    I have a hopper and a sling adapter, and can watch Live TV and recorded shows via my laptop as well as my iphone (using the Dish Remote Access app). Everything works really very well.

    However, on my Samsung Galaxy Android tablet I can ONLY access my guide and watch live TV. The picture quality is great, but there is no DVR button to access my recordings. It is driving me crazy. All I see is the Live TV button in the upper left corner, the Guide button with drop down menu in the middle and the HD on/off button in the upper right hand corner. Thats it. No DVR button... HELP...!?!?!?

    There won't be a "DVR" button to press while watching live TV, but (this is on my RAZR) if you press the settings/menu button, there is a "My DVR" section where you can pick recordings

    There is no Settings or Menu button. I swear I have tried everything... All i see is the Live TV button in the upper left hand corner, the Guide button in the center up top, and the HD on/off button in the upper right hand corner. Nothing else...

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you are trying to do. The only way you can access your recordings is if you go to the "My DVR" section of DRA.

    You are not able to bring up the menus or anything when using a sling adapter

    That's exactly my point...there is no "My DVR" button on my Samsung Galaxy. I can only watch Live TV.
    I also have an iphone and there the DRA software shows a "My DVR" button.... It has to do with the Android DRA software.

    For anyone else that may be having this problem, you have to press the menu/settings button on your android phone to get the option to select "My DVR". The menu/settings button is the one on the phone itself that has 3 horizontal lines.

    Good day Matt,

    I'm up against a wall here with much the same issue using "Dish Online DVR Recording".

    I'm unable to 'see', apparently, my Hopper via a direct Ethernet connection off my router.

    I am able to program, of course, on the TV itself but not via the Ethernet connection.

    I'm talked with 'technical support'. They've had me reset, reboot, my computer, my router/cable device 'modem', the television, the hopper, everything.

    Still nowhere.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    If I understand correctly, your Hopper does not appear "online", correct? Or are you not able to access the "My DVR" portion of DRA because you can not find it?

    Just a silly question, you do have a Sling hooked up to your Hopper?

    He got it figured out, he was using the wrong Ethernet port.
