Unplug the receiver from the AC power outlet before cleaning.
Always handle the satellite receiver carefully. Excessive shock and vibration
can damage the hard drive.
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.
Operate the receiver using only the power source type 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.
Ensure that the outdoor parts of the antenna system are grounded in accordance
with local, state, federal, and National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements.
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.
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.

About this Receiver
Your DISH Network satellite receiver has features that make watching TV
more exciting. Along with the integrated digital video recording (DVR)
functions, you are about to discover new ways to make programming
choices.
Remote Controls
Two remote controls coan be used with your receiver:
•
An Infrared (IR) remote control is included with your receiver. It
controls programming for a nearby TV and is labeled with a green
number 1, which matches similar markings on the receiver output
connections and the menus displayed for the nearby TV.

Introduction
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.
Satellite Signal Quality
Tip: If you lose
your picture, it’s
most likely due
to heavy rain,
snow, or the
build-up of snow
on your dish.
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.
Solar Interference
Twice a year, the sun moves to a position behind the DISH Network satellite
as it orbits the Earth. The exact time of the year that this occurs varies,
depending on the location, but it is near the beginning of spring and again
near the beginning of autumn. The period of solar interference lasts for a
few minutes at about the same time everyday for a few days during the
spring and autumn, so do not be alarmed when it happens.
This is an unavoidable natural event for all television involving the use of
satellites and has an adverse effect on many program providers. During
these brief periods, you will not be able to see programs on DISH Network.
Once the sun has moved from behind the satellite, the programs will
reappear.

Receiver Description and Installation
Receiver Back Panel
Tip: The six coaxial
connections on the
back of your
receiver are color
coded to make the
connectors easy to
identify. Inside the
front cover of this
guide are stickers
that are color
coded the same
way as the coaxial
connections. See
the installation
instructions
starting on page 24
for information on
how to use the
stickers that go on
the coaxial cables.
The receiver connections on the back panel are arranged in three groups:
• TV1 Connections - Use these connections with your TV.
• TV2 Connections - Do not try to use these connections with your TV.
• Other Connections - Use these connections with the dish antenna, UHF
remote-control antenna, and telephone line.
TV1 Connections
The following connections provide the menu displays and programming to your
TV.
TV CH 3–4 Out
The TV CH 3–4 connection provides good quality video and
mono (non-stereo) audio to your nearby TV. Use a coaxial
cable to make this connection. The TV CH 3–4 connection is
color-coded white.
RCA Out
The RCA audio/video outputs provide high-quality picture and full
stereo sound to your nearby TV (if your TV has these connections).
Use RCA-type cables to make this connection. If the TV has only

Page 21
Chapter 2
Receiver Description and Installation
satellite receiver and as many as three other devices. These devices can be your
TV, a VCR or DVD player, and a third device (an audio system or a second TV).
Types of Remote Controls
Remote Control (IR silver or IR
green) uses infrared, line-of-sight
signals to control the receiver.
IR light signals travel relatively short
distances (40 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.
This remote also uses IR signals to
control other devices that the remote
is programmed to control. You must
point the remote control directly at
these devices, with no objects
blocking the lines of sight to them.
This remote control may be identified
by a blank silver key or the green
number 1 at the bottom of the remote.
OPTIONAL ACCESSORY: Remote
Control (IR/UHF-Pro) uses UHF Pro
radio-frequency signals to control the
receiver from a remote location or
through walls or other obstructions.
UHF Pro signals travel longer
distances and can pass through walls,
the floor, and other solid objects. To
use the UHF Pro remote, for example
to control the receiver from another
room, you must first attach the UHF
remote-control antenna to the receiver
back-panel connector (see page 23).
The UHF Pro remote uses IR signals
to control other devices that the
remote is programmed to control. You
must point the remote control directly
at these devices, with no objects
blocking the lines of sight to them.
This remote control may be identified
by the UHF Pro logo on the key at the
bottom of the remote.
Page 22

Using 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 no more than four lists, each with the same or
completely different channels. For example, one Favorites List could have 100
channels and a second list only 10. Or all four lists could have 50 channels each.
• When you make a Favorites List active, the Program Guide and Browse
Banner display only the channels in that list. Also, the receiver skips those
channels that are not on the active list when you use the remote control UP
or DOWN ARROW button to change channels.
• The All Chan Favorites List contains all the channels available to you. You
cannot make any changes to the All Chan list.
• The All Sub Favorites List contains all the channels in your subscription.
You cannot make any changes to the All Sub list, except by calling
customer service at DISH Network and changing your subscription.
• Each Favorites List has a unique color in the Program Guide. You can
give each list a unique name, as well. When you first get your receiver, the
four lists are named List 1, List 2, List 3, and List 4. The lists are empty and
should not be used until you have added channels to them.
• If you choose a program using Themes or by entering most channel
numbers using the NUMBER PAD buttons, the receiver tunes to that
channel for that program whether or not that channel is on the active
Favorites List.

More About the DVR Features
Auto Recording
•
Whenever you turn the receiver on, it’s auto recording.
•
With the auto record feature, you can record as much as apprximately two
hours of a program. This total recording time applies to auto recording only;
you can set an event timer for program(s) of any length, limited only by the
amount of remaining free space on your DVR receiver’s hard drive.
•
The receiver needs more room to record programs with more action. So, the
total recording time isn’t exact.
•
After about two hours, the receiver begins to record over its oldest auto
recorded audio and video to have room for the newest audio and video.
•
If one program ends and the next one starts on the same channel, the
receiver continues to record the next program.
•
If you change the channel, you erase the current auto recorded audio and
video, and start auto recording the program or event on the new channel.
•
These auto recordings do not show up in the DVR Events list.
Page 69
Chapter 3
Using the System
Quick Recording
•
Quick recording works only when you set it up.
•
The receiver must have enough room to record on your DVR hard drive:
–
–
–
–
When you make a one-time DVR recording, you can set the receiver to
ask you before it records over what you have already recorded. This is
how you “protect” a recorded program or event. You can protect events
recorded from either of the receiver’s satellite TV tuners.
If the receiver needs room to record a newer event, it’ll record over the
oldest existing “unprotected” recorded event(s) to make room.
If the receiver is out of room, and you don’t let it record over any
existing recorded events, it won’t be able to record any new events.
To free up remaining space on the DVR receiver, you can erase events
by opening the Events Information menu and selecting the Erase
option. You can erase events recorded from either of the receiver’s
satellite TV tuners.
Copy Recordings to Videotape
Tip: If you want to
archive a recorded
event to save it for
a long time, you can
move it from the
DVR receiver’s hard
drive to a VCR tape.
You may want to keep a videotape copy of a recording you made on the DVR
receiver. Or, if the DVR hard drive is out of room to save new recordings,
maybe you’ll want to move older recordings to a videotape to store them.
Many satellite TV programs and films are copyrighted. In some
cases, copyright law may apply to private, in-home recording.
You will not be able to play back events with full, digital audio and
video quality from a videotape.
1. Connect the receiver’s back panel TV1 audio/video outputs to the VCR’s
audio/video inputs.
2. Put a new or fully rewound tape into the VCR.

Control Other Devices with the Remote Control
This section describes how to use an IR (or optional IR/UHF Pro) remote
control to control a TV, a VCR, or other devices. For information on how to use
the remote to control the receiver, see Using the Remote Controls on page 37.
You can set up both types of remote controls to control the satellite TV receiver
and as many as three other IR-controlled devices each. These devices can be a
TV, a VCR or DVD player, and a third device, like an audio amplifier or
receiver.
Where the word “remote” is used in the following section, it applies to both
types of remote controls.
Tip: The IR remote
control is used to
control the menus
and programming
on the nearby TV.
An optional IR/UHF
Pro remote control
can be used to
control the receiver
from another room.
Remote Control Modes
You can set the remote to four different modes to control the receiver or other
devices. When you get the remote it’s already set up to control your receiver.
You must set up the remote to control other devices like a TV or VCR/DVD
player. See Set Up the Remote to Control Other Devices.
Use the remote control’s device mode buttons, SAT (satellite receiver), TV (for
a TV), VCR (for a VCR or a DVD player), and AUX (“auxiliary,” for a second
TV, a second VCR, a DVD player, a tuner/pre-amp, or an audio amplifier) to set
the remote to the correct mode for controling the device. To change this mode,
press the button for the device you want the remote to control. The mode button
lights for a couple of seconds to show that you’ve set the remote to that mode.
Limited Mode
You can program your remote control in limited mode to keep from accidentally
changing the channel away from satellite programming on your TV or VCR.
When you use the remote to control your TV in limited mode, you will only be
able to use the POWER, MUTE, and VOLUME buttons. Also, when you use
the remote to control your VCR in limited mode, you will only be able to use the
power and VCR-function buttons. The section Setting Up the Remote to Control
Other Devices lists a step that tells the remote control to go into limited mode.
Set Up the Remotes to Control Other Devices
Over the next few pages we tell you how to use the remote to control a TV, a
VCR, a DVD player, a tuner, or an audio amplifier.
To use the remote to control other devices, you must first program it to control
these other devices. You can do this by either following the instructions that
follow in Set Up the Remote Control, or the Scan for Device Codes procedure
described beginning on page 87.
If you are programming the remote to control a combination device, such as a
TV/VCR or a VCR/DVD player, then program the remote control in one device
mode, and then repeat the procedure in the other mode. For example, to program
the remote to control a TV/VCR using code 748: Follow the instructions to
program the remote to control the TV using code 748, and then repeat the
instructions for the VCR using the same device code for that mode as well.

determine your code. The
mode button flashes the
number for each digit of the
device code, with a pause
between the groups of flashes.
A quick flash is for zero.
For example, if the code is 570, the
mode button flashes five times,
pauses, flashes seven times, pauses,
and flashes once quickly. This
example sequence corresponds to
device code 570; your actual code
will probably differ.
3. For AUX mode setup only:
The first group of flashes tells
you what the AUX mode is set
up to control. A quick flash
(zero) before the three-digit
code is for a TV; one regular
flash is for a VCR or DVD
player; and two flashes is for a
tuner or audio amplifier.
For example, if the TV code is 570,
the AUX mode button flashes once
quickly (indicating 0 for TV),
pauses, flashes five times, pauses,
flashes seven times, pauses, and
flashes once quickly. This example
sequence corresponds to device
code 570; your actual code will
probably differ.

Possible Reason
What to Do
•
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.
•
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.
•
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.

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.

Using the Remote Control
What Is Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
You cannot find the remote control.
•
N/A
•
Use the receiver front panel Control
Buttons to control the receiver until
you find the remote. If the remote
control is permanently lost or too
damaged to use, call the Service Center
to order a replacement.
When you press a button on the remote
control, the receiver does not do what you
expect.
•
The remote control may be missing
batteries, the batteries may be
incorrectly placed in the remote, or the
batteries may be weak or dead.
•
If the batteries are missing or dead,
insert fresh AAA-size batteries.
If the remote has fresh batteries, check
whether they are placed according to the
label diagram. If not, remove them and
place correctly.
•
You may be using the wrong remote
control (IR only or IR/UHF Pro) for the
TV you are trying to operate.
•
Make sure you are using an IR remote to
control a nearby TV or UHF Pro remote
to control the receiver in another room.
•
You may be experiencing interference
from objects near your receiver antenna.
•
Make sure the UHF antenna is
connected to the receiver and not
touching anything else.
•
Vary the tilt angle of the receiver's UHF
antenna. Locate the UHF antenna tip
away from other electronics equipment
or metal surfaces, even if separated by
wooden shelving.
•
Move the receiver to different locations.
For best results, place the receiver as
high as possible, above all other
equipment in your entertainment center.
•
Place the UHF antenna outside the
entertainment center by using a coaxial
cable to connect it to the receiver.
Your (optional) IR/UHF Pro remote control
does not work well from far away.

Troubleshooting Tables
What Is Happening
Possible Reason
When you press the remote control Power
button to turn the receiver ON, the receiver
front panel Power light does not light up.
You use a pyramid type IR extender (not a
“mouse tail”), and it does not seem to work.
What to Do
•
Other lights are too bright.
•
Try other remote control buttons to see
if the receiver is responding.
•
Remote control not operating properly
or the batteries are weak or dead.
The receiver power cord not plugged
into a power outlet, or there may be a
problem with the AC power.
•
Replace the remote control batteries
with fresh ones of the right size/type.
•
Check that the receiver power cord is
not damaged, and that the plug is
inserted correctly into the outlet.
•
The remote control(s) may not be set to
the address(es) used by the satellite
receiver.
•
Make sure the remote control(s) are set
to the same address(es) used by the
satellite receiver. See page 32 for
information on changing the remote
control address.
•
You may be trying to use an IR remote
to control a receiver in another location.
•
Make sure you are using the IR remote
with a clear line of sight to the receiver.
•
The TV2 indicator will not light.
•
This is normal. No action is required.
•
The IR sensor on the extender that
receives the remote control signals may
not be facing the remote control.
The IR cable on the extender that sends
the signal to the receiver may not be
right in front of the IR sensor on the
receiver front panel.
•
Make sure that the extender that
receives the signal from the remote
control is facing the right way, so that
the IR sensor can receive the remote
control signals.
•
Make sure that the IR cable on the
extender that sends the signal to the
receiver is right in front of the IR sensor
on the receiver front panel, so that the
receiver IR sensor can receive the
signals.
•
If doing the above does not solve the
problem, contact the manufacturer of
the extenders for assistance.
•
Use a pyramid-type IR extender only
with Remote Control 1 which uses IR
signals.
•
Install a UHF attenuator.
•
You are using Remote Control 2 which
does not transmit IR signals.

Possible Reason
•
You may have muted the sound,
or set the volume so low that you
cannot hear it.
•
The audio connections may not
be properly connected.
•
You may have set the receiver to
an alternate audio language.
What to Do
•
Check the volume level on the TV or audio device. Turn off the

Using the Menus
What Is
Happening
You were using a menu,
and it suddenly closed.
Possible Reason
The receiver has a time-out feature
that closes any menu after several
minutes of no activity. This will
discard any changes you have made,
but otherwise does no harm to the
receiver.
What to Do
Start over again.
Watching A Program
What Is
Happening
The receiver front panel
TV1 light is on, but the

Possible Reason
•
The TV set may not be working
properly.
•
Make sure that the TV set is plugged into an electrical outlet.
Make sure the outlet has electrical power.
•
If the TV and the receiver are
working properly, there may be
interference with the satellite
signal. The TV may be wired to
the wrong input.
•
Make sure that the TV is turned on.
•
If the receiver is connected to the TV using only the CH 3-4
connections, make sure that the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4
(whichever works best in your area) and that the receiver is set
to the same channel as the TV using the Modulator Setup
screen.
•
If the TV is receiving the signal through coaxial cabling from
the CH 3-4 output on the satellite receiver, make sure the TV is
tuned to the same channel as indicated in the receiver
Modulator Setup screen.
•
Make sure that the TV brightness and contrast are adjusted
correctly.
•
Make sure that the TV is connected properly to the receiver.
Make sure that the TV’s text mode and closed captioned
features are turned off.
•
If the TV is connected to the receiver using the RCA-type or SVideo connections, make sure the TV is set up to display from
the correct connected input(s).
•
Check that the system has been installed correctly. Make sure
that all required coaxial cables are in place, and check that all
cable connectors are tight and dry (for outdoor cables).
Make sure that the satellite dish has a clear line of sight to the
satellite. Check whether branches or leaves have grown into the
line of sight.
•
Make sure that the satellite dish is aimed at the satellite. Check
the strength of the signal using the Point Dish and Signal
Strength menu. Consult your installer to re-aim the dish, if
necessary, to obtain the maximum possible signal strength.
Note the local weather conditions. Heavy rain, snow, or cloud
cover may be interfering with transmission of the satellite
signal. Remove any snow or other debris which may have
collected on the satellite dish.
•
Make sure that the TV brightness and contrast are adjusted
correctly, and that the TV is working properly.
Make sure that the TV is connected properly to the receiver.
Check other nearby electrical devices as possible sources of
interference. Check that all required coaxial cables are in place.
Check for moisture or water leaking into all connections. Dry
them out if needed, then seal them with coaxial cable sealant.
Check the dish-to-receiver cable run length; if it is over 100 feet,
call your dealer or installer.

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

channels.
•
If your setup includes a multidish switch, you may need to do
the Check Switch procedure.
•
Do the Check Switch procedure (see the installation
instructions
for details).
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

Changing Channels
What Is
Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
You enter a desired
channel number. The
channel changes, but the
new channel is not exactly
the channel you entered.
•
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.
•
Carefully retry entering the channel number you want. Press the
remote control RECALL button to return to the previous
channel number.
You are scanning up or
down through the
channels, and the receiver
is skipping channels that
you know you have
bought.
•
If a Favorite List other than All
Chan is applied, the receiver
will skip channels that are not on
the applied list.
•
Select All Chan as the active Favorite List by pressing the
GUIDE button repeatedly. Unlock the receiver so that it does
not skip adult channels.
•
If you have set up the locks to
hide adult channels and the
receiver is locked, the receiver
will skip such channels.
•
If you want to buy a channel, call the Customer Service Center.
Using Favorites 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

•
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.
Using the Telephone for Voice/Data/FAX
What Is Happening
While you are making a
telephone call, you hear
“clicks.”
Possible Reason
What to Do
•
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.
The receiver cannot connect •
to DISH Network.
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 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

FAX or modem found that there
was no dial tone, and cancelled the
transmission.
Resend 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
mode 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.

Using Event Timers
What Is Happening
You try to set up an event
timer and the receiver
displays a message noting
that the program is locked.
Possible Reason
What to Do
•
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 per view
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 may have set up a Reminder
Event Timer but what you should
have set up is an Auto-Tune Event
Timer, or a VCR Event Timer.
•
Remember that a Reminder Event Timer just reminds you that the
program is about to start. An Auto-Tune Event Timer reminds you
and tunes the receiver to the channel of the program. A VCR Event
Timer reminds you, tunes the receiver, and starts the VCR.
If you are using Record Plus, it is
possible that someone at the other
TV may have cancelled the timer
when it activated.
•
Make sure you set up Record Plus timers when the other TV is not
being used.
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.
The program time may have
•
changed so that the event timer
overlapped another event timer.
The program time may have
changed by more than twenty-four
hours.
If the receiver is ON and finds an event timer overlap, it will
display the Event Timer Scheduling Conflict menu. You
must edit or delete one of the overlapping event timers.
No event timer will operate if the program time changes by more
than twenty-four hours.
You set up a Once event
•
timer, but the timer operates
at a time different from what
you expect.
The program time changed.
•
A Once event timer always operates at the actual time of the
program.
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 are testing a VCR code •
to see if the receiver controls
a VCR. The VCR does not
do the test.
The VCR may not be turned ON, •
there may not be a tape inserted,
the tape may not be rewound, or the
write-protect tab on the tape may
have been removed.
The code you are testing may not
be valid for the VCR.

You find the
receiver didn’t
on-demand record
a program.
What You Can Do
If the receiver runs out of room to auto •
record a program, it starts to erase the
oldest part of the program to make room •
for new audio and video.
To make sure you can watch all of a program, on-demand record it instead
of auto recording it.
If you want to be able to watch all of a program you’re auto recording,
don’t change the channel. You can only auto record for about one hour.
•
When you change the channel, you
erase what’s stored in auto recording.
•
You can’t watch part of a “live”
program that hasn’t been broadcast yet,
because the receiver hasn’t recorded it

•
Maybe you didn’t press the remote

Timer to record it.
•
To on-demand record a program, you must either press the remote control
RECORD button or set an Event Timer. If you set an Event Timer to
record the program, maybe the Event Timer was not set up right. See the
Event Timers table for help.
•
Maybe the receiver ran out of room
to on-demand record the program.
•
•
You may have had a signal outage
caused by bad weather during the
recording.
Check the “time Left” on the DishDVR Recorded Events menu.
If you “protect” many recorded programs, the receiver may not have
enough room to record any new programs.
You find the
receiver is missing
programs you
recorded.
If you don’t “protect” a recorded program,
and the receiver needs room to record a new
program, it may record over that recorded
program to have room.
Use the DishDVR Recorded Events menu to “protect” an on-demand
recorded program. This means the receiver will ask you before it records over
that recorded program. But note, if you “protect” many recorded programs,
the receiver may not have enough room to record any new programs.
When you open a
recorded program’s
info menu, some of
the options seem to

This Limited Warranty is a legal document. Keep it in a safe place. Remember to retain your Bill of Sale for warranty
service! Any items returned without a copy of the Proof of Purchase will be considered out of warranty.
What the Warranty Covers
This warranty extends only to the original user of the equipment and is limited to the purchase price of each part. EchoStar Technologies
Corporation and its affiliated companies (“EchoStar”) warrant this system against defects in materials or workmanship as follows:
•
LABOR: For a period of one (1) year from the original date of purchase, if EchoStar determines that the equipment is defective subject to the
limitations of this warranty, it will be replaced at no charge for labor. EchoStar warrants any such work done against defects in materials or
workmanship for the remaining portion of the original warranty period.
•
Parts: For a period of one (1) year from the original date of purchase, EchoStar will supply, at no charge, new or re-manufactured parts in
exchange for parts determined to be defective subject to the limitations of this warranty. EchoStar warrants any such replacement parts
against defects in materials or workmanship for the remaining part of the original warranty period.
Note: “Parts” means items included in this package, which may include the satellite dish assembly, receiver, LNBF, remote control, or dish
mounting hardware. It does not include other parts purchased separately.
What the Warranty Does Not Cover
•
•
•
•
This warranty does not cover installation of the system. If applicable, such installation will be warranted under a separate installation
agreement.
This warranty does not cover consumer instruction, physical setup or adjustment of any consumer electronic devices, remote control
batteries, signal reception problems, loss of use of the system, or unused programming charges due to system malfunction.
This warranty does not cover cosmetic damage, damage due to lightning, electrical or telephone line surges, battery leakage, fire, flood, or
other acts of Nature, accident, misuse, abuse, repair or alteration by other than authorized factory service, use of accessories not
recommended by the receiver manufacturer, negligence, commercial or institutional use, or improper or neglected maintenance.
This warranty does not cover equipment sold AS IS or WITH ALL FAULTS, shipping and handling, removal or reinstallation, shipping
damage if the equipment was not packed and shipped in the manner prescribed, nor equipment purchased, serviced, or operated outside the
continental United States of America.
Legal Limitations
REPLACEMENT AS PROVIDED UNDER THIS WARRANTY IS YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY. ECHOSTAR SHALL NOT BE HELD
LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FOR BREACH OF ANY EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY
ON THIS SYSTEM, NOR FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OF, OR INABILITY
TO USE, THIS SYSTEM. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL ECHOSTAR’S LIABILITY, IF ANY, EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE
PAID FOR THIS SYSTEM. EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ON THIS SYSTEM IS LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE PERIOD
OF THIS WARRANTY. ECHOSTAR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO HONOR THIS WARRANTY IF ECHOSTAR DETERMINES
ANY OF THE ABOVE EXCEPTIONS TO HAVE CAUSED THIS SYSTEM NOT TO HAVE PERFORMED PROPERLY. THIS WARRANTY
SHALL BE VOID IF ANY FACTORY-APPLIED IDENTIFICATION MARK, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO SERIAL OR
CONDITIONAL ACCESS NUMBERS, HAS BEEN ALTERED OR REMOVED. THIS WARRANTY SHALL ALSO BE VOID IF THE

Call the Customer Service Center at 1-800-333-3474. Have the date of purchase and either your customer account number, the
receiver conditional access number, or the receiver model number ready. Display the Important System Information menu
to find these numbers.
A Customer Service Representative will assist you.
If the Representative determines you should return any equipment, you will be directed to call a Return Authorization representative.
Before shipping any equipment, you must talk to a Return Authorization representative and must obtain a Return Authorization (RA)
number.
You will be given the appropriate address for which to return your equipment. Whether under warranty or not, you will be
responsible for the cost of shipping back the defective equipment. For faster service, see the Advance Exchange Program below.
Returned equipment must be packaged properly, using either the original shipping materials or the packaging in which the
replacement equipment is shipped. Include a copy of the Bill of Sale. Any items returned without a copy of the Proof of Purchase will
be considered out of warranty. Follow the instructions given to you by the Customer Service Representative.
Write the RA number in large, clearly visible characters on the outside of the shipping box that you use to return the equipment. To
avoid confusion and misunderstandings, shipments without an RA number clearly visible on the outside of the box will be returned to
you at your expense.
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.

For purposes of this Residential Customer Agreement (the "Agreement") and any customer agreement(s) applicable to the promotion(s)
under which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment from DISH Network (each, a "Promotion Agreement"): (i) "you" and "your"
refer to you, the DISH Network subscriber; and (ii) "DISH Network," "we," "us" or "our" refer to DISH Network L.L.C. (formerly known
as EchoStar Satellite L.L.C.) or, where applicable under the particular circumstances, third-party billing agents.
"DISH Network" is a registered trademark of DISH Network L.L.C.
THIS AGREEMENT, TOGETHER WITH ANY APPLICABLE PROMOTION AGREEMENT, SETS FORTH THE TERMS AND
CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH DISH NETWORK WILL PROVIDE ITS SERVICES AND EQUIPMENT TO YOU. THIS
AGREEMENT IS EFFECTIVE UNTIL WE CHANGE OR REPLACE IT. IF YOU ARE A NEW DISH NETWORK CUSTOMER,
YOUR ACTIVATION OF A DISH NETWORK ACCOUNT AND RECEIPT OF DISH NETWORK SERVICES OR EQUIPMENT
SHALL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU ARE AN EXISTING DISH NETWORK
CUSTOMER, WE WILL NOTIFY YOU OF ANY CHANGES TO, OR REPLACEMENT OF, THIS AGREEMENT, AND YOUR
CONTINUED RECEIPT OF DISH NETWORK SERVICES OR EQUIPMENT FOLLOWING RECEIPT OF SUCH NOTICE SHALL
CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH CHANGED OR REPLACED AGREEMENT. IF YOU ARE AN EXISTING
CUSTOMER AND DO NOT WISH TO ACCEPT ANY CHANGED OR REPLACED AGREEMENT, YOU MUST NOTIFY US
IMMEDIATELY AND WE WILL, AT OUR OPTION, EITHER CANCEL YOUR SERVICE OR ALLOW YOU TO CONTINUE TO
RECEIVE YOUR SERVICES UNDER THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
1.THE DISH NETWORK SERVICE
A. Services Defined. For purposes of this Agreement, the term "Services" shall mean all video, audio, interactive and other programming
services and all other services that are currently available from DISH Network (whether subscription based, pay-per-view based or
otherwise) and that we may provide to consumers in the future.
B. Minimum Programming Levels. If your applicable Promotion Agreement specifies required minimum programming, you must
subscribe to such programming. Otherwise, you must subscribe to one or more of the following programming packages, or we may
charge you a Service Access Fee (as detailed in Section 2(D)): DishFAMILY, DishMÉXICO, TurboHD Bronze or a higher version of such
packages; a Chinese, Greek, Russian, Polish, Urdu, Arabic, Portuguese, or Hindi language programming package; a combination of
Locals Only and one of TV Globo/Record Package, TV Globo a la carte, Israeli Platinum Package, Panorama Italiano, TV Japan, Polish
Premium Pack, Bangla Mega Pack, Punjabi Pack, Telugu Pack, Pinoy Mega Pack, German Language Plus Package, or RTVI/RTVI+
Package; or any of their successor packages. We may change such minimum programming requirements at any time.
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. Changing Your Programming Selection. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement or any applicable Promotion Agreement(s), you
may change your programming selection at any time by notifying us. A Transaction Fee (as detailed in Section 2(D)) may apply to such
programming changes, unless you are receiving Services and/or Equipment (as defined in Section 4(A)) pursuant to a Promotion
Agreement that requires you to pay in full for all Services and/or Equipment prior to receiving such Services and/or Equipment (a "PrePay Promotion").
E. 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.
F. Ordering Pay-Per-View. You may use your remote control and on-screen program guide to order pay-per-view Services through your
television if your DISH Network receiver is connected to a land-based telephone line and/or a broadband home network. You may also
order DISH Network pay-per-view Services by calling 1-877-DISH-PPV (3474-778) and using our automated system, or speaking with a
live operator at one of our customer service centers; in either case, a fee will apply as detailed in Section 2(D). Pre-Pay Promotion
customers may only order pay-per-view Services by calling 1-877-DISH-PPV (3473-778).
G. Accessing the Internet Through Your Receiver. Some of our receivers can be used to access websites and information on the Internet.
Neither DISH Network nor EchoStar Technologies L.L.C. ("EchoStar") has any control over such websites and information, and neither
we nor EchoStar make any representations, warranties or guarantees as to the availability or content of such websites and information,
including without limitation: (i) the accuracy, availability, sequence, completeness, timeliness, copyright compliance, legality, content,
validity, or quality of any such websites or information; or (ii) whether using the software contained in such receivers may result in
accessing unintended, inappropriate or objectionable content. We and/or EchoStar may change, limit, suspend, disable and/or remove
your ability to access the Internet using your receiver at any time without notice. We and/or EchoStar may also limit or restrict the
websites and information that you may access on the Internet using your receiver at any time without notice.
H. Private Home Viewing Only. DISH Network provides Services to you solely for viewing, use and enjoyment in your private home.
You agree that no Services provided to you will be viewed in areas open to the public, commercial establishments or other residential
locations. Services may not be rebroadcast or performed, and admission may not be charged for listening to or viewing any Services. If
your Services are viewed in an area open to the public, a commercial establishment or another residential location, we may disconnect
your Services and, in addition to all other applicable fees, you must pay us the difference between the price actually paid for Services and
the full applicable rate for such Services, regardless of whether we have the right to distribute such Services in such other location.
I.. Changes in Services Offered. We may add, delete, rearrange and/or change any and all programming, programming packages and other
Services that we offer, as well as the prices and fees related to such programming, programming packages and Services, at any time,
including without limitation, during any term commitment period to which you have agreed. If a change affects you, we will notify you of
such change and its effective date. In the event that we delete, rearrange or change any programming, programming packages or other
Page 117
Appendix
Services, we have no obligation to replace or supplement such programming, programming packages or other Services. You are not
entitled to any refund because of a deletion, rearrangement or change of any programming, programming packages or other Services.
J. Promoional Offers and Items. If a third party, such as an independent DISH Network retailer, integrator or private cable operator,
offered you a promotional offer or item in connection with your subscription to the Services, such third party is wholly responsible for
fulfilling such promotional offer or providing such promotional item, and DISH Network is not in any way responsible for such
fulfillment.
2. BILLING POLICIES; PAYMENTS FOR SERVICES; FEES
A. Payments. You agree to pay all amounts billed for Services, as well as all taxes, fees and other charges, if any, that are now or may in
the future be assessed in connection with any Services you receive from us, and any other charges due and owing to us. State and local
taxes or reimbursement charges for gross earnings taxes imposed on satellite providers for transmission of programming in some states
may apply. Unless you prepay for a multi-month subscription to Services or prepay for all Services as required by your participation in a
Pre-Pay Promotion, we will bill you monthly 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. Multi-month
subscription customers and Pre-Pay Promotion customers will be billed based on your pre-pay period (multi-month subscriptions) or
monthly (Pre-Pay Promotion customers), and must make all payments in advance of the due date on your bill in order to continue
receiving your Services; you must also pre-pay for all other Services, such as pay-per-view, ordered by you or anyone who uses your
Equipment, whether with or without your permission.
B. Billing Policies. Your bills will show the total amount due, the payment due date, payments, credits, purchases and other charges to
your account. 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 that we designate. Partial payments will be applied first to the oldest outstanding
bill. You must make your payment regardless of whether you receive a 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 (as detailed in Section 2(D)) is not interest, a credit
service charge or a finance charge. Certain fees and charges may apply in certain circumstances to your payment for the Services,
including without limitation, those set forth in Section 2(D).
C. Alterations to Payment Terms. If you pay for a monthly subscription (other than a Pre-Pay Promotion) and your account is past due on
more than one occasion, we may require that you pay for all Services and Equipment before you receive them, and you will be deemed to
be receiving your Service under a Pre-Pay Promotion, at which point, all terms and conditions of such Pre-Pay Promotion will apply to
you. If you paid for a multi-month subscription to any Services and your account is past due for any amount, we may convert your multimonth subscription to a monthly subscription, and we will first apply the amount you paid for your multi-month subscription to any past
due amounts and then to any obligations you incur in the future.
D. Fees. In addition to any amounts due for your Services and any other amounts due under this Agreement or any applicable Promotion
Agreement, you agree to pay the fees listed below ("Fees") if and when applicable. DISH Network may change these Fees, increase or
decrease these Fees, or impose additional Fees at any time upon notice to you. Discounts on certain monthly fees may be available from
time to time if you subscribe to certain programming packages and/or use certain Equipment. Additional fees may apply for non-standard
installations or if you upgrade your Equipment after installation.

Appendix
E. Restarting Your Services. If you do not pay your bill in full by its due date, or you at any time otherwise fail, neglect or refuse to make
timely payment for your Services, we may disconnect your Services, and in such event we will be wholly relieved from any and all of our
duties and obligations under this Agreement. If your Services are disconnected for non-payment or any other reason, DISH Network may
require that you pay, and you agree to pay, before we reconnect your Services, all past due charges, a Restart Fee, a deposit equal to a
minimum of two months' service charges (or in the case of a restart under a Pre-Pay Promotion, one month's service charges), and all
outstanding balances accrued through the date of such disconnection. If your Services are disconnected for non-payment or any other
reason, you will no longer be eligible, even if you pay to restart your Service, to receive any remaining credits or promotional pricing that
you would have been eligible to receive had your Services not been disconnected. Unless required by applicable law, deposits will not be
held segregated from other funds and will not earn or accrue interest. Promotional pricing is valid only at the time of installation.
F. Attorney’s Fees/Collections. . If we use an attorney or a collection agency to collect any money you owe us or to assert any other right
that we may have against you, including without limitation, any breach of any agreement you may have with DISH Network or one of our
affiliates, you agree to pay the reasonable costs of such collection or other action. These costs may include, without limitation, the costs of
a collection agency, reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs. If you believe you have been billed in error or you would like to make any
other requests for a billing statement credit, you must contact our customer service center by telephone or in writing within twenty (20)
days after the date you receive the bill for which you are seeking correction. Failure to timely notify us of a dispute will constitute your
acceptance of the corresponding bill. You must pay undisputed portions of any billing statement before the next billing statement is issued
or you must pay a Late Payment Fee. All payments for Services must be made directly by you to us, unless we authorize otherwise; 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.
G. Billing Agent Payments. Different or other payment and billing terms, conditions, options and fees may apply when billing is provided
through a third-party billing agent, including without limitation, a local telephone company.
3. CANCELLATION OF SERVICE
A. Continuation of Services. Your subscription to Services will automatically renew until you cancel your Services or we otherwise
disconnect your Services, in each case as provided herein or in any applicable Promotion Agreement.
B. Cancellation Policies. You may cancel your Services for any reason at any time by notifying us at the phone number, e-mail address or
mailing address set forth at the top of this Agreement. Please be aware that certain promotions have an optional or mandatory term
commitment period and if you cancel your Services prior to the expiration of an applicable optional or mandatory term commitment
period, certain early termination or cancellation fees may apply.
C. Disconnection of Services. In addition to all other rights that DISH Network may have to disconnect your Services, DISH Network
may disconnect your Services at any time without notifying 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 applicable Promotion Agreement; (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 this Agreement or any applicable Promotion
Agreement; (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) you commence any act or filing of bankruptcy or bankruptcy proceedings are
commenced against you.
D. No Credits. If your Services are cancelled or disconnected for any reason, you still must pay all outstanding balances accrued,
including without limitation, any applicable fees. Except in certain limited circumstances, charges for Services, once charged to your
account, are non-refundable, and no refunds or credits will be provided in connection with the cancellation of Services. If you received a
discounted price due to a promotion, and you cancel prior to any applicable expiration of that promotion, you are not entitled to any refund
or credit for the unused portions of such discounted price. 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 are not
entitled to any refund or credit for the unused portions of your multi-month subscription.
4. EQUIPMENT
A. Equipment. In order to receive Services you must purchase or lease certain reception equipment consisting primarily of a DISH
Network compatible satellite receiver(s) and applicable Smart Card(s), remote control(s), satellite antenna(s), and low noise block
converter(s) with integrated feed(s) (collectively, "Equipment").
B. Additional Tuners and Receivers. We may choose to allow you to place additional receivers on your account. If we allow you to do so,
each additional receiver will be authorized to receive the same Services as your initial receiver, subject to the limitations of your television
equipment. All of your receivers must be located at the same residence and continuously connected to the same land-based telephone line
and/or broadband home network. If you wish to receive Services at two different residential locations, you must open a separate account
for each location, unless otherwise specifically authorized by Dish Network. You may 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 land-based telephone line and/or broadband home network. 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.
Page 120
Residential Customer Agreement
C. Smart Cards. Receiver(s) are equipped with a conditional access card ("Smart Card") inserted into a slot or otherwise installed in such
receiver. Not all receivers with a Smart Card slot require a Smart Card for proper authorization. Smart Cards remain the property of DISH
Network at all times and must be returned to us upon our request. Smart Cards are not 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 has
been lost, damaged, defective or stolen, we will replace it, unless there is evidence of unauthorized tampering or modification, and a Smart
Card 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, in which case an Overnight Delivery Fee will apply.
D. PVR/DVR. DISH Network's personal video recorder/digital video recorder ("PVR/DVR") products allow you to record programming
in digital format. Total available 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, or that any such programming will not be deleted from
your PVR/DVR product. 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).
E. Telephone/Broadband Connection. To optimize the operation of your Equipment, you must continuously connect each DISH Network
receiver on your account to the same land-based telephone line and/or a broadband home network. Failure to connect each receiver to the
same land-based telephone line and/or a broadband home network may result in interruption or disconnection of Services. We may charge
you a TV2 Receiver Connection Fee for each dual-tuner, two-TV receiver that is not connected to the same land-based telephone line and/
or a broadband home network.
F. Receiver Alterations. DISH Network may, through periodic downloads, alter the software, features and/or functionality in your DISH
Network receivers; provide data and content to PVR/DVR products; store and remove data and content on the hard drives of PVR/DVR
products; and send electronic counter-measures to your DISH Network receivers. 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. DISH Network may from time to time cease supporting one or more
DISH Network receiver models.
G. Proprietary Components and Software. DISH Network receivers and Smart Cards contain components and software that are
proprietary to DISH Network and its licensors. You agree that you will not try to reverse-engineer, decompile or disassemble, nor will you
tamper with or modify, 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.
H. Software License. You are licensed to use the software provided in your DISH Network receiver(s), as updated by DISH Network, its
licensors and/or its suppliers 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 of such software, 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. 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, and DISH Network, its licensors and its suppliers reserve all rights not expressly granted to you. Except as stated above, this
license does not grant to you any intellectual property rights in the software provided in your DISH Network receiver(s). Any attempt to
transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations of this license is null and void. If you breach any term or condition of this license, this
license will automatically terminate.
I. Stolen Equipment. If any of 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 later 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.
5. LEASED EQUIPMENT
A. Lease Terms. We may choose to lease certain Equipment to subscribers. Unless otherwise specified in an applicable Promotion
Agreement(s), such Equipment (including without limitation, the LNBFs, but not the satellite antenna), shall at all times remain the sole
and exclusive property of DISH Network, and we may provide or replace leased Equipment with new or reconditioned Equipment at any
time, and upon cancellation or disconnection of your Services, remove or require the return of such Equipment. No leased Equipment
provided to you by DISH Network shall be deemed fixtures or part of your real property. We may make such filings and recordings that
we may consider necessary to evidence our ownership rights in such Equipment, and you agree to execute any and all documents that we
may consider necessary for us to make such filings. Our ownership of such Equipment may be displayed by notice contained on it. You
have no right at any time to pledge, sell, mortgage, otherwise encumber, give away, remove, relocate, alter or tamper with such
Equipment, or to tamper with or alter any notice of our ownership on such Equipment. Any reinstallation, return, or change in the location
of such Equipment must be performed by DISH Network at our then-current service rates. You shall not attach any electrical or other
devices to, or in any way alter, any such Equipment without our prior written consent. 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.
Page 121
Appendix
B. Return of Leased Equipment. Upon cancellation or disconnection of your Services, you must contact our customer service center or
call the telephone number set forth in any applicable Promotion Agreement to schedule the return of your leased Equipment. If you do not
return such Equipment undamaged and in working order, normal wear and tear excepted, you are responsible and must pay us certain
charges as described in any applicable Promotion Agreement.
C. Defects and Damages. You must notify us immediately of any defect in, damage to, or accident involving your leased Equipment. All
maintenance and repair of such Equipment must 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 notifying 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 Equipment or your account has an outstanding balance.
7. LIMITATION OF OUR LIABILITY
A. INTERRUPTIONS AND DELAYS. NEITHER WE NOR OUR THIRD-PARTY BILLING AGENTS, NOR ANY OF OUR OR
THEIR AFFILIATES, WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INTERRUPTION IN ANY SERVICE OR FOR ANY DELAY OR FAILURE TO
PERFORM, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION: IF SUCH INTERRUPTION, 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, SATELLITE OR UPLINK
FAILURE, ACTS OF ANY GOVERNMENTAL BODY OR ANY OTHER CAUSE BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL.
B. ALTERATIONS TO EQUIPMENT. NONE OF DISH NETWORK, ECHOSTAR OR OUR THIRD-PARTY BILLING AGENTS, OR
ANY OF OUR OR THEIR AFFILIATES, WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY ALTERATION TO ANY EQUIPMENT, INCLUDING
WITHOUT LIMITATION, REMOVING OR DISABLING FEATURES (SUCH AS THE ABILITY TO ACCESS THE INTERNET VIA
A RECEIVER).
C. LOSS OF RECORDED MATERIAL. NEITHER WE NOR OUR THIRD-PARTY BILLING AGENTS NOR ANY OF OUR OR
THEIR AFFILIATES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE RESULTING FROM LOSS OF RECORDED MATERIAL OR THE
PREVENTION OF RECORDING, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOSS OR PREVENTION OF RECORDING DUE
TO ANY FAULT, FAILURE, DEFICIENCY OR DEFECT IN SERVICES OR EQUIPMENT.
D. NO WARRANTIES. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED TO THE CONTRARY BY APPLICABLE STATE LAW, NEITHER
WE NOR OUR THIRD-PARTY BILLING AGENTS, NOR ANY OF OUR OR THEIR AFFILIATES, MAKE ANY WARRANTY,
EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, REGARDING YOUR DISH NETWORK EQUIPMENT OR ANY OTHER EQUIPMENT OR
ANY SERVICES FURNISHED TO YOU. ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY
DISCLAIMED AND EXCLUDED.
E. CONTENT RESTRICTIONS. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO IMPOSE ANY PROGRAMMING, INTERNET OR OTHER
CONTENT RESTRICTIONS ON YOURSELF, MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY AND HOUSEHOLD, AND GUESTS, AS YOU
DEEM APPROPRIATE. NONE OF DISH NETWORK, ECHOSTAR, OUR THIRD-PARTY BILLING AGENTS, OR OUR AND
THEIR AFFILIATES SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO ANYONE DUE TO, OR BASED UPON, ANY CONTENT (INCLUDING

EQUIPMENT; OUR FURNISHING OR FAILURE TO FURNISH ANY SERVICES OR EQUIPMENT TO YOU; OR ANY FAULT,
FAILURE, DEFICIENCY OR DEFECT IN SERVICES OR EQUIPMENT FURNISHED TO YOU.
8. WARNING AGAINST PIRACY AND INFRINGEMENT
A. Piracy. Receiving any portion of the Services without paying for them and/or any direct or indirect act or attempted act to engage or
assist in any unauthorized interception or reception of any portion of the Services is a violation of various U.S. federal and state laws and
of this Agreement. The penalties for violating such laws can include imprisonment and civil damage awards of up to $110,000 per
violation.
B. Infringement. Section 605(e)4 of Title 47 of the United States Code 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 punished in the same manner. Investigative authority for violations lies with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The 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 DISH Network or its suppliers or licensors, and is intended for home and other
limited pay-per-view uses only, unless otherwise authorized by DISH Network or its suppliers or licensors. Reverse engineering or
disassembly is prohibited.

any other reasonable means. If we send you notice by mail, on your bill or as a bill insert, it will be considered given the day after it is

forth at the top of this Agreement, and shall be deemed given when received by us at such mailing address.
B. Physical Address/Change of Address. When setting up your DISH Network account, you must provide us with the physical address
where your Equipment will be located and your Services will be provided. A post office box does not meet this requirement. You must
give us immediate notice of any change of name, mailing address, telephone number, or physical address where your Equipment is
located. You may do this by notifying our customer service center by telephone or in writing at the phone number, mailing address, or email address set forth at the top of this Agreement.
C. Online Account Information. If you have an online account with us, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your
account username and password and for all activities that occur under your account username and/or password. You must: (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.
D. 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 may apply. For example and without limitation: (i) 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; (ii) our third-party billing agents may require that you pay all past due charges for Services, a restart fee, and/or a
prepayment before we reconnect your Services; and (iii) 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 restoral fee and/or
deposit may be required to restore third-party billing agent services. Partial payments on third-party billing agent bills may be applied first
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. Please 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.
E. 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 credit reporting agency. Please include in any such notice the specific item of dispute and why you believe the information reported is
in error.
F. 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, the Services or the Equipment shall be
governed by the laws and regulations of the State of Colorado without giving effect to its conflict of law provisions. This Agreement is
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 will be considered 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.
G. Remedies Cumulative. The rights and remedies provided under this Agreement to DISH Network in case of your default or breach 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 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 or override this Agreement. DISH Network may, however, change this Agreement at any time 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 will continue thereafter. This Agreement is in addition to any other written agreement(s), if any,
between you and DISH Network, including without limitation, any applicable Promotion Agreement, 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, this Agreement replaces and supersedes any and all prior DISH Network Residential Customer Agreements in their entirety, and
such prior DISH Network Residential Customer Agreements shall be of no further force or effect whatsoever. In the event of any
ambiguity between this Agreement and any applicable Promotion Agreement, DISH Network shall have the sole and exclusive authority
to interpret and/or make a final determination concerning any issue arising from such ambiguity.

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.
REN for this equipment: 0.1B or 0.3B
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.

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 DISH Network 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

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.
Signal Strength Present at the Television
In order to properly install this satellite receiver, you will need to have access to specialized equipment that can measure the picture carrier
voltage present on the coax cable. If you do not have access to this equipment, it is recommended that you contact a professional installer.
The FCC requires that amplitude of the signal presented to the television set does not exceed 75.6dBuV.
If the signal measured at the television exceeds this limit, you are required to employ an attenuator, similar to the one provided with your
receiver, to decrease the amplitude of the signal until it no longer exceeds 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 distribution system. When installing
an 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.
