I had the Hopper installed and that went wonderfully. Now I am trying to use my Slingbox-Pro with the Hopper using the Dish app on the Ipad. It says Invalid Finder ID. This worked just fine with the ViP-722K.

I can still use the $30 App from Sling, but I really wanted to use the Dish App. I contated Dish and support passed me to Sling Media. I contacted Sling Media and support passed me to Dish.

Any thoughts?

Sling App with Slingbox Pro, Dish App with 922 or Dish USB Sling Adapter. That's all.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

I had Hopper installed yesterday and my Dish app would not recognize my sling adapter I had for my 722, it was still showing my 722 receiver # instead of the Hopper. I had to delete my Dish app and then re-install it using my Hopper's receiver #. I then re-booted the system. It works fine now.

Please PM me your receiver number so I can submit a trouble report to our engineers. There are a few receivers that display this error when attempting to sling while away from their home network. Please let me know. Thanks.

The DISH app will not work with any of the other Sling devices besides the Sling Adapter and the ViP922 receiver. If you subscribe to Blockbuster @Home you will still be able to access the On Demand movies using the DISH Remote Access iPad app, but will not be able to stream live TV or DVR recordings unless you are using the app from Sling.
