    We have DISH service via a 722k. I really haven't paid much attention in the past to sending recordings to an iPad Mini or a Nexus 7. Where to I start to find out how to do this? We may be going on vacation in a couple of months and having the content loaded on a tablet might be handy for the plane trip.

    I believe that functionality is only available on the Hopper with Sling.

    That is is correct. You need the HWS.

    Winters,...
    Does it actually get loaded onto the iPad?

    The Hopper with Sling can actually copy programs to your iPad for viewing at a later time.

    I believe the recordings stay on the tablet indefinitely until deleted, however from what I have read the device must connect to the HWS at least once a month for the recordings to remain viewable. Hoping to start doing transfers to my wife's new Nook HD.

    Thank you for the replies. I was hoping that they might add Android devices via 722k, but it looks like that is not an option. Thanks again!

    Although cumbersome, if you have a DVD recorder, you can record anything on any Dish DVR to a DVD, and then use various different programs (such as the free Mac program, Handbrake) to convert the DVD to a format that can then be copied to a iPad, through iTunes. There should be an easier way, but I have done this in the past and it does work

    Does this work consistently for Android yet? They withdrew it from the Dish Anywhere App a little while ago. Then when it reappeared in the App I tried it and it didn't work for me. I called Tech Support and they said that it still was not supposed to work.
    I just tried it now and it doesn't work. Any news?

    [SIZE=medium]The Transfers app through DISH Anywhere is working and I was able to transfer a movie to my Galaxy SIII. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Have you uninstalled the app and re-installed it? Try to transfer another movie to see if the issue persists.[/SIZE]
