    We are about to head out of town in our RV and we used to take our VIP622 with us just to watch all of the shows and movies we had recorded. Being trapped in a metal box in the middle of nowhere at night is the perfect time to catch up on all of our recordings. Even though we would get all of the initial errors that it couldn't find the signal we could still hit DVR and watch stuff.

    We have recently upgraded to the Hopper/Joey system and, of course, we have a bunch of stuff recorded. Before I start disconnecting everything I wanted to ask if anyone has used their hopper offline to watch recorded shows?

    Thanks.

    But can you also access your EHD?

    That needs authorization, so I believe the EHD would not work. I've never moved or disconnected my sat signal to test it out. Maybe someone ho has can verify..

    Because I know authorization is required for the EHD but I'm not sure the period of time before it stops working. I could find dozens of posts you've made thar have no purpose or answer or that make no sense.

    As for newbie here, I can tell you: EHD authorization is a history for 622+ devices.
    Read and learn before post.

    Are you saying an EHD connected to anything 622 and newer will continue to work without sat signal after a period of time? So if you no longer are a dish sub, you can continue to access ehd content from the 622? Or if no sat signal is connected for a while, you can still view ehd content?

    Thanks for the replies. I hate being in other cities and being stuck with live OTA only and I don't travel enough to justify getting a portable dish.

    Wifi at the RV parks is pretty hit or miss so I don't think the sling adapter would be of much use either.

    I won't be taking the EHD with us on this trip. It's attached the Hopper that's staying home.

    Thanks again.

    I tried using the hopper in a second home and it did not work - the unit did not like being on with no satellite connection. This was a while ago (when the hopper was first released) and maybe a newer firmware will work. Also it did not see the EHD. My 922 worked in the same situation but also did not see the EHD
