Just had Hopper 3 installed - No record light - Bummer
With 16 tuners, you are unlikely to worry about any tuner watching availability. If you want to verify if a recording is in progress, press DVR and you'll see a red button on all the icons being recorded. It is what it is, and was discussed ad nauseum when the Hopper3 came out.
Or options TV activity will show if things are recording also.
Yeah, the light was helpful when you had 1 or 2 tuners... but when you have 16 tuners... either you're not going to have any conflicts OR you're really going to need to look at the TV Viewing screen to see what is going on as that light really wouldn't tell you much.
AW...Dish shoudda put 16 little red LEDs along the front, Christmas in July!
The record light tells one important thing (and its the thing that is needed) "is something recording yes or no". That is what is important, doesn't matter if you have one tuner or 1000 tuners.
You may need that, I don't. I'm sure that some would agree with you, and some would never miss it.
FWIW, I never pay attention to the record LED on my HR44. If DIRECTV would disable the LED I would never notice. I know this is a DISH forums but I am just trying to add to the discussion at hand.

I've seen the red light on my 922 come on when it wasn't recording... and go off when it was still recording... so I learned to ignore it and check the status of the tuners.
