I have to replace my nearly dead 722. I inquired about a Hopper and I've been quoted a $50.00 upgrade fee only which is not a deal killer.

But I haven't been keeping up here. Are you still blocked from watching saved EHD recordings from channels you don't subscribe to? That probably would be a deal killer for me.


This was a bug when the Hopper first came out. It has been working great for about the last 10 months.

That's the "old" Hopper, not the newest one (Hopper with Sling) right?

$50 is the average cost for Hopper 2000 upgrades. Hopper with Sling is $200-300 from all the posts I've been reading.
