    Anyone have an issue with the Skip Function? I have a Hopper but this problem may well be generic for any Dish receiver.
    I get a delay of several seconds in either Skp Forward or Back. Then when it does 'move' the picture freezes for several seconds before resuming.
    This showed up recently, and is very annoying.
    I have not done a full reboot yet, if I notice a change that fixes it I will post it here.

    A FULL reboot (pulling the plug) cured it!

    The skip function is a joke on the hopper. Used to work great but now a piece of junk. Has been for many many months. Dish doesn't care enough about their products to fix. Just add more half baked features that don't work right.

    I really can't see that Skip works any differently as it every has. But I think there was also an error in my diagnosis.

    Investigating more I find the problem may well be related to an intermittent freezing issue in the original broadcasts and has nothing to do with recordings or skip (which is a recording function), as some of my older recordings before this last Sunday, are just fine on playback. But Sunday I saw freezing issues on live broadcasts even when not using skip.

    So, for now I am thinking the freezing was a temporary issue that I did not really notice except when playing back a recent recording. I'll see how things go from this point forward.

    Bad again, new receiver coming. Freezes on all recording playback or when using SKIP.
