    Wait until people find out they cannot record 6 things at one time with the Hopper.

    And I thought people were against forced recordings to their DVRs?

    What? This post seems out of nowhere... and technically is incorrect anyway, because with the primetime anytime recording 4 LiLs, and the 2 other tuners... you certainly could be recording 6 things at one time.

    Can the Hopper whole home work in conjunction with other existing Dish set top boxes to add more tuners, storage etc?

    No, because they're not using the same tech. Dual-Hopper integration is Coming Soon, giving six total tuners and 2 TB of storage.

    Three. Six shows using PTAT. "Cannot record six things at one time" is what you said, and you're incorrect.

    To add more tuners to a H/J system, just add an additional Hopper to the mix. It was said at last weeks Team Summit that an OTA tuner for use with the H/J system was close to release. No timeline though. As far as addl. space goes, the external hard drive solution is still a supported option as has been on some previous receivers.

    These questions have been split from the customer satisfaction thread because they had nothing to do with that thread.

    The USER cannot select 6 shows at one time to record.

    That is a fact.

    Looks like a DirecTV subscriber has buyer's remorse and has decided to take a dump in the competitor's front yard.
    The Hopper has three tuners. This is not classified information, anyone doing the slightest bit of research before signing a two year contract will know. PTAT records an entire transponder, up to four specific events at one time from the major networks using one tuner, while the other two tuners are open for live viewing or recording. That means six recordings during PTAT. PTAT can be toggled on and off, this is not a "forced recording" and I agree that your research is flawed.

    Even that isn't a fact.

    The user can in fact select 6 shows to record at the same time as long as primetime anytime is enabled and four of those programs are recordings during that period.

    The receiver will in fact let you set those individual timers and will automatically separate them from the primetime block later.

    I grant you that you can't select just any 6 programs from any channel... but neither Dish nor anyone ever said that you could.

    I'm beginning to think this thread has no point rather than the benefit of the doubt I gave for it just being in the wrong thread earlier.

    that's just for the hopper right? I'm asking what would it cost for the hopper and 3 joey's?
    That's the only way I see 6 tuners.

    OTA isn't a common setup anymore, as much as the 20 people here at dbstalk make it out to be.
    I can tell you right now my Hr 34 and Hr 23 cost
    $26 in fees ($16 with my auto pay) thats HD,DVR and Whole home Dvr service, but that can record 5 shows while watching 2 live programs. Or recording 7 different shows, and can still stream up to 3 other rooms at the same time.
    So what again can the hopper and joey's do?

    Joeys have no tuners in them. OTA is pretty common. And oh yeah, I forgot: I'm not wasting any more of my time responding while you're sitting there going "trolllololllolll!" behind your keyboard.
