Just upgraded from a 722 to a Hopper today. My nightly routine is to watch some recorded show via sling on my iPad while in the kitchen. With the Hopper I couldn't get the sling to play any recorded shows (I had a few). Never had much problem with the 722. I contacted 2nd level chat support. The guy (Thomas (ID: [***]
)) insisted that if I am recording anything then the sling cannot access recorded shows. He said that all sling enabled DVRs work this way. I told him I've had two 722's that worked fine watching a recorded show while recording another (as long as 1 tuner was free). He said they were not working correctly.
What's going on here? I cant imagine not being able to use the sling adapter if a tuner is recording something. That would make my sling completely useless for me because I record a lot of shows in the evening (even more now with PrimeTimeAnytime) which is also the time I need the sling.
