Hello, does anyone know if its possible for me to upgrade to a hopper from my 722 , i also have a model 622 (i think) at a firends house...(this is my problem) if i switch to the hopper i cannot have the "other" box activated?

If i get the hopper and a joey, the joey couldnt be "somewhere else" i assume?

As you can tell i dont know much about the hooper and how all that works.
I just know i can only record two shows at once and unless i want to watch something thats already recored im screwed!

Any ideas? I dont want another subscrition/account.

If i switched to directv do they offer something that i could do like im wanting?

thanks in advance for your help

So you have a secondary receiver under the same account that you actively use at another location? lol
Thats against the Dish ToS.

What your wanting to do wont work and will probably get you caught.

Neither will do what you're asking. Mods, time to close the thread?

Not only is what you are asking not going to be possible, but you are already violating Dish terms of service. Closing the thread is probably the best answer you can hope for.
