    All of the literature I've been sent so far says "Hopper with Sling". Hope no one minds if I refer to them as H1 and H2. much simpler.:)

    Are you doing that at home or at CES ? Pretty much you're telling about demo or beta box.
    Have you seen white label on a back of H ? Not ? OK, I'll tell you now - it has a name: HOPPER 2000; but a few SW versions back the name changed to simple Hopper. So, the XiP813 still in docs, but for customers. Expect same for production of XiP913 aka Hopper 2.

    I thought that the "2000" moniker went out of date 13 years ago anyway :p .

    I guess what confused me is the fact you come out and say the OFFICIAL NAME is Hopper2, then in a later post you says its the 913 aka Hopper2. :confused:

    OK, the name would find it's own way to orders and paperwork ... Relax.

    Or you could get a second node and put a jumper between the client lines on each node and all 3 Hoppers will see each other.

    Somebody already said this earlier... but I've never seen this as officially supported by either Dish or Echostar. All it takes is a firmware update to disable that functionality IF they decide to implement it in some new way.

    As I said earlier, I told DIRT about issues with 3 Hoppers on MoCA and not long after, a software update was released and what do you know, it fixed the issues. Pretty sure that they don't plan on disabling it.

    As for WiFi getting disabled... I can say without a doubt that it won't be disabled. I am however not allowed to say how/why I know this ;) .

    Why not leave the format alone and transfer the native file (MPEG-4, right?). Enable this function over a USB WiFi adapter. Leave it overnight if it takes a long time. Let the user worry about how much room he has on his mobile device. And let's see support for Android and BlackBerry 10.

    For one, your content providers don't want HD files floating about.

    For another, the average user won't like the fact, or understand it, when two movies eats up all his storage and nothing more can be transferred.

    There is no video compression format what would beat MPEG-4 or VC-1.
    Only transcoding to reduced resolution and larger GOPs will make it less size.
    Floating ? They will regardless any restriction...

    Is there something you are saying here other than the obvious?
