    I finally got around to creating my favorites Favorites (Favorites, Movies, Sports, News) and discovered that my 2 Joeys don't show these, only the default ones.

    I found an old thread that copying from one to another was not possible, but is it now?

    And if not, why not, as this seems that it should be easy? We can view the status on all sets and join them, we can pause and resume in another room, but do I have to actually re-enter all my custom Favorites from each Joey?

    it's no big deal to do that ... any customer would have own unique Fav lists, so the copy has no value for masses

    Actually that's my point. As a family (of two in the house) there's a set of Favorites in those categories that need to be accessed from any of the three sets. So I have to set up identical lists on the two Joeys, since I originally set them up on the Hopper. I just want the Hopper Favorites to also (or a choice) be on the Joeys.

    Actually surprised at that. Sounds like no hope, so I'd better get my spreadsheet out in front of the two Joeys :bowdown:

    And of course, whenever DISH changes part of the lineup, it's back to the sets...

    I would like that feature as well, it would be a lot easier to make a list once then copy it to the Joeys than it is to set them up individually. Especially with them loosing channels off the favorites list all the time!

    You'd "think" it would be easy... but I think Joeys have a mind of their own. I lose 1 local channel in my favorites at least once a month, and moves around from Hopper to Joey (a "common" favorites list would be nice). Also DVR movies that I can watch on my Hopper, sometimes say "not subscribed" when trying to watch on a Joey (even though all DVR movies is on the Hopper)... but I can log in with my Nexus 7 and watch them all.

    Are those "not authorized" movies stored on an external drive?

    Not on ext drive, just on main Hopper. Only "MoMax" movies recorded during free preview. All other free preview channels work fine on all units.

    Couldn't you pair the Hopper remote to the joey and backup the joey from the remote?
