In Home Media, the device list says "You do not have any supported devices on your home network. Please connect a compatible devices or launch a supported application."
DIRT, any documentation for Home Media available? Also when will Pandora be listed among the apps?

Anyone from DIRT care to add anything? Is DLNA active on the Hopper units at this time?

SlingTV, Tablo and Plex to Roku 3s and Chromecasts on a Vizio 42" in the living room and a Toshiba 32" in my bedroom. Xbox 360 client on a Westinghouse 42" in the game room. Tablets EVERYWHERE!
I used to update the Dish Network FAQ but not anymore.

From our contact at DISH this is what I know on the topic...
Here is how the system works.
1. With a direct connect to Hopper – Hopper can access all apps, BB@Home, and DLNA
Joey can access all apps (EXCEPT DLNA HOME MEDIA) and BB@Home
2. To get DLNA to a Joey
Need to direct connect the Joey OR use a HIC
Also there are reports of App freezing – DISH has identified an issue that will be fixed shortly.
Many reports of DLNA not working – DISH is looking into it.
Not that this is a help right now...but DISH is reading and this aware and looking into resolving the issues.

Perhaps you misread about BB ... it works via the Hopper (since the content is downloaded to the Hopper for viewing).
DLNA problems mostly on joey. Have tried using moca from hopper and direct connect to joey. Joey will not see anything on the network. I do not understand the admin's post saying no homesharing or BB on joey because joey is supposed to have all features of the hopper except picture in picture.
It is the home media (DLNA) that requires either a HIC or a direct Ethernet connection on each Joey. Everything else should work.
