access to
or recording of any particular programming. Most programming is the copyrighted material of the third party that supplies it,
is protected by copyright and other applicable laws, and may not be reproduced, published, broadcast, rewritten, or
redistributed without the written permission of the third party that supplied it except as permitted by the “fair use” provisions
of the U.S. copyright laws. DISH Network may, in its sole discretion, add, change or remove features of its PVR/DVR
Products and, upon notice to you, introduce or change fees for the use of PVR/DVR Product features. DISH Network will
notify you of any change that is within its reasonable control. Unless otherwise specified in the terms and conditions of the
customer agreement(s) applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment, we
will charge you a monthly DISH Network DVR service fee (“DISH Network DVR Service Fee”) for each PVR/DVR receiver
activated on your account.
E. DISH Network receivers contain components and software that are proprietary to DISH Network. You agree that you will
not try to reverse-engineer, decompile or disassemble any software or hardware contained within any receiver or Smart
Card. Such actions are strictly prohibited and may result in the termination of this Agreement, disconnection of your
Services and/or legal action.
F. To optimize the operation of your Equipment, you must continuously connect each DISH Network receiver on your
account to your same land-based telephone line. Failure to connect each receiver to your same land-based telephone line
may result in interruption or disconnection of Services.
G. If your Equipment is stolen or otherwise removed from your premises without your authorization, you must notify our
Customer Service Center by telephone or in writing immediately, but in any event not more than three (3) business days
after such removal to avoid liability for payment for unauthorized use of your Equipment. You will not be liable for
unauthorized use that occurs after we have received your notification.

H. You are licensed to use the software provided in your DISH Network receiver(s), as updated by DISH Network from
time to time, solely in executable code form, solely in conjunction with lawful operation of the DISH Network receiver(s)
that you purchased or leased, and solely for the purposes permitted under this Agreement. You may not copy, modify or
transfer any software provided in your DISH Network receiver(s), or any copy thereof, in whole or in part. You may not
reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or translate such software, or otherwise attempt to derive its source code,
except to the extent allowed under any applicable laws. Any attempt to transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations of
this license agreement is null and void. You may not rent, lease, load, resell for profit or distribute any software provided in
your DISH Network receiver(s), or any part thereof. Such software is licensed, not sold, to you for use only under the
terms and conditions of this license agreement, and DISH Network and its suppliers reserve all rights not expressly
granted to you. Except as stated above, this license agreement does not grant to you any intellectual property rights in the
software provided in your DISH Network receiver(s). If you breach any term or condition of this license agreement, this
license agreement will automatically terminate.
5.
LEASED EQUIPMENT
A. DISH Network may, from time to time, lease certain Equipment to subscribers. If you elect to lease Equipment from
DISH Network, the terms and conditions of the customer agreement(s) applicable to the lease promotion(s) pursuant to
which you are leasing such Equipment shall apply, which are in addition to (and without limitation of) the terms and
conditions of this Agreement. Unless otherwise specified in such customer agreement(s): (i) such Equipment, except for
the satellite antenna, shall at all times remain the sole and exclusive property of DISH Network and we will have the right,
in our sole discretion, to provide or replace leased Equipment with new or reconditioned Equipment and to remove, or
require the return of, such Equipment upon cancellation or disconnection of your Services for any reason and (ii) we will
charge you a monthly equipment rental fee (an “Equipment Rental Fee”) for each leased receiver activated on your
account. No leased Equipment provided to you by DISH Network shall be deemed fixtures or part of your realty. Our
ownership of such Equipment may be displayed by notice contained on it. You shall have no right to pledge, sell,
mortgage, otherwise encumber, give away, remove, relocate, alter or tamper with such Equipment (or any notice of our
ownership thereon) at any time. Any reinstallation, return, or change in the location of such Equipment shall be performed
by us at our service rates in effect at the time of such service. You shall not attach any electrical or other devices to, or
otherwise alter, any such Equipment without our prior written consent. We reserve the right to make such filings as may be
determined to be necessary by us in our sole discretion to evidence our ownership rights in such Equipment, and you
agree to execute any and all documents as may be so determined to be necessary for us to make such filings. You are
responsible for preventing the loss or destruction of leased Equipment and we recommend that such Equipment be
covered by your homeowners, renters or other insurance policy.
B. Upon termination of your Services, you must notify our Customer Service Center or call the telephone number set forth
in the customer agreement(s) applicable to the lease promotion(s) pursuant to which you are leasing the applicable
Equipment to schedule the return of your leased Equipment. If such Equipment is not returned undamaged and in working
order, normal wear and tear excepted, certain charges will apply as described in the customer agreement(s) applicable to
the lease promotion(s) pursuant to which you are leasing such Equipment. You are responsible for, and agree to pay, any
costs of repair, replacement or other costs if you do not return such Equipment undamaged and in working order, normal
wear and tear excepted.
C. You shall notify us promptly of any defect in, damage to, or accident involving your leased Equipment. All maintenance
and repair of such Equipment shall be performed by us or our designee(s). DISH Network may charge you for any repairs
that are necessitated by any damage to, or misuse of, such 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. NEITHER WE NOR OUR THIRD PARTY BILLING AGENTS NOR ANY OF OUR OR THEIR AFFILIATES WILL BE
LIABLE FOR ANY INTERRUPTIONS IN SERVICE OR FOR ANY DELAY OR FAILURE TO PERFORM, INCLUDING
WITHOUT LIMITATION IF SUCH INTERRUPTION OR DELAY OR FAILURE TO PERFORM ARISES IN CONNECTION
WITH THE TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION OF DISH NETWORK'S ACCESS TO ALL OR ANY PORTION OF
SERVICES, THE RELOCATION OF ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICES TO DIFFERENT SATELLITE(S), A
CHANGE IN THE FEATURES AVAILABLE WITH YOUR EQUIPMENT, ANY SOFTWARE OR OTHER DOWNLOADS
INITIATED BY US OR ANY ACTS OF GOD, FIRES, EARTHQUAKES, FLOODS, POWER OR TECHNICAL FAILURE,

WARNING AGAINST PIRACY AND INFRINGEMENT
A. It is a violation of various 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 include imprisonment and civil damage awards of up to
$110,000 per violation.
B. Title 47, Section 605(e)4, United States Code (U.S.C.) makes it a federal crime to modify Equipment 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 person who procures Equipment that has been so modified 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. Equipment 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.
9.
GENERAL
A. Physical Address/Change of Address. When setting up your DISH Network account, you agree to provide us with the
physical street address where your Equipment will be located and your Services will be provided. 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 your Equipment is located, and telephone number. You may do
this by notifying our Customer Service Center by telephone or in writing at the phone number or mailing or e-mail address
set forth in the first paragraph of this Agreement.
B. Notice. Any notice required or permitted to be given by us under this Agreement may be provided via the mail, on your
billing statement, as a bill insert, via broadcast on a television channel, through publication on the website set forth in the
first paragraph of this Agreement, by telephone or by any other reasonable means. If we send you notice by mail, on your
billing statement or as a bill insert, it will be considered given when deposited in the U.S. Mail, addressed to you at your
then-current billing address in our records. If we send you notice via broadcast on a television channel or through
publication on the website set forth in the first paragraph of this Agreement, it will be considered given when first broadcast
or published. If we send you notice by telephone, it will be considered given when personally delivered to you or when left
as a message at your then-current phone number in our records. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, any notice
required or permitted to be given by you under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be sent by first class mail
addressed to us at the mailing address set forth in the first paragraph of this Agreement, and shall be deemed given when
received by us at such mailing address.
C. Credit Checks. You authorize DISH Network to investigate your financial responsibility and creditworthiness, including
without limitation acquiring credit reports and histories, and to report any payment defaults to credit reporting agencies.
Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, you have the right to notify DISH Network if you believe we have reported inaccurate
information about your account to any consumer reporting agency. Please include the specific item of dispute and why you
believe the information reported is in error in any such notice.
D. Personal Information. If you have an on-line account with us, you are fully responsible for maintaining the confidentiality
of your password and account username and for all activities that occur under your password and/or account username.
You agree to: (i) keep your account username and password confidential and not share them with anyone else, and (ii)
immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password and/or account username or other breach of security.
E. Applicable Law. This Agreement, including without limitation all matters relating to its validity, construction, performance
and enforcement, and any claim, complaint or dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement or Services, shall be
governed by the laws and regulations of the State of Colorado without giving effect to its conflict of law provisions. These
terms and conditions are subject to amendment, modification or termination if required by such laws or regulations. If any
provision in this Agreement is declared to be illegal or in conflict with any law or regulation, that provision shall be modified
to the minimum extent necessary to make such provision legal and no longer in conflict with such law or regulation, without
affecting the validity of any other provisions.

Staying Legal
F. Third-Party Billing Agents. We may enter into relationships with third parties to provide billing and other services on our
behalf, in which case the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall apply to such third parties as applicable under the
circumstances. Additional terms and conditions imposed by our third-party billing agents, including without limitation, local
telephone companies, may apply. For example (and without limitation), late fees imposed by our third-party billing agents
may be administered according to our third-party billing agent's billing procedures and applicable state tariffs and
regulations; our third-party billing agents may require you to pay all past due charges for Services, a restart Fee, and/or a
prepayment before we reconnect your Services; other services provided by our third-party billing agents, including without
limitation, local telephone service, may need to be restored before DISH Network Services can be restored, and a restore
fee and deposit may be required to restore third-party billing agent services. Partial payments on third-party billing agent
bills may be applied to the balance due for other services billed on your third-party billing agent bill, including without
limitation, local telephone service, according to the third-party billing agent's billing procedures and applicable state
statutes and regulations. Contact your third-party billing agent for details. Failure to pay all or any part of your third-party
billing agent bill may result in disconnection of Services.
G. Remedies Cumulative. It is agreed that the rights and remedies provided under the terms and conditions of this
Agreement to DISH Network in case of default or breach by you of this Agreement are cumulative and without prejudice to
any other rights and remedies that DISH Network may have by reason of such default or breach by you at law, in equity,
under contract or otherwise (all of which are expressly reserved).
H. Other. No salesperson, installer, customer service representative, authorized retailer, or other similarly situated
individual is authorized to change the terms and conditions of this Agreement. DISH Network may, however, change the
terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time and from time to time in its sole discretion and will notify you if that
occurs. The terms and conditions of this Agreement that either are expressly stated to survive or by their nature would
logically be expected to survive its expiration or termination shall continue thereafter until fully performed. This Agreement
is in addition to any other written agreement(s), if any, between you and DISH Network, including without limitation any
installation agreement or customer agreement(s), if any, applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are
receiving Services and/or Equipment, and except as provided to the contrary herein all such written agreements shall
remain in full force and effect. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement to the contrary, any and all prior DISH
Network Residential Customer Agreements are hereby replaced and superseded in their entirety by this Agreement, and
such prior DISH Network Residential Customer Agreements shall be of no further force or effect whatsoever. In the event
of any conflict or inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any customer agreement(s)
applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment, the terms and conditions
of such customer agreement(s) shall be controlling. In the event of any ambiguity between the terms and conditions of this
Agreement and any customer agreement(s) applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services
and/or Equipment, DISH Network shall have the sole and exclusive authority to interpret and/or make a final
determination in its sole discretion concerning any issue arising from such ambiguity.
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).

device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not
cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
•
•
•
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Signal Strength Present at the Television
The attenuator provided with the satellite receiver will limit the signal present at your television set to below the FCC signal
strength limit of 75.6dBuV. If you choose not to install the provided attenuator, you must ensure that the signal strength
present at the TV set does not exceed 75.6dBuV.
Connecting to an Over-the-Air Antenna
In order to receive local broadcast channels, you may wish to install an over-the-air antenna into your TV distribution
equipment. When installing the over-the-air antenna, you must be careful to meet certain FCC regulations.
There are many devices that allow you to connect your antenna to your in-home distribution system such as splitters, and
amplifiers. The FCC requires that the isolation between the antenna port and the network port of your system meet the
following:
• 80dB from 54 MHz to 216 MHz, at least
• 60dB from 216 MHz to 550 MHz and at least
• 55dB from 550 MHz to 806 MHz
Measuring the isolation of a device requires specialized equipment. In most cases, it is easier to purchase a splitter or
amplifier with the correctly specified isolation from your local satellite television retailer. The above requirements are
extracted from 47CFR15.115. For the complete text please visit WWW.FCC.GOV.

Timers
What Is Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
You try to set up an event timer
and the receiver displays a
message noting that the
program is locked.
•
You must enter the password
before you can create an
event timer for a locked
program.
•
To be able to set up an event timer for the
program, first enter the password.
You try to set up an event timer
and the receiver displays a
message noting that the
program is a Pay-Per-View
event.
•
You must order a Pay-PerView event before you can
create an event timer for it.
•
To be able to set up an event timer for the event,
first order it.
You try to set up an event
timer, but the receiver displays
an Error message giving you
the option to delete an event
timer that was set up earlier.
•
You already have set up the
maximum number of event
timers.
•
To be able to set up a new event timer, delete one
of the event timers you set up earlier.
You set up an event timer, but
the receiver does not tune to
the channel of the program, or
does not record the program.
•
You may have set up a
Reminder but what you should
have set up is an Auto-Tune,
VCR, or Ext.
•
Remember that a Reminder just reminds you that
the program is about to start. An Auto-Tune timer
reminds you and tunes the receiver to the
program. A VCR timer reminds you, tunes the
receiver, and starts the VCR. An Ext. reminds you
and then starts recording on an external device.
You set up an event timer for a
program that is repeated (such
as a regularly scheduled
program), but the timer does
not operate for a showing of
the program.
•
You may have set up a timer
with an incorrect frequency.
•
Remember that a Once event timer operates just
one time. A Mon.-Fri. event timer operates
Monday through Friday on the same channel at
the same time. A Daily event timer does the
same, Monday through Sunday. A Weekly event
timer operates once a week on the same channel
at the same time.
You set up an event timer, but
the timer does not operate at
all.
•
You may have several timers
set up for the same time.
•
Delete a timer.
You stop the operation of an
event timer for one showing of
a program that is repeated
(such as a regularly scheduled
program), but the timer
operates for the next showing.
•
Stopping the event timer
applies only to the current
showing of the program.
•
To stop all operations of a repeated event timer,
you must delete the event timer.
Note: The receiver deletes a Once event timer
when it operates.
You edit an automatic event
timer. The timer does not start
or does not end according to
the program for which you set
the timer.
•
Editing an automatic event
timer converts it to a manual
event timer. Such a timer
starts and stops at the times
you specify, not the start and
stop times of any specific
program.
•
If you want an automatic event timer to start and
stop according to a specific program, avoid
editing that event timer.
You try to set up a manual
event timer. The receiver
displays an Error message.
•
You may have tried to set a
manual event timer with
invalid start or stop times.
•
Review the rules on start and stop times for
manual event timers.
The receiver does not display
the program name for a
manual event timer.
•
The receiver may not be able
to display a program name for
a manual event timer.
•
Use the Program Guide or a printed schedule to
find the program name.

Timers
What Is Happening
You set an event timer.
The event timer misses the
beginning or the end of a
program.
Possible Reason
•
The program may have
started a little earlier than
scheduled, or it may have run
over its scheduled ending
time.
What to Do
•
Use the Start 1 min. early option to start any event
timer one minute early, except for a Pay-Per-View
event.
•
Use a manual event timer to start any event timer
at the times you set yourself, except for a PayPer-View event.
Hearing A Program
What Is Happening
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 hear a foreign language
with a program.
Possible Reason
What to Do

You may have muted the
sound, or set the volume so
low that you cannot hear it.
•
Check the volume level on the TV or audio
device. Turn off the mute or turn up the volume,
as required.
•
The audio connections may
not be properly connected.
•
Check the audio connectors and cables from the
receiver to the TV or the sound system.
•
Check the TV speakers or the sound system.
•
In the Dolby Digital menu, select Dolby Digital/
PCM for the audio output. If your decoder/
amplifier will not accept Linear PCM digital input,
use the analog connections instead.
•
Use the Alternate Audio Language menu to
select the language that you prefer.
•
You have selected Dolby
Digital Only when there is no
Dolby Digital soundtrack.
•
You may have set the receiver
to select an alternate audio
language. The program may
be in a foreign language.
Caller ID
What Is Happening

Telephone for Voice/Data/FAX
What Is Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
While you are making a
telephone call, you hear
“clicks.”
•
The receiver may have tried to
call the Customer Service
Center to send Pay-Per-View
purchase information. When
the receiver found that the
telephone was busy, it
automatically disconnected.
•
You do not have to do anything. You can always
use your telephone line, because the receiver
automatically hangs up if it finds the line is busy.
You pick up the telephone to
make a call, but you do not
hear a dial tone.
•
The receiver was calling the
Customer Service Center to
send Pay-Per-View
information. When the
receiver found that the
telephone was busy, it
automatically disconnected.
•
Hang up, and then pick up the telephone again to
get a dial tone.
Your computer or facsimile
(FAX) machine tries to send a
FAX or modem transmission,
but fails.
•
The receiver was calling the
Customer Service Center to
send Pay-Per-View
information. When the
receiver found that the
telephone was busy, it
automatically disconnected.
The FAX or modem found that
there was no dial tone, and
cancelled the transmission.
•
Re-send the FAX or modem transmission.
Your computer or FAX
machine was receiving a FAX
or modem transmission, but an
error occurred.
•
The receiver may have tried to
call the Customer Service
Center to send Pay-Per-View
purchase information during
the FAX or modem call. When
the receiver found that the
telephone was busy, it
automatically disconnected.
This generated “clicks” that
caused an error in the FAX or
modem transmission.
•
Have the sender resend the FAX or modem
transmission.
Parental Controls
What Is Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
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.
•
N/A
•
Call the Customer Service Center at 1-800333-DISH (3474. You must provide the
following information: (1) your name; (2)
your address; (3) your telephone
number;(4) and the receiver serial
identification number.

Buying a Pay-Per-View Program
What Is Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
Someone orders a Pay-PerView program without your
permission.
•
You may have been away
from the receiver, and
someone else used it.
•
Lock the purchase of Pay-Per-View programs.
Remember that you are responsible for all PayPer-View purchases, whether or not you
authorize such purchases. If you lock Pay-PerView purchases, then anyone who wants to order
a Pay-Per-View program must enter the
password.
You find that you are not able
to order a Pay-Per-View
program.
•
The receiver may not be
connected to an active
telephone line.
•
You must connect the receiver to an active
telephone connection at all times. If you install
two or more receivers, you must connect each
receiver to an active telephone connection at all
times.
You find that you are not able
to cancel a Pay-Per-View
program.
•
You ordered a Pay-Per-View
program, and then decided
not to watch it.
•
You cannot cancel an order for a Pay-Per-View
program, whether it was just ordered or ordered
earlier.
Your setup includes more than
one receiver. You order a PayPer-View program, but it does
not appear via all of the
receivers.
•
You ordered a Pay-Per-View
program, and want it to be
available via all the receivers
in your setup.
•
If you want to watch a Pay-Per-View program on
TVs connected to up to six receivers, you must
order the program for each receiver but you only
pay for the program once.
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.
