    I just checked again and I see it there as an option to order, but it looks like the Add To Cart button isn't working. It looks like it is there and other reported it being there as well a few days ago. Maybe try chatting in and asking a rep if they can manually order one for you.

    The Add to Cart button does work. You have to scroll back up the page to see your cart.

    I guess its been a long day and my eyes don't work. You are right, so they are in stock and the button is working to add them to the cart.

    Do you have to have a hopper on your profile to see it, because I still cannot...

    Kind of a chicken or egg thing...why order a hopper w/o ota ready to hook up for the install?
    Do the installers deliver the ota dongle along with the hopper/joeys?
    Any DIRTs out there? I'm ready to upgrade...almost.

    Well I'm upgrading soon, order is in. Got the dongle at the same time, which will be shipped in time to have the installer plug and play it while he is at it. I had to keep reminding the chat lady about it throughout the order process...

    H/2J install today took 3 hours, replaced my 722/622.
    I have 100% signal on my favorite ota channels but shortly after viewing all of them, they all now show a blank screen. So I double checked...100%.
    My antenna has a clear shot to the mountain top transmitters and there is no cause for multipath. The 722 rarely had an interuption.
    So what gives and how is this fixed?
    DIRT???

    Rescan the locals and it should fix the problem.

    The nightly reboot also fixes the problem.

    I never depend on making a recording on the OTA since I never know if it is working.

    This is a hopper feature?
    As long as it works...
    Good advice on depending on recordings from ota.

    Yes, and it is on the 722 as well. But on the 722 you could tell it what time you would like it to perform the updates. With the Hopper, it starts asking at about 1am (for me) and if I decline it asks again a bit later. This repeats, presumably until it gets the reboot it wants.

    I was trying to archive a long program off to the DVD recorder late one night after going to bed, but (even after declining the first system maintenance prompt) it rebooted right during the middle of the recording.

    This needs to be addressed. Once you say not to reboot, that should be it for that night. And bring back the option to tell it when to do the "updates". Not everyone has the same schedule!

    perhaps better OTA antenna will cure the issue ? or signal booster ?
