I have confirmed you can set a manual timer on dish.sling.com, but found no way to do it on dishonline.com. They have been saying for a long time that dish.sling.com is going away, but it hasn't yet. I don't know if you need the sling adapter to use this. I do have one. After setting a timer this way, on the receiver in the timer list, it just picked one show to show as the timer name, I don't know what would happen if that show isn't on one night. I set up a seven day timer from 9pm CDT to 2am CDT on Hallmark channel (185). I may report back on what happens, if anyone is interested.
Years ago, the 721 receiver handled this great. If a DVR event had more than one program in it, it would list them all, and you could jump to any of them. I expected better handling of this on the Hopper. I didn't expect manual timers to be removed completely! I've not had any experience with at 922, so was unaware they had already been removed from that receiver.

mistyped 722 for 721
