About Satellite Television
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.
Satellite Signal Quality
Rain and Snow Fade
Heavy rain, snow, or cloud cover can block the satellite signal, which can
interrupt your programming service. By aiming the satellite dish to get the
strongest signal during installation, you can help prevent rain and snow from
interrupting the signal. Your service will return after the weather condition has
passed.
Tip: If you lose
your picture, it’s
most likely due to
heavy rain, snow or
snow build-up on
your dish.

Chapter 1
Introduction
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.

might over-tighten the connections and cause damage that would
not be covered by the Limited Warranty.
The receiver back panel has ports you can use to connect the
receiver to other devices (you may not need to use some of these
ports). The back panel also has the power cord and phone jack.
DVI-HDTV/DISH DVI Connector
This digital connection will give you the highest quality video,
both in standard definition and high definition. Use a DVI cable
to make this connection to your HDTV or HD Monitor. If you
use this output for video, you must still connect the audio with
the RCA AUDIO OUTPUTS or the AUDIO DIGITAL OUTPUT.
YPbPr Component Connectors
This connection provides another high quality video output for high
definition viewing. Use a YPbPr cable to make this connection to
your HDTV or HD monitor. The cable is color coded to match the
connections on your receiver and your TV. If you use this output for
video, you must still connect the audio with the RCA AUDIO
OUTPUTS or the AUDIO DIGITAL OUTPUT.
This output connection is not active if DVI-HDTV/DISH DVI is
connected to a DVI display device.
S-Video
The S-VIDEO connection provides high quality standard definition
video output. Use S-Video cables to connect this output to an SVideo equipped device such as a VCR. If you use this output for
video, you must still connect the audio with the RCA AUDIO
OUTPUTS or the AUDIO DIGITAL OUTPUT.
Page 13
Chapter 2
Receiver Description and Installation
Tip: For the best
viewing experience,
you should use the
off-air tuner
provided in your
DISH DVI-equipped
DISH HD satellite
receiver. The
satellite receiver’s
off-air tuner can
receive both analog
and digital off-air
broadcasts,
integrate off-air
programming into
its Program Guide,
and allow all of the
satellite and off-air
programming to be
viewed over a single
high-quality digital
connection.
Tip: Tighten the
coaxial cable
connections by
hand only.
Phono (RCA) Audio and Video Outputs
Two sets of color coded RCA A/V OUTPUT connectors provide
good quality standard definition audio and video. Use phono
RCA-type cables to connect these outputs to a VCR, for
example, for use in recording. You can also connect the audio
outputs for use with either of the HDTV video connections
(DISH DVI and YPBPR) or the S-Video connection.
RCA Audio and Video Input
These input connections allow other devices (such as a VCR or
game console) to display content through the receiver audio/
video outputs. Use a phono RCA style cable to make the
connection to the outputs of other video source devices.
Note: While your receiver can convert the input to high
definition format on the DISH DVI or YPBPR connections, the
receiver cannot convert the picture to high definition quality.
These inputs are selected as sub-channels of Channel 0 from the
program guide. See Using the Program Guide in Chapter 3 for
details.
Audio Digital Output
Connect to the AUDIO DIGITAL OUTPUT with an Audio Digital
Optical cable (available at consumer electronics stores). This
connection point is for use with high quality sound systems.
8VSB TV Antenna/Cable In
This input connection receives programming signals from either
local off-air broadcasters in both analog and digital broadcast
formats or a cable TV system. Use a coaxial cable to make this
connection to an external off-air antenna or a cable TV service. This
connector is color coded black.
This input connection can only be used if your receiver
is activated with qualifying DISH Network programming.
UHF Remote Control Antenna
This input connection receives UHF signals from the remote
control. Connect the UHF antenna here, and set it so it
doesn't touch anything. Set the antenna straight up so you
can use the remote control as far away as possible. This
connector is color coded green.
Satellite In
The SATELLITE IN connection point is used to connect your
DISH Network antenna to your receiver so you can receive
satellite TV signals. The connection is made using RG-6
coaxial cable. This connector is color coded blue.

Remote Control Settings
Remote Control Settings
Change the Address
When you receive your system, your remote control and receiver have been set
to communicate on address 1. However, because UHF signals travel long
distances and go through walls, a neighbor's UHF Pro remote could control your
receiver by mistake if they are on the same address. Once all connections have
been made, to handle this problem, you can change the address on your remote
control and the receiver as follows:
1. Press SYSTEM INFO button on the receiver's front panel. The System Info
screen displays and shows the Remote Address.
Write down the address shown: _____________
2. Press and hold the SAT button on your remote control for about
three seconds, until all of the mode buttons light up, and then let
go of the SAT button.
3. Use the NUMBER PAD buttons to enter any number between 1

Receiver Description and Installation
UHF Remote Control Antenna
Attach a UHF Remote Control Antenna
Attach the UHF remote control antenna to the receiver's back panel REMOTE
ANTENNA input so you can use your UHF Pro remote control.
Note: Be sure to set the antenna straight up so you can use the remote control
from as far away as possible. Don't let the antenna touch anything.
Note: For best off-air reception use an outdoor antenna, but if you do use an
indoor antenna, ensure it is a few feet from the receiver. Do NOT place it on top
of the receiver because the off-air antenna can interfere with the UHF remote
control antenna.
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 operation, try any or all of
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 45° 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.
• Attach an attenuator between the UHF remote antenna and the
REMOTE ANTENNA input.
Page 18
UHF Remote Control Antenna
Add a UHF Attenuator
Stray UHF signals can block signals from the remote control to the receiver. To
prevent blocks, you can install a 10 dB attenuator. This will help keep out stray
UHF signals, but also reduces how far away you can use the remote control. The
attenuator is not supplied with this receiver.
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

Installing the Receiver
This section guides you through the installation of your new satellite receiver,
which includes the following:
• Connecting to your HDTV set or monitor.
• Connecting to your dish antenna and upgrading the software.
• Ordering your programming.
• Setting up to display in HD.
Connecting Your Receiver to an HDTV or HD Monitor
There are two ways to connect this receiver to display high definition
programming quality on an HDTV or HD monitor: using the DVI-HDTV/DISH
DVI connection or the YPBPR connections.
Note: Your new satellite receiver is factory-set to display in the 480p format at
its HD output connection points.
DVI-HDTV/DISH DVI
This video output port is the preferred method of connecting the receiver to a
DVI-equipped HDTV or HD monitor for best picture quality and simplest
installation.
1. Connect a DVI cable between the DVI-HDTV/DISH DVI connection on the
receiver and the DVI input on your HDTV set or monitor.
2. Connect an RCA A/V cable between the receiver PHONO (RCA) AUDIO
OUTPUTS and the HDTV audio inputs that go with the DVI input on your
TV or monitor.
3. Turn on your receiver and TV.
4. Consult your HDTV User’s Guide, then set your HDTV to display from the
DVI input. Confirm that you are getting a picture from the receiver.
Note: In most cases connecting the DVI cable will provide plug-and-play
control of the monitor’s display resolution and other settings. However,
your HDTV may require selecting a 480p format to display from the
receiver during this installation phase. Consult your HDTV User’s Guide.
YPbPr Connections
If your HDTV or HD monitor does not include a DVI input port, you can use
the YPBPR component video connections to provide high definition picture
quality to your HDTV or HD monitor. Make the connection using a color-coded
YPbPr cable.
1. Connect video and audio RCA type cables between the receiver RCA A/V
OUTPUTS and corresponding input connections on the HDTV or monitor.
2. Connect between the YPBPR component connections on the receiver and
the HDTV using component video cables.
3. Power on the TV and receiver using the front panel power button.
4. Consult your HDTV User’s Guide, then set your HDTV to display from its
RCA input. Confirm that you are getting a picture from the receiver.
Page 20
Installing the Receiver
5. Complete installation of the receiver with the dish antenna. See Installing a
Receiver in an Existing Dish Antenna System in the next section of this
chapter.
6. Order your programming using the instructions in Chapter 1.
Connection Diagram Example
The diagram below provides one example how the back panel ports can be used
to connect to an HDTV as well as connections for a VCR, and DVD Player.
Your installation may be different.
Tip: Using cable
labels makes it
easy to tell
which cables
connect to the
receiver ports.
Inside the front
cover of this
guide are
stickers that are
color coded the
same way as the
coaxial
connections.
Installing the Receiver in an Existing Dish Antenna System
Before you can begin connecting your receiver to your dish antenna, you must
first complete the preceding section on connecting your TV to the receiver. If
you are installing a dish antenna system for the first time, either call DISH
Network at 1-800-333-DISH (3474) or see the instructions that came with the
dish. Otherwise, if you already have a dish antenna system installed and peaked
for maximum signal strength, complete the following instructions to connect the
dish antenna system to the receiver.
1. Connect an RG-6 coaxial cable (see notes after this step) from the
SATELLITE IN port on the receiver's back panel to an available port on your
switch or LNBF in your existing system. Peel off the blue sticker and affix
it to the cable close to where it connects to the SAT IN connection on the
back of the receiver.
Page 21
Chapter 2
Receiver Description and Installation
Note: If you are installing your receiver into a system with DISH Pro
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, examine the
cable’s outer jacket, ask your DISH Network 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.

Receiver Description and Installation
6. Connect the AUDIO DIGITAL OUTPUT or the PHONO (RCA) AUDIO
OUTPUTS on the receiver, as needed, to the corresponding HDTV audio
inputs to hear sound.
Note: The default resolution on both HDTV outputs is 480p until the
receiver is authorized and subscribed to a qualifying programming package
and the desired HDTV resolution has been selected.
Connecting Your Receiver to a Phone Line
You must keep the 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
home Interactive TV features. Run a telephone cable with a standard RJ-11
connector from the receiver's back panel PHONE JACK to an active telephone
connection.
Note: You may be able to use a wireless telephone extender. However, this may
not support all the features of your receiver, such as Caller ID.
You must also set up the 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 (press MENU then 6-1).
Tip: If the receiver
is connected to
a phone line
with Digital
Subscriber Line
(DSL), you may
need to install a
DSL filter between
the receiver and
the telephone
jack. You can
obtain the filter
from your DSL
provider.
2. Select the Telephone System option (4) to display the Telephone System
Setup menu.
3. Select the Touch Tone or the Rotary/Pulse option in the Phone Type list.
4. If you do not need a dialing prefix to call outside your premises, select the
Save option, and stop here. If you do need to set a prefix to dial outside
your premises (for example, dial 9 to get an outside line), go to step 5.
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.
5. Move the highlight to the Outside Line Prefix list. Press the SELECT/OK
button to select the highlighted option.
Page 24
Initial Set Up for Off-Air Broadcasts or Cable
6. Select the Prefix Code option. The receiver displays the same number of
boxes (highlighting the first box) where you must enter the digits. Use the
NUMBER PAD to enter the prefix code. As you enter each number, the
highlight moves to the next box.
7. Select the Save option to save the settings.
Initial Set Up for Off-Air Broadcasts or Cable
The 8VSB TV Antenna/Cable input on your receiver's back panel can be used
to receive and view programming from an off-air antenna or cable service. This
connection can support viewing both ATSC digital over-the-air broadcasts or
analog NTSC over-the-air broadcasts. It can also support viewing analog cable
TV service.
This input connection can only be used when your receiver is
activated with qualifying DISH Network programming.
Tip: Using cable
labels makes it
easy to tell
which cables
connect to the
receiver ports.
You can add local off-air channels and assign them network affiliations. After
you have added channels, you can access the channels via the Program Guide
or the Browse Banner in much the same way as you would satellite channels.
Connect an external VHF/UHF off-air antenna or analog cable TV source 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.
Note: The type of antenna required depends on the channels used by, and the
locations of, the local broadcasters for your area. Contact a professional installer
if you are unsure about how to connect an external antenna to this input.
Note: Move all nearby off-air antennas away from the UHF remote antenna. Do
not place an off-air antenna on top of your receiver.
The audio/video quality on local off-air channels depends on the
distance and terrain between the broadcast station and your home,
and on the placement and quality of the off-air TV antenna you use.
If you have questions about off-air channels, contact the
broadcaster, not DISH Network.
Make sure to follow the antenna installation instructions correctly.
Ground the antenna per the National Electrical Code (NEC) and
any local electrical codes.

About Off-Air TV Broadcasts
Off-air TV signals are broadcast from stations on the ground, while satellite TV
signals are broadcast from satellites in space. You receive off-air TV signals
using an indoor or outdoor antenna instead of the satellite dish. You are likely
familiar with analog off-air TV signals - these are the signals that have been
used to broadcast TV for many years. New digital off-air TV signals are
broadcast and received in the same way. Digital off-air TV broadcasting uses
advanced technology like that of the DISH Network to deliver superb picture
quality and CD quality sound. However, digital off-air signal reception (like
analog off-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:
Page 29
Chapter 2
Receiver Description and Installation
• 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.
To get the best possible digital signal reception, make sure you use the best offair 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 of channels 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.
• The Consumer Electronics Association maintains a website,
www.antennaweb.org, that you can visit for help in choosing an antenna.
• You may want to contact a professional TV antenna installer for advice or
help in choosing, installing, and aiming an antenna.
Keep in mind, digital off-air TV broadcasting is in its infancy. So, digital off-air
service may be interrupted because:
• Broadcasters are testing digital signals, and may stop broadcasting without
notice.
• Many broadcasters do not yet have permanent broadcast stations and may be
operating at less than full power.
• Broadcasters are not legally required to provide full-time digital signals for
several years.
• Some digital channels do not broadcast all the time.
If you have questions about off-air channels, contact the broadcasters, not DISH
Network. DISH Network does not broadcast off-air signals and so cannot do
anything to change off-air signal quality. However, the receiver's digital channel
setup menus provide a signal strength bar that can help you aim the off-air TV
antenna for the strongest possible signal.

receiver to control the VCR.
Event Timer Types
Reminder - Reminds you that a program is about to start.
Auto-Tune - Reminds you that a program is about to start; tunes the
receiver to the program when it begins.
VCR - Reminds you that a program is about to start; tunes the receiver to the
program when it begins; starts a VCR to record the program.
Note: You can record only the program to which the receiver is tuned. If
you open any menu while recording a program on videotape, the menu
will also be recorded. If you change the volume or press the MUTE
button, the volume change may be recorded - depending on how your
TV and VCR are set up. If a start/stop program time changes by more
than 24 hours, the timer will not activate.

Special Consideration When Using Event Timers
For Locked Programs - You must enter the receiver password before you
can create an automatic event timer. You can create a manual event timer
for a locked program without entering the password. However, if you do
this, when the event timer operates the receiver may display only an error or
password entry menu. If you have set a VCR Event Timer, the VCR will
record only that menu.
For Pay-Per-View Programs - You must order a Pay-Per-View program
before you can create a timer for it.
For Blacked Out Programs - If you set a timer for a program that is
blacked out in your area, when the event timer operates the receiver may
display only an error. If you have set a VCR Event Timer, the VCR will
record only that error message.
Event Timer Performance when the Receiver is Off
If the receiver is off at the time an Auto-Tune or VCR Event Timer is
scheduled to operate, the receiver will turn on. Once the event has ended,
the receiver will turn off, unless you pressed any remote control or receiver
front panel buttons during the time that the timer was active.
If the receiver is off at the time a Reminder Event Timer is scheduled to
operate, the timer will turn the receiver on and tune it to the channel you last
watched. The receiver will then display the reminder menu. You will have a
few seconds to respond. If you do not respond to the reminder menu, the
receiver will turn off.
Setting Up the Receiver to Control a VCR
To use VCR Event Timers, you must connect the receiver back panel audio/
video outputs to the audio/video inputs on the VCR.
To use VCR Event Timers, you must set up the receiver to control the VCR
(see below). If the receiver cannot control the VCR, use an Auto-Tune Event
Timer to tune the receiver to the channel you want to record. Use the timers
built into the VCR to start and stop the VCR at the right times.
Setting Up the Receiver and VCR to Use a VCR Event Timer
The receiver front panel IR Blaster sends an IR signal to control the VCR.
This signal is strong enough to bounce off walls or other objects on its way
to the VCR. However, shelves or smoked glass doors between the receiver
and the VCR may block the signal. If the signal has to cross a very large
room, or bounce off curtains, it may not be strong enough to control the
VCR. For best results, make sure nothing blocks the signal.
Page 52
Setting Up the Receiver to Control a VCR
The receiver starts the VCR recording, but does not turn on the VCR.
Make sure you leave the VCR turned on. You must also have a videotape in

You may have aimed the satellite
dish at one satellite, but selected the
option for another satellite on the
Point Dish/Signal menu.
Make sure that you have selected the option for the right satellite on
the Point Dish/Signal menu.
Make sure that the cable(s) for the satellite you have selected are
connected to the LNBF that receives signals from that satellite.
Re-aim the satellite dish at the right satellite.
061
You may have interrupted the
transmission (a “download”) of the
latest operating software via the
satellite signal.
It is very important for the receiver to get the latest operating
software, so let the receiver do so. The “download” may take
several minutes. Do not disturb or unplug the receiver during this
time.
074
The receiver gives you three chances
to enter the correct password. If you
fail to do so, the receiver “times out”
and will not allow you to try again
for several minutes.
Wait a few minutes and then try again to enter the password.
Note: The “time out” feature is designed to prevent someone from
trying password after password until he or she happens to guess the
right one and so gains unauthorized access to the receiver.

Reference
You may not have connected the
receiver to an active telephone line.
Or, the telephone line may be
defective.
Connect the receiver to an active telephone line.
Make sure that the telephone line to which you connect the receiver
is working properly.
Note: To be able to order Pay-Per-View programs, you must keep
the receiver connected to an active telephone line at all times. If
your setup includes more than one receiver, this applies to each
receiver. The receiver uses the telephone line to make toll-free
calls, usually in the middle of the night, to send information to the
Customer Service Center.
Maybe the receiver is connected to a
DSL (Digital Subscriber Line)
phone line.
Install a DSL filter between the receiver and the telephone
wall jack.
You may have set up the receiver to
reset itself back to the “factory
defaults,” that is, the settings it had
when it was shipped from the
factory.
If you want to reset the receiver to its factory default settings, select
the Yes option. If not, select the No option.

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.
Hearing A Program
What Is
Happening
Possible Reason
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.
Check the volume level on the TV or audio device. Turn off the
mute or turn up the volume, as required.
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.

What to Do
Page 81
Chapter 5
Reference
Watching A Program
What Is
Happening
A “black box” fills almost
all of the TV screen.
The TV screen is all blue.
Possible Reason
What to Do
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.
Receiver may have captions on and
not set to Service1.
Turn off captions by pressing the MENU button, selecting System
Setup, then Closed Caption or, reset default caption options
using same menu.
You may have connected the
receiver to an input on the TV that is
incorrect for the signal output from
the receiver.

the signal output from the receiver.
Possible Reason
What to Do
Using the Menus
What Is
Happening
You were using a menu,
and it suddenly closed.
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.
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 at
1-800-333-DISH (3474).
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
in the Program Guide or
Browse Banner, but
find you cannot.
The Program Guide and Browse
Banner can display only programs
that have not yet ended. These
features cannot display a time earlier
than the present.
Contact the program providers for details on past programs.
When you are using the
Program Guide or
Browse Banner, some
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).

Troubleshooting Tables
Using Locks
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.
You may not have written down the
password, to keep it in a safe place.
Call the Customer Service Center. You must provide the following
information: (1) your name; (2) your address; (3) your telephone
number; (4) and the receiver information.
The CSC will send an Unlock code, targeting your receiver.
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.
Using Favorite Lists
What Is
Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
You press the remote
Guide button while the
Program Guide is
displayed. You find that
you can apply only the All
Chan list or the All Sub
list.
If you have not added channels to
any custom Favorite List, you will
be able to apply only the All Chan
list or the All Sub list.
You must add channels to a custom Favorite List before you can
apply it.
You try to change the
All Chan list or the All
Sub list. The receiver
displays an ERROR
message.
The receiver will not allow you to
change the All Chan list or the All
Sub list.
Choose another list to change.
Note: You can change the All Sub list by changing what channels
you buy.

Reference
You try to apply an empty
Favorite List. The receiver
displays an ERROR
message.
The receiver will not allow you to
apply an empty list.
Choose another list to apply, or add at least one channel to the
empty list.
A Favorite List does not
show channels that you
know you have added to it.
If you have set up the Program
Guide to hide adult channels and
the receiver is locked, the Favorite
List will not show such channels.
Unlock the receiver for the list to show adult channels.
Buying a Pay-Per-View Program
What Is
Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
Someone orders a PayPer-View 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 Pay-Per-View purchases, whether or not
you authorize such purchases. If you lock Pay-Per-View 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-PerView program.
The receiver may not be connected
to an active telephone line.
Your credit limit may have been
exceeded.
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.
Review your Pay-Per-View purchases to check the Smart Card
credit limit.
You find that you are not
able to cancel a Pay-PerView 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 Pay-Per-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.

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 nonmechanical 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

with technical and other customer support through the following toll-free number
and email address:

and, for general knowledge, try our website at www.dishnetwork.com.
"DISH Network" is a trademark of EchoStar Satellite Corporation.
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.
B. Programming Changes. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, you 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.
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 adultoriented programming services.
Page 110
Residential Customer Agreement
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
number:
1-877-DISH-PPV (347-4778) for ordering 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. 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.
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.
Page 111
Appendix
I. Fees for Receivers that Independently Support Multiple Televisions. Additional
fees may apply for a receiver which supports independent viewing of programming on
multiple televisions.
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.
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.
Page 112

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.
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 your Service is cancelled 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 may 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
Page 113
Appendix
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, and 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.
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.
Page 114
Residential Customer Agreement
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.
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.
Page 115
Appendix
Staying Legal
Title 47, Section 605(e)4, United States Code (U.S.C.) makes it a federal

FCC Compliance
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.
Telephone Communication
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the
requirements adopted by the ACTA. On the back panel of this equipment is
a label that contains, among other information, a product identifier in the
format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this number must be provided
to the telephone company.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected
to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may result in the
devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most but not all areas,
the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number
of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs,
contact the local telephone company. For products approved after July 23,
2001, the REN for this product is part of the product identifier that has the
format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the REN
without a decimal point (e.g., 03 is a REN of 0.3). For earlier products, the
REN is separately shown on the label.
This equipment uses the following Universal Service Order Code (USOC)
jacks: RJ-11C.
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and
telephone network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and
requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and
modular plug is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to
a compatible modular jack that is also compliant. See installation
instructions for details.
Connection to party line service is subject to state tariffs. Contact the state
public utility commission, public service commission or corporation
commission for information.
If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the
telephone line, ensure the installation of this equipment does not disable
your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm
equipment, consult your telephone company or a qualified installer.
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.
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.
There are no customer repairable parts inside. Any attempts to
repair the receiver will void your authorization to use it.
Radio Interference
This 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.
Modifying this receiver may void your authority to use the equipment. 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.
Refer to Troubleshooting in Chapter 5 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.
