My Dish equipment has all the outputs active. The last Direct receiver I had would only allow one active at a time. I normally "mirror" my home office receiver to my master bedroom and with Dish I can use a UHF remote and can change channels from any room in my house. Any suggestions on how to handle remote channel changing? Or do I have to suck up $6.00 a month to be able to change channels? If I use a Genie in my living room and a mini client in my kitchen will the video and sound be in sync? I ask this as they are close together and my Hopper and its client are about 5 seconds off and the echo affect does not work. I ended up removing the hopper client and "mirroring" my living room video/audio. Any help would be appreciated.
