I bought a 4100 in November at my former residence. I have since moved, and connected my receiver to the pre-existing dish. The 4100 works fine... except I am missing channels. These missing channels don't even exist on my guide. I have about a 80 signal strength, although I am sure this has nothing to do with the missing channels. I have already attempted to re-set the receiver.
Channels you subscribe to will disappear or "expire" if you leave the dish disconnected from the receiver for an extended amount of time (days). Plug in the phone line and then visit channel 188 (the channel ordering page) and then select a channel package that you already subscribe to. If you do not subscribe to anything in the list then call up customer service and request to have the channels refreshed because you are missing channels after the receiver was unplugged for days while you moved.
Can anyone tell me what the 4100 is worth to buy outright? I just can not stand sitting on the phone with bev. I'm looking for a receiver to connect to my pc. This looks like a good fit due to it's small footprint. Having said that, is the digital audio issue widespread?
I believe that $99 is the standard price today at least. You might find one of the older receivers for less though. I purchased the receivers only (4100), not the 4120.
Dish network is an American Satellite company like Bell. Both Bell and Dish use Echostar receivers. They run different software though and, as far as I know, are not interchangeable. I'm certain Bell wouldn't activate a Dish branded receiver.
Just got a 4100 last weekend. After installing it we have noticed the unit is out of synch. The audio is about 15 frames to 1 seconds behind video. Checked our PVR and seem to have similar problems there as well. Asnyone had experience with sych problems? I spoke to BEV, they had me unplug and reset the units. Doesn't seem to work though.
Ya, but its happening on 3 boxes. Only one of them is new. Just called expressvu and they want me to check my signal to make sure its over 75%. I'l do that later tonight when i get home. They say the dish may have moved and they want $75 to come out and fix it. I say if the dish moved I would have no signal period and it was a bad install in the first place.
Using the bev 4100 with toshiba RD-XS34 dvd recorder
Hi, does anyone know what the best way is to use a Toshiba RD-XS 34 dvd recorder with a Bell expressvu 4100 receiver for recording. Is there an IR code that you can use for the dvd recorder to start the recording to work with the 4100? If anyone has any experience with these 2 systems please let me know. It's a real pain setting the both up for recordings. Thanks
