Will a Dish receiver work with a VCR?

For example, if I want to tape channel 30 at 8 p.m., channel 40 at 9 p.m., and channel 50 at 10 p.m.....

.....can the Dish receiver box be programmed to automatically change to those channels at 8, 9, and 10 pm, and feed them to the VCR?

Yes, highlight the program and set the Auto Tune on the type. you can either set the IR Blaster to active the record on your vcr (it must be turned on or you can set a timer on your vcr making sure it is set to the proper channel or input.

Is it true I can get Locals-only service for just $6 a month?

Yes, but if that is all you subscribe to, Dish addes other fees.

Yeah I just found out. They said $9.99 would be my monthly bill due to an extra access fee.

Can I buy the Dish/receiver separately without a monthly subscription?
