My Hopper with sling keeps rebooting itself over and over. It will boot up bring up video on a channels then go black and then reboot all within 5 minutes.. I have hard booted the machine by pulling the power cord and letting it sit for 2 minutes. Didn't help.. Looks like I will be calling dish.. My unit was brand new.. Any others out there have this problem?

If you replace the box, and it happens with a different box, there's something in the location that's causing the problem.
"Belligerent and numerous."
Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ
AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

Also, is it just me or is the Hopper menu system way less sophisticated than the 722 's? E.g. If I am watching multiple episodes of a series on the DVR the 722 has the sense to go to the next episode by default while the Hopper goes back to the main menu and you have to search for where you were every time.

check its temp, get it from counters, touch underneath by hand...

We are on our 3rd Hopper. The technician came out, was here all day, re-ran all of the cables, checked the ground, played around with the internet connection etc. STILL doing it. So we have a technician coming out in the morning. We told them to just bring our old boxes back in case they can't get it to work. Thank God we have an Apple TV with Netflix and Hulu. We are seriously talking about dropping satellite altogether and going with internet only.
My only question is could it be someting around the internet connection? We don't have the best internet connection as we live out in the country but it is good enough to stream Netflix. It buffers sometimes during a movie or TV show but not horrible.

well they replaced my hopper with sling again. So far my new hopper is running fine. I have no idea what the problem was.. I think the boxes may have some bad hardware or bad software.
