    PTA is 'patented' feature what is constitute major four.

    [We're all have dreams. :)]

    BTW, sat companies shuffling channels between sats and tpns very often, so your proposal is 'shooting of moving target'.

    I seriously doubt that my local PBS is suddenly going to move to another satellite from the rest of my locals. But since we know that the Hopper is recording an entire transponder and then pulling out the PTAT data, we know that a tuner can record an entire transponder. It's not too big of a stretch for the Hopper to find "savings" of tuners in other areas as well.

    I have two hoppers and when I switch to the other hopper and watch a show at the end after deleting it reverts back to the DVR recordings on the hopper I'm using. I would prefer it to stay on the same hopper as last show I watched. Saving me from the extra steps of going to that hopper.

    SW update last night:

    - S2.17 and S2.68 got new Apps package: AX057 instead of AX054.

    Please report what is changed.

    Added Olympics app ... press the BLUE button while watching any live TV channel (not just the Olympic channels) for updates, schedules and stories.

    So that's why they disabled the BLUE button shortcut for the network settings menu.

    Weirdly, I've been experiencing remote control lockup since the update. Soft reboot brings it back.

    Had to reset my Hopper this Sunday. First time since I got it installed on the 4th. All I did was, from a Joey, switched from the Olympic basketball channel to the Olympic soccer channel. The screen went blank and the Hopper lost connection with the Joey. I waited 10 minutes for it to come back, when it didn't, I reset the Hopper. Has been fine since.

    Anyone notice that when a program is recording and you watch it while it is recording but stop watching before it is finished recording that you lose your spot?

    For example, I was recording a 6 hour Olympics program on a channel not in PTAT. The program had been recording for about 2 hours already when I began watching it for around an hour. I stopped watching at that point by hitting the stop button. When I go back to continue watching the recording later, it starts over at the beginning. Am I doing something wrong?

    Unfortunately that is the way DISH DVRs work, even before the Hopper.
    If you pause the program until the end of the recording your place will be kept but if you go watch something else or stop the recording your place is lost.

    Yes, it is quirky, but if the program is still recording, Dish receivers lose your place if you stop the program. The solution is to use the "Swap" button (only works on Hoppers, not Joeys unfortunately) to change to another tuner. You can then "Swap" back to your program without losing your place.

    One of my Hoppers stopped recording the Olympics on the PTAT NBC channel after 1 1/2 hrs last night. The other recorded the full event OK. Don't know what that was about.

    Yeah Dish has always used the paying customer as beta testers it seems. However hopefully it is true that at least the employees are the guinea pigs now.


    As for S217, well personally I'm anxiously awaiting a new release as S217 does a terrible job of H2H playback for me.

    I too think 217 sucks. I haven't had any problems until this release. Now it locks up/ freezes, the remote goes into crawl mode where I hit a button and it takes 20 sec. to execute. But most likely it will get worse.

    I wouldn't blame the S2.17

    H and J working fine, if not count FW designer's "tricks" with trick mode.
    But as I mentioned before a few times, the H has new 4x bigger heat-sink and small fan on it running 24/7.

    I think a lot of my problem is heat. But on a open shelf in a air conditioned house I don't think I have to fix dish screw ups. Today when it froze I could hear the fan going full blast but just a little late. They need to fix the software so fan comes on or goes faster sooner.
