Need advice on how to configure a system.
Posted 22 January 2013 - 01:06 PM
I am not interested in recording all the networks every night since I watch very few programs on other than CBS but I do watch numerous programs on the non-network sat channels. So, the PTAT feature is of no interest to me meaning I would often need more than the three tuners available on a single Hopper making a second Hopper necessary to go with a Joey for the second set.
I was just told by a Dish phone rep that I could not get a second Hopper since I only have two TVs. In other words it seems Dish wants to configure my optimal system for me rather than allowing me to. Is this inflexibility normal with Dish or can accommodations be made? The phone rep was adamant about the rules...two TVs allow for only one Hopper.

You can see and view each Hopper from the other, but you cannot control the other hopper otherwise.
You can use the Dish app on an android or iPad with the Dish app.
