Physically, not the problem. Signal looping with 2 connections causing instability is the problem unless Hoppers are separated with an isolator. One connection is the correct hook up - to one Hopper with bridging enabled or one HIC connected with a tap into a Joey or a Hopper coax.

What kind of instability? I have both Hoppers connected with no obvious issues, at least none I'm aware of. I Sling off one, I have Joeys connected, one Joey per Hopper. I don't use the DishOnline services aside from Slinging. Joeys do show all Red in the MoCA menu, but MoCA bars are green, no HIC just hardwired Ethernet.
I guess I could disconnect one and see what happens.
Thank you and
Best of luck
