There was official word: "Summer", so just wait a few months for the "Summer".
Soon. Very soon.
I hope so. I'm also hoping the tweak the software for a seamless 2 Hopper set up. If like to have a 2 Hopper 3/4 Joey set up with OTA for all, but have the 2 Hopper appear as one Host unit.
I would not hold my breath for that one. At best I could see a Joey jumping from one Hopper to another if there were no tuners available ... but I would not expect a complete six tuner integration (eight with an OTA tuner on each Hopper). If they do that it will be a pleasant surprise, but I don't expect that level of integration.
Just want the ability to have everything see all scheduled recordings so people are not scheduling duplicates. I'm liking how the Genie does it with its 5 tuners, but prefer the HD channels I'd get from Dish. I'm watching them both. Unless, Time Warner delivers a good DVR solution I'm going to be leaving them.
That's true. They never said which summer.
Nor which hemisphere!
The installer arrived today without an OTA module.
No surprise here
Waiting for OTA for the hopper and some other comments about the Genie (HR34) made me go look at DirectTV, something I've never really done seriously before (Dish customer for almost 14 years). After seeing their setup with the HR34 and the MRV boxes and the fact that I could get a dual OTA tuner today, can anyone tell me why it's worth waiting for E* to release OTA for the Hopper? I've done some research but haven't really seen a direct comparison between the two systems. Thoughts?
DISH has more HD channels
DirecTV has more sports channels (NFL/MLB)
Sometimes it comes down to personal preference.
My self I could not stand the DirecTV Guide.
I would suggest going to a DireCTV retailer and to try the Genie out before getting into a 2 year contract.
For the Hopper go to a Blockbuster or DIsh Retailer and try it out.
Other than one has more Movies and one has more Sports, I have had both. They are real similar, think about it, they are competitors, they have to be close.
You need to do a detailed comparison every two years at a minimum. Using someone else's results is folly as their needs are doubtless different than yours.
If you truly don't like upsetting the apple cart (and it seems obvious that you don't), you need to make sure you look at the long-term pricing as the introductory stuff from both companies is hard to dismiss.
I just wanted to let everyone know the Hopper OTA module was released earlier today. The module connects via USB and has one built in tuner. The Hopper OTA module is available at www.mydish.com for $30.
Shows out of stock!:eek2:
Oh ! Summer came early this year! Perhaps ancient Mayas screwed one more time ?
Give me two, please.
Nah, Indian Summer.
crap, wait, am I allowed to say that anymore?
I thought you got snow and heavy rain already ... Here is almost the time, just little cold midnight.
One tuner fail.
Can more than one be used?
Does it stream content to the Joeys?
Can one be used at each Hopper in a two hopper install?
Local install claims that the Hopper software is updated to accommodate a two Hopper setup where the Hoppers act as one cohesive unit. IE: a 4TB DVR. If this is so, I can overlook the one tuner for OTA and will order a two Hopper, three Joey setup. I would like to be able to record both my local news feeds on occasion, but could live without.
Still says not avl on the store , when do they update it? At night?
Do you have to call to order it?
