    I have two Hoppers on S217 and when I go to the DVR menu I do not see where to select a Hopper. I don't see anything in the menu settings to turn this on. Both Hoppers are on the network. Any ideas.

    I've had that problem once. I had to reboot the other hopper and it came back.

    Just rebooted both Hopper's and still do not see the Hopper's in the DVR Menu. Is there a setting somewhere to turn on?

    Hmm, there is one isolator on one Hopper that feeds the Joey. Could that be it?

    Alright, it is the isolator. Now that I found a diagram with the Duo Node (which I do have) now need to remove the isolator and run a line directly to the Joey. Now I remember the tech installing the isolator since it was his first install just to make sure there wouldn't be a problem.

    Thanks for the tip Puck! :joy:
