Sling Box working with PC, tablets, smartphone thru own proprietary programs/applets.
You are out of luck with mentioned devices. Try to get Sling Catcher - the device never been in regular customer's hands, but some members here claimed they used it.

Good luck with getting one of those to work. I've tried using 3 of them in 2 different locations with 2 different 922s and had no luck getting them to work. I haven't tried them on a Hopper but if they didn't work with the 922, I very highly doubt they will work with the Hopper since the Joey kind of defeats the purpose of a Sling Catcher to provide HD in a different room connected to the same box. I would go as far as betting that there is no SW support in the Hopper for a Sling Catcher.

I'm thinking I'm going to have to find a way to get a wire out there.
