Does anyone know of a clever way of dimming the LED time/channel display on a DishTV SatBox Ultra S7090PVR?

Being very bright and lime green, it's an intrusion when watching anything with the lights off.

Obviously I could just use some tape to muffle the display, but I'm wondering if there is a dim setting?

Hi Mike

No, there is no dim setting for the external display. You could try and apply some filters to dim the panel, not sure where to get them though

OK, Black electrical tape it shall be.

DishTV: Hint for future models. Its a decoder, not a navigation light.  How about a gentle amber/red (or a dim mode).

I put 6 layers of masking tape over mine. Can still see them fine but are now muted and not like navigation lights. Same problem on computers but there I can disconnect them. Tape looks ugly as but works. I dont know why they have to make them with such bright lights

Perfect for your purpose. LIGHT DIMS from Rappallo AV in Auckland.

They are excellent and they have various shapes and sizes plus a customizable sheet.

Thanks, these look good - classier than tape!  I'll order some.  Rapallo are a good outfit, I got a good deal on some nice speaker plugs through them a few months ago.
