I don't have any way of recording a signal from the HD outputs of my Dish 6000, and I frequently set the timers to timeshift record some programs. My problem is with remembering to leave the receiver in the SD mode when I have it set to record! On more than once ocassion, I've returned home only to find that I'd recorded an hour of nothing because the receiver was still in HD mode! Could they add an HD/SD switch in the timer control, so the receiver can change to the correct mode when it the timer kicks in? I recall, when I first received the Dish 6000 receiver, it would automatically jump into SD mode. This seams to have gone away, when they released the v690 firmware. Does anyone have any suggestions? Want to join me in a writing campaign? Have any e-mail addresses that we can make this request to Dish?
