I just acquired a Wally receiver and a Tailgater dish. The issue I an inquiring about is the fact that the Wally resets every 24 hours. After the reset, it takes about 5 minutes to reload the guide and then another 5 minutes to finish reloading the extended guide. Is there any way around this frustrating process?

When we were using the Tailgater and Wally I don't remember ours doing that.

Dish is usually very helpful on the phone. That's part of what we pay for. KEN

There isn't a way to turn it off. You can reset the time it reboots in the Wally settings. Reset the time for when you are asleep or in the middle of the day when you will likely not be watching. As long as the Wally is powered and able to see the Sat's it will reboot and be completed the next time you turn on the TV. I don't know how loud a Tailgater is but with my Playmaker it is so loud when it reboots I set it for daytime to keep from disturbing the neighbors sleep. Hope this helps.

If you 800-333-3474 and tell them you want to change that, they will walk you threw it... I did it on all 3 of mine, but do not remember where I went into ...

Like stated above, mine are set to update at 2AM or 3AM ....

The Wally is a p.i.t.a compared to the 211z. Setup time every time the lights flicker is just rediculous. It should be programmed and have a internal battery or capicator to recall and try the last antenna position before it goes through the entire setup process again. We have a factory mounted tailgater on our roof and when the receiver goes into sleep motor the tailgater just runs and runs looking for a signal. I hope Dish replaces the Wally with something better soon.

I take it that the 211Z does not do this nonsense. Does the 211Z work with a tailgater?

The 211Z does the exact same update routine as the Wally. ALL DISH receivers do an update routine once every 24 hours. It cannot be overridden only the time it does it can be changed.
