Word is that they will crack N3 when it comes to DishNetwork.

Couple of rules about FTA. It will go down for extended lengths of time. There are never guarentees.

And FTA types are very "chicken-little" . The sky is ALWAYS falling.

I've had it for 4ish years. It went down for 6 months once...but ever more than a week otherwise. It's up 90% of the time.

DishNetwork is supposed to convert to N3 in September and I'm pretty sure there's some nerdy guy somewhere cracking the code as we speak

I've been through 3 FTA's Satellites. They only last for like a year before they get cutoff and they are unusable. Now we have 3 different dishes behind our house with one legit dish on the front.

Satellite and FTA Forums - FTA Forum and Resources

Do some reading here. FTA is not for the faint hearted. It does go down occasionally. If you are going to fuss about the down times rather than enjoy the up times, I dont suggest it.

It went down at 6 pm last night but was back this morning. Last time it was down for 2 days.

Thanks for the site, i'll look into it...i haven't had any downtime yet *knocks on wood*, I have a viewsat receiver and I started using Dish keys instead of the files, it seems to work so far and the dish keys are always available the fastest.

I've got Viewsat Ultra V2 currently and it's been down for like 2 weeks. I'm currently receiving the signal from only 119W. However, 110W and 129W aren't working. I've got Dish 1000

And i have 110W, is 119 worth it, any good channels? I have one dish pointed at 61.5, used to be used for international channels but now that they don't work anymore i might change to 119.

5 star Max
Fox Soccer
Fox Movie Channel
4 x Pay-per-view on demand channels
Foxnet Channels
NBA TV
NBA League pass : Which doesn't work for some reason but you get all the games on Foxnet anyway.

Most PPV's are on 110 and same with most local channels.

I have a triple lmd dish. 110,119 and 61.

Costs about $100. Looks good and has a forth spot for Direct TV if it ever comes back.
