If your receiver hasn’t been used in a couple of weeks, it may have missed the latest software update. Before you hit the road, let’s make sure your equipment is up to date by following these three easy steps:
- Connect your DISH Outdoors receiver to your TV and portable dish while at home
- Ensure you are getting satellite signal
- Leave your receiver plugged into a power outlet and turn it off overnight.
Updates will be sent to your receiver overnight, so you’ll be ready to hit the road by morning.
