    Got my second hopper setup this morning and guy deactivated my Joey. I am able to see each others DVR's. The installer wasn't able to get it working. Thanks to the research I had done I was able to show him how to set it up. Thank god I am Joey free now and just have two Hoppers.

    Got it working how? Do you have a HIC in your installation?

    I do not have HIC. Have whole house wired Ethernet and coax. Hopper with sling is hooked up to Internet. Had to do a hard restart on my existing Hopper with sling. Turn on MOCA on hopper with sling and enable bridging. Can now toggle between each DVR while in the DVR menu.

    I'm curious, does anyone know if the new Hopper with Sling have any other improvements.

    Seems like they must have upgraded something inside the box besides just adding the sling but would be nice to know if anyone has noticed any change in operation or heard anything.

    I'm still in a bathroom remodel mode but getting close to upgrading to a dual Hopper dual Joey system and don't want to regret not getting at least one Hopper with sling although the sling thing isn't important to me.

    Seen same FW (production and beta ) spooling to both models, I would say, beside Ssling function. they are the same.

    Hopper w/ sling has a faster processor and more RAM. Also has the ability to do Hopper Transfers with an iPad. Also has built in wifi instead of needing an external adapter. That's what I can think of off the top of my head

    Thank you. That does make the Hopper with Sling a more interesting decision.
    I have a friend who thinks the original Hopper could use a faster processor. Now I need to make my decision on which one to get. I know the wife's Hopper will be the original version. She won't know the difference...........:grin:

    I can find out. Don't know off the top of my head, but as I recall, roughly twice as fast on the processor and twice as much RAM.

    If you'll give the CPU model and a size of RAM, then it will be easy to compare - H [aka H2k] got a lot more PR buzz with tech info.

    Glad you could Google it, so now you can believe me. Or is it some sort of conspiracy?

    Perhaps from dish ... never seen any PR from them regarding CPU and other tech tidbits of H2, like it was for H2k.
