Hopper Transfer App with Original Hopper + Sling Adapter
Posted 26 January 2013 - 06:29 PM
Anybody know if a hardware update is required to give me the capability to save content on my iPad or will Dish be able to make it happen with my current system (even eventually).

I know the Transfer App only works with the new Hopper... just want to know if it's a hardware issue or a business decision to make the app incompatible with three month old Hoppers/Sling Adapters.
Hardware limitations and the HWSs chipset can support it.

But... that said... I would kind of be surprised now if Dish goes back and adds that support for the Sling adapter on older Hoppers.
I can't think of any technical reason why it can't be possible, though... sure, the new Hopper w/ Sling is supposed to have a faster CPU... but we had some really old Dish receivers that supported transfer to those Archos devices... so I can't believe a Hopper with a Sling Adapter "can't" do it... but I can believe Dish will perhaps not enable it.
