Congrats.

Two months in and I'm still liking my Hopper and Joeys.

Only one reboot and one missed recording.

Auto Hop is only on the local networks not on USA, SCIFI, etc..


I wonder why only locals ? and not the other channels. Is it some sort of added code that dish adds to the stream

Just to be clear, the Hopper only has three tuners (unless you are meaning to get two Hoppers), during prime time, one can be used to record the big four networks to make six at once. It is not full time and you cannot choose different channels and if Dish does not supply all four of the networks, it would be less. And yes, if Dish loses the lawsuits on the auto hop, it would be turned off.


WOW When i read the DIsh website it said 6 ! How miss leading is THAT ! grrr

How you missed main thread here ? Where the "3 tuners/6 programs" gimmick discussed ad nauseum.

Guess you missed the fine print (and it is there). It basically is true, but it is also misleading.

Once I understood that 1 tuner is actually recording FOUR different shows at once and I then had 2 additional tuners to either record on both or record on one and watch live TV on one, it was quite clear and I think great!

I love it. I have had a chance to play with it now for a few days and about the only down side, for me, is that I can't make as many 'groups' or as they are now called 'folders' as I could on the Vip722K. Other than that, the Hopper has many more features the 722 didn't have.

For just the DH (Dear Husband) and I, the 1 Hopper & 2 Joey's work fantastic.....so far. ;)
