I'm a longtime Directv customer who is looking at moving to Dish. I've checked our (er, my wife's) recordings this week and it seems that pretty much every night she has 4 recordings going on together - rarely on the broadcast networks so PTAT alone won't work for us (her).

Seems like I need 2 Hoppers, and 1 Joey. I've seen threads about installs/upgrades to this and seems like it always requires someone in the know to make it happen (Dish online ordering doesn't give that as an option).

Is it possible as a new install? What am I looking at as the upgrade fee for the second Hopper?

You have several options, you can order the setup you want through a local installer and not directly through Dish. You can try a PM to a DIRT member here to see if he can help you. Or you can order 2 Hoppers with 2 Joeys and refuse one of the Joeys when the installer sets you up.
