i was afraid i was unclear. ill try to clear some things up in steps.
1: i already have satellite service (dish network)
2: i cannot pay anymore than i currently am
3: i am looking to link my dish service to an online account (dish.com)
4: i do not know if there are any fees or overall price changes that can happen if i create a dish online account, and i NEED to know that before i do it.
5: what i meant by 522 is that that is the model of DVR that i am using.
hopefully that cleared things up?
Yeah, the "522" is your DVR/Receiver - Seems to be quite common in the States so you should be able find support for it easily if you have to adjust it yourself when hooking up to Dish Online.
As for Dish Online's service - I don't believe we have anything similar to that here so I couldn't comment on whether or not there would be an extra service charge for the capability of sharing your TV access with other wireless devices.
Here, in Zealand, we have SKY for the rich people and Freeview for the poor. The only prereq for poor people is that they can afford the DVR/Receiver (which ever brand they choose). At first I was a bit disgruntled but giving it more thought it's been long over due that these old aerials are removed from existence - Far too many electromagnetic wires nowadays.
