Upgraded To Dish Tru HD+

Finally after two years ,I reactivated my Dish TV connection and upgraded to Dish Tru HD.The upgradation was quick and hassle free.Placed upgrade request on 19th night.And they installed it on next day morning itself.I will share my experience and some snaps.Some images will be of poor quality since they are taken on mobile camera,sorry 🙁 When i get time i will give you a detailed review 🙂

[size=large][color=#FF1493]Price [/color][/size]

For upgrading I was charged Rs 990.I got one month Full On HD pack free for one month.

[size=large][color=#FF1493]Installation and Activation[/color][/size]

Total time taken was around 15 mins.They just replaced my normal LNB with Monobloc LNB.Then swapped my SD box with HD box.All channel in my pack were activated instantly.Had to call them later for activating DVR services.

[size=large][color=#FF1493]Box Contents[/color][/size]

Box contents include STB,Remote,2 Batteries,HDMI Cable,Component Cable,Composite Cable.

Settop Box is Zenega D6000 HD and is of decent quality.Ports include HDMI,Component,Composite,Spdif,USB,IF in ,IF out.Its displays time when on Stand By

[size=large][color=#FF1493]Remote[/color][/size]

Remote is too long for me.Found it difficult to use with one hand.

[size=large][color=#FF1493]Picture Quality [/color][/size]

I am not an expert ,but simply I can say the HD channels are of excellent quality.SD channel quality is above average.Its good on few channels.Its similar to what i get on my Digital cable with composite cable.

Well there is nothing to boast or complain in this area.I can say its not visually pleasing.

    there is one south pack free to all regional and extra regional pack costs 20rs. but in your case it is completely different accounts by dishtv

    You are right, for me there is no way to add superstar alacarte. They are telling full on HD pack is not activated in my account and for adding superstar alacarte you need to subscribe to any HD add on pack.

    I am already having full on HD free for 1 month and I am getting those channels. But they say it’s not activated. Argued with couple of them, later stopped fearing that they may even stop the 1 month free HD Addon.

    Also I downgraded my pack to Jumbo family from all sports. While downgrading they told I need to pay separately for the Malayalam language pack. I asked why, you were providing 1 language pack free with all South packs. They told now it’s like this only and if you want to watch Malayalam you should pay extra. I argued with them again for a long time. Later I told do whatever you want and cut the call. Now it seems they are charging Rs 20 for Malayalam alacarte for me.

    I am getting all the Malayalam channels except Matrubhumi and Surya Tv.
    May this 20rs is for those 2 channels? All the best for taking Dish TV HD.

    990 rs and you get free monoblock lnb worth 400 and recorder remote too costs 300+ 🙂
    [/quote]

    A hanging recorder 😀 Recorder remote now they are giving it free? For me they asked 250rs even though I had their HD stb 🙁

  9. may be try the local dealer who did the upgrade, may be they didnt update properly creating this issue

  10. Tried malayalam and english.No use 🙁

  11. the recent changes are too complex for their systems and the customer service agents to handle. you can try selecting different language to get a good agent, they are very rare though. try to speak very slowly like you speak to a kid or with underdeveloped brain

    since the new changes last week now we cant even login or send an email. earlier i only used to send emails and never had to talk these guys.

  12. You are right, for me there is no way to add superstar alacarte. They are telling full on HD pack is not activated in my account and for adding superstar alacarte you need to subscribe to any HD add on pack.

  13. congrats nivin, now is a good time to choose dish hd because of the maximum no of channels plus the package flexibility.and 990rs it is an easy decision

    only issue is their customer service, and their broken systems. Be aware you will lose the hd channels first during rains. I asked them if they have some solution for this like a bigger dish they have no idea just told me everybody face the same issue

    so it seems their systems are still not fixed, i wanted the familysports pack but they couldnt give it, so got the allsports+full on hd+alacarte. Now they say need one month wait to downgrade

    i got the hd superstar pack though, but never watched those even for 5minutes may be unsubscribe next month

  14. no anil, in his account strangely unable to find that Superstar HD addon option.. told him to contact CC..

  15. u can add 4 sun hd channels also for rs 20
