Ok, shutting down for the night, and discovered one nice thing about the Hopper and Joey: Both have NO lights on at all when shut down! No glaring blue LED's like my 922 had. Kudos for this minor detail!
BTW, my Hopper and Joe's have worked flawlessly all day, including Sling, PTAT, and Blockbuster. I was seeing Blockbuster streaming > 20Mbps on my 30Mbps internet connection, through wireless. The search function wasn't working at first, but now it's working as expected.
I have to say, I upgraded for the PTAT feature mostly, and it's truly awesome. Just what I was hoping for. Amazing to record that may shows using a single tuner!
My config is pretty simple I guess; it's identical to the diagram here on page 5 of http://horizonent.ne...stem_JobAid.pdf
(except we're using a wireless USB dongle and have a Sling Adapter)
I'm amazed how much faster the Hopper changes channels than my 922 did, even if the new channel you change to is on a different satellite, it's very fast.
If I had to make one recommendation, it's do it like my installer did. Install the Hopper alone, turn it on and let it update and become fully operational (~20-30 minutes). Call Dish, activate all of the units including Joey's, then install the Joey's one at a time. That sequence worked perfect here. Also remember, all the units sit for 5-10 minutes when first turned on, and appear dead (Hopper's fan running full speed). Don't touch them, they will come to life!
