Hi all,

Presently I have a 722, connected to 1 HDTV, and 1 SDTV, and 1 211 connected to 1 HDTV.

It would seem that making a change to the Hopper technology would require me to get 1 Hopper and 2 Joeys, in order to make the 3 TVs workable.

Do I understand correctly that besides the $7 fee for each Joey, there is a monthly DVR fee of $6 and a DVR whole house fee of $4/mo?

At this point, I figure I would be looking at $11/mo then, or $132/year more for the Hopper setup than I have now with the 722/211 combo. And of course that doesn't count the installation fees.

Wow, am I figuring this correctly?

Many other way to verify the number:
- call CSR and get final price
- use dish web site for that
- ask DIRT member here via PM
- read threads/posts where the calculation has been done many times.
