    Are there any DIRT members that work on Fridays? I sent a PM to RaymondC yesterday, but didn't get a response. Thanks.

    Just curious - What is the function of the "Dirt Team"? Sounds like something I could use.

    Dish Internet Response Team (DIRT) are Dish employees, pretty much like csr's and can take care of your account issues, upgrades or check recent activity. A lot like csr's but with more knowledge and authority to get things done. Very useful indeed.

    My wife and I are debating switching from Dish to either Directv or cable as we are out of contract. Only thing we are considering staying with Dish for Is Hopper 2 with built in sling. We do qualify for an upgrade but would like some additional savings if we are going to go under contract for another 2 years. Would like to discuss.

    Hi, you can send me a PM with your account or phone number and the four digit security code on your account. I would like to assist you with staying with DISH but for your benefit and for other posters, DIRT does not have the ability to discount the new Slingloaded Hopper. I would be happy to see what offers I can make but this is not an option we have. Thank you!

    I have a 5 Dual tuner DVR setup, 3 HDDVR and 2 dual DVR, set up to 10 TV's. So I currently can record everywhere but not HD everywhere. Lots of kids so between recording and watching we push the limit all the time. Two Hoppers just won't cut it even with PrimeTime. I have seen the technical setup for three Hopper, but Dish will only "allow" 2 Hoppers (and a bunch of Joeys) with their upgrade program. Can I purchase another Hopper and will Dish allow it to be activated?

    Went through the same process years ago and that's how we have 5 dual DVR's.

    You can add a purchased Hopper to your account.

    He was talking about 3 Hoppers. I was meaning that if they gave him two leased Hoppers that yes, he could purchase the third and add it. Not mixing VIP/hopper.

    Run a jumper between solo node client to duo node client and they should all see each other. Idk if that's approved by Dish or not but that's how people have been doing it and yes, you would need a switch as well to feed both nodes with sat signal.

    I was wanting to upgrade to the new hopper with the slingbox built in.
    I see new customers are getting free dvr and joeys. I know this is not available to me a customer of 18 years. But What would be available to me.
    My other family members have switched to the other company.
    Looking at a hopper and two joeys.
