    I was a happy Dish customer for many years until the AMC debacle, and my brother-in-law worked for Comcast and got me a good deal. I'm still in that first year of obligation, but plan to return to Dish in July. Previously I had a 622 receiver in my basement on my main TV, with an output to existing internal cabling to a second TV on the upper floor. I also had a Comcast internet line running in to the top floor of our town house, and ran both Powerline and wireless internet from that. My question is if that same setup will work with the Hopper/1 Joey setup? I like Comcast speed but can't stand anything else about them (and my b-i-l no longer works for them...ha). Also, I had two external hard drives full of movies that I had recorded. Will they be accessible on the Hopper/1 Joey system I have described?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jim:)

    The line for the Hopper need to be direct from the node and cannot be combined with any other source (cable, internet, OTA, ect.) but I believe the line for the Joey may be used (I am not totally sure on this, I'm sure others will chime in). Any recordings on an EHD used with a 622, 612, 722(k) and 922 will work so you should have no problem there.

    The Moca line to the Joeys runs 650-875Mhz. Comcast internet downstream also falls into this band in some areas. Could cause issues.

    Unless you maintained the account no. The key for those drives belong to the old account.

    As long as he restarts the old account and doesn't get a new account, shouldn't be an issue. And restarting the old account is what should happen (should being the operative term here).
