    Hi all,

    I am having DISH installed this afternoon. Does anyone here know if the ethernet pass-through is working on the newest Hopper? I have one ethernet jack next to the main tv but would also like to hook up an XBox. It would be great if the pass-through worked but wonder if anyone is using it with success.

    You can get a 5 port switch for $20 so you don't have to worry about it and can add other devices to the network if need be.

    Thanks. I know that I can add a switch. I am asking if the pass through on the new Hopper is functional or not.

    "pass through" isn't that simple as named; it's SW drivers, it's router as SW piece ...

    I understand. Just checking to see if the functionality is there.
    No problem though - I just wired another outlet next to the tv.
    I was just trying to avoid crawling around in the attic.
