Safety
Note to Satellite TV System Installer: This reminder is provided to call the satellite TV system installer’s
attention to Article 820-40 of the National Electrical Code (NEC) that provides guidelines for proper grounding
and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building as
close to the point of cable entry as practical.

•
Operate the receiver using only the type of power source indicated on the marking label. Unplug the
receiver power cord by gripping the power plug, not the cord.
•
Do not overload wall outlets or extension cords; this can result in a risk of fire or electrical shock.
•
Never insert objects of any kind into the receiver through openings, as the objects may touch dangerous
voltage points or short out parts. This could cause fire or electrical shock.
•
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or
circuits. When installing the antenna, take extreme care to avoid touching such power lines or circuits, as
contact with them can be fatal.
•
Do not attempt to service the receiver yourself, as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage, and will void the Limited Warranty. Refer all servicing to authorized service personnel.
Proper Care of Your Equipment
•
Always handle the satellite receiver carefully. Excessive shock and vibration can damage the hard drive.
•
Unplug the receiver from the AC power outlet before cleaning.
•
Always turn the receiver off, unplug it and let it sit for at least 30 seconds before moving it.
•
The use of accessories or attachments not recommended by the receiver manufacturer will void the Limited
Warranty.
•
Do not place the receiver in an enclosure (such as a cabinet) without proper ventilation.
•
Do not stack the receiver on top of or below other electronic devices as this can cause heat build-up and
vibration.
•
Do not install the receiver in any area where the temperature can be less than 40°F or more than 113°F. If
the receiver is cold to the touch, do not plug it in immediately. Let it sit unplugged at room temperature for at
least 45 minutes before plugging it in.
•
Use an outlet that contains surge suppression or ground fault protection. During an electrical 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 additional 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.

Additional Services
ADDITIONAL SERVICES
Pay-Per-View
Catch all the action on Pay-Per-View. Take a break from regular TV and order the latest
movies, sports, and special events. For details on ordering Pay-Per-View events, see
page 28. Be sure to connect an active phone line or broadband Internet connection to your
receiver before you order a Pay-Per-View event (see the instructions on page 91).
DISH On Demand
Enjoy movies and other programming any time without schedules, without waiting and
without leaving your home. For details on ordering DISH On Demand events, see
page 28.
DishHOME
On DishHOME (press DISH on your remote control), you’ll find news, sports, weather
information, TV and movie buzz, customer service, games, and more.
ABOUT SATELLITE TV RECEPTION
Satellite television uses satellites in a stationary orbit over the Earth to deliver television
and audio programming. This type of orbit enables the satellites to stay aligned over one
place on the surface of the Earth. Once the satellite dish is aimed at the satellite, the dish
does not have to move to follow it.
Rain and Snow Fade
Heavy rain, snow, or dense cloud cover can
reduce the satellite signal, which may interrupt
your programming service. Your service will
return after the weather condition has passed.
Aiming the satellite dish to get the strongest
signal during installation will help prevent rain
and snow from interrupting the signal.

Chapter 1
Why Connect to a Phone Line or Broadband
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 and has an adverse effect on many
satellite program providers.
WHY CONNECT TO A PHONE LINE OR BROADBAND
Your satellite receiver is equipped with a standard telephone jack that you use to connect
to an active telephone line. Keep the receiver connected to an active telephone line so
that you will be able to order pay-per-view programs using your remote control, use all of
the DishHOME Interactive TV features, and other services from DISH Network (see the
instructions on page 91).
Your satellite receiver can be connected to your broadband home network. Currently this
connection allows you to order pay-per-view programs using your remote control, with
additional features and services added in the future (see connection instructions on
page 93).
MOVING ON-SCREEN LOGO
Whenever the receiver is turned off using the
remote control or front panel POWER button, you
will see the DISH Network logo and helpful tips on
your TV screen. This feature is included with your
receiver to assure you that the connections
between your receiver and TV(s) are not lost, and
also provides useful information about your
receiver and its features. Press POWER or
SELECT on the remote control to resume watching
satellite TV programming.

QUESTIONS
•
•
•
How do I find something to watch? Refer to page 5. For more information on finding
something to watch, see Chapter 3 - Finding Programs to Watch.
Why are some of the channels red in the Program Guide? The channels that are
red in the Program Guide are those which are not currently in your subscription. If
you’d like to add channels, call 1-800-333-DISH (3474), go to
www.dishnetwork.com/myaccount, or use the Customer Support Application through
DishHOME (see page 44 for more on the Customer Support Application).
I’m looking at program information in a guide I bought at the grocery store, but
nothing matches what’s on my DISH Network receiver, is something wrong? No.
DISH Network programming may vary from what you’ll find in a local publication. For
best results, use the Program Guide on your receiver or order DISH Entertainment
Magazine.

Remote Control
REMOTE CONTROL
The remote control gives you access to all the features of your satellite receiver. You can
set up the remote control to operate the satellite receiver and up to three other devices
(see page 66). These devices can be a TV, a VCR or DVD player, and a third device.
The remote control uses Ultra-High Frequency (UHF Pro) signals which travel long
distances and go through walls and other solid objects. Be sure to connect the remote
control antenna to the REMOTE ANTENNA port on the receiver’s back panel.
Batteries
The remote control comes with AAA batteries. When you replace old
batteries, you should replace all of the batteries. Use batteries of the same
kind, for example, alkaline or carbon zinc. Don’t mix batteries of different
kinds. Alkaline batteries last longer. To change the batteries:
1 Press down on the top of the battery cover and slide the cover off.
2 Take out all of the old batteries.
3 Put the new batteries in. Make sure you match the plus (“+”) ends with the
plus markings on the battery case.
4 Slide the cover back into place.
Low Battery Warning
When you see a low battery warning message on your screen below the Program Banner,
the batteries in your remote control are weak and need to be replaced.
Attach the 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. Without the
remote control antenna, you cannot use the remote
to operate the receiver. See Adjusting the Remote
Antenna on page 64 for more detailed information
about improving the performance of your UHF Pro
remote control.

Tips
TIPS
•
You can set up the receiver to record Pay-Per-View programs. See page 56 for more
details.
•
You can prevent others from ordering Pay-Per-View and On Demand programs by
using locks (see page 38).
•
Keep an active phone line connected to your receiver so you can order Pay-Per-View
and On Demand programs with your remote control.
QUESTIONS
•
30
How can I order a Pay-Per-View event for all my receivers?
–
Order on each receiver, one at a time with the remote control. Make sure an active
phone line is connected to each receiver.
–
Order the event over the phone 1-877-DISH-PPV (347-4778). Charges may
apply.
–
Order the event online at www.dishnetwork.com/ppv.
–
Order the event over the phone at 1-800-333-DISH. Charges may apply.
•
I ordered a Pay-Per-View but can only see it on one receiver. Some Pay-Per-View
programs are restricted to one receiver per account.
•
Will I be charged more than once for ordering the same Pay-Per-View on two or
more receivers? If you’re using the remote control, you won’t be charged more than
once as long as it is the same exact event (for example, at the same time or All Day
events).
•
Why doesn’t my Program Guide show any Pay-Per-View channels? You may be
using a Favorites List that doesn’t include Pay-Per-View channels. Press GUIDE to
open the Program Guide and then press GUIDE again until you see All Chan in the
upper left corner of the Program Guide. See Chapter 5 - Favorites Lists on page 31 for
more information on using Favorites Lists. You may have Pay-Per-View channels
locked and hidden. See Chapter 6 - Locks on page 35.
•
Why are some Pay-Per-View programs blacked out? Sporting events and other
programs are sometimes blacked out because of local restrictions.
•
Why did my all-day Pay-Per-View program shut off while I was watching it? The
all-day events run from 3 AM to 3 AM (Mountain Time).

What are Favorites Lists?
WHAT ARE FAVORITES LISTS?
Favorites Lists are custom lists of your favorite channels. You can create and change the
lists, adding and removing channels as you wish. Your favorite channels can be grouped
into up to four lists.
•
When using a Favorites List, the Program Guide and Browse Banner display only the
channels in that Favorites List. When you use the remote control UP or DOWN
ARROW to change channels, the receiver skips channels that are not on the list.
•
The All Chan list contains all the channels, including channels not in your current
subscription. You cannot make any changes to the All Chan list.
•
The All Sub list contains all the channels in your subscription. You cannot make any
changes to the All Sub list, except by changing your subscription.
•
The All HD list contains all of the HD channels in your subscription, as well as overthe-air digital channels if your receiver is connected to an over-the-air antenna.
•
Each Favorites List has a unique color in the Program Guide. You can also give each
list a name. The four lists are named List 1, List 2, List 3, and List 4, until you change
the name. The lists are empty until you add channels to them.
•
If you choose a program using Themes or by entering a channel number using the
remote controls, the receiver tunes to the channel for that program whether or not that
channel is on the active Favorites List.
•
You can include over-the-air channels in your Favorites Lists if an over-the-air antenna
is connected to the receiver. See page 93 for instructions on connecting an over-theair antenna.
CREATING OR CHANGING FAVORITES LISTS
You can create, add channels to, and remove channels from a Favorites List. When you

•
If you try to access a locked item or open the Locks menu, the receiver displays a
message prompting you to enter the password.
•
The receiver allows three attempts to enter the correct password. If you fail to enter
the correct password, the receiver does not allow you to try again for several minutes.
•
If you enter the correct password, you can access the locked item or open the Locks
menu.
•
If you exit a locked item or close the Locks menu, you must enter the password to

What is DVR?
WHAT IS DVR?
The Digital Video Recorder (DVR) features let you watch TV the way you want. You can
pause, reverse, or skip back through a program. Then you can continue watching TV.
Also, you can record and play back programs with full digital audio and video quality,
without a VCR.
For example, if you get a phone call while you are watching a live or pre-recorded
program, you can pause the program, talk on the phone for an hour, restart the program,
and not miss any of the action.
You can move through a program forward and backward in slow motion or frame-by-frame
while using the DVR’s auto recording features while watching live or recorded programs.
PAUSING A PROGRAM
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’s 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.
For a live program, the on-screen pause timer shows how long you’ve paused the
program. You can pause up to one hour for a live program. If you think you might be away
from the TV for more than an hour but don’t want to miss any of the program, consider
recording the program (see page 48).

ENABLING RECORD LINK
Your receiver has a timer feature called Record Link. This feature sends data (audio,
video, and other commands) to an external device, such as the PocketDISH, which you
can connect to the receiver’s RCA-type outputs. This timer type allows the receiver to tell
the external device to start and stop recording, instead of recording to the receiver’s hard
drive.

Timers and Recordings
TIMERS AND RECORDINGS
A timer is your instruction telling the satellite receiver the programs you want to view in the
future. For most Digital Video Recorder (DVR) timers, you select a specific program on a
specific channel, and tell the satellite receiver how often you want to record that program.
DVR recordings are listed in the My Recordings screen, which you can find quickly by
pressing DVR twice on the remote control.
Timer Types
There are three types of timers:
•
DVR—records an event onto your receiver’s hard drive for later viewing.
•
Auto—automatically changes the channel for live viewing of the event.
•
Ext—automatically changes the channel for live viewing of the event and sends
commands to a compatible external device, such as the PocketDISH, which is
connected to your RCA-type or S-Video outputs. This option is not available unless
you enable the feature. See Enabling Record Link on page 49. This timer type allows
you to record to the external device, instead of recording to the receiver’s hard drive.
•
Reminder—creates an on-screen reminder when the event is about to air.
Timer Frequency
Deciding how often you want to watch a program will help you make the best choice:
•
All Episodes—records each time that program is on that channel.
•
New Episodes—records current season programs each time they occur on that
channel.
•
Once—records a program once (good for movies, sporting events, or other one-time
programs).
•
Weekly—records a program once a week, at that time, on that channel.
•
Daily—records a program once a day, at that time, on that channel.
•
Monday-Friday—records a program once a day, Monday through Friday, at the
selected time, on that channel.
•
DishPASS—records programs on all channels (default) or a specific channel, based
on your specific criteria. See page 58 for details.
Timer Priorities
Priorities are used by the receiver to know which program you would prefer to record, if
multiple timers are scheduled to start at the same time. This receiver can only record two
satellite programs at one time. If three programs are scheduled to record at the same time,
priorities tells the receiver which two programs to record.
52
•
All timers have a priority that you can change at any time.
•
The larger the number, the lower the priority (for example, priority 1 is higher than
priorities 2, 3, and 4).
Record Future Programs
Using the Timers List
•
You can override a specific timer's priority by skipping or restoring a specific program.
Select a timer in the Daily Schedule, then you'll have an option to Skip or Restore for
that timer (see page 54).
Timer Options
The Timer Options screen lets you set the following:
Note: Not all options not available for all timer types.
•
Protect Event—prevents your programs from being erased when the receiver fills up.
•
Set Channel—select a specific channel.
•
HD Preference, HD Only, or SD Only—tell the timer if you prefer to record matching
programs in HD if available, if you only want to record the program if it is broadcast in
HD, or if you only want to record the program if it is broadcast in SD.
•
Start Early—select this option if you want to begin recording a few minutes early.
•
End Late—select this option if you want to continue recording after the scheduled
program ending.
USING THE TIMERS LIST

Using the Daily Schedule
USING THE DAILY SCHEDULE
The Daily Schedule lists the timers that are planned for today, up to nine days in the
future, and those that occurred in the recent past. Use the Daily Schedule to:
•
Review today's timers. You can choose to skip a scheduled timer, or restore a timer
that was not planned to occur, perhaps because of a conflict with another program.
See Timer Priorities on page 52.
•
Review future timers, up to nine days in advance, and make changes as necessary.
•
Review past timers to see which occurred, and the reason why one did not, if
applicable. See Reasons Why Timers are Skipped on page 55.
Use the ARROWS to select a future program to Skip or Restore. You can also choose to
Protect it, or view the start early/end late settings.
54
•
To change the start early/end late setting, select the event within the Timers List.
•
Press PAGE UP to see the previous days' timers. Review these timers to see the
result of your timers (for example, if it recorded successfully or why it might have been
skipped).
Record Future Programs
Using the Daily Schedule
Reasons Why Timers are Skipped
If a timer is skipped, the reason is stated on the Timers List.
•
Priority—this timer had a lower priority than other events being recorded at the time.
•
User—a user chose to skip that timer.
•
Duplicate event—there is already another timer set to record that program.
•
Event exists in DVR—the program was already recorded and can be seen in the
Daily Schedule list.
•
Not a new episode—used for New Episode timers. Currently, a New Episode is one
that has the current year listed in the Program Guide information.
•
Incorrect event—for Weekly, Daily and Monday-Friday timers. If the guide has a
different event listed the timer will be skipped. For example, the timer was set up on a
Saturday for Daily, but the program is broadcast only Monday-Friday, so the timer will
be skipped on the weekends.
When a Timer Starts a Recording
For two minutes before an timer starts a recording, the receiver may
display a digital countdown (timer reminder) on the TV screen. This
countdown disappears when the program begins. While the
countdown is displayed, you can:
•
Press CANCEL to clear the symbol from the TV screen. This does not stop the timer
from starting.
•
Press INFO or SELECT to see more information on the timer. If you do this, you have
the following choices:
–
Select OK to continue with the timer.
–
Select Stop Timer to stop the timer.
Note: Pressing INFO on the timer reminder only works one time. Subsequently
pressing INFO results in the current program’s information being displayed.
When the Receiver is Off
If the receiver is off when a timer is scheduled, the receiver will:
•
DVR Timer Type—remain off but will record the scheduled event.
•
Auto Timer Type—turn on for the event and tune to the correct channel.
•
Reminder Timer Type—turn on at the scheduled time. After a period of time, if you
do nothing, the receiver will turn off.
•
Ext. Timer Type—turn on for the event and commands the connected external device
to record. The external device must be connected to the receiver’s RCA-type or SVIDEO output and must be turned on when the timer starts.

an automatic timer. You can create a manual timer for a locked program without
entering the password. However, if you do this, when the timer operates the receiver
may display only an error or password entry 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 timer operates the receiver may only display an error.

Creating a DishPASS™ Timer
CREATING A DISHPASS™ TIMER
DishPASS lets you create timers to record programs automatically based on your search
terms. When the receiver finds programs that meet your search term, it will automatically
set a timer to record that program. As the program guide is updated, DishPASS will
continue to find and record your shows based upon your search criteria.
An example of how to use DishPASS may be that you saw a movie in the theaters and
you want to watch it again as soon as it comes out on a movie channel. Use the Exact
Match and Title options, and then type the exact title of the movie. If the movie is made
available on a movie channel you subscribe to, the receiver will automatically set a timer
to record that movie for you.
1 Press MENU and select Daily Schedule.
2 Select DishPASS.
3 Select the Search Method:
•
Title—search for programs by title.
•
Info—search for programs whose descriptions or titles contain key words.
4 Optionally, select Exact Match if you want to find only programs that match exactly what
you’ve entered in either the program title or info.
5 Enter your search term. You can use the on-screen keyboard or the remote control’s
alpha-numeric keypad while the highlight is in the Enter Search Criteria field. See Using
Text Fields on page 18 for instructions.
6 Select Options as described on page 53.
7 Select Create Timer. When the receiver has completed your search, the Timer Schedule
will display the results.
Note: After entering your search words, and selecting Create Timer, be sure to review the
timers that DishPASS creates—some may not be what you are expecting. You can:
•
Pick selected events to Skip. Review future timers each time the Program Guide is
updated.
•

Tips
TIPS
•
Make sure the Updates feature is enabled as described on page 83. This feature
ensures the Program Guide will have the most up-to-date information, and can adjust
or create timers accordingly.
•
Weekly, Daily, and Monday-Friday timers move only if the program is within one hour
earlier or four hours later than the original time the timer was set up. These timers will
adjust their length if their program's time block is extended and the change is reflected
in the Program Guide.
•
DishPASS recordings may fill the hard drive quickly. If you have other timers you
know you don't want to be recorded over, choose Protect on those important
programs.
•
DVR Timers set for sporting events typically have an end late time of 60 minutes to
allow for overtime. Change this setting in Options when you set up the timer.
QUESTIONS
60
•
Why is my receiver recording programs I didn’t schedule? A DishPASS Timer
may include more programs than you planned. If you’d like to refine your search,
delete the DishPASS Timer and start again as described on page 58.
•
Why did the receiver delete a program I recorded? Your recording was
unprotected. When the receiver fills, it writes over the oldest unprotected recording.
You can protect your recordings as described on page 53.
•
Where can I go to find out why the receiver didn’t record something I
scheduled? Look at your Daily Schedule and refer to Reasons Why Timers are

Changing the Remote Control from UHF Pro to IR
Your receiver accepts both UHF and IR (Infrared) commands. The remote control only
outputs UHF Pro signals but can be changed to transmit IR commands by switching the
key at the bottom. This is also useful for programming an after-market universal learning
remote control to operate your receiver. Note that when the remote control is in IR mode,
you will need to use it from the same room to operate the receiver because IR signals do
not travel through walls or over great distances.
63
Chapter 10
Improving Receiver Control
Adjusting the Remote Antenna
Be sure to set the remote control antenna on the back of the receiver straight up to
improve its operation. The remote control antenna should be angled away so the tip is
separated from the electronics by a couple of inches, if possible.
If your UHF Pro Remote Control isn't working very well from far away, you may
be experiencing interference from objects near your receiver. To improve your
remote control's range, try the following steps:
–
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.
–
Move the remote control antenna away from the back of the entertainment center
wiring and other electronics using a short piece of coaxial cable (3 to 5 feet).
–
Try moving the receiver to another location in the entertainment center.
–
Connect an F-connector attenuator (between 6dB and 15dB) between the
REMOTE ANTENNA port and the remote control antenna, which may improve performance in certain circumstances. This solution works best when the remote
control is being used within 75 feet of the receiver.
Changing the UHF Frequency Using the A/B Switch
Your remote has a switch to change the UHF frequency that your remote control uses. It
comes preset to the A position but you can change the setting to the B position to lessen
the likelihood of any other UHF remote interfering with yours.
2 Use a small screw driver or a paper clip to carefully change the setting.

Remote Control Setup
Improving Receiver Control
Installing a UHF Attenuator
Unwanted UHF signals may interfere with signals from the remote control to the receiver.
To prevent such interference, you can install an F-connector attenuator between 6dB and
15dB. Attenuators are available from many consumer electronics parts stores. Adding this
attenuator will help reduce interference from other devices, but it also cuts down how far
away you can use the remote control.
1 Remove the remote control antenna
from the REMOTE ANTENNA input on
the receiver back panel.
2 Attach an attenuator (between 6dB
and 15dB) to the REMOTE ANTENNA

back to watching satellite programming. This procedure works only if you have
accidentally changed the TV channel or video input. It does not recover lost satellite signal
(see Troubleshooting Tables on page 100 for information on solving problems).
Note: The remote control must be programmed to operate the TV (and VCR, if applicable)
for RECOVER to work as described. RECOVER will first try to tune your TV to channel 3,
then channel 4, and then other video inputs with each press of RECOVER. You may need
to press RECOVER multiple times to recover your satellite TV video.

My remote doesn’t control my receiver or other components. What should I do?
–
Put the remote control is in the correct mode (page 66).
–
Check the batteries (page 13).
–
Check the remote control address (pages 62 and 69).
–
Check or adjust the UHF antenna (page 13 and 62).
Why does my receiver change channels or display menus at random? Your
neighbor may have their remote control set on the same address. Change the
address on your remote control and receiver as described on page 62. If that doesn’t
help, you may have to install a UHF attenuator as described on page 65.

tech.dishnetwork.com and search for “home networking” for detailed instructions on
making this type of connection.
CONNECTING AN OVER-THE-AIR ANTENNA
If you want to receive digital channels from an over-the-air antenna in addition to your
satellite receiver programming, connect the over-the-air antenna to your satellite receiver.
•
The OVER-THE-AIR ANTENNA IN connection on your receiver's back panel can be used
to receive and view programming on the TV from an over-the-air antenna.
•
Connect a VHF/UHF over-the-air antenna to the OVER-THE-AIR ANTENNA IN port. Peel
off the black sticker (found at the beginning of this User’s Guide) and affix it to the
cable close to where it connects to the back of the receiver.
•
You can add local over-the-air channels to the receiver’s channels lists and assign
them network affiliations. Once you have done this, you can access the channels via
the Program Guide or the Browse Banner similar to accessing satellite channels.
Note: The type of antenna required depends on the channels used by, and the locations
of, the local broadcasters for your area. Visit www.antennaweb.org or contact a
professional installer to help you select a suitable antenna.
Make sure to follow the antenna installation instructions correctly. Ground an
outdoor antenna per the National Electrical Code (NEC) and any state and local
electrical codes.
The audio/video quality on local over-the-air channels depends on the distance
and terrain between the broadcast station and your home, and on the
placement and quality of the over-the-air TV antenna you use. If you have
questions about over-the-air channels, contact the broadcaster, not DISH
Network.

About Over-the-Air TV Broadcasts
Over-the-air TV signals are broadcast by local TV stations from a transmitter tower. You
receive over-the-air TV signals using an indoor or outdoor antenna instead of the satellite
dish. You are likely familiar with analog over-the-air TV signals - these are the signals that
have been used to broadcast TV for many years. New digital over-the-air TV signals are
broadcast and received in the same way. Digital over-the-air TV broadcasting uses
advanced technology like that of the DISH Network to deliver superb picture quality and
CD quality sound. However, digital over-the-air signal reception (like analog over-the-air
signal reception) depends on several things.
•
The distance between the broadcast station and your home (the farther away the
station, the weaker the signal)
•
The broadcast station's power (the lower the power, the weaker the signal)
•
Obstacles between the station and your home, such as mountains, buildings, trees, or
other objects (these may block or reflect the signal before it reaches you)
•
Multiple broadcast stations (to receive good signals from several stations, you may
need to compromise in how you aim the antenna or you may need more than one
antenna)
The effects of poor digital reception are different from the effects of poor analog reception:
•
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.
95
Chapter 12
Scanning for Over-the-Air Channels
•
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 over-the-air
antenna for where you live:
•
You can receive a limited number of channels using a rabbit ears type antenna on top
of the TV set, or a much larger number via a large UHF/VHF indoor/outdoor antenna.
•
The higher the quality of the antenna you use, the greater its range and the better its
reception will be.
Digital OTA Broadcasts are Still Developing
•
Broadcasters may still be testing digital signals and their strength, and may stop
broadcasting without notice, vary power output, or turn it off.
•
Some broadcasters do not yet have permanent transmitter tower.
•
Broadcasters may choose to multicast, which allows them to provide multiple
standard-definition channels in the same bandwidth used to provide a high-definition
channel.
•
These factors are outside of DISH Network's control.
Additional Installation Considerations
•
Follow local and National Electric Code requirements for grounding the antenna.
•
RG-6 coaxial cable is preferred for the OVER THE AIR ANTENNA IN connection. If you
are diplexing the OVER THE AIR ANTENNA IN and SATELLITE IN cables, RG-6 coaxial
cable must be used.
•
You can not use a diplexer to combine the OVER THE AIR ANTENNA IN and SATELLITE
IN cables if using an amplified antenna.
If you have questions about over-the-air channels, contact the broadcasters, not DISH
Network. DISH Network does not broadcast over-the-air signals and so cannot do
anything to change over-the-air signal quality. However, the receiver's digital channel
setup menus provide a signal strength bar that can help you in aiming the over-the-air TV
antenna for the strongest possible signal.
Additional Resources for Over-the-Air TV Broadcasts
For information on channel numbers, you can visit the National Association of
Broadcasters (NAB) web page at www.nab.org.
Note: The receiver displays “Transmit Channel” which is referred to on the NAB web page
as RF Channel. These terms mean the same thing.
Another good source of local channel information is available from the Consumer
Electronics Association (CEA) web page at: www.antennaweb.org. This website provides
recommendations for antenna types and pointing directions.

to your TV’s user guide for
assistance.
• Make sure that the TV is connected
properly to the receiver. Refer to
Chapter 12 beginning on page 85.
• 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 length of cable between
your dish and receiver. If it is greater
than 200 feet, contact the person who
installed your system.
• Make sure the system is properly
grounded.
A “black box” fills almost all of the TV
screen.
You may have turned on the
Closed Captioning feature on
the TV, and put that feature into
Text mode.
• Turn off Closed Captioning through
your TV’s menus. Refer to page 81 to
enable Closed Captioning through
your receiver.
The TV image has pixels (small
squares), is freezing, or you have
intermittent black screens.

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, All Sub, or All
HD list.
If you have not added channels
to any custom Favorites List, you
will be able to apply only the All
Chan, All Sub, or All HD lists.
You must add channels to a custom
Favorites List before you can apply it.
You try to change the
All Chan, All Sub, or All HD list. The
receiver displays an ERROR
message.
The receiver will not allow you to
change the All Chan, All Sub, or
All HD lists.
Choose another list to change. The All
Sub list includes all channels that are
part of your subscription. The All HD list
includes all high-definition channels that
are part of your subscription.
You try to apply an empty Favorites
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 Favorites List does not show
channels that you know you have
added to it.
If you have set the receiver to
hide adult channels or hide
locked channels, these channels
are not included in the Program
Guide or other channel lists.
Change the Hide Adult or Hide Locked
setting on your receiver if you do not
want these channels excluded from the
Program Guide or other channel lists.
Refer to page 38.
What Is Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
You try to set up an event timer and
the receiver displays a message
noting that the program is locked.
You must enter the password
before you can create an event
timer for a locked program.
To create 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-PerView event.
You must order a Pay-Per-View
event before you can create an
event timer for it.
To create an event timer for the event,
first order it.
You try to set up an event timer, but
the receiver displays an Error
message giving you the option to
delete an event timer that was set up
earlier.
You already have set up the
maximum number of event
timers.
To be able to set up a new event timer,
delete one of the event timers you set
up earlier.
You set up an event timer, but the
receiver does not tune to the channel
of the program, or does not record the
program.
You may have set up a
Reminder but what you should
have set up is an Auto-Tune or a
DVR timer.
Remember that a Reminder just
reminds you that the program is about to
start. An Auto-Tune timer reminds you
and tunes the receiver to the program. A
DVR timer reminds you, tunes the
receiver, and records the program to the
receiver’s hard drive.

What Is Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
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. All
Episodes timers will record all episodes
of that program, while New Episodes
timers will record only the current
season. A DishPASS timer records
programs matching your DishPASS
search term.
You set up an event timer, but the
timer does not operate at all.
• You may have several timers
set up for the same time and
the event timer you set is at a
lower priority than others.
• You may have selected New
Episodes and the timer you
set was for an episode that is
not new.
• Check the Priorities as described on
page 52.
• Check the Timer Frequency as
described on page 52.
You set up a DishPASS Timer and
you notice that you have no space left
on your My Recordings List.
The DishPASS Timer may have
included more matching
programs than what you
expected.
Delete that DishPASS Timer and begin
again. See page 58.
You stop the operation of an event
timer for one showing of a program
that is repeated (such as a regularly
scheduled program), but the timer
operates for the next showing.
Stopping the event timer applies
only to the current showing of the
program.
To stop all operations of a repeated
event timer, you must delete the event
timer.
Note: The receiver deletes a Once
event timer when it operates.
You edit an automatic event timer.
The timer does not start or does not
end according to the program for
which you set the timer.
Editing an automatic event timer
converts it to a manual event
timer. Such a timer starts and
stops at the times you specify,
not the start and stop times of
any specific program.
If you want an automatic event timer to
start and stop according to a specific
program, avoid editing that event timer.
You try to set up a manual event
timer. The receiver displays an Error
message.
You may have tried to set a
manual event timer with invalid
start or stop times.
Review the information on manual
event timers on page 57.
The receiver does not display the
program name for a manual event
timer.
The receiver may not be able to
display a program name for a
manual event timer.
Use the Program Guide or a printed
schedule to find the program name.
The program may have started a
little earlier than scheduled, or it
may have run over its scheduled
ending time.
• Use the Start 1 min. early option to
start any event timer one minute
early, except for a Pay-Per-View
event.
• Use a manual event timer to start any
event timer at the times you set
yourself, except for a Pay-Per-View
event.
You set an event timer. The event
timer misses the beginning or the end
of a program.

Hearing A Program
What Is Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
The receiver front panel power light is
on and there is a good picture on the
TV set, but you do not hear any
sound.
• You may have muted the
sound, or set the volume so
low that you cannot hear it.
• The audio connections may
not be properly connected.
• You have selected Dolby
Digital Only when there is no
Dolby Digital soundtrack.
• Check the volume level on the TV or
audio device. Turn off the mute or
turn up the volume, as required.
• Check the audio connectors and
cables from the receiver to the TV or
the sound system.
• Check the TV speakers or the sound
system.
• In the Dolby Digital menu, select
Dolby Digital/PCM for the audio
output. If your decoder/amplifier will
not accept Linear PCM digital input,
use the analog connections instead.
You hear a foreign language with a
program.
You may have set the receiver to
select an alternate audio
language. The program may be
in a foreign language.
Press the MENU button on your remote.
From the Main Menu, select
Preferences, then Alternate Audio,
and choose the language that you
prefer.
Possible Reason
What to Do
• You do not have Caller ID
service from your local phone
company.
• Your phone line is not
connected to the phone jack
on the back of the receiver.
• You do not have the Caller ID
option enabled.
• Verify that Caller ID is a service
provided by your local phone
company.
• Verify that you have connected the
phone line to the phone jack on the
back of the receiver.
• Press the Menu button on your
remote. From the Main Menu, select
System Setup, then Installation,
and then Caller ID. Select the Enable
Caller ID option.
Caller ID
What Is Happening
Caller ID is not working.
Telephone for Voice/Data/FAX
What Is Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
While you are making a telephone
call, you hear “clicks.”
The receiver may have tried to
send Pay-Per-View purchase
information to DISH Network
using your phone line. When the
receiver found that the telephone
was busy, it automatically
disconnected.
You do not have to do anything. You
can always use your telephone line,
because the receiver automatically
hangs up if it finds the line is busy.
You pick up the telephone to make a
call, but you do not hear a dial tone.
The receiver was sending PayPer-View purchase information
to DISH Network using your
phone line. 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.

What Is Happening
Possible Reason
Your computer or fax machine tries to
send a fax or modem transmission,
but fails.
The receiver was sending PayPer-View purchase information
to DISH Network using your
phone line. When the receiver
found that the telephone was
busy, it automatically
disconnected. The fax or modem
found that there was no dial tone,
and cancelled the transmission.
Re-send the FAX or modem
transmission.
Your computer or fax machine was
receiving a fax or modem
transmission, but an error occurred.
The receiver may have tried to
send Pay-Per-View purchase
information to DISH Network
using your phone line during the
fax or modem call. When the
receiver found that the telephone
was busy, it automatically
disconnected. This generated
“clicks” that caused an error in
the FAX or modem transmission.
Have the sender resend the FAX or
modem transmission.

Locks
What Is Happening
You set a lock (for example, a lock on
programs by ratings), but the lock
does not take effect.
You forgot the password, so that you
are unable to unlock the receiver.
Possible Reason
What to Do
You may not have locked the
receiver.
You must lock the receiver to apply any
lock that you have set.
N/A
Call the Customer Service Center at 1800-333-DISH (3474). You must be
able to verify your account information
with the customer service
representative.
Ordering a Pay-Per-View Program
What Is Happening
Possible Reason
What to Do
Someone orders a Pay-Per-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-Per-View program.
The receiver may not be
connected to an active
telephone line or broadband
Internet connection.
Connect each receiver to a phone line
or a broadband Internet connection for
Pay-Per-View ordering using the
remote control.
You find that you are not able to
cancel a Pay-Per-View program.
You ordered a Pay-Per-View
program, and then decided not
to watch it.
You cannot cancel an order for a PayPer-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 on all
of the receivers.
You ordered a Pay-Per-View
program, and want it to be
available on all the receivers in
your setup.
If you want to watch a Pay-Per-View
program on TVs connected on each
receiver, you must order the program for
each receiver but you only pay for the
program once.
Possible Reason
What to Do
You may have not done anything
with the remote control or front
panel buttons for several
minutes.
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.
Menus
What Is Happening
You were using a menu, and it

Limited Warranty
LIMITED WARRANTY
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 e-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

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

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.
DISH Network’s Exchange Programs
DISH Network offers two options if you need to replace your satellite receiver equipment or its accessories.
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.
If the defective equipment is covered under this warranty, a replacement will be shipped back to you at no additional
cost (additional charges may apply outside the continental US).
If your equipment is not covered under 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 DISH
Network 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.

OR REPLACED TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND THEY WILL BE LEGALLY BINDING ON YOU.
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. Changing Your Programming Selection. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement or the customer
agreement(s), if any, applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment,
you may change your programming selection at any time by notifying us. A fee may apply to such changes
("Transaction Fee"). In addition (and without limitation), you may be charged a monthly fee ("Service Access Fee") if
you fail to subscribe to one of the following DISH Network basic programming packages: America's Top 60,
America's Top 120, America's Top 180, Great Wall TV Package, DISH Latino, DISH Latino Dos DISH Latino Max,
America's "Everything" Pak, Latino "Everything" Pak, or any of their successor packages. Some Services are only
available if you purchase and maintain a minimum level of programming.
C. Programming Availability. Certain Services transmitted by us, including but not limited to some subscription
Services, sporting events and broadcast network Services, may be blacked out in your area of reception. If you
circumvent or attempt to circumvent any of these blackouts, you may be subject to legal action. You must be at least
18 years of age, or the applicable age of majority where you reside, in order to receive adult-oriented programming
services.
D. Ordering Pay-Per-View. You may order DISH Network special events and pay-per-view Services by using your
on-screen Program Guide and remote control unit to select the movies and other events we offer. To receive the full
functionality of DISH Network pay-per-view Services, your DISH Network receiver must be connected to a landbased telephone line. You may also order DISH Network special events and pay-per-view Services by calling the
following toll free number: 1-877-DISH-PPV (3474-778) and using our automated system or speaking with a live
operator at one of our Customer Service Centers. A fee will apply for using our automated system ("Pay-Per-View
Automated Fee") or calling one of our Customer Service Centers ("Pay-Per-View Live Operator Fee").
E. Private Home Viewing Only. DISH Network provides Services to you solely for your private home viewing, use
and enjoyment. You agree that no Services provided to you will be viewed in areas open to the public or in
commercial establishments. Services may not be rebroadcast, nor performed, nor may admission be charged for
listening to or viewing any Services. If we later determine that you utilized your Equipment (or sold, leased or
otherwise gave possession of such equipment to a third party who you knew or reasonably should have known
intended to use it) to permit the viewing of Services in a commercial establishment or any other area open to the
public, we may disconnect your Services and in addition to all other applicable fees, you agree to pay us the
difference between the price actually paid for Services and the full commercial rate for such Services, regardless of
whether we have or had the rights to distribute such Services in a commercial establishment.
118
Appendix
Residential Customer Agreement
F. Additional Tuners and Receivers. We may allow you to place additional receivers on your account in our sole
discretion. Each additional receiver will be authorized to receive the same Services as your initial receiver. This
option is only available if your initial DISH Network receiver and all additional receiver(s) are located at the same
residence and are continuously connected to your same land-based telephone line. Unless otherwise specified in
the customer agreement(s), if any, applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/
or Equipment, DISH Network will charge you a monthly additional outlet programming access fee ("Additional Outlet
Programming Access Fee") for each tuner activated on your account beyond the first. If you desire to receive
Services at two different residential locations, you must open a separate account for each location. You agree that
you will not directly or indirectly use a single account for the purpose of authorizing Services for multiple DISH
Network receivers that are not all located in the same residence and connected to your same land-based telephone
line. If we later determine that you did, we may disconnect your Services and, in addition to all other applicable fees,
you agree to pay us the difference between the amounts actually received by us and the full retail price for the
Services authorized for each DISH Network receiver on your account.
G. Changes in Services Offered. We reserve the right to add, delete, rearrange and/or change any and all
programming, programming packages and other Services that we offer, and our prices and fees related to such
programming, programming packages and Services at any time, including without limitation during any term
agreement period to which you have agreed under the terms and conditions of any other agreement with DISH
Network. If a change affects you, we will provide you notice of such change and its effective date. In the event that
we delete, rearrange or change any programming, programming packages or other Services, you understand and
agree that we have no obligation to replace or supplement any programming, programming packages or other
Services previously offered that have been deleted, rearranged or otherwise changed. You further understand and
agree that you will not be entitled to any refund because of a deletion, rearrangement or change in the contents of
any programming, programming packages, or other Services previously offered.
H. Multi-Month Subscriptions. For multi-month subscriptions, you may downgrade your Services only at your time of
renewal. You may not downgrade your Services during the term of a multi-month subscription.
2.
BILLING POLICIES AND PAYMENTS FOR SERVICES
A. You agree to pay all amounts billed for Services and to pay all taxes, fees and other charges, if any, which are
now or may in the future be assessed in connection with any Services you receive from us. Unless you prepay for a
multi-month subscription to Services, we will bill you each month, in advance, for most Services and in arrears for
other Services such as pay-per-view ordered by you or anyone who uses your Equipment, whether with or without
your permission, until you cancel your Services. Bills you receive will show the total amount due, the payment due
date, payments, credits, purchases and certain other charges to your account.
B. You agree to pay us in full monthly by the payment due date indicated on your bill for your Services and for any
other charges due and owing to us, including without limitation any fees named in this Section 2. If you do not pay
your bill in full on or before its due date, you agree to pay an administrative fee for late payment ("Late Payment
Fee") as described below. Other fees and charges may also be assessed, including without limitation a returned
payment fee ("Returned Payment Fee") in the event such non-payment arises from non-sufficient funds. If you
request a duplicate billing statement, you will be assessed an additional fee (also referred to as a "Transaction
Fee"). You may submit your payment by mail, on our website, through our autopay program, by calling a DISH
Network customer service representative or by any other means we may designate. If payment is made by calling
a DISH Network customer service representative, a fee will be assessed ("Live Operator Payment Fee") as
described below. If partial payments are made, they will be applied first to the oldest outstanding bill. We do not
assume the risk of undelivered mail. If you send checks or money orders marked with a designation such as
"payment in full," we can accept them without waiving any of our rights, including without limitation our rights to
collect any other amounts owed by you, notwithstanding your characterization of such payment. DISH Network
does not extend credit to our customers, and the Late Payment Fee is not interest, a credit service charge or a
finance charge. You understand and agree that in the case of late payment or nonpayment for any Services ordered
by you or for any of the charges stated below, we may report such late payment or nonpayment to credit reporting
agencies. If you do not pay your bill in full by its due date, or if you at any time otherwise fail, neglect or refuse to
make timely payment for your Services, we have the right to disconnect your Services at any time thereafter, in our
sole discretion, and in such event we shall be wholly relieved from any and all of our duties and obligations under
this Agreement. If your Services are disconnected for non-payment or for any other reason, DISH Network may
require you to pay, and you agree to pay, all past due charges, a fee for reconnection ("Restart Fee"), a deposit
equal to a minimum of two month's service charges and all outstanding balances accrued through the date of such
disconnection, before we reconnect your Services. Unless required by applicable law, deposits will not be held
segregated from other funds and shall not earn or accrue interest. Promotional pricing is valid only at time of
installation. Additional charges may apply for you to upgrade your Services or Equipment after installation or for
non-standard installations.
C. If you paid for an annual or other multi-month subscription to any Services and your account is past due for any
amount owed to us, at our option we may suspend any or all Services until we receive payment in full of all past due
amounts, and/or convert your annual or other multi-month subscription to a monthly subscription. If we convert your
multi-month subscription to a monthly subscription, we will first apply the amount you paid for your multi-month
subscription to any past due amounts and then any remaining amounts to any obligations you incur in the future.
D. If we use a collection agency or attorney to collect any money you owe us or to assert any other right which we
may have against you, you agree to pay the reasonable costs of collection or other action. These costs might
include, but are not limited to, the costs of a collection agency, reasonable attorney's fees and court costs. If there
are billing errors or other requests for credit, you may contact our Customer Service Center by telephone or in
writing. You must contact us within twenty (20) days after the date you receive the billing statement for which you
are seeking corrections. Failure to timely notify us of a dispute shall constitute your acceptance of the corresponding
bill. Undisputed portions of a billing statement must be paid before the next billing statement is issued or you agree
to pay an administrative fee for late payment. All payments for Services must be made directly by you to us. For

example, DISH Network shall have no obligation to provide Services for which payment is made by you to a third
party or payment is made by a third party on your behalf.
E. In addition to (and without limitation of) any amounts due for your Services and any other amounts due pursuant
to any customer agreement(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment, you agree to pay the
fees referenced below ("Fees") if and when applicable. DISH Network reserves the right to change these Fees,
increase these Fees or add additional Fees at any time and from time to time, in our sole discretion upon notice to
you.

CANCELLATION OF SERVICE
A. Your Services will continue until cancelled or disconnected as provided herein. Unless previously disconnected,
your subscription will be automatically renewed unless and until you contact us to cancel it as provided in the next
paragraph.
B. You have the right to cancel your Services for any reason and at any time by notifying us via telephone, via e-mail
or in writing, at the phone number, e-mail address or mailing address set forth in the first paragraph of this
Agreement. Please be aware that certain promotions have an optional or mandatory term agreement period and if
you cancel your Services prior to the expiration of that optional or mandatory term agreement period, certain early
termination or cancellation fees may apply.
C. In addition to all other rights that DISH Network may have to disconnect your Services, DISH Network has the
right to disconnect your Services at any time without providing notice to you if: (i) you fail to pay any bill in full when
it is due; (ii) we receive confirmation that you have received Services, or any part of the Services, without paying for
them; (iii) you otherwise violate the terms and conditions of this Agreement or any customer agreement(s)
applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment; (iv) you transfer,
encumber or relocate any leased Equipment (unless you relocate such equipment as part of a residential move into
an area within which you can permissibly continue to receive such Services); (v) you assign or attempt to assign any
of your rights, duties or obligations under the terms and conditions of this Agreement or any customer agreement(s)
applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment; (vi) you are
receiving Services through a third-party billing agent and become ineligible to receive applicable services provided
by such third-party billing agent; or (vii) any act of bankruptcy on your part or the commencement of bankruptcy
proceedings against you.
D. If your Services are canceled or disconnected for any reason, you are still responsible for the payment of all
outstanding balances accrued, including without limitation any applicable Fees.
E. You understand that, except in certain limited circumstances, charges for Services, once charged to your
account, are nonrefundable and no refunds or credits will be provided in connection with the cancellation of
subscriptions to Services. If you received a discounted price in exchange for your agreement to pay for your
Services on a multi-month basis, and you cancel your Services prior to the expiration of your multi-month
subscription, you understand and agree that you are not entitled to any refund or credit for the unused portions of
your multi-month subscription.
4.
EQUIPMENT
A. In order to receive Services it will be necessary for you to purchase or lease certain reception equipment
consisting primarily of a DISH Network compatible satellite receiver(s), satellite antenna(s), low noise block
converter(s) with integrated feed(s) and remote control(s) (collectively, "Equipment"). Receiver(s) provided to you
may also be equipped with a conditional access card ("Smart Card") inserted into a slot in such receiver. Not all
receivers with a Smart Card slot require Smart Cards for proper authorization. Smart Cards remain the property of
DISH Network at all times and any tampering or other unauthorized modification to any Smart Card is strictly
prohibited and may result in, and subject you to, legal action. You agree to return Smart Cards to us upon our
request.
B. Smart Cards are non-transferable. Your Smart Card will only work in the DISH Network receiver to which it was
assigned by DISH Network. If you report to our Customer Service Center that your Smart Card was lost, damaged,
defective or stolen, then we will replace it, as long as there is no evidence of unauthorized tampering or
modification. A replacement fee will apply ("Smart Card Replacement Fee"). In addition, in order to minimize
downtime for your Equipment, DISH Network will, upon your request, deliver a replacement Smart Card to you via
overnight delivery in which event our overnight delivery fee ("Overnight Delivery Fee") will apply.

C. DISH Network reserves the rights to alter software, features and/or functionality in your DISH Network receivers,
provide data and content to Personal Video Recorder/Digital Video Recorder ("PVR/DVR") products, store data and
content on the hard drives of PVR/DVR products, and send electronic counter-measures to your DISH Network
receivers, through periodic downloads. DISH Network will use commercially reasonable efforts to schedule these
downloads to minimize interference with or interruption to your Services, but shall have no liability to you for any
interruptions in Services arising out of or related to such downloads.
D. DISH Network's PVR/DVR Products allow you to record programming in digital format. Total recording time
varies depending on your receiver and the nature of the programs being recorded. DISH Network does not
guarantee access to or recording of any particular programming. Most programming is the copyrighted material of
the third party that supplies it, is protected by copyright and other applicable laws, and may not be reproduced,
published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the written permission of the third party that supplied it
except as permitted by the "fair use" provisions of the U.S. copyright laws. DISH Network may, in its sole discretion,
add, change or remove features of its PVR/DVR Products and, upon notice to you, introduce or change fees for the
use of PVR/DVR Product features. DISH Network will notify you of any change that is within its reasonable control.
Unless otherwise specified in the terms and conditions of the customer agreement(s) applicable to the promotion(s)
pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment, we will charge you a monthly DISH Network DVR
service fee ("DISH Network DVR Service Fee") for each PVR/DVR receiver activated on your account.
E. DISH Network receivers contain components and software that are proprietary to DISH Network. You agree that
you will not try to reverse-engineer, decompile or disassemble any software or hardware contained within any
receiver or Smart Card. Such actions are strictly prohibited and may result in the termination of this Agreement,
disconnection of your Services and/or legal action.
F. To optimize the operation of your Equipment, you must continuously connect each DISH Network receiver on
your account to your same land-based telephone line. Failure to connect each receiver to your same land-based
telephone line may result in interruption or disconnection of Services.
G. If your Equipment is stolen or otherwise removed from your premises without your authorization, you must notify
our Customer Service Center by telephone or in writing immediately, but in any event not more than three (3)
business days after such removal to avoid liability for payment for unauthorized use of your Equipment. You will not
be liable for unauthorized use that occurs after we have received your notification.
H. You are licensed to use the software provided in your DISH Network receiver(s), as updated by DISH Network
from time to time, solely in executable code form, solely in conjunction with lawful operation of the DISH Network
receiver(s) that you purchased or leased, and solely for the purposes permitted under this Agreement. You may not
copy, modify or transfer any software provided in your DISH Network receiver(s), or any copy thereof, in whole or in
part. You may not reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or translate such software, or otherwise attempt to
derive its source code, except to the extent allowed under any applicable laws. Any attempt to transfer any of the
rights, duties or obligations of this license agreement is null and void. You may not rent, lease, load, resell for profit
or distribute any software provided in your DISH Network receiver(s), or any part thereof. Such software is licensed,
not sold, to you for use only under the terms and conditions of this license agreement, and DISH Network and its
suppliers reserve all rights not expressly granted to you. Except as stated above, this license agreement does not
grant to you any intellectual property rights in the software provided in your DISH Network receiver(s). If you breach
any term or condition of this license agreement, this license agreement will automatically terminate.

terms and conditions of this Agreement. Unless otherwise specified in such customer agreement(s): (i) such
Equipment, except for the satellite antenna, shall at all times remain the sole and exclusive property of DISH
Network and we will have the right, in our sole discretion, to provide or replace leased Equipment with new or
reconditioned Equipment and to remove, or require the return of, such Equipment upon cancellation or
disconnection of your Services for any reason and (ii) we will charge you a monthly equipment rental fee (an
"Equipment Rental Fee") for each leased receiver activated on your account. No leased Equipment provided to you
by DISH Network shall be deemed fixtures or part of your realty. Our ownership of such Equipment may be
displayed by notice contained on it. You shall have no right to pledge, sell, mortgage, otherwise encumber, give
away, remove, relocate, alter or tamper with such Equipment (or any notice of our ownership thereon) at any time.
Any reinstallation, return, or change in the location of such Equipment shall be performed by us at our service rates
in effect at the time of such service. You shall not attach any electrical or other devices to, or otherwise alter, any
such Equipment without our prior written consent. We reserve the right to make such filings as may be determined
to be necessary by us in our sole discretion to evidence our ownership rights in such Equipment, and you agree to
execute any and all documents as may be so determined to be necessary for us to make such filings. You are
responsible for preventing the loss or destruction of leased Equipment and we recommend that such Equipment be
covered by your homeowners, renters or other insurance policy.
B. Upon termination of your Services, you must notify our Customer Service Center or call the telephone number
set forth in the customer agreement(s) applicable to the lease promotion(s) pursuant to which you are leasing the
applicable Equipment to schedule the return of your leased Equipment. If such Equipment is not returned
undamaged and in working order, normal wear and tear excepted, certain charges will apply as described in the
customer agreement(s) applicable to the lease promotion(s) pursuant to which you are leasing such Equipment.
You are responsible for, and agree to pay, any costs of repair, replacement or other costs if you do not return such
Equipment undamaged and in working order, normal wear and tear excepted.
C. You shall notify us promptly of any defect in, damage to, or accident involving your leased Equipment. All
maintenance and repair of such Equipment shall be performed by us or our designee(s). DISH Network may charge
you for any repairs that are necessitated by any damage to, or misuse of, such Equipment.

outstanding balance.

WARNING AGAINST PIRACY AND INFRINGEMENT
A. It is a violation of various U.S. federal and state laws to receive any Services, or any portion of such Services,
without paying for them. The penalties for violating such laws can include imprisonment and civil damage awards of
up to $110,000 per violation.
B. Title 47, Section 605(e)4, United States Code (U.S.C.) makes it a federal crime to modify Equipment to receive
encrypted (scrambled) television programming without payment of required subscriptions. Conviction can result in a
fine of up to $500,000 and imprisonment for five years, or both. Any person who procures Equipment that has been
so modified is an accessory to that offense and may be punishable in the same manner. Investigative authority for
violations lies with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Equipment may incorporate copyright protection technology
that is protected by U.S. patents and other intellectual property rights. Use of such copyright protection technology
must be authorized by Macrovision, and is intended for home and other limited pay-per-view uses only unless
otherwise authorized by Macrovision. Reverse engineering or disassembly is prohibited.
9.
GENERAL
A. Physical Address/Change of Address. When setting up your DISH Network account, you agree to provide us with
the physical street address where your Equipment will be located and your Services will be provided. A post office
box does not constitute a physical address and is not sufficient to meet this requirement. You agree to give us
prompt notice of your change of name, mailing address, physical address where your Equipment is located, and
telephone number. You may do this by notifying our Customer Service Center by telephone or in writing at the
phone number or mailing or e-mail address set forth in the first paragraph of this Agreement.
B. Notice. Any notice required or permitted to be given by us under this Agreement may be provided via the mail, on
your billing statement, as a bill insert, via broadcast on a television channel, through publication on the website set
forth in the first paragraph of this Agreement, by telephone or by any other reasonable means. If we send you notice
by mail, on your billing statement or as a bill insert, it will be considered given when deposited in the U.S. Mail,
addressed to you at your then-current billing address in our records. If we send you notice via broadcast on a
television channel or through publication on the website set forth in the first paragraph of this Agreement, it will be
considered given when first broadcast or published. If we send you notice by telephone, it will be considered given
when personally delivered to you or when left as a message at your then-current phone number in our records.
Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, any notice required or permitted to be given by you under this
Agreement shall be in writing and shall be sent by first class mail addressed to us at the mailing address set forth in
the first paragraph of this Agreement, and shall be deemed given when received by us at such mailing address.

Appendix
Staying Legal
C. Credit Checks. You authorize DISH Network to investigate your financial responsibility and creditworthiness,
including without limitation acquiring credit reports and histories, and to report any payment defaults to credit
reporting agencies. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, you have the right to notify DISH Network if you believe we
have reported inaccurate information about your account to any consumer reporting agency. Please include the
specific item of dispute and why you believe the information reported is in error in any such notice.
D. Personal Information. If you have an on-line account with us, you are fully responsible for maintaining the
confidentiality of your password and account username and for all activities that occur under your password and/or
account username. You agree to: (i) keep your account username and password confidential and not share them
with anyone else, and (ii) immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password and/or account username
or other breach of security.
E. Applicable Law. This Agreement, including without limitation all matters relating to its validity, construction,
performance and enforcement, and any claim, complaint or dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement or
Services, shall be governed by the laws and regulations of the State of Colorado without giving effect to its conflict of
law provisions. These terms and conditions are subject to amendment, modification or termination if required by
such laws or regulations. If any provision in this Agreement is declared to be illegal or in conflict with any law or
regulation, that provision shall be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make such provision legal and no
longer in conflict with such law or regulation, without affecting the validity of any other provisions.
F. Third-Party Billing Agents. We may enter into relationships with third parties to provide billing and other services
on our behalf, in which case the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall apply to such third parties as
applicable under the circumstances. Additional terms and conditions imposed by our third-party billing agents,
including without limitation, local telephone companies, may apply. For example (and without limitation), late fees
imposed by our third-party billing agents may be administered according to our third-party billing agent's billing
procedures and applicable state tariffs and regulations; our third-party billing agents may require you to pay all past
due charges for Services, a restart Fee, and/or a prepayment before we reconnect your Services; other services
provided by our third-party billing agents, including without limitation, local telephone service, may need to be
restored before DISH Network Services can be restored, and a restore fee and deposit may be required to restore
third-party billing agent services. Partial payments on third-party billing agent bills may be applied to the balance
due for other services billed on your third-party billing agent bill, including without limitation, local telephone service,
according to the third-party billing agent's billing procedures and applicable state statutes and regulations. Contact
your third-party billing agent for details. Failure to pay all or any part of your third-party billing agent bill may result in
disconnection of Services.
G. Remedies Cumulative. It is agreed that the rights and remedies provided under the terms and conditions of this
Agreement to DISH Network in case of default or breach by you of this Agreement are cumulative and without
prejudice to any other rights and remedies that DISH Network may have by reason of such default or breach by you
at law, in equity, under contract or otherwise (all of which are expressly reserved).
H. Other. No salesperson, installer, customer service representative, authorized retailer, or other similarly situated
individual is authorized to change the terms and conditions of this Agreement. DISH Network may, however, change
the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time and from time to time in its sole discretion and will notify you
if that occurs. The terms and conditions of this Agreement that either are expressly stated to survive or by their
nature would logically be expected to survive its expiration or termination shall continue thereafter until fully
performed. This Agreement is in addition to any other written agreement(s), if any, between you and DISH Network,
including without limitation any installation agreement or customer agreement(s), if any, applicable to the
promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment, and except as provided to the
contrary herein all such written agreements shall remain in full force and effect. Except as expressly set forth in this
Agreement to the contrary, any and all prior DISH Network Residential Customer Agreements are hereby replaced
and superseded in their entirety by this Agreement, and such prior DISH Network Residential Customer
Agreements shall be of no further force or effect whatsoever. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between
the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any customer agreement(s) applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant
to which you are receiving Services and/or Equipment, the terms and conditions of such customer agreement(s)
shall be controlling. In the event of any ambiguity between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any
customer agreement(s) applicable to the promotion(s) pursuant to which you are receiving Services and/or
Equipment, DISH Network shall have the sole and exclusive authority to interpret and/or make a final determination
in its sole discretion concerning any issue arising from such ambiguity.

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.
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,
such as RJ-11. See installation instructions for details.
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.
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. But if advance notice isn't 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 necessary modifications to maintain uninterrupted service.
If trouble is experienced with this equipment, for repair or warranty information, please contact DISH Network at 1800-333-DISH (3474). If the equipment is causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone company may
request that you disconnect the equipment until the problem is resolved.
There are no user serviceable parts inside.
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.

Warning and Attention Symbols
You must be aware of safety when you install and use this system. This User Guide provides various procedures. If you do
some of these procedures carelessly, you could injure or kill yourself or damage equipment or property. Some other
procedures require special attention.
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to
the presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient
magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of
important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the
appliance.
For Your Safety
Do not try to open the case of the receiver. There is risk of electrical shock, which may cause damage to
the receiver and/or personal injury or death to you. There are no user-serviceable parts inside the
receiver. Opening the receiver case or making unauthorized changes will void the warranty.
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this appliance to rain or moisture.
Important Software Notice
As with all software controlled products, unexpected behavior could arise if the user tries to perform operations in a nonroutine manner. This product, like almost any other high tech product, is subject to bugs and hence EchoStar CANNOT
AND DOES NOT GUARANTEE OR WARRANT THAT ALL FEATURES, SUCH AS PARENTAL CONTROL, WILL WORK
AS INTENDED UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTANCES. EchoStar endeavors to improve such conditions and will periodically
download improvements.
