Question #1 Should I have Bridgeing shut off on all hoppers.
Question #2 Do Joeys have Bridgeing if so should I shut them off.
Question #3 Should I Link one Joey to each Hopper if so any Coax changes.
Question #4 What is better Moca of Cat5 to communicate.
Question #5 Should I remove Coax to Joeys and only run Cat5 Ethernet.
Does anybody have any sugestions

Thanks

And yes it cost me Big to buy the 2nd and 3rd Hopper W/Sling. 8 Year Customer

Dish was supposed to send me OTA Modules but i have not recived them yet.

1) Bridging OFF on all Hoppers except the one connected to Ethernet. There is no need to connect the other Hoppers to Ethernet if one is connected and bridged.
2) I do not believe there is bridging on the Joeys. Coax or Ethernet is fine ... you do not need to connect both.
3) The Joey to Hopper Link will work regardless of cabling (unless you have an isolator in the path or problems with your wiring).
4) MoCA should be faster.
5) It depends on your wiring. If everything is working on coax leave well enough alone (there is no need to connect anything else to Ethernet if one Hopper is bridged). But the flexibility to run a Joey on Ethernet (only) is nice.

They should be plug and play. Just follow the on screen directions.

The big issue would be getting the signal to the tuners since you cannot mix the satellite feeds with MoCA with the OTA signal. Separate OTA cabling will be required.
